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.

How much room do the wheels take? What is the inside dimension for the height of the dog?

The front wheels are 2 inches high and the interior height of the carrier is slightly over 9 inches in height. However, the carrier is designed to have the base dip down to increase the interior room for the pet.

cat carrier

My old cat carrier was on wheels, very heavy and front entry. I needed something lighter on wheels with top entry as my cat has a back problem. This carrier works great! It is lighter than my old one, rolls easier and the top entry was MUCH better for my cat. Thank you.

Flew Southwest worked great

This rolling carrier worked really well. It was roomy but small enough to fit under the seat in front but I had to maneuver it in and out. 12# cat able to turn around. Very happy with the purchase. Flag needs to be changed to bright orange or yellow. My 10 year old granddaughter made me a brighter replacement.

Love this travel bag

This bag helped me big time when I took my cat with me on Southwest Airlines. It can fit a small/medium size cat easily and has enough room for the cat to stretch legs once seated. The bag is airline compatible. The only downside is some cats may not be able to stand once inside the bag.

Pipers Wheels

My 10yr old yorkie loves this carrier. She is blind and you can tell she feels comfortable and safe in this carrier. Fits perfect under front airline seats. Wheels are very well made, easy to move around in the busy Airport. Recently traveled with 2yr old grandson and he had no problem pulling this carrier through the airport. People were amazed how easy it was for him to take his favorite pet alone for the ride.

light yet sturdy

I am unable to use a bulky, heavy carrier to get my cat into the vet. This is perfect! Rolls easily. light weight and sturdy.

very pleased

Both my cat and I like this carrier very much. Pulls very easy and great for anyone like me with back problems. My cat is 13 pounds and has plenty of room.

Poor construction/Faulty zipper

My first use of this carrier was very disappointing. My pet was small enough to easily fit inside the carrier. However the zipper broker on my first airline trip and cannot be repaired. I would not recommend this product to anyone!

Sherpa Ultimate on Wheels

I chose this carrier for the ease of wheeling my cats from car to vet center. I am 75 and carrying the prior heavy plastic carrier I have had for 20 years was becoming difficult. This carrier met all my needs and my cats are comfortable and not jostled around while wheeling or in transit. I place a small towel over the Sherpa for extra protection. My cats like laying down as that is how they normally travel. I would suggest that you tie the carrier down for stability if you place it in the back of an SUV as the wheels give your cat an extra ride which I don’t think is appreciated.

New carrier ordered

I ordered the pet carrier for my cats. It’s a large and I really needed an extra large for one of my cats. Don’t get me wrong I do like the carrier very much.

Lightweight and Sturdy

This carrier is lightweight, sturdy, and easy to maneuver. My cat likes to sleep in it even when we're not going anywhere.
