Product Review: Lovable Dog Sling Carrier

The Lovable Dog Sling Carrier is a sling carrier for toting around pursedogs. It comes in grey, blue, and pink. It is reversible, and the lining is brown with pink polka dots.

This sling is on Ru's short list of approved chihuahua carriers. The fabric is a soft cotton jersey knit, it's basically a sweatshirt shaped like a sling. The strap is wide enough to distribute the weight of Ru's hefty six pounds nicely. It is machine washable and pretty cute. There is a removable strap with a leash clip for keeping the occupant tethered, but it attaches by clipping around the strap so it isn't particularly useful for keeping the dog in the pouch itself.

Ru likes the Lovable Dog sling because it isn't terribly deep, so he doesn't sink down and get lost in it. I like it because it is subtle and doesn't really draw attention to itself.

Pros: Light and comfy, but somewhat insulated for cold puppies. Casual and low-key. Machine washable, easy-care fabric. Inexpensive.

Cons: Made in China and imported, like pretty much everything else. Only comes in pastel colors. Tether will keep dog attached to the sling, but not actually inside.

Bottom Line: I like this better than any of the other sling carriers I've tried on, and it's the only one Ru will actually chill out and ride around in.
