Seriously, this Yorkie carrier will make travelling a breeze. It’s got everything you could need–and even comes with a waterproof multi-purpose pet bowl that can be used for snacks or water. Just check out this review–it says it all:
This Gorilla Grip Pet Carrier is superior to any other pet carrier I have ever owned. My favorite features are that it is lightweight with padded shoulder straps and quality construction, so now I don’t have to deal with traveling by plane or car with a pet carrier that is too heavy or constantly breaking. It also looks smart, I love the gray and black color combination.
I also think it makes my dog feel safe because it has 4 large wide mesh windows which allows for visual contact with me, not to mention good air flow. The 4 wide zippered openings (top and 3 sides) make getting my pup in and out a breeze and it is easy for me to quickly give him a treat or pet him.
There are also safety clips on the zippers for the doors, so no matter how clever your dog is he can’t get out which helps me relax, especially in a crowded airport. A Sherpa insert is also included, which makes the bottom of the bag super cozy and supportive for my dog, with the best part being I can wash it as needed. The ultimate bonus is a free travel bowl is included, which is something I always need (and forget!) when I travel so I thought that was such a thoughtful idea for the company to include.
And this classic dog carrier is less than 30 bucks. Seriously. Not even joking.
2. This Expandable Pet Carrier That’s More Like a Luxury Tent
This ninja of a carrier zips up to look like typical small dog carriers, but then when it’s fully expanded gives your pup three times the room to roam, and is fully padded! This carrier is airline approved, has an easily washable lining, and a place to “seat belt” your dog into the carrier for added protection for pup. Plus, it’s price point won’t break the bank at only $29.99.
I bought this carrier for my Chihuahua. We are going to be moving and I needed a safe place for him to travel. We are also going to be using it while at a wedding in the middle of April. I wanted a place he could be comfortable for an extended period of time. The fold out sides seemed ideal…
(…)I was not sure my dog would like the carrier. No worries there. The issue now is getting him to leave the carrier! I actually had to hide it from him because he was crying to be let inside. I would say this was well worth the $29.99 price. There is a life time replacement warranty! Who does that?! That shows how dedicated to the product this company is! I would buy from them again most definitely!!

Check out this review from an Amazon customer:
My 5.5 pound Yorkie wants to be held all the time. He will scratch my feet to get me to pick him up, but there are some things you just can’t do one handed. So, I tried this and I love it and he really loves being in it and with me as I run around getting things done.
Plus, it’s less than $20.00. Yep. That’s a winner.
We’re seriously obsessed. It’s got everything you’d want from small dog carriers, plus it’s dang cute and comes in a ton of different colors. It’s also got a clip-in leash for your dog to keep pup safe and securely in the carrier while you’re walking about. And it’s less than 60 bucks. Check out this review:
I had been searching for a dog carrier for weeks until I came across this one. It was exactly what I was looking for; spacious, structured, airline approved, reasonably priced and much prettier in person. I take my pup to work with me and travel with her so I needed a bag with duel purpose. This bag is simple yet elegant and also discrete enough to carry my baby to lunch or a bar after work. I have a 7/8lb Miniature Schnauzer and ordered a size Medium in Beige. SiSi fits nicely in it with room for a toy, blanket, and bone. Great buy!
This quilted small dog carrier is perfect for the busy dog mom who doesn’t want to have to leave pup at home! Its got two large pockets on either side of the carrier that can store treats or anything else you need to bring with you, which means you don’t even need to bring a purse if you’ve got this!
Perfect for my 4.5 pound Yorkie! The bag is light and discreet to carry around my dog anywhere. it has enough space for my dog to turn around and be laying down. i would say bag is appropriate for dogs between 3 to 7 lb. it has pockets on both sides so that I don’t have to carry an extra purse. it has a support pad that you can take out and clean. only con is that i wish it had more ventilation through the sides, because when you are up zipped up, you have less air going through. overall, i am happy with my purchase and i recommend it.
This Yorkie carrier comes with zippers that lock so your dog can’t weasel his way out! Plus, this one comes with a rustic leather look so it’s not quite as girly as some of the small dog carriers out there, but is still super affordable at only $28.74.
I looked at a few other carriers but I liked the Pupkiss Pets carrier because it looked well made. I also like that it has good ventilation and is
lightweight. The carrier has a little side window that zips open for our little girl ( Clover) to stick her head out so she can look around. Perfect size comfy little bed that comes with it too. We use it to take her shopping, visit family, and to the vet.
Like to take pup for hikes, but his little legs get tired before yours do? Check out this backpack Yorkshire Terrier carrier that doubles as an airplane carrier and folds up for easy storage. This backpack dog carrier packs a serious punch, won’t break the budget at just under $40, and looks great, too!
I have a 7lb yorkie and it is the perfect size and comfortable to wear for me. Cannot wait to go back packing in Mexico with her.
Have a tiny pup who loves to look out the window, but is a bit too short? These doggy booster seats are just cracking us up! This adorable dog car seat with a built in harness clip to keep pup strapped in will take car rides up a notch for your Yorkshire Terrier, and at less than $20 it’s really reasonably priced, too.
Before purchased this seat my dog, Lil Bit, would try to sit in my neck to see out the window… Now that she has this seat she sits confidently in it.
