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.
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 best-selling Snoozer Roll Around Pet Carrier is popular for good reasons. It has four ways it can be used to safely transport your beloved pet. First, with the telescoping handle, pull your pet through the airport without straining your spine. The small and medium Roll Around models meet most airline standards for carry-on baggage and fit beneath the seat in front of you. However, be sure to check with your airline before traveling with your pet.
Second, use the Roll Around as a backpack. Padded backpack straps are located in the rear storage pocket. You just need to attach them to the carrier and off you go.
The third way to use this pet carrier is as a car seat. Thread the seat belt through the straps on the rear of the Roll Around and your pet will be secure in the back seat of the car. The Roll Around has been crash tested, with all zippers closed, at 30 mph (with 30 lbs inside).
Finally, use the Snoozer Roll Around as a pet bed. You just need to unzip the top and bottom mesh panels and secure them to the center support bar. Then lay the carrier on its back.The Roll Around comes in three different sizes and is able to carry pets up to 30 pounds. You can choose from three colors: Red, Khaki or Black.

Traveling with pets by car is so popular that cars like the Honda Element have a pet package available and are commended for their pet-friendly design! Keeping your car clean and your pet happy when traveling will make your journey hassle-free.
1. A spill-proof bowl. This is key. Pets need to stay hydrated during travel and this item will ensure that the water and food go into the animal, rather than onto the floor. Two examples of spill-proof bowls are:
2. A good chew toy is a must! The bully stick is a fantastic item to keep dogs busy for hours. They are available in multiple lengths and even come odor-free!
3. A multi-functional leash will allow your dog to have the run of the back seat, yet you won’t have to worry about him causing trouble. Kurgo makes a leash that is also a zip-line for the inside of the car. Great idea.
4. A booster seat helps the small dog see out the window. Companies like Solvit and Snoozer make comfortable seats that can be used with or without the car seat belt.
5. A pet stroller will make it easier to navigate your final destination with your pet. A lightweight, easy to fold, fit in your trunk kind of stroller.
