Editor's Notes

December 10, 2018:

We looked for a good combination of features that would both keep your dog calm and comfortable, and make each model simple for owners to pack up and move around. Since some pups specifically want a dark, enclosed space when they feel nervous, and others like to keep an eye on their humans at all times, we included some options with large windows, and others with smaller openings.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
