I'm so happy with this car seat. Just got it, and it's already approved by our puppy. As long as she's comfortable, I'm happy. The material seems solid, and I hope it stands the test of time. It looks well-made and, hopefully, easy to clean.
my dogs are both elderly and love being able to snuggle up, and this has given them the option to do this in the car! they love it x
We sourced these from Australia & they are amazing! 🐾🐾
This car seat is excellent in terms of quality and design! It fits perfectly in our SUV, and our dogs absolutely love it. Super soft and comfortable, with plush pillows that add a luxurious touch. The size is great, and assembly easily. Highly recommend.
The shipping was fast, the price is high BUT is worth every dollar. I bought this bed for my Frenchie as I wanted her to travel in luxury when we go to the beach or just down to the shops. It is so spacious for her and is such a lovely colour. Highly recommend this product!
I have a 55lb nervous Doberman that often gets car sick. This large dog car seat not only looks great but feels great too. It fits perfectly in my X5 SUV and has a nice aesthetic. Highly recommend for anxious pups!
Our lab puppy used to be anxious in the car, constantly moving around. This car seat changed everything. Super comfy with soft sides for her head, she stays put once inside. The material is cool and soft, and the cover comes off easily for washing. A fantastic purchase providing great value for money.
I bought this for my daughter. Her little girl kitty has occasional freak-out moments, and this sling is perfect for carrying her around. It's very convenient when they go outside or travel in the car.
Easy to use, nice size
I got this for a road trip with my cat. It's handy to take into indoor places like shopping malls, restaurants, and public transportation, so you don't leave them alone in the car. My cat enjoys looking around from this carrier.
This product is both sturdy and comfortable to wear, and my cat loves it! We let him get accustomed to it before a long journey. During the trip, I could expand the back section easily. I appreciate the safety latches on each zipper to ensure our furry friend doesn't escape if left unattended for a moment. It's incredibly convenient for our adventures together.
Our dog often gets anxious in the car, but this seat has made a significant difference. It fits snugly, making our pet feel more secure during rides. We're very pleased with this purchase.
