CarryMyDog.com says that some dog owners swear by their backpack pet carrier. It's an easy way to take your dog with you and, what could be more pleasant for the dog. I remember when we first saw our first Cavalier her head and front legs popped out of the pet backpack. That was maybe 15 years ago. Since then we've had two wonderful Cavs. The point is that you might say a pet backpack carrier changed our lives that day. Most of our models convert into carriers and some into carriers and car seats. I'm sure you will find one that's just right for you and your dog.
