    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.

    Comfortable Quality Carrier

    Phyllis from Surfside Beach, SC– Verified Buyer

    My cats seem very comfortable when I transport them in this carrier to and from the Veterinarian. In fact, my cats love this carrier so much, they sleep in it at home. I'm very happy with the quality of this product.

    Exactly what I needed

    Alice from Dripping Springs, TX– Verified Buyer

    I had just gotten my puppy and I had gotten a carrier for her early had gotten eaten from the inside out by one of our older dogs. My brother had had the black version of this and liked it so I went looking for a girly-er one and I found it here. She loved it and even after she kinda out grew it just a little bit she would still go into in if it was on the ground and open. It was her safe zone.

    Very good carrier

    LWT3 from Michigan– Verified Buyer

    My cat likes this carrier more than our previous carrier, which was plastic. I think the old carrier seemed to our cat like a cage, and he hated it. Then again, the only time we put him in it was to go to the vet's office once a year, and that always scares him.

    Perfect travel bag

    Lynnnsie from Glendale, AZ– Verified Buyer

    Our puppy enjoys traveling in her new bag. At home she uses it to take naps in. Great quality, sturdy and stylish. I highly recommend it. Our 5 pound chihuahua enjoys his Sherpa in the medium size. The two pound chihuahua puppy fits the small size Sherpa with room to grow.

    I've trusted Sherpa for six years now. Never a problem when flying.

    Large size sherpa pet carrier

    Deborah from Clayton, NJ– Verified Buyer

    Took my 16.5 pound cat Izzy to the Vet in this carrier last week. So much easier and lighter to carry than a plastic carrier! My cat seemed very comfortable in it. She even had a little accident on the sherpa lining and all I had to do was remove it and hand wash it in the kitchen sink! Good as new! Highly recommend! Thank you Wayfair!!!!!!!
