How much does your furry friend mean to you? If you truly adore your pet, you want to go places with them, and so you need something to carry them in. Being able to bring your pooch to the grocery shop is exciting, and a dog backpack carrier makes your life so much easier. There are also moments your small dog isn’t feeling well or simply wants to stay by your side. A pet sling is an ideal solution in such situations. This accessory frees your hands and allows you to perform other tasks as your pup rests comfortably in it.

Benefits of a Dog Carrier Sling
A dog gets tired when forced to walk long distances, especially when it is a puppy. Some people can even step on them unintentionally and, in worst cases, kick them when they block the way.
You should treat your pet dog like a baby and carry them when your attention is placed elsewhere.
A pet sling contains a huge pocket and a shoulder strap. Once the animal is in the dog carry bag, they ride freely and safely, and you can go wherever you want with your dog or cat.

Here are the reasons you should consider small dog carriers:

Durable and stable - You can multitask without worrying about dropping your furry friend.
Easy to clean - They are machine washable so you can have them looking smelling fresh again after use.
Hands-free carriage - You get more freedom to perform other chores as your pet stays safe in the sling.
Lightweight - Unlike typical dog strollers, slings are made out of light fabric which you can wear as you do with a scarf. You can keep them in your tote bags, and no one will notice.
Adjustable - You can adjust the fit as your canine grows old.
Affordable - Slings are definitely cheaper than common carriers in the market.
Fashionable - They are not only functional but also super-stylish. You can choose from a variety of designs to complement your outfit or personal style. Most are made of cotton material hence the design possibilities are endless.
Secure - If your pet gets anxious in crowds, a pet sling is the best way to make your dog feel protected.
Convenient sizes - The pouch works well for all pets below 10 pounds. But the strap is adjustable in order to fit different shoulder sizes and position the pet as required. If your dog weighs more than 10 pounds, you might want to shop for a dog carrier backpack.
Comfortable - They distribute the load evenly across the body of the owner. It becomes easier to hold puppies for longer periods of time. The strap can even be switched from one shoulder to the other.
Note that most slings are made for very small dogs, who weigh between 5 and 15 pounds. If your dog is larger than this, you’ll probably want to look for a backpack-style carrier.

Should I Use a Dog Stroller?
Most of the time, if you have one dog, you won't find much use in purchasing a dog stroller. However, if you have two or smaller dogs and you need to get them somewhere safe, then you may find they will feel safe and relaxed while being contained in a dog stroller.
Smaller dogs often need more attention and focus than larger dogs when in public and having a dog stroller is just one way you can maintain this attention and focus while still having access to convenience. However, if you find that your dog becomes too anxious while riding in a dog stroller, you may have to carry him instead.

Important Things to Look for in a Pet Sling:

The Material
If you want your pets to ride comfortably for lengthier periods, you need a comfy backpack. The best options are cotton and fleece materials. Polyester is another cozy fabric to consider. A snug sling soothes your pet even when the weather is unfavorable.

Collar Clips
These can be metallic or plastic clips designed to secure your puppy in the pouch. They prevent him from jumping out. But they are only meant for emergency backup. They are used in together with harnesses as opposed to dog collars, thus preventing common neck injuries.

Zippers And Closures
A safety clip is important, but you also want another closing mechanism for extra security and containment. Zippers close the bag while some slings incorporate snaps, Velcro, and buttons instead. With these closure systems, your small dog gets to stick out his head while you cinch a zipper behind him. However, there are particular zippers you should avoid if your pup has long hairs. You need something that won't snag your pet.

High-quality slings come with adjustable straps to give the ultimate fit. These dogs carry bags straps use buckles or metal rings to adjust the length. These features are extremely important for average-height pet owners.

Comfort Pads
To help you feel comfortable, some slings incorporate a padded shoulder strap. And for the sake of your pup, some manufacturers incorporate thick pads and cushions at the bag bottom. The pads protect the pouch from the dog’s paws.
