Love, love, love this new pet carrier. My Mia SofÃa was quite comfortable on our first trip to Home Depot in it. I even got stopped by a stranger who said she needed one just like that for her yorkie. Mia has put on a few pandemic pounds so this is a Large (she's 12-14 lbs). It fits well and Mia is very comfy. I was able to maneuver her into the bag quite easily. As you can tell, my iPhone fits in the top slot very snuggly which frees up my hand. It's very soft and sturdy. There is a clip for car keys as well. An added plus is when she's in the carrier while sitting on my lap. Her nails don't touch me and we are both comfortable.
I bought this 6 months ago when my son brought home an 8 week old chihuahua puppy and it has been in use almost daily. The quality is excellent and our little guy took to it from day one, and felt safe, snug and secure inside. We originally placed a small towel for him to cuddle up to inside while he was tiny but now he is almost 5 pounds and it still carries him comfortably. It is great to have to bring him out on the town almost everywhere you go!
It's exactly what I was looking for but my 5 pound Maltese just fits in it.
I tried the hammick style sling but it wasnt supportive enough and small in some ways for my 8 pound pom. This sling works great! It was easier to get her inside and she felt very secure. For reference she is a pom mix, about 8 pounds, from neck to tail 14 inches and 12 inches tall. There was a little extra space length wise too. I bought the size M for up to 10 lbs. Pics attached.
I take my 7-lb yorkie to the bike trail with me. She loves it. Before, when we both had good knees, we were long-distance athletes. Now we cruise up and down the hills , under bridges, and off the beaten track. We can ride further and see more. Then, when it's time to hike back up the hill, I let her out of the pouch, and she meanders her way back up the hill, enjoying the freedom and ease. Meanwhile, I'm huffing and puffing pushing the bike up hill. But we arrive to the top, she hops back inside, and away we go. Cruising our way back down for another round. All great fun. If you and your pet are an outdoorsey pair, you'll love this. I wish it was interchangeable, so I could swap sides and give my shoulder a break, but alas, not in this model.
