There’s a new dog carrier on the market, Pup To Go, which allows you to carry your dog with you. Seeing as our dogs all weigh over 60 lbs. I don’t foresee myself carrying them around anytime soon, but if you have a small pup it’s worth checking out.
Judging from the reactions of people walking on the sidewalks of Manhattan, the new Pup To Go carrier for small dogs is destined to be a huge hit. It is unique because it is a harness-style carrier allowing you to carry your small dog right in front of you, five feet off the ground.
People walking by are clearly intrigued and many stop to be introduced to Luke, an 8-year-old Shih Tzu and the inspiration for Pup To Go. His four little legs sticking out front and his tail hanging north to south is an attention getting visual, even for New Yorkers whove seen it all.
Luke likes to be with me as I run all over the city. He loves shopping, going to Union Square and SoHo and joining me for a quick Pinkberry run, says Meena Mansharamani, proud Mom of Luke and Co-Founder of Pup To Go. He does not like being confined in a bag-style carrier. Instead, Pup To Go allows him to be part of the action. And people cant resist him now that hes at eye level. Im guessing his head rub action has increased at least a thousand-fold.
The creator of the Pup To Go said the carrier isn’t to prevent your dog from getting exercise, Luke still gets scheduled walks, but to allow your pup to go places they otherwise couldn’t. The company is generously offering up a few carriers for two lucky Dogsters to win. If you would like to win one-your dog must be no more than 25 lbs.- leave your answer to “If you and your small dog could go anywhere, where would you go with your Pup To Go?” in the comment section.
The contest will run for two weeks, each week one lucky Dogster will be chosen to win a Pup To Go. You have from today through Tuesday, November 24th to enter. The first winner will be chosen on Tuesday, November 17th and the second on Tuesday, November 24th.
