Dog Travel with Ease:
The Snoozer Takes Over!

by Carrie Boyko, CEB

Football Anyone?

We'll be bringing footballs to Blogpaws for next year's Super Dog Sunday event. Last year when some would-be participants were not able to pull off a photo, we learned that they just couldn't come up with a football-themed item to include in their pic. We plan to fix that problem this year by handing out footballs to as many bloggers as we can meet.


Missy from Dogs for the PAWS helped us out with the footballs. Oliver packed his Snoozer rolling pet carrier (like a carrier on wheels) up with as many as possible and we're looking forward to meeting everyone at Blogpaws. It's a bit crowded in there, but he seems happy, right?


Somehow, though, I'm thinking we'll have to coerce him into shipping the footballs separately. After all, where's he going to snooze in this Snoozer when it gets to be naptime? I don't really think he thought this through, so we'll work on it. 


We did look at other options when we visited Global Pet Expo. We already knew we were headed for D.C. for Blogpaws, so a carrier on wheels was definitely a must. After all, a chunky 10 lb. dog is a handful in a carrier (written with tongue in cheek), so I decided I liked the option of rolling or backpacking Oliver in a small carrier.

No Entry! Guard Dog at Work


We shopped and shopped the booths, knowing we had to find just the right one. The Snoozer won this contest! This super cool rolling pet carrier, converts to a backpack as well, so I can change my mind and switch it up a bit when needed. Pretty cool, huh?

Hey! This is Just My Size
When We got the Snoozer home, Oliver decided he needed to guard it the first day. Then, after a bit of getting acquainted, he ventured inside. His own bed was right next to the Snoozer, but he seemed to think it was time to test out this new gadget that must be for him. Success!

Comfy Cozy
Naptime eventually did happen. It looks like he'll be comfortable there. 


Now let me tell you about some of the other features of this nifty traveler for pups. The top, front and one side are all made of durable mesh, allowing for plentiful visibility. I know Oliver will enjoy being able to see where we're headed as we roll around from place to place.


Almost as important as visibility are the pockets on each side. There's room for his leash, some treats and a package of doodie bags--all the really important stuff. We'll be traveling with a small bag of Organix treats and some Flush Puppies to be sure we can take care of all of Oliver's major needs. I have a collapsible water bowl that will also fit into one pocket, so I can share my water with him no matter where we are.

Off We Go
Shall we try out the backpack version of the Snoozer? All we have to do is retract the handle. The straps for the backpack are tucked out of the way inside pockets at the back of the Snoozer, easily accessible.  So, off we go on our test walk.


I'm sure you're all just drooling over this great carrier. I love that I have the option of rolling or backpacking him. It fits my travel style well. And Oliver seems to think the top opening is pretty handy for seeing the view, no matter where we are. The design was clever, making the top and front each open separately. And there's no worries about losing your little furry friend. Each Snoozer comes with a short attachment leash and hook on the inside, so you can secure him while you roll or backpack your buddy through airports, hotels and shopping expeditions. What a great way to travel!

I take my dogs when I travel to Portland. I try to keep them comfortable and this would be great for my smallest bichon. They are brothers but one weighs more and is on the heavier side. I still bet the bigger one Tuffy would get into this and love it for he is the baby. Rita Spratlen rj_angel_house@yahoo.com

This would be so great for our new little Chihuahua! She loves to be carried around all the time and she loves to go places. Pet Snoozer Products are AWESOME! They think of everything!



Anonymous said...

This would be so great because I have to walk my kids to school now because they are charging for the bus. I could just put our dog in the backpack and off we go!!!! My daughters would be able to show off the dog at school as well. (Always a plus!) I love things like the Pet Snoozer Pet Carrier. It is a must for small dogs...especially our "diva dog" who likes to be on the go but can only go so far with her little legs! She would love the carrier and so would we!



Anonymous said...

Love this comfy, cozy and SAFE place for our dog to be when we are on the go. I will not have to worry about her if she is nice and safe on my back. When we take hikes up in the mountains or go to a soccer game we could take her along in this great pet carrier by SnoozerPets. I love the All Things Dog Blog and the information it provides on new products like this one. All Things Dog Blog is ter-RUFF-ic! Dawn
