Dog Bag Extra Small

RRP: £75.00
Code: EBDBXS_01

Dog Bag is fundamentally a much gentler, warmer, and all round snugger refuge for a pet than a steel cage or a plastic crate. The base is square rather than rectangular so it takes up less space in the boot of the car, and the top of it squashes down in low ceiling cars. Take the Dog Bag Extra Small out of its rucksack, unfold it, and your pet has a 45cm x 45cm x 45cm (approx 18" square) home from home.

Transport your small dog or cat in safety, comfort and style in an 'Extra Small' Dog Bag. It's designed to fit on a passenger seat, using the special seat belts provided (see pictures above). Alternatively, it can just as easily be fixed to the car boot tie-down points, or pegged down into grass or sand.

Take the Dog Bag out of its rucksack, unfold it, and your pet has a 45cm x 45cm x 45cm (approximately 18" square) home from home, supported by integral sprung steel hoops.

To provide for easy access, wherever it's fitted, this Dog Bag has three zippered doors - left, right and front.

The rucksack is only 23cm high x 18cm wide x 12cm deep (approximately 9" x 7" x 5") - ideal for hanging on a coat hook when not in use, or storing in the boot of the car. It includes one accessories pocket, and is made to the same quality and component specifications as the Dog Bag, i.e.

  • waterproof Heavy Duty Fabric
  • fully fabric-taped double-sewn seams
  • toggled extra strong YKK zips.

It shouldn't take more than 45 seconds to fold up your Dog Bag and place it back into its rucksack.

Please note that if you intend to take your pet e.g. camping or caravanning, and will be keeping it outside, you may do better to buy a Dog Bag Small, where accessories include a North Pole kit (a quilted liner and wind-proof sides), a Mud and Snow kit to keep the normal bedding dry, and even a specially designed tent.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our Standard three to five day service is £6.50 (£14.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Express Delivery (one or three days) is £9.50 (£19.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (courier, usually Express Delivery).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Express Delivery need to be received by 4pm.

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday.

What about Next Working Day delivery? 
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express Delivery’.  Many Express Delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, but some will arrive on the second working day, or be split between these two days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can, and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.

Payment options:

We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".

The Dog Bag Story

Dog Bag was designed by two Italian dog owners, Emanuele Bianchi and Giovanni Bertoli, who wanted a transport system that was safer, kinder, more convenient and more flexible than a metal or plastic crate. So, “thinking outside the box”, and taking advice from pet psychologists, they soon realised that it would need to be made of fabric – waterproof, softer and warmer than steel or plastic. The fabric would need to be thick enough to be supportive, and immensely strong. It would stand upright with an integral sprung steel frame, and fold neatly away when not in use. It would have to provide sufficient UV protection – it’s almost always sunny in Italy! – as well as masses of ventilation. It would at the same time need to be cosy and comfortable as well as being spacious and airy. There’d be strong ground or car boot fixings, and also a system for fixing it to the back seats of cars.

It is was going to be a good seller, owners would need to appreciate the extra functionality and flexibility of the new product, and dogs would need to be seen to be comfortable about using it. So it would also have to be light to carry, leave boot space left free for other items, be completely free of rattling noises, carry no risk of damage to the car, and trap all dog hair and mud within it - to be shaken out later.

“It” became Dog Bag.

Folded Dog Bags need a stuff sack to prevent them from springing open, so why not make this into a useful accessory? The stuff sack soon became a rucksack, complete with a range of useful sized pockets for accessories. Owners use the main rucksack for carrying the dog’s food and feeding and water bowls when away from home.

There’s a range of accessories which provide additional protection from cold, wind, sun and rain - and internal accessories for extra comfort. These include a collection of practical, comfortable and hardwearing beds that can either be used on their own or placed in a Dog Bag of appropriate size. Familiarity reduces stress.

Dog Bags are expected to last for years, so there is no compromise on quality. The ‘High Density Fabric’ is an incredibly hard wearing and fully waterproof 1800 Denier ballistic nylon. All seams are taped and double sewn, and beefy YKK zips are used throughout. Nothing but the best.

If anyone can think of ways to improve the Dog Bag, we want to hear from you!

So, what do the users think?

A dog’s perspective:

  • I don’t get left behind nowadays; my place comes with me and they don’t have to find me somewhere to sleep.
  • If they’re getting a bit boring I can go back to my Dog Bag for some P and Q.
  • Until Dog Bag arrived I had to sleep in the car in a cold and rusting cage. (It wasn’t my fault I once chewed Aunt Molly’s chair leg during the night.)
  • Excellent visibility – I can see out whether I’m lying down or standing up.
  • I curl up against one corner of my Dog Bag when travelling and I feel safe and secure.
  • Dog Bag is nice and airy – it lets the fresh air and nice smells in and my nasty smells out!
  • When I’m zipped into my Dog Bag in the boot of the car I can’t go running off any more when they open the tailgate – BORING!
  • They let me back in the car now even when I’m wet and muddy; “walkies” nowadays are much more interesting, although they still complain if I roll in dead rabbit.
  • Sometimes my Dog Bag and I come and join them in the garden, and I can shelter from the sun.
  • “Cool in summer, warm in winter.”
  • Compared to metal cages and plastic boxes, Dog Bag is just “Cool!”
  • Sometimes she picks up a friend and the other dogs travel with me, 3 in a bag! When we travel in the friend’s saloon car my Dog Bag goes on the rear seat.

An owners’ perspective:

  • He’s so much calmer about travelling nowadays – he knows it’s his bed. We just put his normal blanket in the bottom of it and in he jumps. He doesn’t rampage around the back of the car any more.
  • It’s so light and easy to use – we use it every time we go out, and don’t leave him at home half as much as we used to.
  • We use the rucksack for carrying his bowl, food, toys and lead.
  • It keeps the car clean, dry, and almost completely free of dog hairs.
  • The car doesn’t have that wet dog smell like it used to.
  • The cage we had was so large, heavy and awkward. And it rattled, and it scratched the leather on the back of the rear seat. And anyway it’s too big to fit our new car, so we were looking for a new solution.
  • Now we can fit the dog and our luggage or shopping into the boot.
  • It’s brilliant when we’re staying with friends, or even just visiting them. Sometimes we peg the Dog Bag onto the lawn, other times we have tied it onto suitable objects and he’s slept in the kitchen overnight. We were never happy with leaving him in the car, and if the car needed to be parked on the street, we just couldn’t go away at all.
  • It wasn’t immediately clear to us how we folded it, but the pictures in the brochure made it clear, and the video clip on the web site makes it look very easy. We soon got the hang of it.
  • Sometimes I even take him to the office; last summer we took him to the beach.
