ST. MORITZ DOG CARRIER
We are truly sorry for the dreadful iphone images, we are waiting on the studio appointment for professional images on all of our AW|19 faux fur collections.
Our stunning luxurious St. Moritz Dog Carrier is inspired by our little dachshund and the birth place of Winter Sports St. Moritz, the most beautiful and famous ski resort in the world. St. Moritz in Switzerland that has hosted 2 Winter Olympics and the home of the Cartier Polo Cup and Cresta Run and without a doubt the leading ski resort in the world today.
St. Moritz dog carrier is not only beautifully stylish it is handmade in our exclusive luxurious Midnight Blue Faux Fur which looks and feels like an Artic fox. Luxuriously warm faux fur dog carriers double up as portable dog beds for small dog breeds whether they are on short shopping journeys or weekend escapes and especially inviting for your little dog as they feel safe and warm inside making snooze time easy for both you and your little one.
Our exclusive Midnight blue faux fur is British made and circular knitted in 80% acrylic & 20% polyester and dyed in the most gorgeous shades of dark Midnight with natural black tones. We have added an internal fully adjustable securing strap with nickel plated solid brass hardware to attach to your dog's collar inside the dog carrier. The base of the St. Moritz dog carrier is covered in a waterproof fabric and the inside removable base pad is made in the Midnight faux fur which makes a cosy little dog cushion when taken out if you are out with friends and your dog doesn't want to stay inside the bed. And for those vital important dog walk essentials we have added a handy little internal zipped pocket to the inside.
Small Breeds, City Living and Long Journeys
We share our lives with a Scottish born miniature wire hair dachshund, and have lived a lifetime with large breed dogs who would not thank you for putting coats on them to keep warm mid winter and so getting used to a dachshund was fun. They are determined and stubborn, our dachshund will naturally wander off hunting out scents and will dig like his life depends on it if he thinks something is below ground, they are very sturdy and courageous dogs. His little bunny hops, bushy eyebrows and beard are comical and all part of his persona and especially enjoys having a game of hide and sniff in a bush and we can be often found talking into bushes for no apparent reason to a passerby (sometimes this takes a little explaining!) However there ends his yearning to get outside and explore when it it is raining and there is no way his little paws will go out in sleet or snow. Not all dachshunds are like Finnbar and certainly If I was sitting next to a Border Terrier owner they would laugh at me, there would be no way a Border, Norfolk, Cairn would even dip their terrier paws into a Dog Carrier knowingly. We learn our dog breed types with patience, love and care and if like us you share your world with a little one that prefers to be dry, warm and carried in dark, rainy busy streets then a dog carrier is the perfect solution to both of you.
The Hugo & Otto St. Mortiz Dog Carrier is truly a luxury and beautiful carrier and heaven sent for your little companion.

Everyday Good looking Care:
- Shake out your St. Moritz dog carrier regularly to find those precious hidden doggy treats and use a soft hair brush to gently brush out the faux fur fabric.
- Muddy marks: Please let them dry, brush them out and gently spot clean with warm water, once dry re-plump, brush again and store in a dry place.
- Storing: Pad the inside of the dog carrier with clean dry paper or bubble wrap. Please treat your dog carrier as you would a treasured handbag.
- Please do not store heavy items on top of the carrier as it will miss shape the carrier
Our recommendation is to dry clean your Hugo & Otto St. Moritz Dog Carrier to retain the shape.
If you prefer to machine wash:
Faux fur is a luxury manmade product and washable on a gentle care cool wool wash.
Please do not wring out it will miss-shape the bag.
Shake out the dog carrier, reshape and dry naturally on a rack.
Shake again, re-shape and brush out gently.
Please do not dry the dog carrier in a machine dryer.
General safety thoughts whilst travelling:
Faux fur will get warm inside it has great insulating capabilities and so do please think, if you have been inside and in the warmth for some time your little dog also has their own natural full length fur coat with no means to cool down or tell you apart from panting. Please do check on long journeys that your dog is comfortable, has means to cool down and has water to drink. Do not tip the bag whist bending down.
Please also consider your own safety when picking up your dog inside the carrier and carrying on long journeys, we have recommended weights for the small and small/medium carrier as guidelines.
Do not leave or store near to naked flames.
The internal adjustable securing strap:
We have used British made strong 1" polyester strapping with British nickel plated solid metal hardware to attach the strap to your dog's collar and adjust the length. The strapping is sewn into the base of the dog carrier, it will not prevent them from falling out if the dog bag is tipped up. Please note that the Zhivago Dog Carrier is not a safety approved travel container for dogs inside aeroplanes and cars. It is not crash tested nor does it require the testing. They have no safety mechanism to be strapped into car seats and we do not recommend you do so.
