Whether you're taking a short stroll in the park or traveling abroad, it's important to know what type of carrier suits your pet best. And you can certainly get a quality shoulder tote or rolling tote without emptying your bank account – just check out the Marshall Front Pack or the Marshall Wheelie Tote on our close-out website, Both are sturdy and great for small pets, and both are very affordable!

So, what to look for in a tote or wheeled carrier? Start by knowing the weight of your pet. Often pet owners are wowed by the design, and they forget to take into account that their pet may outweigh the capacity of the carrier. When that happens, stress on the seams occurs and can be a safety issue, not to mention the stress your pet might experience from being in close quarters.

Carriers will roll differently with a pet on board. If possible, try to take a test drive with your pet. This will help you make the right travel accessory purchase for your pet.

Ventilation is also important. Make sure there are vents on at least two opposing sides of the carrier, this will ensure good airflow and easier breathing for your furry companion.

Safety clips are another nice feature since they secure your pet if you need to open the carrier without creating an escape route. Look for a carrier with clips sewn right in.
