The New and Improved DoggyRide Cocoon will be back in stock very soon. This multi-functional carrier has proven to be a favorite among pet owners.
If you choose to buy the Cocoon as a pet bike basket, the basket comes with a KLICKfix adapter for standard size handle bars (.87-1.02 inches). If you have a non-standard size handle bars, KLICKfix.com has other adapters and accessories available on their site. The pet bike basket also has a long carry strap that means you can use the Cocoon as a shoulder bag and a mesh dome.
If you choose to buy the Cocoon as a Car Seat, the basket has a leash set that comes with it to tether your dog inside. The car seat also comes with a shoulder strap and a mesh dome. If you want the Cocoon to be more of a booster seat for your pet, an additional leash set must be purchased. Then you can secure the basket around the headrest of your car.
The DoggyRide Cocoon will carry up to 15 pounds of dog or perhaps you might use it to carry groceries or other non-pet items.
Taking your dog along with you on your bike ride ensures a good time for both dog and owner. Choosing the right pet bike basket is key. You need to make sure you pick one that will fit on your bicycle and that is the right size for your pet. I picked three different pet bike baskets to examine. One or more may be appealing and suit your needs just perfectly.
The DoggyRide Cocoon Pet Basket was recently redesigned and is now stronger and more sturdy than before. It is made of 70 denier polyester, which makes it easy to clean with a wet cloth. You can choose to close the mesh dome, or keep it open, and there is a plastic cover included for rainy days. The cocoon pet basket easily attaches to the bike handlebar using the KLICKfix adapter (included). The KLICKfix fits onto handlebars that are between 22 and 26mm (.87-1.02 inches) in diameter.
