If a sling is safe and easy for toting babies around, then why not create one for a dog or cat? That was the philosophy of the makers of baby sling Baby K’tan, who have introduced “pet-wearing” with their new pet carrier, Pet Teek, a cotton sling that can be worn three different ways to carry pets of up to 25 pounds, hands-free.
Ergonomically designed, the sling distributes the pet’s weight across the wearer’s back, and creates a comfy pouch that safely envelops your dog or cat when you’re out and about.
The carriers are machine-washable, come in black, camouflage or gray and are available in sizes S-XL for use by both men and women. Slings can be personalized with your pet’s name and all orders include a free matching bandana for your dog or cat. A percentage of proceeds from the $49.99 Pet Teek carriers benefit the Broadway Barks Foundation, helping to fund animal shelters and rescue groups.
