Best Chihuahua pet carrier I’ve ever seen!


Farfl curled up in her new carry case

I'm lucky enough to be going to London, Ontario next year for a couple of months to perform in a theatre play and Farfl's coming too!

I'll be travelling between London and Toronto mostly using the train so I've been searching high and low for a good bag to carry Farlf in. Her hard-sided carrying crate is a bit unwieldy to shlep around with a suitcase!

All the carriers I've looked at have been too big, too bulky, not enough pockets, ugly etc. etc. etc. I've really been pulling my hair out! Then a couple of days ago I happened to pop into one of my local pet stores to pick up some treats ahead of Farfl's advanced training class which starts tomorrow. And there, sitting on a shelf, was the answer to my dreams!


The Bergan Comfort Carrier is perfect!

The Bergan Comfort Carrier is very reasonably priced - just $45 CDN in my local store - has an adjustable shoulder strap, velcro tabs for securing the carrier with a seat belt in the car, a fleecy liner and a great feature called Pet Connect. Here's a video that explains how it works:

This thing is terrific! When I brought it home I left it open on the couch in my home office and Farfl leapt into it, curled up and went straight to sleep! I'm going to use it as both her carrier and her bed in my digs in London. What a find! I highly recommend it to any readers with small dogs - the small size is designed for pets up to 10lbs. It's also designed for in-flight use, but you'll need to check with your airline to find out if it meets their regulations.

    Thank you so much! I came across this carrier on a pet store website however, I didn’t look into it because I thought it was too big. It wasn’t until I saw the video you posted that I knew this is the perfect carrier for my babies. My chihuahua, Tinkerbell is a brand new mommy! And while her pups are only days old I’m already planning on all the wonderful items they will need and I will want. I can’t wait till they are big enough to go out.

    I searched best pet carrier for chihuahua and clicked on yours first. Then I had to smile because the one you mentioned is the exact one I had already bought for mine. Thanks for the blog, now I can save time and not look any further.

    Hey Lisa – glad it worked out for you! I’ve now had that carrier for 4 years and it’s still going strong!
