If you decide to bring a kitten or a puppy, and at the same time you are an avid traveler, or you want the animal to spend the most time with you, you should think about buying a carry in advance.

Inside the metal cage, you can put your favorite bedding or a bowl of food. At first, keep the doors open; the animal must understand that nothing threatens it.
    2. Play with your pet near the cage, the animal must make sure that it is not scary, but rather fun. Over time, try to leave the treat inside, so that the pet itself climbed for a snack. In no case do not push your pet against his will into the carrier, so you can only break the psyche and make the cage forever enemy number 1.
    3. As soon as you notice that the dog has started to enter calmly, close the door and slightly hold it. At the same time, praise your friend and, if you wish, you can be encouraged by the delicacy of his achievement. If the pet starts to get nervous, whine – in a strict but calm voice, “interrupt him”. As soon as he calms down, immediately praise, and do not forget to treat through the door. Train, and as soon as the dog behaves calmly and quietly in a closed cage, congratulations. You did everything right.
