It is very important to have the proper size kennel for pet transportation. When your planning a pet move, plan ahead. Start by getting the right size kennel. Not only should your pet be able to stand up and turn around in the pet carrier, they should have 2-3″ of room between the top of their head and the top of the kennel. They should also have several inches from front to back and not hang over the kennel as this dog does.
Airlines will take your pet out of the travel kennel to be sure that #1 they haven’t been sedated and #2 they are not too small for the pet carrier supplied.
