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.
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.
I liked this carrier at first, but I've found that it's a lot better for trips to the vet than traveling. As someone else mentioned, the bottom isn't totally stable, so it sags and the pad inside moves around. It also has no absorption, so if your pet tends to pee in their carrier while traveling, it will go through the carrier and cause a big mess. My cat technically fit the size requirements for the carrier, but it still seemed small for her. This size is probably best for kittens and tiny dogs. Overall, I think you can find better for the price, especially if you're buying it for airplane travel.
We needed a travel bag to carry our six pound toy poodle on the plane. This bag is perfect size. Other bags were too long or too small. This bags length is about two or three inches shorter in length than other bags and should fit nicely under the seat on the plane. Be sure to get your travel bag as soon as possible so your pet can get use to it before you travel.
During the trip these bags were folding according to the weight of the cats, when they hang on the shoulder, and even on top of the suitcase, they still break and slide! I really regret that I got these pet carriers. I had better soft pet carriers, than this, also with better price.
This is good size. Nice bag. My dog loves it, he is 4.5 lbs yorkie and has plenty of room. One end is stable and good other end is a little floppy but still a great bag and great price.
The Sherpa To-Go is the perfect size for the aircraft we are flying. It fits perfectly under the seat. Most carriers were too big. This was the only one that fit (Airbus 330-300). Our cat is quite comfortable in it. I would recommend to anyone with small cats or dogs.
I ordered this for a flight, and it was perfect. The bottom is soft and cushioned and it fit perfectly under the seat on the plane. It zips on top and on the end, so I was able to unzip the top a little and pet my dog when she got nervous during the flight.
It was time for an upgrade after using the same hard sided carrier for decades. I wanted a soft sided carrier that provided security and comfort. The construction quality is great and I like the mesh windows that provide privacy and good air circulation. I’m very happy with this purchase. It’s a perfect fit for my 5 lb kitty. Shipping was unbelievably quick.
I would like to know how to return this carrier because it is too small for anything but a kitten and I have a full grown cat. Your website isn't real clear about how to return an item.
This cat carrier has worked really good on taking my many rescue cats to the vet. The cats seem comfortable and not as stressed.
It is very good quality but when I purchased it, I judged the size I need by the weight and not the dog breed. It was way too small for what I needed.
