Sherpa Pet Carrier - Original Deluxe
The Sherpa Pet Trading Company was the first company to design an approved pet carrier that strictly adhered to airline standards for in-cabin travel. Today, they remain one of the best pet carriers on the market.
This carrier will keep your pet comfortable, safe, and secure during both auto and airline travel. Stylish while still being practical. The Sherpa Original Deluxe will give you and your pet many happy years of traveling together.
Airline Approved Carrier for In-Cabin Travel
The small and medium sizes allow for airline cabin travel and are backed by the Sherpa Guaranteed On Board Program. For pet travelers flying on American, United, Delta, AirTran, Southwest, Alaska Airlines and Northwest Airlines, this program will guarantee that your pet will be able to board the cabin of the aircraft as long as your Sherpa carrier is the appropriate size for your pet.
Available in 3 sizes.
Made of durable quilted nylon with leather and vinyl trim.
The sides of the pet carrier open to give your pet plenty of fresh air. You can put your pet into its carrier from generously sized top or side zippered entries.
Comes with a full shoulder strap and the inside bottom has a removable and washable sheepskin liner that serves as your pet’s bed away from home.
Zippered side pocket for your pet's toys and treats.

Recommendations for Pets that Get Nervous or Excited During Travel
If your pet gets nervous or excited when traveling, we have several recommendations for you:
- For pets who can experience an accident in their carrier because they are nervous, elderly or ill, we recommend our smallest size pet pads (click here) which will fit perfectly into Sherpa carriers. These pet carrier pads will keep your pet dry and comfortable during travel. TIP: Layer several of them in the carrier so you can quickly remove the soiled pad and a fresh pad will be ready to go.
- For pets that get upset or overly stimulated when traveling, we recommend all natural pet calmers for dogs or cats. These all natural treats can take the edge off of nervous or hyperactive pets.
If you have any questions, please contact us toll free at 877-241-0184 or email us at email@example.com prior to placing your order.
Return/Exchange Policy For Sherpa Pet Carriers
Due to State Health Laws, we will not accept the return of any Sherpa bag after a pet has been inside the bag – No exceptions.
If your pet has not been inside the carrier, it may be returned for exchange as a sale item.
