      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.

        original delux pet carrier.

        from Manchester, CT – Verified Buyer

        My Teddy bear dog lives this carrier. Well vented. I like that when traveling you can unzip the top and front so dog as movement. Cushion very fluffy items are easy to clean. Went to fla and backto ct driving accepted in all a Hilitons. I like the fact the its airline approved. I would buy this. Producted and have recommended it.

        very useful

        from OGDEN, UT – Verified Buyer

        the bag is sturdy and well made. My cat is about 16 lbs. We've tried the hard plastic carriers and our cats HATE them. It's much easier to get them to go into this pet carrier and then they feel cozier, therefore safer, in a soft carrier. The zip out side is a nice feature. I have one this size I bought from Petco and I think this one is nicer.

        Very well made

        from Redondo Beach, CA – Verified Buyer

        I purchased this pet carrier for my 2 cats when they need to go in the car and to the Vet. This pet carrier is very well made and does not look like the average pet carrier. My cats seem to like it too and they usually do not like anything that keeps them contained!

        Good size

        from Quincy, MA – Verified Buyer

        I was not sure which to order for my 10lb cat. The medium is perfect. This carrier is sturdy and easy to carry. I was looking for something that my cat may like to enjoy as well as a carrier. I have been putting her toys and treats inside to entice her. Still working on this!

        great carrier

        from Ridgefield, CT – Verified Buyer

        Just used this for the first time yesterday. Easy to get the cat in and out. Much less meowing in the car than the usual howls using a standard plastic crate. lots of visibility for the cat I think helped. Easy to fold away and store afterward.

        Appears to be well made

        from york, PA – Verified Buyer

        Light, solidly made. The only negative is that the rigid tray in the bottom is slightly longer than the carrier but you can still get the front zippered. Pros: well made Cons: the length of the tray inside

        Sturdy Dog Carrier

        from Pismo Beach, CA – Verified Buyer

        Love it!! The color (I got the purple) is great. Easy to carry and my puppy hasn't been able to chew through it.

        Great product and price

        from New York, NY – Verified Buyer

        Sherpa bags are the best around and approved for airline travel - Wayfair has the best price on this bag and it arrived in perfect condition!

        great carrier for an unhappy traveler

        from Fairfax, VA

        Our cat hates the car, but she hates it a little less in this - it's easy to carry and is snug enough to keep our cat comfy without being suffocating.
