Wicker Dog Bike Carriers


I’ve biked many miles with dogs along and, because of that, have high standards (and lots of opinions) about dog bike carriers. They need to be sturdy and well-made. They must attach securely to the bike and have some safety feature such as a wire top, to keep your dog from becoming airborne in an accident.

Below is the only wicker product that currently meets with my approval. Here’s why:

It has a cover. I know, I know – having your dog sitting up in front like Toto in the Wizard of Oz has charm but if you stop suddenly, tip over or your dog decides to leap at a squirrel the charm ends instantly. What you want is safety for your companion. A top gives you added that security.

Being a safety-conscious dog person, I harness/tether my dogs and use a cover.

Other promising products are not on this list because they have more than 10% low ratings. This is a red flag to me that causes me to read the low reviews. Inevitably, they point out serious safety issues: poor attachment to the bike or a flimsy basket. So here we are back at this handsome basket.

The lowest reviews often mention size-related issues. This basket is for a small dog – tiny toys around 6 pounds or under.
