Nice crate, but my dog broke the zipper the first time we tried to use it for flying. She was fine with it until, I had to place her underneath the seat on the airplane. Then she broke the zipper. I won’t be taking her on an airplane again, she was just too stressed. But if anyone is reading this, there needs to be a way to give pets treats without opening zippers. Once I’d open the zipper just a little, she would start pushing against that spot and then it would be difficult to close and make sure not to catch her hair. My cat is using it as a hide out now!
My cat ripped a hole in the cheap, flimsy netting and escaped within the first 15 minutes in the carrier. Chaos ensued.
Took my cat to the vet this am after buying this Sherpa cat carrier. I really like this cat carrier; it is lightweight with a sturdy handle, and easy clean up after returning home. When not traveling, I put the carrier on the floor, and my cat can enjoy a nap inside.
It was just what I needed to transport my cat. It help up to the test and will be using it over and over again.
The case is a nice size for my 7 lb toy poodle and I usually fly Delta so this seemed like a good choice. I took my first flight using this last week and on the return flight last night I saw that the zipper had already broken. Most of the time I used this carrier the dog wasn't even in it (e.g., at the gate waiting area, I had her on my lap; at security I carried her through). Knowing that this item was to be used for a live animal who would be moving around within it, I believe the design is defective if the zipper would break on the first trip - making it completely un-usable. Also, since your pet counts as your carry-on bag when you fly, it would be much more useful if it had a bit more storage or pockets to put necessities in. Note: This is a negative review about the product, not Chewy. The customer rep that I spoke with was great.
The medium size was perfect for our 12 pound Bichon on a recent Delta flight. No problems checking in. Enough space to lie down and turn around. The shoulder strap was especially useful as it leaves your hands free and the soft top made it easy to push it down a little to make it fit under the seat. Good buy.
Like the size and the soft pad inside the carrier. Durable and easy to use. It’s great that you can open from the top.
This might be good if your cat is calm, however mine used his nails to break out of the mesh on the side mid-flight. It should NOT be this fragile if it’s meant for air travel.
I have 2 siamese cats that I take to visit my parents, it's about a 3 hour car ride. It's spacious for the both of them since they're a small breed but they tore right through the cheap material and stiches around the front opening. My girl cat even got the top zipper open and got out while I was driving. This isn't a good product for a mischievous pet.
This tote was the right size for my 5 pound puppy with some room left for his growth. He can see out most every side and the Sherpa mat in the bottom adds comfort and is washable in case of accidents. The price was great, it arrived quickly and the quality is very good.
