Most Wanted Dog Carriers
Haute Couture Accessories for Doggy Divas
Do you consider yourself a fashionista — even when it comes to accessorizing your canine companion?
Perhaps you liken yourself to a few fashion-forward celebrities who tote their pups in luxurious dog carriers bearing iconic, name-brand labels. Who knew that Chanel® made dog carriers?
Maybe you did. Or, maybe, you have a dog too large to fit into a carrier (or your pet budget has limitations), so you simply admire these high-end accessories from afar.
Whether you're shopping — or just window shopping, here are some of the most-wanted dog carriers on the market.
Louis Vuitton® Monogram Canvas Dog Bag
Considered one of the most popular amongst the Hollywood elite, this signature monogrammed Louis Vuitton dog carrier has been seen swung over the arms of Jessica Simpson, Heidi Montag, Rebecca Gayheart and Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr, to name a few.
It may look like a handbag from the front, but turn it to the side and you’ll see a side mesh window with a roll-up flap that provides your dog both breathing room and a view to the outside world. Better yet? This $2,100 Louis Vuitton dog carrier has a washable lining so you can keep this haute tote in pristine condition.
Gucci® Dog Carrier
Does your dog aspire to be a Gucci poochie?
Gucci's designer dog bag features a full opening on one side, mesh on the other, with a removable and washable interior cushion. There's even an attached short leash with clip inside. For fussy fashionistas, Gucci offers a variety of colors and sizes from which to choose. Prices range from $895 to $2,580.
Not only will you be one of the most luxurious-looking dog owners on the street, you'll be keeping company with Gucci-clad celebrities such as Vanessa Minillo and Jessica Simpson.
UGG® Carrier for Dogs
With its trademark plush fur trim and soft twin-faced sheepskin, this UGG carrier may be best suited for laid-back pups. Singer Ashlee Simpson carries Blondie, her Maltipoo, in an UGG dog bag on casual jaunts around Los Angeles.
In a departure from their traditional style, UGG also offers a versatile black nylon and mesh dog carrier. Both dog carriers will set you back $260. Coordinating UGG shoes not required to carry these bags in style.
Ralph Lauren® Crocodile Dog Carrier
Perhaps the granddaddy of all designer dog bags is Ralph Lauren's $18,000 luxurious crocodile skin (yes, it's the real deal) carrier with brass hardware. Consider it an investment. Available in black, the price tag does not include the dog in the picture. We have yet to spot a Hollywood trendsetter toting a pup in this doggy bag.
Maybe fashionistas have limitations, too.
