How to Choose a Motorcycle Pet Carrier

Article by Chris Robertson

When choosing a motorcycle pet carrier, safety and practicality should be your main concerns. Keeping your pet safe is more important than having a fancy or stylish pet carrier. So what type of pet carrier should you choose when taking your cat or dog along for a motorcycle ride? Here are some key features that every motorcycle pet carrier or pet crate should have.

Durable and Protective

Probably the safest motorcycle pet carrier on the market is a pet crate made of hard, durable plastic. Some are even reinforced with lightweight aluminum for added strength. Pet crates made with an aerodynamic shape with these durable materials from top to bottom provide roll-cage like protection if an accident were to occur. Other types of pet carriers such as motorcycle pet bags, chest pouch carriers, and pet carrier tank pads, are not as safe because they expose the dog or cat, driver, and passenger to potential dangers and distractions.

Must-Have Safety Features

A motorcycle dog carrier or cat carrier should have certain safety features for everyone’s protection. Its cage door should be secure at all times with no chance of the door flying open while riding over bumps or on curves. Your pet should not be able to open the door from the inside. The interior of the pet crate should be free of any hazardous protrusions. It should not have screws or other objects protruding outward (on the interior) that could harm the pet during a quick stop or turn.

The bottom of the pet crate should be leak-free and have an absorbent material in the bottom (just in case). Also, be sure the motorcycle pet carrier can be securely mounted to your motorcycle. Some pet carriers come with special mounting made for that particular carrier to maximize safety.

Proper Ventilation

Any motorcycle dog carrier or other type of carrier should have proper ventilation. Be sure an opening is available just large enough for your dog to stick his head out and enjoy the breeze! Some pet crates have removable side rails that enable you to remove and replace them as needed on the trip.

Enough Space for Comfort

Make sure the pet carrier provides adequate space for your pet’s comfort while traveling. Your dog or cat should be able to move freely within the pet crate. They should be able to lie down, stand, and turn around with ease. Many pet crates come in various sizes so you can easily find the perfect fit for your pet.

Other features you might look for include a leash attachment, handles or grips for easy carrying by hand, and versatility. Versatility means the carrier can be easily converted into a scooter dog carrier, a hand-held carrier, or a bicycle pet carrier. This will save you money in the long run.

A motorcycle pet carrier with these mind-easing safety features will likely cost a little more than many other carriers, but you might save your pet’s life by spending just a little more. Pet travel can be fun once you find a motorcycle pet carrier you can trust!

Question by Jesus: How picky are airlines about the size of pet carriers for traveling with pets in cabin?
We’ll be traveling internationally with Continental and Lufthansa. Both airlines have different size requirements for pet carriers–we have two mini dachshunds. Lufthansa requires 21.6 x 15.7 x 7.9 inches. Continental is 18 x 11 x 11 inches. Are they going to get out tape measures at the ticket counter? If we’re an inch or two over will it be OK? It’s impossible to to find pet carriers that are exactly the dimensions required. All tips about particular pet carriers or flying with pets would be greatly appreciated.

Best answer:

Answer by Herfnerd
They will be very particular because the carriers must fit under the seat in front of you – two inches over the limit will cause you a problem

(PRWEB) September 13, 2012

With the historic Sept. 12 launch from tech giant Apple, tech fanatics and general consumers alike are weighing the features of the iPhone 5 and reflecting on the legacy of Steve Jobs. CEO Tim Cook confirmed the exponentially growing success of Apple, which boasts 380 stores in 12 countries and some 83 million Apple store visitors last quarter.

Highlights of the numerous new features include: 4-inch screen display with five rows of app icons, 4G LTE network compatibility, battery providing 225 hours on standby and eight hours in use, larger photos, high-def panorama photos, three microphones with noise-canceling earpiece, newly developed Ear Buds, and more.

With a price point of $ 770 when purchased without a carrier, the iPhone 5 is no small investment, which is why, the number one gadget insurer, provides iPhone coverage plans for US customers starting at $ 7.99 per month that include guaranteed 24 hour replacement and protection again loss and theft, and more.

As respondents confirmed in a survey conducted prior to the iPhone 5 announcement, almost two thirds (64%) of participants ranked the super fast mobile internet connection highest on a sliding scale[1], which asked smartphone fans to rank a host of innovative features in order of importance. Only one fourth (25%) of respondents rated Voice command features as important[1] smartphone innovations.

Mobile wallet technology, which allows smartphone users to make contactless payments for goods in shops, but which has provoked debate on the importance of mobile security and identity fraud, was only ranked as very important by 38% of those polled. Full statistics from the survey available below.

Stephen Ebbett, director of, comments: Given that data is king for smartphone users, its no surprise that mobile fans are most excited by super fast 4G connectivity which will significantly slash download times. And with data rinsing batteries, wireless charging capabilities built into smartphones is bound to have mass market appeal.

Voice command is one of those functions that sounds great, but the reality is that its probably quicker to run an internet or contact search manually, hence why its failed to instil much excitement in smartphone users.

    These SturdiBags are great for traveling. I used one on a plane before and really like it.

    The dimensions are the maximum sizes, so just have a carrier that is smaller than the smallest one stated and you will be fine.
    And yes, as the other poster stated, the carrier must fit ALL THE WAY under the seat, and if it doesn’t you will be require to deplane and purchase a suitable carrier from the gate agent.
