Traveling with pets, whether by train, plane or automobile, is becoming more and more commonplace. More hotels and restaurants are catering to travelers who don’t want to leave their furry friends at home. Two excellent wheeled carriers for small pets include the Snoozer Cooper Bag and the Gen7Pets Roller Carrier.
Snoozer Cooper Bag
The Snoozer Cooper Bag is definitely a small dog or cat wheeled carrier. The interior dimensions are 14″W x 9″D x 12″H. Weight limit says up to 15 pounds. Some reviews for this bag say it is not roomy enough for dogs or cats that weigh closer to the 15 pound mark. Measure your animal before purchasing. The Cooper Bag has two fabric color options: Zebra and Black. The four wheels all swivel, it is very easy to move it on the floor. The telescoping handle reaches 41 inches high. There are several side and front pockets to store items. There is a magnet allowing the top flap to stay partially open if you choose. This bag fits under most airline seats.
Gen7Pets Roller Carrier
The Gen7Pets Roller Carrier has two different size options: One for pets up to 10 pounds and another for pets up to 20 pounds. Both carriers only weigh a little over 6 pounds. The Gen7 carrier is unique with its Smart-Level platform that keeps your pet from being tipped while riding. The Roller Carrier has lots of mesh windows to keep your pet ventilated. The small carrier has the interior dimensions: 15.5″H x 8.5″D x 13.5″W while the larger size is 15″H x 9″D x 16″W. There are three fabrics from which to choose: Red, Black Geometric and Zebra.
When deciding which wheeled pet carrier will work for you, pay attention to the actual size of your dog or cat as opposed to just the weight.

It is estimated that more than half of Americans, with pets, prefer to travel with them. It is wise, when traveling by air, to plan ahead. While airlines have the same general rules, like your pet needs to be in a carrier, some differ in the details, like certain aircrafts can’t accommodate pets and some airlines have breed restrictions.
Maximum dimensions for carriers is a key consideration when taking your pet as a carry-on because the carrier must fit under the seat in front of you. For example, American wants the carrier to measure no more than 19″L x 13″W x 9″H and United no more than 17.5″L x 12″W x 7.5″H. Southwest even has their own carrier for purchase which measures 17″L x 10″W x 10.5″H.
Other preparations include updating any vaccinations your pet may need and making sure your pet is healthy enough for travel. No pet under the age of 8 weeks is permitted to fly. Some pets become anxious in the carrier for long periods of time. Make sure you bring along a comfortable blanket and a favorite toy!
Traveling with your dog is a necessity for many people. And it’s much more fun to travel with your pet in a stylish pet carrier. Gen7Pets makes the Carry-Me pet carrier and the Deluxe Carry-Me carrier. Both come in three different colors and two sizes.
The large size will hold 20 pounds and measures 19.5″L x 9.5″ x 13″H on the inside. Your pet has two zippered doors, one in the front and one in the rear. It has an interior leash, for an added safety measure. The carrier will function as a car seat, a shoulder bag, or a tote. By placing the carry-me carrier on its side, it fits most airline on-board standards.
The K9 Lift booster seat is a safe and secure way to travel with your small pet (up to 20 lbs). Attach it to the seat head rest, either in the front or the back of the car, and your pet is ready to ride. This car booster seat is one of the sturdiest I have seen. It also has a leash for added safety. Your pet will have a fabulous view and be safe and cozy inside the booster!
Snoozer Pet Products makes the Stow and Go, which is the perfect car seat for traveling with your small pet. This 3 in 1 pet product is a car booster seat, a pet bed and a suitcase!
The Stow and Go is perfect for the pet that weighs 18 pounds or less. The car seat measures 18″W x 18″H x 15″Deep. By sitting on top of the suitcase, your pet is elevated 10 inches for a good view out of the car window. The Stow and Go is an all-in-one travel solution for trips with your furry loved one.
Over the shoulder pet carriers are very functional and often very stylish. However, sometimes traveling with your pet becomes easier with a pet carrier on wheels. Your pet might be happier riding smoothly rather than bouncing around on your shoulder. Pulling your pet also allows you to carry other bags over your shoulder. Some wheeled pet carriers fit underneath the seat in front of you on the plane.
Wheeled pet carriers are targeted for pets that weigh less than 22 pounds. Some have telescoping handles, while others have leash-type pulls. Some tip to pull and others ride flat on all four wheels.
Pet carriers on wheels allow for good viewing, and they have a safety tether inside to keep your pet from jumping out.
Wheeled small pet carriers are multi-functional. They serve as a car seat, backpack, and tote in many cases.
Gen7Pets released the Roller-Carrier, which is a wheeled carrier like no other. Gen7Pets is known for the Smart Features that each of their products contains, and the Roller-Carrier is no exception.
The key to this wheeled carrier being different is the Smart-Level platform which keeps the carrier from tipping over when you are pulling your pet from behind.
The Gen7Pets Roller-Carrier comes in three different colors and two different sizes. The small size will carry pets up to 10 pounds and the large up to 20 pounds.
This carrier has straps for use as a backpack or you can safely tuck in the straps for use as a roller carrier. This carrier is also a car seat and a portable kennel. The medium size of this carrier meets most airline regulations.
KittyWalk has just released the perfect travel pet stroller! It is both practical and stylish. It fits into the Royale line, to go along with the Royale Classic and the Royale SUV.
The KittyWalk Flying Pet Stroller will carry up to 30 pounds. It has a detachable carrier, with adjustable straps, so you can check the stroller and carry your pet onto the plane. This way you don’t have to transfer your pet to a different carrier for the flight. The stroller frame fits into the carrier bag for easy checking.
The Flying Stroller has a 32 inch handle height. The carrier measures 20″L x 12″w x 14″H and has three windows with shades and a special window on the top! The carrier buckles easily to the frame when you are on the move and then quickly releases when you are ready to board the plane. The carrier is 14 inches tall, but is able to collapse to 10 inches, allowing it to fit under most airline seats.
The Flying Stroller has a large ‘carry all things’ basket just under the parent tray. It also boasts a comfortable, washable interior faux sheepskin pad cover. Check out the New Flying Pet Stroller at PerfectPetStroller.com
