Hard-Shell Pet Carriers
If you are looking for extra durability, hard-shell pet carriers are a good choice because of their ruggedness. Many times, it's just a matter of personal preference, but some people like hard-shell pet carriers because they are easier to clean than soft-sided pet carriers, and they offer a little added protection because of their stronger shell. If you're traveling with your pet on an airplane and your pet is too large to fit in a soft-sided carrier or a hard-shell pet carrier under the seat, such as the Petmate Cabin Kennel Pet Carrier, an airline-approved, hard-shell pet carrier is the answer to offer comfort and safety in the cargo area. They're also a good choice for quick jaunts across town or traveling with your pet in the car on longer road trips.
