Best Airline Travel Bags & Carriers

Going on a vacation or visiting family and you want to bring your dog? Most airlines have requirements that the dog you bring into the airplane cabin needs to fit into a carrier that fits under the seat in front of you. Based on that it means that usually only small dogs travel in the cabin. You might want a pet carrier for travelling on the train or to put in the car as well.
You need to look up the requirements of your specific airline you will be flying with as the requirements differ from airline to airline. 
Nevertheless, the following are the best dog travel carriers we found, that have been used for traveling with a pet.
