Kyjen Sling-go Pet Sling
(4 out of 5)
The Sling-Go Pet Sling combines lightweight construction with a unique sling design.

If your pet feels most comfortable being as close to you as possible, the Sling-Go Pet Sling is a solid option for carrying your small dog or cat on walks.
Fashioned like an open, over-the-shoulder messenger bag, the Sling-Go Pet Sling is extremely lightweight and comfortable. A collar clip ensures that pets are securely anchored in case they get the urge to leap out and explore the great outdoors, and a generous elastic opening helps pets feel safe without causing any discomfort.
Although the design makes the Sling-Go Pet Sling impractical for car trips or long trips, the carrier does have certain advantages that more traditional carriers don’t. For pets who aren’t quite up to long walks or hikes, such as younger or aging pets, the carrier is an easy way to help ensure that you can get your pet home when he becomes overtired.
The Sling-Go Pet Sling is also ideal for new four-legged members of your household or for fostered pets, who may feel insecure or upset when separated from you and want more frequent “cuddle time,” even as you are trying to work around the house. Because the design of the sling puts animals close to your chest, the warmth and feeling of your heartbeat can help to soothe and reassure them – and during a trial run with a newly-adopted cat, this feature was a definite bonus, helping to alleviate skittishness almost immediately.
Owners will also appreciate that the nylon construction and wide, adjustable strap combine to help make your 20-lb. (and, as the product specifies, no more than 20-lb!) pet load seem lighter.
Pros: Closeness reassures skittish pets; lightweight and easy-to-use.
Cons: Not as effective for long travel trips.
