Take your small dog (45 pounds or less) on a bike ride or on a long walk with the Croozer Mini. The Croozer Mini is a pet trailer and a stroller. When you order the Croozer, you will receive all the necessary parts to make the cabin either a bike trailer or a stroller. This is unusal, as many pet trailers require you to purchase the stroller kit separately. The cabin folds flat for storage and also will serve as a crate for your dog in the car, minus the wheels. The cabin floor space measues: 24″L x 21″W x 22″H.
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!

Dogs entertain us, they give us love and joy, and sometimes they do odd things. At least we humans think some things they do are odd. Like, why does my dog kick the grass after peeing? Why does my dog sit on my feet and lean on my legs? and Why does my dog shred the toilet paper?
Dogs have glands in their feet that secrete hormones. Experts believe that dogs are spreading their scent in order to mark their territory when they kick the grass after going to the bathroom.
Dogs aren’t able to tell us they love us, so they tend to show us. Sitting on our feet and leaning on our legs are one way that dogs like to show us affection. They don’t always realize that their weight is sometimes enough to tip us over!
Shredding paper is definitely not an ideal behavior. In the wild, though, animals tear at their prey and this behavior is innate. Hopefully, you can find a more productive item for your dog to chew and tear up, like a bully stick.
Our faithful companions have long provided us with love and friendship and now they also have demonstrated an increase in the hormone oxytocin in our brain. Researchers in Japan studied eye contact between dogs and their owners and both dog and owner had elevated oxytocin levels after a soulful gaze into each others eyes. Oxytocin is the hormone associated with nurturing and bonding, similar to the relationship between parent and child. The researchers reported that through domestication, dogs came to find humans as their most important social partners.
In contrast to domesticated pets, animals in the wild tend to view eye contact as a threat. The researchers attempted to measure eye contact between wolves and humans and there was no evidence of eye contact or of elevated oxytocin levels. In addition to reducing our blood pressure and lowering our pulse rate, this is another example of how our relationship with our pet improves our overall mental and physical health.

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.
