Product review: Sleepypod Air pet carrier

This is an unpaid and unsolicited review of Sleepypod’s new Air pet carrier. Sleepypod sent me a carrier, at my request, to try out and review.

Review of Outward Hound “Roll Along Pet Carrier”

Kyle Hansen of the Kyjen Company sent me three different Outward Hound carriers to try out and review. Kyjen has not paid for these reviews, and when I warned Kyle that they might not be love-fests, he said, essentially, “let ‘er rip.”

Dog Jaunt’s review policy requires me to give away freebies valued at over $50, and Kyjen has agreed that the products will be given away to Dog Jaunt readers. The Sling-Go Pet Carrier, reviewed on December 24, was won by  … Read more

American Girl pet carrier

This is my first annual birthday post, featuring something goofy from the world of pet travel

Say what you will about American Girl dolls and products, but you have to admit that the company’s attention to detail is amazing. Case in point: Your Just Like You doll’s pet (choose among puppies Coconut, Sugar and Honey, or cat Ginger) can be carried in a pink and white pet carrier complete with mesh ventilation panels on the short ends (each with  … Read more

Doggles’ Hemp Dog Carrier for a small dog

Photo by Doggles

I saw this carrier for the first time today, and I was really impressed. It’s made of hemp, which will please the environmentalist in you, and it’s well-constructed. The entire top is a mesh panel (with UV protection), and there are mesh panels on each end. The bottom has some rigidity and a fleece pad, so your dog has something stable (and comfortable) to rest on. There are a couple of useful pockets, a water-bottle pocket on  … Read more

Chloe in her SturdiBag (Large)
