How to Find the Best Fit: Select the carrier size based on your pet’s measurements first and then by your pet’s weight, making sure not to exceed the maximum weight limits. Also allow enough space for your pet to change positions while inside the carrier. Note: the carrier is designed for pets lying down, so your pet may not be able to stand.

How to Measure Your Pet: For pet’s length, start at the nape of the neck (where the collar falls) and measure to the base of the tail. For height, measure from the floor to the top of the shoulder.

FAQ

How Do I Know What Size Carrier Is Best For My Pet?

Please weigh and measure your pet carefully. The pet's length should be measured from the nape of the neck to the base of the tail. The pet's height should be measured when it is standing, from the floor to the shoulder. Please note, pets should have enough room to lie down comfortably but also stand up and turn around should they wish to change positions.

How Do I Fold My Carrier When Not In Use?

  • Remove the faux lambskin liner from the stability board
  • Detach the stability board from the carrier by pulling up the Velcro tabs on either end
  • Secure the faux lambskin liner back onto the stability board and move to the top of the carrier so the liner and board are beneath the U-shaped opening
  • Fold either end of the carrier down and underneath the liner and board
  • Store in a clean, dry place for future use

Does My Sherpa Carrier Push Down?

All Sherpa carriers are soft-sided and made with a patented spring wire frame in the rear of the bag. The spring wire frame allows the back end to be pushed down several inches to slide beneath the airline seat without restricting the pet's head room.

What Does Airline Approved Mean?

Airline Approved means that a carrier:

  • Provides adequate ventilation
  • Is leak-proof
  • Safely encloses the pet

What Does Guaranteed On Board® Mean?

Guaranteed On Board® is the only program that guarantees a Sherpa carrier meets an airline's specific rules and regulations and will be allowed on board. All small and medium Sherpa carriers are included in the GOB program. However, the medium size carrier is not Guaranteed On Board on ALL of the airlines included in the program.

Why Is My Airline Not Listed On The Guaranteed On Board Site?

Just because a particular airline is not included in the Guaranteed On Board program it does not mean your carrier will not be allowed on board, just that you will need to confirm directly with the airline. Please note, our carriers are soft-sided and made with a patented spring wire frame that allows the back end to be pushed down several inches to slide beneath the airline seat without restricting the pet's head room.

My Carrier Is Larger Than What The Airline Specifies As Being Permitted In-Cabin. Will It Be Allowed On Board?

Please check with airline directly. Some airlines allow carriers that are larger than the dimensions they specify if the carrier is soft-sided and pushes down. All Sherpa carriers are made with a patented spring wire frame in the rear of the bag which allows the end to be pushed down several inches to conform to the under seat dimensions without restricting the pet's head room or compromising the structural integrity of the bag.

I Cannot Find My Style / Size Carrier On The Drop-Down Menu On The Gob Form. Is It Allowed On Board My Airline?

No. If the style / size carrier you have is not included in a particular airline's GOB page it is not Guaranteed On Board that particular airline because its dimensions exceed what the airline specifies as being allowed on board.

    Perfect product

    By thatpoodlehazelnut on Mar 21, 2018

    Our toy poodle puppy is 3 pounds and this size seems best for her! We previously ordered the smaller version and it was way too tight. With this carrier, she has enough space to travel comfortably (turn around and stretch) and she is very happy to hang out in the carrier. We just returned from a trip and she was so calm and relaxed in the carrier that someone on the plane next to us had asked us if we had tranquilized her (we did NOT)! We would recommend this product to anyone with a small dog but space might be very tight if you have a dog above 8-10 pounds.

    A nice upgrade for my dog.

    By Ernieisajerk on Jan 29, 2018

    This was the first carrier I bought for my dog. He's a 5 lb. purebred chihuahua. He's a rescue and I have loved spoiling him. It's a little small, as he is longer and has a little muscle. I like that the material is washable and the carrier is convenient and can be folded up for storage. We travel around town to visit family and go shopping. I like that I can buckle it into the car with the seat belt strap and not worry about it moving. It's great quality and not too bulky.

    Just perfect

    By MyCatsaremykids on Nov 12, 2017

    I'd been looking for awhile for new carriers as my two cats are not kittens anymore. These are beautiful and really inexpensive compared to other retailers. The bottom has a faux Sherpa removable floor that goes in the washer for any necessary cleaning. The kitty is accessible from the front, side and the top a in the event of a problem. Best part is, they are approved for airline travel in the event I hit a huge jackpot someday and we get to go on vacation.

    Decent carrier, but...

    By calgal on Nov 11, 2017 top1000Contributor

    I had looked at all of the different carriers for my cat for an upcoming in cabin airline trip. This seemed like a very good carrier that fell within the size requirements of almost all the airlines. Unfortunately, when I received it, I did not realize that this DOES NOT come with a should carry strap. While a 13.5lb cat doesn't seem like much weight to be hand toting through airports, I can tell you that I definitely feel those 13.5lbs within a very short time. The Delta brand carrier seems like a perfect size carrier, but I was concerned that any other airline might poo-poo the carrier for not being THEIR brand and therefore not allow me to use it. Now I'm conflicted with keeping this I had looked at all of the different carriers for my cat for an upcoming in cabin airline trip.

Now I'm conflicted with keeping this Sherpa brand and trying to find a way to rig it up to accommodate a shoulder strap, or returning it. This is by no means Chewy's fault. It is totally mine for not reading "what's included" more thoroughly and getting all the different carriers I had looked at mixed up in my mind. If you have a very petite pet, you will probably love this, as long as you can tolerate hand carrying your furry loved one everywhere without the aid of a shoulder strap. For that purpose, I cannot recommend this carrier for the heftier pets, especially if you're someone a little "up there in age" like myself. … more

    Solid & Cute

    By Matilda on Dec 13, 2017

    This is a very nicely made carrier for our new kitten. It's really cute & seems to be sturdy. 4 of 5 stars because it doesn't have a shoulder strap and because the description says it's 17" when it's not quite 16".

    Light and durable, comfy and accepted on the airlines. Lots of ventilation and a little extra pocket to store things.

    Perfect Carrier for the Vet

    By Dorina on Nov 10, 2017

    The top entry worked perfectly for my cat. And what a relief not to have the hard plastic carrier bang against my leg. This sturdy canvas carrier is just right for me and my kitties.

    Great carrier

    By Eddie on Nov 9, 2017

    Bought this for my cat and she absolutely loves it. Nice that it folds away when not in use.

    Love this bag and so does my cat. It is the perfect size to fly with, which makes it that much better.
