About a week ago, I posted a rapturous review of the new pet carrier from TUMI, and then left you with a mystery. Under my rules, I cannot keep products worth more than $50, and the TUMI pet carrier, at $495, is well over that limit. I either have to return the carrier to TUMI, or give it away — but I told you that I was doing neither of those things, and that you would be excited by the … Read more

Twenty-one of you entered to win this RUNNUR cross-body pack, and you gladdened my heart, because all of you carry as much gear as I do when I walk Chloe — and many of you carry even more (including wonderful Janina, who includes a first aid kit and a mini survival book when she goes running or hiking with her Dachshund). Your ideas, as always, are great, and I encourage you all to read through the comments on the giveaway … Read more
Last Saturday, I posted a review of the RUNNUR cross-body pack, which is useful in a variety of contexts but which I considered as a dog-walking pack. It’s a nifty object, I decided — comfortable to wear and capacious.
At my request, RUNNUR sent me the medium-sized black pack with red stitching, which I think is the coolest of the available options. It costs $39, so under my rules I could keep it — and I was tempted to — but it’s … Read more
This tote clearly grabbed your attention — 53 of you (the highest number ever for a Dog Jaunt giveaway!) entered to win it. Although only one person ends up with the tote, we all win, as they say, because your comments with your ideas of things to do in-town with your pup were terrific. Thank you so much — I’ll gather them into a post tomorrow, so they can easily be found again by later readers.
And who … Read more
Last Friday, I posted a review of the Incognito tote from SturdiProducts. It’s a roomy tote — roomy enough, in fact, to hold your dog, her leash, and a small purse’s worth of your own gear — and it’s remarkably discreet. I bought one for myself, after posting the review.
SturdiProducts sent me the tote in maroon (“Bordeaux,” they call it). It costs $65, so I am obliged by my own rules to give it away. My thanks … Read more
Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway I announced last Monday for a large all-black The One Bag pet carrier (value: $140)! This time, I asked entrants to leave a comment with their best pet travel tip — and the comments were so terrific that I’ll be publishing them in a separate post tomorrow. I’m bursting with pride — Dog Jaunt readers are such clever, thoughtful people.
But the giveaway, you ask — who won? The randomly-chosen … Read more
Last Tuesday, I posted a review of The One Bag, a pet carrier that can be lengthened by unzipping gussets at both ends — and collapses into a neat rectangular packet when you’re not traveling.
One for Pets sent me their large-sized carrier, which is roughly 19″L x 11.5″W x 11.5″H pre-expansion (and can gain 4 more inches in length). It’s all black, which I prefer because it minimizes the perceived size of a carrier. The large-sized carrier … Read more
In 1994, Alastair Sawday began publishing guides aimed at travelers seeking “special” travel lodging experiences — meaning, as the Alastair Sawday’s site explains, places with warmth, charm, authenticity, humor and style. The Alastair Sawday’s catalog now includes several dozen guidebooks, and a very useful website, focusing on places to stay in Europe (Britain, France, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Spain) and Morocco.
The most recent addition to the list is Alastair Sawday’s Special Places to Stay: Dog-friendly Breaks in Britain, and the … Read more
Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway I announced last Monday for a regular-sized all-black Kobi Pet Carrier (value: $95)! It was really helpful to me to hear about the size of your dogs, the kinds of carriers you already have — and the fact that many of you don’t have a carrier yet, and are just dipping your toes into the in-cabin pet experience. The randomly-chosen winner is Debra Lee, entrant #17, who has an 8″ … Read more
Last Wednesday, I posted a review of the Kobi Pet Carrier, which I loved because it’s beautifully made and because a gusset concealed in one end can unzip, adding a full 3 inches of length to your pet’s carrier whenever you choose. In the world of in-cabin carriers for small pets, that’s solid gold.
Kobi sent me their regular-sized carrier, which measures 18″L x 13″W x 10″ H before the gusset is deployed. It’s all black, which I … Read more
