      About the Manufacturer

      From a gift came an idea, and then a commitment. Sherpa's Pet Trading Company started when Gayle Martz was not able to find a pet carrier for her Lhasa Apso, Sherpa. She discovered that a stylish, functional, lightweight carrier didn't exist. Her goal was to then create a product and a procedure for people to travel comfortably with their small companions. So she then designed and photographed her product and Sherpa and she went to work. The inspiration had begun. Having over 20 years of experience working with airlines, she knew how unsettling it could be to have to travel with your precious pets and not have them by your side. She set out to change that.

      Sherpa's crowning success is having the major airlines change their policy regarding pets in the cabin. The Sherpa Bag is now the officially approved soft-sided carrier for in-cabin use on the following airlines: Air Canada, Alaska, American, America West, Continental, Delta, Northwest, TWA, United and US Airways.

      The Sherpa Bag is recommended for use by veterinarians, the ASPCA, the Delta Society, Humane Society, and many four-footed customers.

      Because your pet's needs are foremost in her mind, the new design and safety innovations make this the perfect bag to take your pet wherever you go.

      Excellent pet carrier (medium)

       from Washington, DC– Verified Buyer

      This is the second Element Pet Carrier I have purchased. I already had the large carrier, and with the addition of a new cat, I decided to purchase the medium duffel carrier. These carriers are strong, durable, stylish, and well worth the investment. They are also easy to clean.

      I went to a variety of stores to check out the myriad of carriers available for purchase, but ultimately purchased two of these carriers (the large and medium duffel) from wayfair.com. I highly recommend these carriers!

      Sherpa Element Pet Carrier - large

       from Halifax, NS– Verified Buyer

      Fit my 20lb sharpei/pug mix perfectly; while not able to stand up, she was able to turn around comfortably and stretch out.
      Very sturdy design. I have used cheaper carriers that don't last even a single airplane trip with transfers.
      Flew within Canada & had no problems with the airline; carrier fit under the seat nicely.

      Functional and Attractive

       from Seattle, WA– Verified Buyer

      This carrier in Medium size looks different than the one pictured and does not have an interior collar hook-up. However, it's still stylish and functional. My dog loves laying in it, even when we aren't leaving the house!

      Pet carrier

       from Pooler, GA– Verified Buyer

      At first I thought it was to small but it is just right for my yorkie. It is made very well and has a nice sturdy bed inside. There are plenty of air vents and good storage areas. She use to bark the whole time when she was in the car but in the carrier she is very calm and quiet.
