Airline Pet Carriers - When travelling via plane, every airline has its own particulars and necessities to ensure that the pets travels securely and comfortably among other passengers. Airline carriers are of two types: For small pets in the cabin & For large-sized pets in the cargo.

For puppies and kitten in the cabin, the general guidelines are that the carrier must fit underneath the sit in the front of the passenger and it must have a waterproof base. The carrier needs to be large and comfortable enough for the pet to stand up, lie down, and turn around during the journey. Moreover, the carrier must be ventilated from at least three sides.

For large-sized pets like adult dogs, there's a need of carrier with a metal door - that is strong enough to prevent the pet from escaping. Again, this one should be well ventilated and have enough space for the dog to sit, stand, and turn around.

What is the best carrier-type for my pet?

If you intend to fly, airlines have strict guidelines for pet bearers. There are the size and build-quality guidelines, and mostly hard-sided carriers are recommended.

How to measure my pet’s size for the traveling carrier?

You need to know your pet’s height, length, and weight to choose the right-sized carrier. The carrier should be spacious enough for him to stand up, sit down, turn around or loosen up when resting. Here’s how to measure your pet’s size:

  • Measure his back from the neck, where the collar sits, to the base of the tail. Then add a couple of inches to that estimation.

  • Measure shoulder range from the highest point of the shoulders to the ground.

  • For soft-sided carriers, add 2 to 3 inches to shoulder height.

  • For hard-sided transporters, add three-to-five inches.

  • Wearable carriers, like backpacks and purses, are intended to be cozy and comfortable; the pet is supported against your body, not by the carrier itself.

Manufacturers usually list size and weight limits for carriers, and if your dog or cat is between those sizes, pick the bigger size that is probably 2 to 3 inches more than your pet’s size.
