5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent design, works perfectly., 21 Sept. 2011
This review is from: TRIXIE 28871 Deluxe Rucksack 41x 30 x 21 cm Brown / Beige (Misc.)
I bought this for Sally, my patterdale terrier (7kg) so she can come with me on a horse riding day for my sisters birthday. Just the thing I needed!

It arrived flat packed in a handy zip up bag, simply unfold it and zip the sides in place to use, goes back just as easily. The sides and base are reinforced so the bag holds it's shape excellently and feels robust. There is a side flap as well as the flap on top so you have a choice of entrances/exits. As well as the shoulder straps there are carrier handles on the top so this can be used as a shoulder bag too. The clip for her collar to make sure she can't jump out is adjustable which I thought was a nice touch. There is also a mobile phone pocket on one of the straps and a couple of zip pockets on the front - very handy.

You do need to have the shoulder straps short to ensure the base is level (otherwise it digs into your back), but the straps are wide and padded and the strap connecting the shoulder straps does an excellent job at keeping everything where it should be. I have narrow shoulders so I was a bit concerned after reading some of the comments about wide shoulder straps, but when all the straps are adjusted properly the bag feels really sturdy and comfy.

Sally is light but has long legs (she is 14" at the shoulder)so she only just fits in this. It's fine as she loves being carried around and rests her head on my shoulder when she is in the bag! If she was fidgety I would not feel she was safe in it as she can easily step out, so please take into account your dog's temperament when buying this if they are a similar size. My smaller terrier is 9" at the shoulder and fits in it perfectly, I could zip the top up if needed so she would be safe.

I bought this weeks in advance to get Sally used to being in it before the long trek and she loves it. I have trained her to get in it herself through the side door as trying to manoeuvre her in was not going to work! I have also put a blanket in the bottom to make it cosy (though the base is a bit padded, not completely hard).

Overall this is an excellent design, so many thoughtful features, obviously designed by people who would use it themselves. Feels like it will last a while too. Well worth 5 stars :)
