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.

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.
First time flying with our cat, George, had me pretty nervous, but this carrier made it a breeze! Being airline approved left one less thing to worry about. And on top of that— he loves his carrier! He sits it in all the time at home. And he hasn’t been the biggest fan of other carriers we’ve used in the past for car rides. He was cozy all flight long in this carrier, and I was comforted knowing he had plenty of space. Highly recommend!
I used the Pet Carrier Sherpa bag to bring my new puppy home. The airports were crowded the plane was crowded but I was able to keep my puppy safe and secure in this carrier. I have a small puppy but I am very glad I ordered the bag in Medium. The airline had no problem with me bringing the bag on board. The bag is well ventilated, easy to wipe clean, and well made.
This is excellent! However, sizing is off. It's very small in according to the order form measurements. So glad I ordered a medium. My poodle weighes 5-6# but I ordered a medium even thought the scale showed small. She would not have been able to fit in the small.
I did a lot of research on pet carriers, and I am grateful and confident I choose the best. I can strap his carrier to my rolling suitcase making it easy to maneuver him around the airport. I like access to both side and top openings and the mesh view makes it easy for him to know I am nearby.
