I bought this product through Amazon from PPE Pet Supplies simply because it was the cheapest price. Amazon was selling the same product in a smaller size and/or color for almost ten dollars more. I paid $21.78 for a black size medium--including shipping. Amazon is now selling this size and color--but the product description is STILL INACCURATE.

First, you should note that the product description stays almost the same no matter what size you choose--and ALL SIZES make the claim that the product will hold up to 20 pounds. (as of this writing, anyways.) I read many reviews before deciding my best bet was to save myself both heartache and ten bucks by ordering a size medium--when more than likely I only needed a size small.

My dog is a Chihuahua and weighs in at eight pounds. I'm sure the small would have worked as she has plenty of room in the size medium, and really, the product is a little too "TALL" for her when she sits with all fours on the bottom of the product. But it works fine and was worth this non-perfection in order to save ten bucks.

So here are the ACTUAL MEASUREMENTS of this product: SIZE MEDIUM, BLACK--bottom that your dog will sit and/or lay in measures 9X11. That means it measures ELEVEN INCHES LONG (the length of your pet???) by NINE inches wide (how wide is your pet?) And it is 9.5 inches HIGH. (how tall is your pet when SITTING?????) My little girl's chin does NOT reach 9.5 inches when she is sitting, so I sort of pull down gently on the canvas and help her peek over it. More often than not she rides with her front paws hanging over the edge and cushions herself.

One last thought--the bottom of this product bends/bows with the weight of the dog. I personally couldn't imagine it carrying a 20 pound dog. If you're dog weighs more than 15 pounds--even if she/he would fit, I don't think you'd be happy toting your dog very far in this.

I was looking for a carrier I could use to hold my dog while riding my bike. After reading all of the reviews, I decided to purchase the size Medium pet carrier, even though I have a 6 1/2 pound chihuahua. I am very glad I did because there is no way I would have felt comfortable with him fitting in a size Small. When sitting in the carrier, his head and most of his neck stick out of the top. I like that it has a draw string because I think it gives him a feeling of being supported; I also like the attached clip that I can hook onto his collar.

The first time he was put in it, he was a bit apprehensive and wouldn't sit down, so of course he was sticking out of it too far for my comfort. I just walked him around outside and he started relaxing. The second time we used it, he was eager to get in it and sat down right away. Within a couple of minutes he was curled up in it. It's a bit of a tight sqeeze to do much more than sit or curl up, but he seemed to be content. I did like the hands-free aspect of this carrier and I can see me using it when we go shopping or walking around town. The mesh pockets will also be useful to hold his leash and snacks.

I felt that the carrier was pretty secure once I tightened the straps across my back and snapped the belt. We had a different version of this carrier previously and even though it was very small, I used it when bike riding. This one should be much better - and much safer. Heed everyone's warning about how small this runs and get one size bigger than you think you need. Overall, this is just what I was looking for, so my dog and I are happy with my purchase.

This is a great bag, and my Chihuahua puppy loves it...however, if you have an animal larger than 7-10 pounds, you would need one size bigger. the compartment size is about the size of a six pack of coke, so bear that in mind. I know for a fact that my 19 pound pug would not fit half of him in there. Otherwise, the bag is great construction, and a cute idea.

My little poodle loves to be next to "Mommy" and she loves this carrier, me too. I can take her with me on hikes or anywhere pets are allowed. Our dog is extremely friendly and loves the attention she gets! She weighs about ten pounds and we bought the medium. It gives her plenty of room to sit up or lay down if she likes. We love it!

I purchased size Small for my 5.1 lb Chihuahua, after trying to squish her in a couple of times I got out the tape measure.

The interior (useable) space in front 8.5" high, 8" across and 4" side width (depth). My Chi is 13" long, 5" wide and 7" high not counting her head and gigantic ears so you see the dilemma.

The other issue I found was the way it fits, if you are a large busted person there is no way the strap will cross in the back so its just kind of hooked over the shoulders, not comfortable and won't stay on (especially with weight in it) unless you hold it which defeats the purpose. To sum it up I would say the size small carrier is absolutely perfect for a flat chested person with a guinea pig.

I just received my pet a roo carrier and I have mixed feelings. I bought the Medium size based on other reviews I read (thank you!) and I'm glad I did. The size small would have been way too tiny for my Yorkies. My 6 lb. Yorkie fits comfortably and so far loves to be in the carrier. My 10 lb. Yorkie was not as thrilled. He had a hard time laying down in the carrier, and with his paws out over the top - I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable having him in there without supporting him...making it not so hands free. The harness clip does help, and my guess is that he'll settle in eventually. We plan to use it mostly when we travel so that we can have hands free at the airport! I'm still hopeful. It would be nice if they made a "Large" size. I think that would give people more options, especially since they run small. We could probably even fit both our pups in, which would be super. Oh - and in case you're wondering how it'll stay on your back (I sure was), the directions are to cross the straps on your back. It fits snugly and the straps allow for customizable comfort. Overall, I'm glad I purchased.
