If you own a pet and like to take him/her with you on a traveling trip either by car or by airplane, the Sherpa Original Deluxe Carriers is just the right accessory you need to get the job done. These carriers are made with ventilation panels, so your pet gets lots of air and won’t get hot and are “guaranteed on board airline approved” on most domestic airlines.

It also has pockets to store some items for you as well. When traveling with your pet, you must ensure their safety and they will not escape out of the carrier. These carriers will provide that for your pet.

However, it is recommended that you let your pet become familiar with the carrier before you begin to put them on an airline or travel in your car with it. This means you will need to do some carrier training before leaving on your trip.

The carriers come in six colors and three sizes to choose from. You should be able to find one that you like and fits your pet.

Carrier Pet Training

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 or more in advance to allow your pet sufficient time to become accustomed to it. Here are some steps you can take to help your pet get comfortable with the carrier:

  • Purchase the correct size carrier for your pet based on their size and weight at least one month before the departure date.
  • Place the carrier in an open area.
  • Let your pet investigate the carrier and get used to the scent and shape.
  • Place one of their favorite toys, treats, or blanket in the carrier to help entice them to enter into it on their own willingly without you forcing them into it.
  • Once they are comfortable going into the carrier on their own, take your pet on short trips in the carrier so they get used to being transported in it.
  • If the pet shows signs of not liking being inside or tries to escape from the carrier, it recommended that further training be done before going on the long car or plane trip.
  • Have some treats on hand when your pet displays the proper behavior during the training sessions.

  • Leads do not need to be used when traveling in the carrier.
  • Be sure carrier is properly fastened with the seat belt in the backseat of the car before departing.
  • Ensure your pet’s collar is secure and clearly displays proof of current vaccinations, your name, address and contact information.

  • Complete and print your Guaranteed On-Board forms or contact the airlines for specific requirements.
  • Research the cities destination on pet rules & regulations and with the hotel or place you will be staying.
  • Make an appointment with your vet to acquire a health certificate and be sure they are up to date with shots no more than 10 days prior to departure.
  • Make a list of local vets in the place where you will be staying in case of an emergency.
  • Prior to leaving, either by car or plane, have your entire pet’s documentation in order.
  • Remember to bring your pet’s health certificate and Guaranteed on Board forms to show the gate agent.
  • Pack all of the necessary things in advance to ensure nothing is forgotten.
  • Plan ahead and know the various locations at the airport(s) where your pet can relieve itself prior to and between flying.

We highly recommend that your pet be potty trained first before they are going to be placed in the carrier for travel.
