"Approved for Use on Most Major Airlines" VS. "Guaranteed on Board"

Please note, only the Small and Medium Original Deluxe are Guaranteed On Board®. The Large Original Deluxe is approved for use on most major domestic airlines. What’s the difference?

Approved for use on Major Airlines means that a carrier:

  • Provides adequate ventilation
  • Is leak-proof
  • Safely encloses the pet
  • Conforms to underseat dimensions

Most pet carriers and all Sherpa® carriers are airline approved, however ONLY Sherpa® carriers are Guaranteed On Board®.

Guaranteed On Board® is the only program that guarantees a Sherpa® carrier meets an airline's specific rules and regulations and will be allowed on board. All small and medium Sherpa® carriers are included in the GOB program.

  • Go to www.flygob.com
  • Select the participating airline
  • Enter the flight info, carrier info and pet info
  • Print and sign the forms and present when boarding

Should the passenger be denied due to the Sherpa® carrier, Quaker Pet Group will reimburse the pet parent for ticket and pet fee--guaranteed!

Questions to ask before traveling with your pet:

  • Is my pet too old or young to handle the stress of traveling?
  • Is my pet in poor health?
  • Is my pet recovering from surgery or a traumatic event?
  • Is my pet pregnant?
  • Does my pet get motion sickness?

If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, check with your vet if your pet is suited for transport in its current condition.

Prep your pet:

Be sure to purchase the correct size of carrier appropriate for the weight of your pet. Using a carrier that is too large could result in motion sickness. Your pet should have enough room to stand up and turn around inside the carrier.

Prior to traveling make sure to allow ample time for your pet to familiarize itself with its carrier. We recommend purchasing a carrier at least a month in advance to allow your pet sufficient time to become accustomed to it.

Put the carrier in an open area so the pet can investigate and get used to its scent and shape. Put one of your pet's toys, treats or blankets inside the carrier to entice your pet to enter it willingly. Do not force your pet inside the carrier. Take your pet on short trips in the carrier so they get used to being transported in it. If your pet does not like being inside, or tries to escape from the carrier, we recommend further training prior to travel or considering transporting your animal in a hard-sided carrier.

Traveling by Plane

  • Always check your airline's rules and regulations prior to flying. Your pet should be securely in the carrier at all times when aboard the aircraft.
  • Always supervise your pet. NEVER leave your pet unsupervised or unattended in a carrier. Failure to do so can result in damage to the carrier, escape, or injury to your pet.
  • Never give your pet sedatives or tranquilizers unless prescribed by your vet. If prescribed, be sure to get clear and precise instructions as to the dosage, the frequency of the dosage and any risks involved with sedating your pet. Follow the instructions exactly. Do not increase the dosage at your own discretion as pets can easily be over-medicated, especially when flying, as increased altitude can cause cardiovascular and respiratory problems.
  • Do not allow your pet to travel with a choke, pinch or training collar. Cats should travel with a collar that has a quick release or break-away feature.
  • Leads should not be used when your pet is enclosed in the carrier.
  • Be sure your pet's collar is secure and clearly displays proof of current vaccinations, your name, address and contact info.

Travel Tips for You and Your Pet

  1. Book reservations for you and your pet early. Most airlines restrict the number of pets allowed on board each flight.
  2. Complete and print your Guaranteed on Board® forms, or call your airline for its specific requirements.
  3. Research your destination city’s pet rules & regulations, along with those of where you will be staying.
  4. Prep your pet for travel. Be sure it has ample time to adjust to its carrier and practice traveling with your pet in the carrier on short trips prior to the big day.
  5. Make an appointment with your vet. Acquire a health certificate and ensure your pet is up-to-date with its shots no more than 10 days prior to your departure.
  6. Research and create a list of local vets and emergency clinics at your destination.
  7. Be sure you have all of your and your pet’s documentation in order. Do you have your pet’s health certificate? Do you have your Guaranteed On Board® forms to show to the gate agent?
  8. Have your contact info clearly and securely labeled on both your pet’s carrier and on your pet’s tags.
  9. Pack for your pet in advance so you can be sure nothing is forgotten.
  10. Arrive early on your day of departure and allow ample time for you and your pet to check-in and board your flight. Plan ahead and know various locations at the airport(s) where your pet can relive itself prior to (and between) flying.

Traveling by Car

  • Always supervise your pet. NEVER leave your pet unsupervised or unattended in a carrier. Failure to do so can result in damage to the carrier, escape, or injury to your pet.
  • Secure the carrier in the backseat of the car only. Do not secure the carrier to the front seat - your pet will be the safest in the back. The seatbelt can be secured through the luggage band located on the rear side panel of the carrier. The shoulder strap can be secured around the headrest if applicable.
  • Never give your pet sedatives or tranquilizers unless prescribed by your vet. If prescribed, be sure to get clear and precise instructions as to the dosage, the frequency of the dosage and any risks involved with sedating your pet. Follow the instructions exactly. Do not increase the dosage at your own discretion as pets can easily be over-medicated.
  • Do not allow your pet to travel with a choke, pinch or training collar. Cats should travel with a collar that has a quick release or break-away feature.
  • Leads should not be used when your pet is enclosed in the carrier.
  • Be sure your pet's collar is secure and clearly displays proof of current vaccinations, your name, address and contact info.

Size: LargeColor: Paisley
I had a heck of a time finding a carrier I liked for my 14 pound Coton. Out of about 8 popular, high rated carriers that I tried, only 3 were large enough. I needed something that would comply with Alegiant Air's 19x16x9" tall criteria. The Sturdibag large at 18x12x12 was roomy enough and squished down to 9", yet popped back up when not under a seat, bu I thought it looked and felt huge. A Worldpet carrier from Walmart at 9.53 x 16.78 x 20.81 was a bit roomier for my dog to stretch out but it was cheaply made and had no pocket or top entry. And last, the Sherpa which I originally bypassed because I thought it was ugly. Then I found it came in this funky paisley print and I gave it a shot. At 19" L x 11-3/4" W x 11-1/2" H, it is a hair smaller than the Sturdipet. It looks great and not too flashy or large. It's very well made, the entire top and one end zips open and there is a good size pocket on the opposite end. There is a hand carrier that I can actually use for shuolder carry (I'm kinda short at 5'5")and a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap. Unlike some carriers, when my dog is in it, it does not sag. When in full coat, my dog has a ton of hair so I wanted a bag with a lot of ventilation and this does. My dog is long so he's got to curl up to fit, but he has no problem standing up and turning around, and my flights are short at 1.2 hours. The pad that comes with it is rediculously thin and offers no cushion so I replaced it with a You & Me 18 x 11.5 x 2" orthopedic memory foam pad from Petco. I added some pictures for perspective. Hope this helps!

Cute bag but NO WAY fits a dog up to 22lbs!!!! I have a 21lb Jack Russell and she won't fit. In the picture I have attached her rear is all the way to the back of the bag..... It would be great for a dog 15lbs or less. I'm going to return it.

So I bought the large sherpa bag first since I figured why not have a little extra room for my dog? (He's about 20 pounds) I originally planned to travel with United which I checked the size of the bag before booking tickets and they said it would be no problem. But then we ended up getting tickets through Delta which was a little more difficult. You have to call and add a pet AFTER buying your ticket, which is dumb. And since we had one flight on a tiny plane I couldn't have a pet carrier longer than 15 inches. This one is 16 technically but I told the rep on the phone that it was 15. I stowed the large Sherpa bag in my husband's carry on for the other two flights (going from WA to NY) and those worked. No one even mentioned the size of the bag at the airport. After we took off I pulled it out from under the seat a little bit. It's not the most comfortable on the shoulder but there is also a 20 lb dog in there so understandable. The shoulder pad could just be a little bit more padded.

My Coco loves it. I bought for an upcoming trip we are planning on taking. He took to it right away and loves it more than his bed now. The material of the carrier feels solid and not cheap.
Amazon made a small mistake on the order but nothing a quick phone call couldn't fix.

Awesome item! I love the Guaranteed on Board feature of this bag. Basically, you go to their website www.flygob.com and you register your bag along with your Airline and flight number. They cross reference your bag with the Airline to make sure that the bag is compliant. THEN they print you out a document that shows the bag is compliant with your flight and airline. If you present that document to the Security and/or Gate Agent and they don't let you on the plane for some reason related to the bag, the Sherpa Company will pay for your flight AND your pets flight!!! You can register on their website every time you fly for free. Awesome product!!! Awesome Program!!!!!

I've gone through many pet carriers for my Bunny, 9lbs. This is the only one he doesn't pee in. I think it's because of the stability of the bag along with the mesh panels that allow him to see everything. The color is ok, I kinda wish I would have paid more and got this in black. It's very easy to get the bunny in and out of the carrier. I also really like the pocket on the side. It doesn't fit much but is enough space for his leash, harness and some treats. The shoulder strap doesn't stay up on my shoulder as nicely was I would like, but that's my only complaint. The quality is great and it easily fit under the seat on the airplane.

I liked this pet carrier when it arrived and now I like it even more now that I see that it cost about 35% more in my local pet store. However, it deos appear as though the vendor just jacked the price up --- law of supply and demand -- who knows? This is both sturdy and flexible and the zippers are good quality and sewn in all. I opted for this carrier for my cat over another one that only closed with velcro on the top. I'm also pleased to hear this can be carried on a plane and stowed under the seat in the event I should ever relocate at a distance.

I love this. I never see another carrier like mine when I go to the veterinarian. The cat can see out easily and I can reach in and comfort her. Plus, I love the pockets - a perfect place to keep prescriptions, receipts, vet instructions, and so on when I'm on my way out of the office. Lightweight and sturdy. Colorful and practical. Just love it.
