This carrier comes in one size (18″L x 11″W x 10″H) and only in the color black. It can hold 14 pounds. The carrier has mesh windows on all four sides, an interior safety leash, a reversible, comfortable pillow, and a nylon adjustable leash with an EVA comfort handle.

Incorporated into the carrier is the Forma Frame, which is a platform attached to the bottom of the carrier. The platform has four “follow me” wheels. The back wheels remain inline while the front wheels can swivel.

Don’t Strain Your Back!

Experts in back safety tell us we need to lift objects with our legs, not our backs, and not to twist when we are carrying an object. To protect the back and spine, it is important to distribute the weight that you carry as evenly as possible. You can injure your back by just lifting an object the wrong way once, and you can injure your back over time by lifting many things the wrong way, maintaining poor posture, being overweight and experiencing enduring stress.

Hauling your pet in a carrier, even if he or she only weighs 10 pounds, on one shoulder creates an imbalance of strain on your back. One way to even out the weight is to use a pet backpack.  It’s important to carry the backpack high on your back, not to let it hang low.  Another solution is to use a pet carrier on wheels . Wheeled carriers foster a smooth, less physically demanding travel experience for both you and your pet.

Many wheeled pet carriers have multiple functions. For example, the Pet Gear I-GO2 Plus Traveler is a pet carrier, rolling bag, backpack, car seat and a tote. It comes in six different colors and will carry pets up to 25 pounds.

The Snoozer Roll Around Carrier is also very popular with pets. It is a wheeled carrier, backpack, car seat and a traveling bed. The Roll Around comes in three different colors and three different sizes. The large size will carry a pet up to 30 pounds.snoozer rollaround

The Sherpa Pet Ultimate Bag on Wheels is a very well-made quilted texture carrier that can be carried or pulled. It has a large accessory pocket and comes in three sizes. It has a deep black color and the L will hold pets up to 22 pounds.

Min Pins Like to Come Along for the Ride

Contrary to popular belief, Min Pins are not miniature Doberman Pinschers. They are believed to be a cross between a Dachshund and an Italian Greyhound, and are a descendant of the German Pinscher. Min Pins are referred to as “King of the Toys,” and they will gladly take the position of king, or queen, of your household.  They are very confident, strong-willed dogs who like to think they are big dogs. At 8-11 pounds and 10-12.5 inches in height, the Min Pin’s gait has been compared to a prance. Their average life span is 14-17 years and they are very loyal to their humans. They will happily occupy the space on your lap and cuddle up close.

One thing to be cautious of is that these dogs like to run. One reason Min Pins end up in shelters is because they have run far from home. They are also stubborn to train, do not like cats and will try to dominate other dogs. Small children who do not know how to play with dogs generally aren’t a good fit with the Min Pin. These dogs have such small legs that can break easily if a child were to mishandle the dog or fall onto it.

Min Pins do not like to be left alone for long periods of time. They can become destructive and may bark excessively. Min Pins like to be on the go. They do well when taken out and allowed to socialize. You can take your Min Pin shopping, to the park or just around town to interact with and be handled by others.
