Small Dog Carriers - Sherpa Ultimate on Wheels

Traveling with your pet is an interesting experience. Kind of like traveling with kids, it looks great on paper, until you set out for the adventure.

And, usually, it’s a grand adventure with all the hiccups and speed bumps along the way.

So what do you do to smooth out the obstacle course? Find ways to make it more fun for everyone. Including your pet.

This starts with the perfect pet carrier, preferably with wheels.

Finding one that will be good for all travel expectations isn’t as easy as you’d think. Since this is an investment, and one I plan on only doing once, I really had to check around.

That’s how I found: The Sherpa™ Ultimate On Wheels™.

The Sherpa Carrier is made for small to medium dogs, my dog is around 15 pounds and she fits into it comfortably.

She’s not big on staying inside too long. However, we took her in the car and she did well.

But her favorite is having her head out to look around. To explore and to feel part of the family.

Having wheels on the carrier is great for all terrains. Since we enjoy nature walks and she gets tired quickly, we bring it along and are able to roll it.

I really recommend this pet carrier. It is easy to work with. Has a super soft bottom for your doggy to feel like they are in their own bed. Net covering everywhere so the dog doesn’t feel like it’s suffocating and can see you at all times.

Plus, there are plenty of ways to open up so they can stick their heads out, but still stay secure in the bag.

This has been of the best buys my family has done for our puppy.
