I’m a big advocate for bag training dachshunds. For me the breed (of miniature dachshunds) is perfectly compact and appropriate for travel via car, plane and boat. Not to mention those days when it’s just easier to put a dachshund in a bag and go. Some days I want to enjoy the company of my pampered pooch without the added challenge of trying to walk him on a leash in a crowd. Rufus has been all over the country, and I look forward to showing it to Emily and Lily as the opportunity is presented.
For me, all bags are not equal. I’m particular about my bag and will spend a little more to ensure I have something stylist and fun. For me a good dog bag is an investment. If you take care of them they will last, especially when we buy a quality bag. In today’s marketplace that’s easier said than done, and I know because I had to look high and low before I found one. Well, it’s my pleasure to introduce y’all to our new BK Atelier’s “Bridget” carrier. After unsuccessfully trying to locate one in our fine state, I ended up having this one shipped directly from NYC. In addition to the high fashion the bag is 100% vegan. The company’s motto is, “Made for animals not from animals.”
One quick note, although I have a few photos featuring two of my trio in the bag at the same time, I would not recommend putting more than one dachshund in a bag at a time (which is also why I own multiple bags to go along with my multiple dachshunds). Most of the bags I own are only capable carrying 13 to 20 pounds at any one time so… for the purpose of pictures they look cute in there together, but in reality it’s not practical (or at least I don’t recommend putting more weight than the manufacture specifies). Okay. I’m also a fan of word of mouth referrals and here’s our latest endorsement. If you’re in the market for a new bag consider BK Atelier carriers; we’re fans. Our friend Milo has the Mia bag and his human continues to rave about it a year later.
