Travel Kennels are subject to IATA standards (airline regulators). Many other travel boxes are refused by the carrying airline. It is advisable to browse the travel boxes illustrated here and compare them to the kennel you may already have. If you are not sure, or need further help please contact us. If you require us to acquire a suitable travel kennel on your behalf, please mention it in your email.

Below is a guide to the size of travel kennels, along with which breeds they are suitable for. Like you, we are concerned for your pet's safety and comfort during transportation. The airlines share this concern, and their regulations reflect it.

It is essential that your pet(s) travel in a crate of the correct size and type. Your pet must be able to stand, sit and turn around comfortably in the crate.

To measure your dog, follow this guide:

1. Gather your tools:
      Chalk or pencil
      Pen and paper
      Tape measure
      Ask an assistant for help.

  
2. Choose a wall where you can make your measurements. Check that the chalk or pencil marks will erase once you're done.

3. Place your dog next to the wall in a normal standing position by placing one hand under the chin and the other hand under the tummy. Give your dog a little tummy rub and some soft words so that he or she will relax and stand tall.

4. Ask your assistant to make the following marks on the wall behind the dog:
A: Top of the dog's head
B: Tip of the nose
C: Point where the tail meets the body.

5. Give your dog a pat and let him or her go. Measure from:
Chalk mark A to the floor for the dog's height
Chalk mark B to C for the dog's length

To measure your cat, follow this guide:

Most cats do not react well to being measured. To avoid undue stress to your pet, we recommend that you simply weigh your cat:

   1. Holding your cat, step onto your bathroom scale.
        Make a note of the total weight.
   2. Put your cat down and make a note of your own weight.
   3. Subtract your weight from the total weight in #1.
   4. Talk to your pet travel specialist about the correct size of carrier for your cat.

There is also a procedure for preparing your pets crate for travel - please seek advice.
