Default Carriers...Good or Bad???

I was thinking about buying my 9 month old Chihuahua a carrier, but I am not sure if I need to or not. what are the advantages and disadvantages about them???

I don't feel safe walking her on the street because, the neighbours dog who is 5 or 6 times her size always comes running out, and she's so tiny and frail I don't want anything to happen to her.

I guess its like a mother with a child

Any thoughts????

disadvantage i guess they wont be getting an exercise at all...and an advantage is being able to take them into stores/malls/streets when its cold/trains and such? its comfy if you get one that fits their needs! i love carriers now...i think im obsessed i have 3 and then 1 more coming well i have 4 but the other one is too too small so i dont count it lol

Well.....if you like to take her out alot, a carrier is nice if she poops out walking. They do tire faster than a big dog. Try something inexpensive at first to seee if she enjoys it. If soo, you can always find one really fun for her, or two, or three like dexters mom hee heee!!!!

I have one for daisy... but she's not allowed out as such yet so am using it for socialising purposes.. Will also use it to take her shopping with me so she can come into the shops undetected!! You could use it to get past the neighbours dog so shes can walk for a bit after!!

I got one for Darla, it was great for when she hadnt had all her shots so i could still take her places.
I still use it now and then, but mainly walk her.
Havent tried sneeking her in any shops, since i would always have Daisy with me and she would be walking anyway, lol

I personally think crriers are brilliant. theyre only little so dont need alot of excercise, so with a carrier they dont have to walk all the time, also you can take them into any shop with no problems. I recommend carriers. mine have the whole house and garden to run around and excercis ein wheneer they want x
