It’s rare day when the Pupstyle staff finds a dog carrier worthy of travel with our own precious pooch, but this cutie by Canini Pet is irresistible. It is a nice update on the classic bowling bag design with a handy outside pocket for mommy’s money and a small treat or two. The carrier also appears to be less of a back wrenching torture device that most dog carriers on the market. Three sides are vented for air and the inside is lined with stain resistant cotton (major bonus) with a removable faux fur padded pillow. They also went the extra step and lined the pull out chin rest with fax fur and included a collar latch to prevent suicide leaps while you’re on the go. The leather is a sturdy pebble grain and comes in a Punch Pink/Preppy Green and an Azure Blue/Chocolate Brown. Not a bad deal for $350 given all the finishing details included with this bag. And it is available to buy direct from the designer.
Manly Muttsack. If you’re a dude who has ever tried to find a straight-forward carrier for your dog, no doubt you were left puking over the abundance of pink fluffy sissy sacks at the pet store. Well Mister Macho, now you can dismiss any fear of being “Puppy-Purse Punked” at the dog run . CreatureCouture.com has the best in butch bags for both men and women to carry their dog in style. They have two fabulous “man bags” to check out, but our favorite is the “Hemmingway”. It’s a leather bag with a messenger style flap and roll up doors on both ends. Plus, it has pockets for a cell phone, business cards and a pen (essential for high level dog run schmoozing and play date networking). It comes in Noir and Chestnut and carries up to 12 lbs. of hound hunkiness. It’s hot diggity!!!
Don’t call that Spade a Spayed! In response to outrage fostered by the postings on this site, Kate Spade has finally come around and is now offering a fine bag for toting toto. Known for her simple style and grace, Kate teams up with cartoonist Maira Kalman to create this simple yet sassy canvas dog carrier (no longer available – bitch!).
The Metro dog carrier by Petote is the perfect gift for the fashionista in your life. This bag is sophisticated, sexy and down-right beautiful. Made with tasteful fabrics, trimmed with designer Italian leather and gold plated hardware, it’s the perfect repose for your pup on the go while Mommy’s on a bit of a spree in the shoe department at Barney’s. It’s even designed to accomodate a two doggie play date!
