The 'Dinky' carry bag

The 'Dinky' bag!

This carry bag is surely the most stunning bag in the world! The black PVC material complements, and contrasts perfectly with, the grey nylon lining and detail and black straps and fastenings. This carry bag is cute enough for girls to carry - and macho enough for boys to carry it too! Take it in turns!

Take a look at the 'Dinky' bag!The montage alongside illustrates lots of the features of the 'Dinky'.

The main image in the centre shows how the 'Dinky' looks when it's zipped closed (except there's no dog in it!). Just look how well-padded it is!

Top left of the montage (A) shows the 'Dinky' unzipped. Visible inside - hanging down just behind the front opening - is the elasticated restraining clip; fasten it to your pooch's collar and there's no risk of a runaway! (Particularly relevant for excitable cats - we don't want any escape dramas, do we!). Behind the restraining clip is the removable, reversable, reinforced base (illustrated with its black side up).

Bottom left (C) shows the 'Dinky' with the removable, fabric-covered, base taken out and placed under the carry bag (to aid understanding we've shown both sides of the removable base). One side of the removable base is black and the other side grey. It's completely reversable, so you can have uppermost whichever fabric you prefer. One end of the removable base can be zipped open (the zip is the black edging you can see in the photo), enabling the luxuriously-padded reinforcing material to be removed before the fabric is washed.

When the outside world isn't sufficiently interesting to retain your pooch's interest, the lavishly-padded bottom and sides of the 'Dinky' enable your pooch to sit or lie down in complete comfort (we know you'll want your pooch to be nice and comfy!).

And finally, bottom right (D) is a photo of just the most lovable little quizzical yorkie - included for no better reason than to give this page an "Ahhhh, how cute is that!" feeling!

The 'Dinky' carry bag not only looks gorgeous - it even feels gorgeous, being padded with a truly luxurious 2cm (0.75") of thick, soft, foam and enhanced with an elegantly-embroidered 'paw' motif on one side.

The zip is nylon so won't deteriorate through washing; the 'Dinky' carry bag is fully-washable - 30 degrees hand or machine wash. 

Fully-adjustable strap lengths: The 'Dinky' is completed with two black shoulder straps which can be adjusted to the exact length that suits you! For wearing over the shoulder, at their maximum length the shoulder straps have a generous 50cm (20") centre drop. For carrying handbag-style the centre-drop can be reduced to a minimum of 25cm (10"). The straps are made using a textured material to maximise their grip on your shoulder - so you're not forever having to battle with another slipping shoulder strap! The insets in the main photo above show the Small 'Dinky' being carried with the straps at the maximum and minimum extensions. If it helps with your assessment of how cool the 'Dinky' will look on you, the young lady in the photo is 1.6m (5' 3") tall.

The base of the carry bag is also manufactured from black PVC - the right colour and the right material to resist and hide marks!

The 'Dinky' is very flexible; whilst it has the rigidity to remain erect on its own (the photos above don't use any props), it readily compresses down for easy storage until it's no more than the thickness of its material.

Small Dinky Medium Dinky
Measurements at the base of the 'Dinky':
Length:   40.0cm 15.5" 46.0cm 18.0"
Width:   23.0cm 9.0" 26.0cm 10.0"
Height:   24.0cm 9.5" 31.0cm 12.5"
Diameter of opening for pet's head when zip fully closed:  
10.0cm 3.5" 12.5cm 5.0"

In the same way that dogs are wider at the bottom than they are at the top, the carry bag also tapers towards the top.

Length of closing zip:

38.0cm 15.0" 48.0cm 19.0"
Please be realistic when estimating if your pet will fit in either of these carry bags.

Suggested maximum distance from pet's shoulders to floor:

17.5cm 7.0" 24.0cm 9.0"

Incredibly light weight: An extra piece of good news is the minimal weight of the 'Dinky'. Typically, pooches which fit in the Small 'Dinky' carry bag can be expected to be in the weight range of 1.8 - 3.5 kilos (4 - 8lbs). This carry bag will add just 800 grams (1.75lbs) - less than the weight of a bag of sugar! The Medium 'Dinky' weighs just a little more at 1,000 grams (2.2lbs). This really is remarkably light - we've seen carry bags made to a similar style and size which weight twice as much! When you've been carrying a pooch around town all afternoon you'll realise that every gram counts! You won't find many carry bags - of any quality! - lighter than the 'Dinky'!

And don't forget - free with every 'Dinky' bag is a Pink Princess car aerial ball!

Your very own Pink Princess!

Won't you and your pooch make a pretty pair!
