If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, check with your vet if your pet is suited for transport in its current condition.
Be sure to purchase the correct size of carrier appropriate for the weight of your pet. Using a carrier that is too large could result in motion sickness. Your pet should have enough room to stand up and turn around inside the carrier.
Prior to traveling make sure to allow ample time for your pet to familiarize itself with its carrier. We recommend purchasing a carrier at least a month in advance to allow your pet sufficient time to become accustomed to it.
Put the carrier in an open area so the pet can investigate and get used to its scent and shape. Put one of your pet's toys, treats or blankets inside the carrier to entice your pet to enter it willingly. Do not force your pet inside the carrier. Take your pet on short trips in the carrier so they get used to being transported in it. If your pet does not like being inside, or tries to escape from the carrier, we recommend further training prior to travel or considering transporting your animal in a hard-sided carrier.
The Sherpa Original Deluxe Pet Carrier is stylish, lightweight, and conforms with commercial airline carry-on specifications. It features a durable quilted nylon construction, mesh panels for ventilation, and two convenient entries: front and top. Its seat belt safety strap fits conveniently over upright luggage handles. The faux lambskin liner is machine washable and the carrier is to be spot cleaned only. All Sherpa carriers are protected by a one-year limited warranty against manufacturer defects.
