    Default Outward Hound Sling-go

    I got this so i could take zack into stores where food is sold, i think it's against health code laws but hoping that if i have him way up off the floor, he might get by more easily and my hands are free for shopping. Also, if necessary, i could put a jacket over him so he doesn't show. There's one neighborhood store i take him into, carrying him in my arms, but it's hard to manage when it comes time to pay, while holding him at the same time.

    I was surprised at how much he liked it. I expected him to resist a little when i first tried to put him in it, the opening is a little awkward to get his backlegs into, because it has elastic in it and isn't very wide, but he didn't resist and really settled into it like he was happy to be there. It has a pretty cozy feeling. The second picture is after i took it off and set it down on the couch. He just stayed in it, wasn't in any hurry to get out.

    It's comfortable on my shoulder. I got it on ebay but they have them at stores like www.petguys.com too.

    Oh wow I love it Zack looks really comfortable in it too. It's just not safe to leave them outside stores anyway, Judy

    The only time my two get left home is when I go shopping or to a friend who has an elderly Doberman. He wouldn't hurt my two but Maxx terrorises the poor old man Oh yeah and if I am working (which isn't very often ). They even have to come in the car if I drop my son off to school LOL

    I love the self pictures too. Zack has this look on his face that sort of says 'Mummy what are you doing?'

    Wow, have been looking for something like that for my Milly, she is only 3 months and I have to carry her on walks. I let her down to run for about 5 mins only, and then have to carry her. Ive been using a back pack carried to the front, but this sling looks great. Zack looks very comfy in it will try and order one from website,

    I have a friend of mine that is a breeder and she bought one to take her puppies on outings and stuff. She loved it so much! The puppies seemed to love it, they would cuddle up in it and just fall asleep. I think they just like being close to you
    We have a pet store here that sells them but I think they are a bit pricey. But I have not yet to shop online for them. I am sure they are cheaper online. We don't have many pet stores around here in the sticks...

    It may look like he's sitting up in the thing but he's not. He's laying on his back, or sitting on his lower back. If you can picture it, his hind legs are in the front, it's like he's cradled in it with his back legs sticking forward. His backbone is curved. I thought it might be uncomfortable but he seemed to like it, i was kind of surprised.

    Here's a picture of one on eBay from the same seller i got mine from--it shows a dog being carried lower than how i had it adjusted. I felt better with it higher. I paid about $26 including shipping. This one seems to cost less than mine did.

    Wow, I like that sling! How much does Zack weigh? That's a great idea!

    He looks so cute and comfortable in there. I've seen these in the stores before but haven't given it a try...I figured it wouldn't work with my cavalier...even though it is rated for up to 20 pounds it seems like cavaliers have longer legs than the average 20 pound pet. I will definitely try it out now!!! that would be perfect. I take Brodie almost every where and that would certainly come in handy.

    I have the same exact sling and Chester used to love me carrying him around in it when he was a pup!

    Zach is soooo cute in it!
