Today, there are dozens of different styles of carriers that attach to your bicycles handle bars, allowing you to stick your small dog inside for a fun trip for you both.

That said, there are virtually unlimited features, colors, and styles to choose from, so you can get the on-the-go look that is right for both you and your dog. For example, some carriers are padded, while others are wired. Some come in neutral colors, some are pastel, while others are bold and bright.

Nearly all dog bicycle carriers attach to the front of the bike, usually on the handlebars. This is because your dog is usually the safest when you can see him. However, there are a few models that attach to the side of your bicycle, and there are even trailers that hitch to the back of the bike. The choice you make depends entirely on what makes you the most comfortable. However, if you love to travel by bike, there is no reason you can not take your dog along for the ride!
