Here at, we understand that playing with your pup inside the house just isn’t enough! We want to bring out dogs with us as often as possible, to the park, to travel, and to stores. 

For small dogs, a dog carrier is essential for safely bringing your dog with you on bike rides, motorcycle rides, in the car, or just while out on a walk. That’s why we took the time to research and test the best dog carriers out there.

We’ve looked at some of the most important features for a dog carrier, like comfort, safety, ventilation, durability, and size. 

Looking for a dog carrier that you can use as a backpack to distribute the weight while your pooch comes along for the ride? Here are a few guides to get you started:

If you aren’t a fan of the backpack style dog carriers, don’t worry! We have guides for sling carriers, rolling carriers, and even carriers that will become a part of your style! Here are some roundups of other styles of dog carriers:

If you and your dog are all about adventure and like to go fast on wheels, whether on a motorcycle or a bicycle, we’ve found some dog carriers that will work for that, too!

And finally, we’ve compiled some detailed reviews about specific dog carriers that owners love, so that you can always feel like you’re making the right choice in selecting a carrier for your dog. After all, adventure is out there; why should your dog have to stay behind?
