Extremely well made, top quality. My dog is very comfortable in it (it’s quilted inside) and feels safe. It’s also chic and I get a lot of compliments on it. Only wish there were a small leash pocket on it but otherwise it’s perfect.
Love my wagwear messenger bag. Holds my 11 lb Pom/schipperke perfectly without hurting my back!
So grateful I found this!
Extra good carrier bag
I actually found my wagwear bag in my building hallways ‘donations’ box. I figured it might come in handy for my 10lb Maltese with bad knees. We have had so many carriers and purses and tote bag situations over the years, so she’s used to being in bags. I have to say I’m about to buy my second bag because this bag is really great. The quality is stellar, Ella is so comfortable half the time she sleeps, and its actually comfortable to wear-not back breaking or shoulder breaking like some other bags. It’s also not cheap ugly shiny polyester like most shoulder bags. Might seem a little pricey but I’ve washed and dried mine a bunch of times and it’s basically still how I found it-in perfect condition. I’m getting another one in a different color-I hope they make these bags forever.
Excellent carrying bag for a small dog
I have used this style bag from Wagwear for 12 years to carry my 12 pound dachshund service dog in New York City.
I also used the same bag to train my second service dog and also carry him consistently.
I recommend training a small dog as a puppy to become completely comfortable inside the bag during transport. I like the closeness of holding the dog inside my coat during cold weather.
I am able to enter restaurants and hospitals with my registered service dog with less concern from staff as my dog is completely contained and controlled. My 2 dachshund service dogs are trained to be like kangaroos inside this bag and this makes all travel including air flight quite easy.
For a puppy weighing 3-5 pounds it is an excellent method for attachment puppy care. My second dog is now 2 years old, also trained for service purposes, and he was never separated from my person when he was under 6 months of age, for his safety and house training. I could shift the bag behind me while I did kitchen tasks for example.
This bag might be a challenge for an older dog who is not accustomed to constant holding while in transport. Over the years, I have replaced the bag about 5 times as basic wear and tear occurs when used daily. I also wash the bag and air dry.
People comment all the time how my dog is so content and we are one unit. This bag is something that has become an invaluable tool for me in both training and daily life with a registered service dog.
