For this project my goal was to aid users who needed to travel with or transport pets within an urban environment. This is difficult to do because most methods of public transportation have restrictions on travelling with pets and taxi drivers do not like having pets in their cabs. Through research I found that most difficulties in travelling with pets arise out of the defensive behavior of other people based on the perceived threat of dogs to their comfort or convenience. If the owner can take preventative measures that not only modify the behavior of the dog but also the perception of other people (how that person perceives the ability and likelihood of the dog to misbehave) then the problem can be solved. The result of this design exploration was my dog carrier which I created to contain and protect the dog while still being stylish and comfortable for the user.
