About Sherpa Pet Carriers

Original Deluxe Pet Carrier

The Original Deluxe Pet Carrier is an airline-approved carrier that lets your pet travel comfortably whether you are on the go, in your car, or taking a walk. It is easy to use and durable enough to keep your pet contained and protected.

Guaranteed on Board

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

Fits Under Most Airline Seats

The spring-wire frame allows the rear side of the carrier to be pushed down several inches so that it can fit under most airline seats in compliance with airline requirements and FAA regulations. This makes the carrier in-cabin-friendly and airline-approved for most airlines.

About Sherpa

In 1989, Sherpa introduced their first soft-sided carriers so pets could fly in-cabin. 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.

Very Poorly Designed

I bought this sling for my fast-growing puppy, because its recommended maximum weight seemed to be the highest out of all comparable products, but I'm now really wishing that I hadn't. The bag's main compartment isn't very tall but is extremely wide and, with no way of closing or cinching its opening, it becomes very easy for any animal being carried within it to move about freely and tumble out, choking themselves with a tether that's way too long, even when doubled up. On top of this, the non-technical jersey material feels cheap and flimsy; the way the bag's length is adjusted ensures that there will always be several feet of lose, dangling fabric; and the "flexible base panel" that was supposedly included to help the bag keep its shape was not properly secured and moves around throughout the length of the bag. I fail to understand how these things, along with a very basic and impractical patch pocket, enable the company that makes this to justify its price. I would definitely not recommend it to anyone other than a pet-less person looking for a basic fashion accessory.

Does not support dog

This is worthless. The fabric is too stretchy and the supportive base is a free floating flimsy piece of cardboard. Do not buy it.

what a bummer

This thing is huge and my dog hates it. I’m not sure why chewy has this listed as an ok product for xs breeds. (It’s definitely well made)

Comfy Sling

Our older Min Pin has developed weak and wobbly back legs and she loves going on walks. So, after walking on her own for a while she goes into the sling and settles in nice and comfy and enjoys being close.

Did not work for us.

Slide could not be secured. Slide while walking.
