Shopping for a new dog bag in today’s marketplace comes with a few challenges. Especially if you’re looking for something more than the run-of-the-mill, mass-produced generic carriers found at big chain pet supply stores. Locating something fashionable while being of good quality can seem nearly impossible to find at times. BK Atelier attempts to fill that void with their collection of dog carriers.

Right away one of the big selling points to the BK Atelier line is it’s 100% vegan; the company’s motto is, “Made for animal not from animals.” Each piece has a classic silhouette, custom fabrication and attention to detail in both design and function. The company’s color palette is timeless and appealing to both women and men. With eight current designs being offered the carriers can accommodate small dogs ranging between 12 and 18 pounds depending on the bag and size you choose.

I’m a big advocate for bag training small dogs. Small breed dogs are compact and perfectly appropriate for traveling with their humans either to local cafes and retail shops or across country. All bags are not equal. I’m particular about my bag and will spend a little more to ensure I have something stylist and fun. I believe that a good dog bag is an investment.

In addition to being fashionable a dog carrier must also be functional for our pampered pooches. Luckily BK Atelier bags not only look good but work well for many pet parents. Looking specifically at the Bridget bag, I’m thoroughly impressed with its dual top zipper (meaning you can open it right, left or both at the same time); an inside safety anchor strap; inside and outside pockets; handles and a removal shoulder strap; and nickel free hardware. Like many high-end bags, the BK Atelier provides a dust cover to protect your bag while being stowed.

If you’re looking for something more than a plastic kennel or boring Sherpa bag consider the BK Atelier collection. The company has successfully married fashion and function to allow us doting pet parents to travel with our pampered pooches incognito while not sacrificing quality.
