I've noticed that when it comes to designer accessories like handbags, fans love to match them with other accessories. So if they buy a Gucci handbag, they'll want a Gucci wallet and key chain.. and a Gucci pet carrier too. Here are 10 of the newest styles of designer pet carriers from the likes of Louis Vuitton, Juicy, Burberry, Gucci and more..
(Editor's Note: This article highlights dog carriers that were available in 2009. As with most fashion items, unfortunately most of these dog carriers are no longer available. You may want to go to the sites for the designer you are interested in and search for dog carriers on their site.)

With the same sturdy water and scratch resistant fabric as his handbags, for which he is well-known, the Dog Bag 40 & 50 sport a washable lining, brass hardware and real leather handles and trim. The top-loading Dog Bag 40 is nice and roomy at 15.7'L x 11.8'H x 8.6'W, as is the Dog Bag 50 at 19.7'L x 13.4'H x 9'W. I love that cute lil' roll-up shade! You can even personalize the 'dog tag.'

The second zipper feature on the side of the new Gucci tote Pet Carrieris quite handy, as if pooch wants to stand up and look out (and whatpooch wouldn't?) she won't be choked.

TheBaxter Bag has a less traditional, but still very identifiable, LouisVuitton look. The Baxter Bag is extremely sturdy, as well as elegant,and able to carry a 44 pound dog! (But I submit that if your dogweighs that much and fits into this Baxter Bag GM,15.3'L x 10.6'H x 7.5'W, she is quite a bit overweight!).

Not Really Hautiest Designer Pet Carrier # 11 - The Gift Box Carrier aka The Tiffany Blue Pet Carrier
TheTiffany Blue Pet Carrier was not created by Tiffany's, and thereforedoesn't fit into my grouping of haute couture pet carrier designers.

Designed by petcouturier Puppy & Co., the 14'L x 7' W x 9'H Tiffany Blue Pet Carrier is top loaded with Velcro closures and has three windows for your puppy to regard her surroundings. Great job!
That's the buzz for today!
A carriage dog or coach dog refers to a type of dog rather than a specific breed. Dogs of this type were usually bred and trained to trot alongside carriages to protect the occupants from banditry or other interference. They were usually owned and used by the wealthy or traders and merchants. The dogs were trained to attack the horses used by highwaymen, giving the owners' human security time to respond to the actual robbers.
When the Dalmatian breed was introduced to England in the 18th century, they quickly became the carriage-dog breed of choice. Because of this, 'carriage dog' became synonymous with 'Dalmatian'. The British Carriage Dog Society exists to preserve 'the working heritage of the Dalmatian as a coaching dog.' Previously any breed with long legs and some weight in the body had been used.
The number of dogs accompanying any coach could be an indicator of the occupants' wealth or status: some well-situated people would run six or eight dogs.
Coach dogs were kennelled in the stables, and bonded with the horses as pups. They were trained to regard strange horses on the road as hostile, and it was up to the human security to ensure other riders were warned to stay clear of the coach on the road. A more civic usage was as fire-engine escorts, helping to clear the way in crowded streets as well as guarding the very expensive horses in their stables.
With the demise of horse-drawn transport, the need for the dogs declined, and they became largely ceremonial assets, but were often repurposed as static house and barn guard dogs. Today carriage dogs are valued as loyal pets and companions.

[T]hese dogs were the best of aids in training spirited young carriage-horses. The horse constantly looked out for the dog as it ran by its side, paid attention to it, and was so much engaged in thinking of its stable companion the dog, that it was far less nervous, fidgetty, and shy than when taken out alone. .. In the stables, which were large, the carriage-dog always had one favourite horse, which he slept with.
