In an increasingly pet friendly world, dog carrier bags allow us to take our four-legged family everywhere. Whether you are about to board an international flight, ride on public transportation, go hiking, or spend the afternoon running errands with your four-legged friend, getting your dog used to a pet carrier is essential.
Is your dog new to pet carriers? Nervous, excited, or jumpy in any type of dog bag or pet purse? It is very common for dogs to be scared of new carriers or even try to jump out, especially if they're not used to being carried. How do you teach your dog to love riding in a bag?
In this DJANGO Dog Blog article, we provide several steps to help your dog get used to a new pet carrier.
Mike and I (Steph) have flown extensively with with our long-haired dachshund Django. Every trip has been relatively easy since Django weighs 14 lbs and comfortably fits in an airline-approved pet carrier. He is also calm, quiet, and loves his airplane-friendly dog bag. We are fortunate that Django is so well behaved once we're up in the air.
Of course, flying with a dog in the airplane cabin is not always so easy. Dogs who have never flown before may be understandably nervous in the crowded airport and once on board. If you have never flown with your four-legged friend before, you might also be unsure what pre-travel steps should be taken.
If you want to take your dog on an in-cabin flight, there are several things you can do to make your trip as safe and seamless as possible. Here is how to best prepare your dog to fly in the airplane cabin.
One of the first dog toys we (Mike and Steph) ever bought Django was a KONG Classic rubber dog toy. Easily one of the most popular dog toys on the market, our durable toy has lasted through the years. Just yesterday, Django spent almost 20 minutes carefully licking every ounce of peanut butter out of his KONG toy.
Over the past give years, KONG has been one of our go-to dog toy companies. The brand is known for its high quality products and premium dog treats. We were therefore very excited to learn that KONG introduced its own monthly subscription box back in late 2019.
The following is a comprehensive overview and review of KONG Box based on our own personal experience getting the monthly subscription box for our long-haired dachshund, Django.
