How to always take your doggie with you for work, play and travel…
Since more places we go are dog friendly, it is much easier to take your furry best friend along when you want, using dog carriers that fit the situation. When your pup will spend all day at work, goes on errands or leaves on a jet plane with you, the Petote pet carrier crew have thought of all the best carriers to use! Proudly made in the USA, here are a few of our Petote favorites

hardware for buckles, zipper and feet. The interior is lined with waterproof nylon and has a removable plush faux fur pad for your little fur pal’s coziness. A safety tether is included inside to attach to your tail wagger’s harness. Side vent windows give him or her plenty of air circulation plus a way to view their route with you.

How to teach a new pup to kennel ride
Our favorite “Lucky Dog” TV show star, Brandon McMillan had a segment on Saturday’s show that addressed training a dog to ride in a travel kennel that rides in-compartment. Here in my words, is a summary of what he said. Also see the link below.
Travel Kennel Training
- Open carrier and place treat inside or at back of carrier
- Once dog gets treat, say “good” and reward with another treat
- Then progress to “Stay” while dog is in the carrier, say “good” and reward with treat
- While dog is in carrier, play with zipper or closure sort of like playing peek-a-boo, with closing and opening zipper at short intervals. Say “good” and reward with a treat
- When dog is comfortable with closed carrier, walk around the room and around them so they can see you.
- When dog is happy staying in carrier, pick it up and set it down, then pick it up and walk around the room with it and set it down.
- Once the dog is comfortable being moved around in the carrier, take a short walk with them, either from room to room or outdoors.
- Open carrier and leave it until they are ready to exit on their own.
