Original Deluxe Sherpa Soft-Sided Carrier Small, 10" W x 15" L x 8-1/2" H Color: Black
I have to admit that I was very worried about being able to get on the plane with this Extra Large Sherpa Carrier. It is lovely. Nice colors, sturdy. However, it is more than an inch too big for United's cutoff size and the guarantee doesn't apply. I could just see getting up to the counter in Florida with my new English Mastiff eight week old puppy en route to California and being turned down. The weight minimum is 22 lbs - that's carrier AND dog. Dog alone weighed 25 lbs! But here's how it went. I walked up to the check in counter and set her down on the floor, put my suitcase on the scales and handed her the health certificate. She never even looked at the carrier or the dog!! We were on! It couldn't have gone more smoothly all the way thru. The carrier just barely fit under the seat. So relieved.

Acceptable to most airlines for pet travel onboard.
Traveling with a pet is stressful at best, but this bag takes some of the worry away. Pet is safe, airlines like this bag and it is rugged enough to stand up to many trips.

A well deserved thumbs up
I am very happy with this carrier. I bought it to transport my pet on the airlines. Dr. Foster and Smith are reputable and efficient with my orders and arrive always with good time.

Carrier fit the bill
I used the large Sherpa carrier for my 19-pound pug during my previous flight from Dallas to Los Angeles. It worked beautifully for him and he was even able to turn around in it. The carrier fit easily under the seat of the American Airline's plane. I can't comment whether the large size will work on all airlines, but it worked for my needs. I highly recomment this bag and Drs. Foster and Smith offered the best online price.
