About Sherpa Travel Pet Carriers

Sherpa Travel Pet Carriers

Sherpa Travel Carriers are airline-approved carriers that let your pet travel comfortably on the go, in the car or on walks. They are easy to use and durable enough to keep your pet safely contained and protected.

Fits Under Most Airline Seats

Sherpa Carriers with a built-in spring-wire frame allow you to push down the rear side of the carrier several inches. This helps them fit under most airline seats in compliance with airline requirements and FAA regulations. The flexible design makes the carrier in-cabin friendly and airline approved for most airlines.

Fly With Peace of Mind

Sherpa worked with major airlines to make a carrier that is Guaranteed On Board. Sherpa’s Guaranteed On Board program provides you the information you need for future travels with your pet and added assurance that your carrier will be allowed to fly.

Sherpa Makes Travel Easy

Sherpa Carriers feature mesh panels for ventilation, top and side entries, locking zippers for added safety and a seatbelt safety strap.

Today, they continue to innovate to make traveling secure and comfortable for every pet – every day and on every trip. Whether you’re going around the block, across town or on a flight around the world, Sherpa products will help you travel with peace of mind.

Light Weight and works

Excellent choice for me. The unit is strong but light weight. The handles work well, but the shoulder strap is nice when your hands are full. My cat weighs about 11 pounds and fits perfectly. When I first received the carrier I left it out and open so my pet would get used to it. She liked it so well she used it to nap in. Good choice, I recommend it.

10/10 Would Recommend!

I was nervous flying with my dog for the first time because the requirements are so vague online, but everything went perfectly with this carrier! I purchased the large size and it fit perfectly under the seat on my Delta flight in November 2022. My dog is 21 lbs and I was a little worried she would be too big, but was she was able to fit (not exactly comfortably!) and we made it work for the 3 hour flight plus several hours in the airport. Would def recommend this large carrier for flights!

Excellent carrier.

Excellent carrier. My Tigger loves it! He actually goes in to chill out whenever it's open, even when he is not going for a vet visit!

Sturdy and flexible!

I bought this for a move over 1,000 miles. I was traveling with two very large dogs and my large cat. We drove for 3 days and stayed in 2 hotels. Catman was comfortable and felt safe. I read several reviews about cats ripping apart carriers, which was a huge concern. No problems with this at all. This carrier is built to last.

An excellent carrier that is easy to handle.

My kitty fits easily into carrier & the fact that it opens both from top & the front make it easy to get him inside. The fact that it has mesh on one end & the sides assist him in being less afraid because he can see out & doesn't feel shut in.

Great Carrier

This cat carrier is just perfect! I purchased the medium sized one first but my cat is very long and thin so the length wasn’t quite long enough for her. I did order the size large after talking with a wonderful woman working at Chewy and she said she would put my order in for the larger one, but my cat did volunteer to go inside the medium carrier by herself, I ended up keeping that one for being her little special space so she can go inside whenever she wants to. My kitty gets very nervous whenever she has to go to the vet, so having a comfortable carrier to take her in will make all the difference! The carrier is gray and has a sheep-like cloth lining on the bottom. It can be opened from the top and at one end of the carrier, and it has a mesh screen on both sides and the end of the carrier that opens which gives her a reassuring view out on 3 sides! And the see-through effect creates a very airy experience that I know will help keep her calm.

Small dog, medium cat carrier

Easy to get a cat in and out. Feels very stable and easily cleaned. My cat really likes the Serpa mat.
