Find A Dog Travel Crate In Our Gallery
Once you have a dog travel crate you'll find it extremely useful for so many occasions that you'll wonder how you ever got along without one. Aside from the obvious need for one to travel by car or on an airline, a dog travel crate can serve mutiple purposes.
Take for instance transporting a dog to the vet, which can be very traumatic for a pet - especially one that is experiencing some level of distress.
As a rule, dogs adapt to crates very easily because they provide a feeling of security, reminiscent of the dens they built for themselves when they were in the wild. They also become a place of refuge when things get hectic, as well as just a cozy place to take a nap.
So it's easy to understand that a dog, accustomed to popping into a crate around the home, will be less fearful traveling in one to the vet, the groomer, on a road trip, on a plane etc.
On this page you will find airline approved dog crates as well as multi purpose pet carriers
to consider when traveling by air, by car, around town, for your dog's hang out in the home, or for the specific
purpose of crate training.
Dog Travel Crate - Airline Approved
At time of writing, the following twelve crates were listed as airline approved. That being said, it is always wise to double check with the airlines when your
dog is flying with you just to make sure the regulations haven't been changed.
For your convenience we have included a video further down the page that tells how to prepare crates to meet airline regulations.
When sizing for your dog, measure him standing upright to the top of his head. You want to make sure that he can stand up without touching the top of the crate and also lie down comfortably.
