Natuvalle 6-in-1 STURDY Airline Approved Pet Carrier Backpack

The name should indicate that this pet carrier from Natuvalle has a number of features to draw you in, not least the fact that it is airline-approved - although it is worth noting this only applies to XS, S and M sizes that fit underneath plane seats. Even so it has seatbelt loops, an interior lead for security and sturdy shoulder straps allowing you to carry your pet on your back, over one shoulder or to the side. It is also finished in tough Oxford fabric and even has zip locks for peace of mind.

A different take on the traditional template of a dog carrier, this offering from Petsfit has expandable side panels to give the option of extra room for your pet when conditions allow. It incorporates plenty of meshed areas to give your pet lots of light while the generous side pockets will carry all the assorted bits and bobs you need. Your small furry one can enter and exit through the top or the side entrance, and it’s available in two sizes too.
