      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.

      Cindy 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

      Timon 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.

      Perfect for the traveling pet!

      Cathy from Houston, TX– Verified Buyer

      My companion, Rosie, loves to go everywhere I do. Now, I feel much better taking her in the car, as she is buckled up and safe in her carrier. She feels safe there, also. Tonight, we came in from out of town, and stopped by to get a reflexology treatment on our way home. Rosie went in, and I put her by my purse, and no one was aware she was even there. Rosie is very quiet, but I couldn't bring her places I do now, If not for this crate. It can go in baskets at the stores, etc... And a perfect bed away from home. It has made traveling so much more pleasant, when she is in her travel bag. And she can see in most directions, so she can keep tabs of what's happening! Best thing I ever bought for a dog!

      Good size

      Susan 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

      Karen 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.

      Very well made

      Delores 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!

      Durable but...

      Daniel from Syracuse, NY– Verified Buyer

      Dog hates riding in it. Tends to use it more as a place to hide his toys on himself :). Glad we defaulted to the larger size. It indicates it can hold dogs up to 20 pounds, but even our 10 pound Silky puppy can't stand up in there.

      Cat carrier

      Tammy from TWIN FALLS, ID– Verified Buyer

      This carrier is really nice. The only issue I had is we have 2 med sized cats and it wasnt quite big enough for both of them comfortably. But it was a very nice carrier and we are going to make it work for the little bit we need it for!!

      Very Nice

      Louise from Frisco, TX

      I haven't used this yet, but it is very nice and is well constructed. Since I have two kitties I need a sturdy carrier which is lightweight and will accommodate both cats for trips to vet, etc. This carrier appears to meet those requirements very well.

      Excellent pet carrier

      Bird on the Wire from Toronto, Canada

      These carriers are great for short trips, including visits to the vet, etc. Because you can open them either at the top or at the end, you have a choice as to how you will get your pet inside. For example, the top opening is great for getting reluctant cats inside, but the opening on the end is good for dogs, who can just walk right in. The carrier is lightweight but sturdy, easy to carry, and easy to get in and out of a car. The only thing I have found is that even the largest carrier isn't quite tall enough. My cat is quite big and has long legs. He can stand when he's in the carrier, but only if he keeps his head level with his body. There is not enough headroom for him to hold his head up normally. Lying down he is fine....plenty of room then, but I probably would not use this carrier on a long trip for a pet at the larger end of the recommended limits.
