With the arrival of summer, the time has come to choose a suitable pet carrier to take your four-legged friend on vacation. If you have a cat or a small dog, be sure to buy one tailored for him, to guarantee the animal a safe and peaceful journey!
What are the features of a good pet carrier?
A trip by car, plane or train, the journey from home to the vet, to dinner with friends … there are many occasions in which a pet carrier can be useful. Finding the one suitable for your faithful friend can become difficult given the wide offer, however there are some basic parameters that you can take into consideration while preparing to make the purchase.
A good pet carrier must be:
- easily transportable;
- roomy for the size of the dog / cat;
- with easy openings and secure closures;
- well ventilated;
- with good visibility from the inside to the outside;
- easy to assemble and disassemble for cleaning.
Ideal size of pet carrier for small pets
In order for the journey to be as pleasant for him as for you, it is important to give the cat or dog the right space in which he can find the comfort of home and his kennel.
The most important aspect for choosing the right pet carrier is its size. Remember that the furry may have to spend a lot of time inside it, so the container must not be too cramped. The size of the pet carrier must therefore be directly proportional to that of its content, that is, it must be large enough to allow the animal to move and turn easily, to sit and lie comfortably, but without overdoing since the “too much space” can bring the dog to become excessively agitated, thus risking injury.
