Default Sling style carriers

Wanted to try to get some feedback on sling style carriers. There are times I'd really like to bring Tyler along without him in a bag and was wondering about the slings. Anyone have them? Like/dislike them and why? I'm also very short 5'1" and worry they may hang down too far because of that. I saw some on ETSY that were cute and not crazy expensive. And you know me, I'm not a fan of crazy expensive ...I'd rather use the money for rescues.

I actually got the Susan Lanci carrier
Cuddle Carrier by Susan Lanci Black | Designer Dog Purses at Glamourmutt.com
I really like it. I'm also short (5'1) so I know what you mean, but it is adjustable and she does pretty well in there. It is actually on sale today for Cyber Monday, but it's $108 regular priced, so that may be too much.

I use a baby sling I got for $6 from a kids resell store LOL When she was a little puppy I put a blanket in the bottom to be like a "pillow" and boost her up.

I've been using it a lot the last few weeks with Grace in heat... she is wanting extra cuddles.

Sue, I have 2--one is the Susan Lanci I won in this yrs. rescue raffle---it is the BMW of carriers---very nice! I have a Trixie (European one) that I love in cloth---it was a bit "dear" as well, but has worked for Kitzi & Lisi (not together)---so now DH & I can both carry one each. I have a "purse" but it isn't as comfy for the pups---I love the slings. I am not very tall either so that can be an issue. Some have adjustable straps.
The Susan Lanci one has a very warm, kushlie interior--the other one is more of a summer sling. Kitzi has taken over the Lanci one---he snuggles down inside all comfy! I went for the "fawn" color so DH would feel good carrying it too!

It's a little unconventional, but my friend uses a '31' bag. She has a Malt x Poodle so Chloe is a little bigger than Tyler. I've watched her load up in the tote bag, she loves it. I'll ask her if she has a picture to share.

I once saw a woman who had one, it was red, she had it adjusted almost up to her neck. Seems like it was a nylon material. I have spine issues, and this was so high up it might not hurt. Sorry I can't be more specific, it was 3 years ago. Does anybody know what I'm talking about? Oh, she had a rescued Maltese in it.

Sue, I bought one at Nationals this year and love it! Truffles fits very nicely and loves riding around in it. It was from Outward Hound.

I also have the Susan Lanci cuddle carrier in leopard Sue. Use it for Penny. I really like it soft and cosy and easy to wear. On a side note I always thought I was 5'1" but recently found out I was 5'2" LOL. Maybe you should check

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. I really didn't want to spend as much as the Lanci carrier but I'll check all out. I did see some very cute and reasonable ones on Etsy. I'm going to try to try some out in the pet boutiques near me. So funny but tonight while I was at Winter's Eve, a big holiday celebration running from Lincoln Center to the Time Warner Center I thought people were nuts to bring dogs and kids in strollers. It was SOOO congested with people trying to get to food tasting tents. I got on one line and there was a woman in front of me with a dog in a sling. It was a rather large poodle but she had a Fundle carrier and liked it a lot. She said I would need a small. What were chances that on the day I posted this that someone would have their dog in one in front of me?

Thanks everyone. I'll have to do some exploring and see if I can try some out at the boutiques here in NYC. I did see some very cute reasonable ones on Ebay. Never thought of looking at a baby carrier but that might work too. Funny but at a night time event I went to tonight a woman in front of me had her rather large poodle in a Fundle. She liked it a lot. Hers was a large. Great ideas
