Dasher's new bag

Okay so I admit, I have shoved Dasher into a Belle bag a few times but in this weather, I won't leave him in the car and sometimes I do need to run in for a few minutes to somewhere he isn't really welcomed. So this weekend, I went to a show and was on the lookout for a bag for Dash but if DH found out, I would be in big trouble. Well there was a vendor there with about every kind of bag you can think of half off (still a lot of them were a lot more than I wanted to spend!) But the nice thing is she got them all down for me and I was able to see the features of each.

I think some of the problems of finding a good Hav bag is our dogs are probably too heavy to be in a bag. Another one I found was that with our havs being longer than taller, the bags are made for square dogs- maltese, yorkie, chi's etc. So you have to get a really huge bag. Well I found one with everything I was looking for and more. The Celletei. I wanted a bag that comfy fit, was easy to carry, had a spot when I wanted Dash to be able to have his head out he could. This bag also has a seat belt spot, a water bottle holder, a removable bottom where you can insert cooling or heating pads, tons of compartments, and a lot of mesh areas. And the best of all the mesh is printed where it hides the dog. This is the el cheap version and it was half off so I only paid $30 for it. The vendor said it is designed by a Japanese woman who was flying back and forth with her dog so she really had to think of everything. We have only used it for a day but I will try and update if I am still as happy with it.

This is the very bag I told the forum about a long, long time ago after Sarah got one for Roxy! They are wonderful. On their web site they have so many styles and colors too.

Isn't Dash cute with his head sticking out!

Did Dash try to scratch his way out when you had it all closed up?

How long is the bag? Dash looks so big compared to the bag, but I forget how Havs like to curl up and sleep.

So glad you found one! $30.00 was a bargain!

$30?! You lucky ducky. I'd love to have a bag that fits Tori nicely for the very reasons you stated. Unfortunately, I haven't found any that I like the looks of and fit both her and my pocketbook

Kathy- you always have great advice but it isn't me that doesnt listen it is the voice of Jim "we don't need more dog stuff..." But I really did need this and the crate cooling pad I bought this summer has been probably my most used new item-Jim will admit that one. Still on my list in the carrier for the back seat of the car you told me about. That would be so easy when transporting all 3 of them. But this one will be great for Dasher's obedience and agility class and errands. While my house is closer to the city, I am in the middle of no where and running into target, etc. after class is ideal.

Leslie- that was my problem too. I have so many bags for Belle and some work for some things but not well for others. But the one that was the most expensive, I don't use that much- go figure! I just liked all the features on this one but most of all it had the features and was still very light weight. A lot of the other ones were so heavy and bulky and my favorite bags for Belle are the schmushy ones.

Linda- He is fine in the car with it but I only had him zipped in it for about 20 mins thus far. I think the picture from my phone gives the perfection of his head being close that the bag is tiny but I would estimate it to be 15-17 inches long? Dash can lay down in it. But you are right about curling up. I have freaked out a few times thinking Dash wasn't in his crate at agility but he was so curled up in the back, I didn't see him.

Here is the website that has a variety of them. I would like a more fun one but I gotta make sure this one works well and convince DH I will use it

Thanks for posting the site, Amanda, I'm going to go there now and look. I like reading and checking out good deals, and someday I'll find the right one that I can get.
