Like a puppy in a sling! The latest accessory for pampered pets that allows you to carry them like a baby | Mail Online

from www.dailymail.co.uk

It’s often said that people have pets instead of a baby – and now dog owners can carry them like one, too, with the latest must-have pet accessory.

Previously, pampered pets such as Paris Hilton’s diamante-wearing chihuahua Tinkerbell have been carted about in designer handbags – but now there’s a new carrier designed especially for our four-legged friends.

Similar to the way slings are used by parents to hold their babies, the Puppoose enables owners to transport their pets in fashionable comfort – and is said to be the first hands-free way of carrying your dog.

It was designed by dancer and dog
lover Shannon Beach, who owns a shih tzu, Ted D. Shannon said: ‘It was
created out of necessity. I couldn’t find a carrier that suited my
active lifestyle and was fashionably appealing.

‘My
vet told me the best way to carry a small dog is on your forearm with
legs hanging on either side. I used this concept for the base of the
product, which distributes their weight evenly. Then I added straps so I
could free my arm, making it hands-free.

‘When I saw it made people laugh, it was obvious I had created a unique business opportunity.

‘It’s
great for people who enjoy biking, hiking or rollerblading and want
their little dogs with them, and for handicapped or older dogs that
can’t walk long distances. And in extreme weather conditions, it keeps
your pet off hot asphalt or out of the snow and rain.’

Shannon
crocheted about 50 slings to experiment with different materials before
finding a company in Hong Kong to manufacture the Puppoose. It costs
£37 and comes in four sizes and a choice of colours. It can carry dogs
weighing up to 22lb.
