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.

Questions & Answers

40 Customer Questions

How much room do the wheels take? What is the inside dimension for the height of the dog?
Answer by ChewyNov 01, 2017
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.

What is the length inside (how long is it inside)
Answer by ChewyNov 08, 2017
The Sherpa Ultimate on Wheels Pet Carrier is 12.25 inches long. It's recommended for pets 19 inches in length, 9.5 inches in height and up to 22 pounds.

Can I fit 2 hairless cats in one carrier? They weigh about 9 lbs each
Answer by ChewyDec 08, 2017
For safety reasons we recommend each pet in a separate Carrier. This Carrier measures 20 x 12.25 x 10.5 inches and is recommended for pets up to 22 pounds.

How many wheels does it have?
Answer by ChewyJul 10, 2017
This carrier has 4 wheels for easy-glide motion.

Smooth Ride

This carrier was perfect for air travel. My dog is a 9 pound chihuahua. There wasn’t much room for her to stand up when it was completely zipped. The carrier measures about 9 inches tall and then another inch on the bottom for the wheels. It was very convenient to have the wheels and it made transporting her through the airport easy. No problems fitting the carrier under the airplane seat (Allegiant). If you have a small, short dog this carrier is perfect. If you have a little taller dog, you may want to opt for a carrier without the wheels and take that extra room for carrier space. I kept it unzipped when we were walking in the airport. I zipped it fully when we were onboard the aircraft. My Peanut was quite the star in the airport terminals!

Love this!

This is our second Sherpa Ultimate on Wheels cat carrier, although we bought our first one on a different river-size company. We had our first one for several years before we decided to replace it. We love this carrier for taking our cats to the vet. We take them at the same time. Our girl is only 7 pounds, but her brother is 15 pounds, so it’s easier having wheels when taking them in. Everyone comments on how much they love it, especially the vets and techs, so when they have to take the two to the back, they don’t have to carry them. It’s expensive but worth what it saves for your back.

Sherpa pet carrier

I have used my Sherpa twice before this incident today on the way to the airport. My dog was able to pop his head up, which intern broke the zippers on each side of the top flat and I was unable to close the top. I was on my way to the airport and ended up canceling my flight because I couldn’t get a pet carrier formy dog in time.

Works great

Plenty of room for our 16 lb Schnoodle, laying down. Luckily, flight crew allowed his head to pop up. Would have liked an expandable handle.

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.

Cats love it

My cats have been napping in it. On the one trip to the vet I made so far it worked fine

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.
