Giveaway: SturdiBag Pet Carrier

Cosmo waits for the rest of his bags at baggage claim
We're particularly excited about this giveaway since it's Cosmo's favorite way to travel.  Cosmo's traveled across the country and to Italy in his large SturdiBag, so we are thrilled to announce that SturdiProducts has provided us with one large SturdiBag to give away during our Birthday Week celebration.

We love the SturdiBag because it's lightweight and flexible enough to easily slide under an airplane seat. Measuring 12x12x18, it also provides Cosmo with the maximum amount of room allowed by Delta, the airline we travel most often.

If you want to know more about preparing for a long plane flight, we wrote about it here and we've also offered these tips for getting your pet comfortable with your travel bag before you embark on any trip.

Look closely to see Cosmo smiling in his SturdiBag!

Cosmo's bag slides easily under an airplane seat.

  4. This is AWESOME!! We travel with our dog everywhere we go... I can't stand to leave her behind... but we haven't traveled on a plan with her yet. I'm very nervous about it. But this would give me the courage to do so!

    What an awesome awesome giveaway!


  5. Hi this is Chazz The Dog...Congratulations on you Birthday Week Celebration. That's pawsitively pawesome.

    On to Giveaway business: That is such a cool carrier/travel bag...I would be proud to be seen in tht. BOL My Mommy is going to a Pet Blogger Conference next month but can't take me.

    Maybe next time with my own carrier I could go on the plane. Wait, now I need to get my doggie passport!! Okay, thanks for listening. Cya. Woof.


  6. Fabulous Giveaway! Thank you so very much for the chance to win this bag!

    I'm looking into a long distance adoption, and the little girl would have to fly to me, so of course a carrier like this is a must. She's a puppy mill rescue and would be coming from an area heavy with small rescue dogs due to the high volume of puppy mills in the area.

  7. Happy Birthday Week to Youuuu! We'll be taking Butters on a cross-country trip to San Francisco (from Boston) in August, and his current carrier is probably too small for him to be completely comfortable for a flight that long. Would be great to bring him in a bag that has already been tested and Cosmo-approved!

  8. Meowzers! What a way to travel in comfort & style! We'd looove to be entered into the giveaway! (Mommy's going to FLA in August, we'd LOVE to stowaway wif her!)

  9. i would love to win a Sturdibag. My pomeranian and I are planning a trip up to northern California and this would do great on our trip!

  11. oooo!! I'd like a sturdy bag!! I HATE HATE HATE my carrier! Rumblemum is going to a tropical paradise for a holiday, if we had one of these I KNOW she'd take me (and leave the kitten at home!hehhehheh)

  12. I would love to win won of these so I could take my dog with me to Pella, Iowa in a comfortable carrier. Thank you for the chance.

  13. I would love to with this to have the opportunity to travel with my dog in a safe way.... something that makes him feel like home.

  17. Madison loves to travel with mommy - weekend adventures or further away...

  18. Thank you for offering such a wonderful prize. I would like to win this in order to provide a safe means of transportation to my rescue Yorkies when we go do "Donation Dog" duties for the local shelters or when we are just out for a fun run to the local pet supply store. They even promise to let me use the carrier when I take a cat from our local kill shelter with me to a cat show in order to find that poor purrbaby a home. I think it will bring him/her good luck don't you?

  23. I love my Sturdi Car-Go Double. My cats Ralphie and Norton ride in it when we go to the park. I'd love to win a Sturdi carrier to use for flying or taking the cats to the vet.

  24. What an awesome give away! I'll be vacationing somewhere in October (destination undecided) and would love to bring my two Chihuahuas along. They would fit together perfectly in this! :)

  25. I am always a fan of contests and giveaways. Well My darling Chihuahua Diva is 20 weeks old and has never been out of the state of IOWA, and I am planning a trip to Washington D.C. in a month to visit my uncle and his twin boys, and I am also bringing my cute pup Diva.

    I have been searching everywhere for a good pet carrier, but the only ones I can find that would work good for her is either too big, or just not a good sturdy design.

    This bag is perfect. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it is stirdy, and airline approved. This would answer all my problems and all I would have left to do is pack.

    Thank you for the opportunity and may the best one win.

  27. HaPpiLy biRthDaY COSMO! How many years are you?

    Sure is a nice prize - WoW, I'd sure like to win that for mama! I need it to put mama in when I go places so she doesn't get obnoxious running all around on the back of my trike. She brokr the carrier we had, so we need a new one! :)

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a great prize! Best to you Cosmo, I hope your birthday wishes come true! XoX ~Andy

    DM me on Twitter @BadAndy_KityKat & I'll give you my email. Don't want to post it online. Thanks!

  28. I would use the carrier to take our cute cat on our trips to and from pet friendly cabins.


  29. We are planning a family trip to Orlando, Florida for two weeks in October.

    I am looking for the proper carrier for our little guy because I just cannot bear to be away from him for two week!

    The Sturdi Bag looks perfect and I love the fact that he can travel with me in the cabin. There is no way that he is going as cargo! I want to be with him the whole time.

    The flight is only a little over 2 hours so he should be fine.

    Thanks for the great recommendation. ~Pauline

  30. I would love to win this because I do take a few trips each year with at least one of my dogs. This would be great to keep them in the car safely at a rest stop since you can't take your dog to the bathroom with you. If you're not alone, you take shifts with the dog, obviously. I do plan to go visit my family in Greece again eventually and if I end up moving there I would certainly love to be able to take Daisy, one of my Chihuahuas, with me. Even if not used for air travel, I think this would be a lot better for traveling to the vet since it is not a cold, hard, plastic, unforgiving carrier.

  31. I would love to win this so I could bring my kitty back and forth to camp in comfort and not have to worry about her having enough room.

  32. this is a great carrier and just what I need for a cat

  33. Bonnie just a great carrier

  34. I fly to shows with my norwegian forestcat and russian blue... Bet they would love to travel inside such a comfy looking sturdi!

  35. This is the Business-Class for all pets - I truly think that every pet should have a Sturdi Bag! Your Cosmo is a VIP pet!

  36. I would love to win a sturdy bag! We are going to Helsinki in November and a Sturdy-bag be a would be a great way to travel with my American Hairless terrier, Rudy.

  37. I would love to win a Sturdibag. I take my growing puppy everywhere. He is trained to enter the bag on command and lay obediently in his carrier while I'm in class or at a store. He does it so well that I can smuggle him in and have him experience new places. with a Sturdibag, I can do more and he will be more comfortable on every day trips and long journeys

  38. I can see Walker in this SturdiBag already :-) I really need a new bag. My old one is very difficult to slide under a seat!!! Walker has envied this Sturdibag since he first saw Cosmo traveling in style.

  39. How big is Cosmo and how much does he weigh?
    Wondering if it would work for my pup...Thanks so much!

  40. I was looking for an affordable sturdybag size L for my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and came to this website. Too bad the give away was last year, because I could realy use one. I want to travel next month from the Netherlands to Spain and the sturdybag looks comfortable and lightweighted. Well, I have to look further.....:-(
