Taking your dog on an airplane trip is one of the most challenging ways to travel with a pet. Airlines have tough restrictions and lugging around all your baggage along with carrying a dog carrier can become a pain.
So when you’re shopping for a dog carrier for taking on the plane, you want to look for something that is as convenient and easy to handle as possible while also being compliant with the regulations of the airline you are flying with. OxFord’s dog carrier is perfectly suited to the needs of traveling by plane with a dog.
This strongly built and lightweight product makes a great medium dog carrier backpack that is especially suited for taking to the airport. With the choice between we padded shoulder straps, an easy grip handle, or the retractable handle that allows you to roll it, you have no shortage of options for how to transport this carrier.
The key specs include:
This is perfectly designed for airplane travel. The three different carrying options make it easy to carry it even when you have other luggage to worry about. And it is compatible with many airline regulations. Although we always recommend calling ahead just to make sure that it is compatible with the airline you are flying with.
The roomy pockets on the side give you plenty of storage space for treats, food, water, and potty pads or bags. The mesh panel on the front and sides give your dog plenty of airflow and visibility. Overall, it’s perfect for keeping your dog safe and comfortable in the airport and on the plane.
There is not a lot to complain about here. It is very well priced and well made. The main drawback is that it only comes in one size which means you have to hope the dimensions are the right size for your dog and if they aren’t, you’re out of luck.
Another issue is that it may not fit under every single airplane seat. You will want to call ahead before any flight to make sure that it will be able to fit.
One of the best ways to really get a sense of how a product will perform or what kind of benefits it might provide for you is to see how satisfied (or unsatisfied) other people were with it.
Not only can this carrier be used for air travel, it can also be used for everyday trips. If you want to go on longer walks with a small dog or you want to take them around with you on your errands for the day, they may not be able to keep up with you.
So having this carrier with you means you can let them take a rest when they need it without you having to slow down.
If you lay this down on its side (which you need to do to put it underneath an airplane seat), your dog will be able to lay down. So if that struck you as an issue, you shouldn’t worry too much.
Overall, this carrier is definitely designed with your dog’s comfort and mind. And since it comes with both shoulder straps and a retractable handle, it was made with your comfort in mind as well!
So while these experiences you have read can be helpful, you might also want to look for more testimonials and reviews from customers who have very similar needs and priorities as you do. Doing this will give you the most accurate idea of how well a product will match your specific needs.
As helpful as this review can be in helping you understand the real value a product can add, you do have to keep in mind that different people do have different needs and priorities.
There is only one size option here so as long as the dimensions look appropriate for your dog, you can easily and safely order this online. With that said, do make sure to measure your dog’s height and length. Even if their weight is within the limit, they may be too tall or long to sit comfortably inside of it.
Overall this is a very handy dog carrier to have. It’s comfortable for you to carry (either on your back or pulling it by the handle) and it’s comfortable for your dog to sit in. Just make sure your dog is the right size to fit inside before you buy it!
