PocoPet Is the World’s Most Compact Pet Carrier

The pocket-sized, ultralight pet carrier can be attached to a leash or tossed in a purse- so you can always have it with you when the need arises.


Small dog owners have the advantage of being able to pick up their pooch in their hands and carry them around when they need it. However, it doesn’t mean that holding your pet in your arms is the easiest or safest route: they can get restless and try to wiggle out, it’s tiring after a while, and you won’t be able to anything else besides carrying them (forget about doing some pet-friendly shopping, let me tell you right away). That’s why, as a proud parent of a petite pooch herself, Jenn Sturiale came up with the design for PocoPet.

Instead of having to pick up and carry her precious tiny mutt rescue, Max von Schnoodle, she wanted to get a pet carrier that’s lightweight for daily use. However, she had no luck finding anything that she could carry around with her at all times- which inspired her to create the world’s most compact pet carrier.

Designed for unplanned situations, PocoPet is a pooch-toting tote that can be quickly folded into a pocket-size pouch with a carabiner. The PocoPet will be there when your tiny pupper gets too tired on a walk, the sidewalk gets too hot for their precious paws, or you need to use public transport. Whenever you happen to be in a situation where your pet needs to be carried, just pull out a carrier from your bag or unhook it from the leash. Voila- simple as that!


While this super small pet carrier is lightweight, it doesn’t mean it’s not durable. The fabric is so-called ripstop nylon that prevents any potential holes or tears from spreading. This carrier is designed for pets that weigh 15 pounds or less, and are 13” long or less, measured from chest to butt. Currently, all petite pooch pawrents can snag a PocoPet on IndieGogo, starting at $29. A fab and affordable stocking stuffer for the upcoming holidays!
