Yes, it’s easy to put your dog into the Doggy Cruiser. While you can do it alone, we recommend asking for assistance the first few times you and your dog use the Doggy Cruiser.
• One person holds the dog while the other tucks the dog’s front legs through the arm holes at the top of the bag.
• Put the dog’s back feet into the bag
• Carefully zip the bag from tail to collar avoiding catching any fur in the zipper.
One person:• Lay the bag on the floor
We designed Doggy Cruiser with the comfort of you and your dog in mind. Your dog sits in a natural, upright position inside the bag, so they feel happy and secure throughout the adventure. When the bag is on your back, your body will provide the extra support they need, allowing them to relax and take in the view.
We recommend giving your dog some ‘time out’ from the Doggy Cruiser every 45 or so minutes. Take a break, stretch the legs, have a treat or two and then pack up again and continue your adventure…
We know you can’t wait to get out there and enjoy the freedom that the Doggy Cruiser will bring. That’s why we try our best to ship orders within one day of receiving them. We will notify you when your Doggy Cruiser is on its way. You will receive orders within five working days.
Safety first! Doggy Cruiser bags can carry dogs up to the 13kg maximum. We do not recommend carrying dogs in Doggy Cruiser over this maximum weight.
We love adventure, but we love our dogs more! That’s why we have done everything possible to ensure the Doggy Cruiser is as safe as possible for dog and human.
Our three-step safety system consists of:
• Adjustable straps secured under the wearer’s arms
• Adjustable chest strap for the wearer.
• Attachable D ring that fits onto your dog’s collar
Buying the right size Doggy Cruiser is the most crucial step; once you have the right size bag, you can make small adjustments to the straps to hold your dog in place. Doing so will help your dog feel secure and ‘held’.

Just like us, dogs come in all shapes and sizes so please don’t guess how tall Fido is – get your tape measure and follow the instructions below.
Measuring instructions :
You need to measure your dog in the same position as it sits in the Doggy Cruiser. This means measuring it while on its back legs, bottom on the floor (a ‘begging’ position).
Ask someone to hold the dog’s front paws up and off the ground, so its back is straight while you measure from the base of its tail to the collar.
Repeat this measurement to double-check.
Use this measurement to choose the correct size.
