It is important you choose the right sized container for your pet to travel in. You need to ensure that your pet has enough space to turn about normally while standing, to be able to stand and sit erect, and to lie in a natural position. We can inform you on the correct size, we do however first need some sizes to determine this. We have suitable travel containers in stock, so you don't have to look any further.
First measure your pets length and height length as per illustration on the right. Length from tip of the nose to the root of the tail (A) Height whilst sitting erect, from the ground up to the top of his head or ears whichever is higher (B) Do this as precise as possible, to avoid the airline refusing your pet due to an unsuitable sized container. A rough indication of what container is applicable for which breed can be found in the "QUICK SCAN" .
Next to the size the construction needs to be in line with specific regulations.
These can be found in the IATA Live Animal Regulations , In short the container needs to be:
- Sturdy, waterproof, well ventilated
- Upper and lower shell screwed together (no click system)
- Metal bars door
- Door lock secure (no padlocks)
On the right an example of an accepted and not accepted travel container.
