Welcome to the Airline Approved Dog Kennels superstore! Here at Pet Mountain, our goal is to make owning and loving a dog as worry-free as possible. One of the biggest problems dog owners regularly face is finding a safe, comfortable carrier or kennel that meets the national airline requirements. We know what a hassle that can be (we've dealt with it ourselves!) and wanted to make things a little easier for you and your pet, so we scoured the web for the finest, high quality hard sided kennels and soft sided carriers that come pre-approved for air travel! Check out our whole selection to find the perfect choice for your dog, all priced up to 70% less than you'd pay somewhere else!

Pesky airline requirements should never get in the way of you having your best friend by your side at all times. While we would always recommend checking with your airline for specific requirements before showing up at the gate, these special carriers and kennels are made specially to comply with the air travel standards enforced by the vast majority of air carriers. But that hardly means your furry friend will travel in discomfort! No, these dog carriers feature the very best in comfort and safety features, allowing traveling pooches plenty of room, ventilation, visibility and room to rest whether the flight is long or short. You can alwys count on Pet Mountain having your back, on the ground or in the air!

So what will I do on airlines that require you to keep your dog under the seat? I will turn Chloe’s carrier (after takeoff) so that it’s half under the seat and half under my feet. That way, she has a bit more room, she can see me, and I can feed her ice cubes and treats during the flight. It’s no more than other passengers do with their carry-ons, and, as with their bags, it only takes up my floor space. This under seat airline dog carrier uses high quality, durable fabric, with sturdy mesh windows.

I have flown with two different dogs (one young and one onthe elderly side), and both were good, relatively calm flyers. They were fairlysimilar, in that they would both get nervous while the plane was sitting on therunway or taxying, but they would both settle down and go to sleep as soon asthe plane took off. I think the rumble of the engines may have been soothing,the same way that car rides are often sleep-inducing for human babies. If oneof them got restless before takeoff, sneaking my hand through the top flap ofthe carrier to stroke their ears seemed to help (though remember, even if youunzip the carrier a little to reach your hand in, you cannot let your dog out). Worrying about buying a cat carrier or a dog carrier that will not fit under a plane seat is a thing of the past. Sleepypod's folding system allows pets to travel in the largest space possible while the airplane is in the air, yet still allows for stowage under an airline seat. When the captain says you can recline your seat, rotate the Sleepypod Air so it is between your feet and then expand the ends so both you and your little friend can stretch out comfortably for the duration of the flight. In-cabin pet travel has never been so comfortable.Sherpa™ is the carrier source for pets on the go! This exceptional brand features a collection of comfortable, durable soft pet carriers. From our best-selling Sherpa pet carrier to our exclusive and pet carriers - we have pet carriers for every breed of small dog and cats. Sherpa carriers were the first soft-sided pet carrier to be endorsed by major airlines and continue to be the industry standard for pet carriers. When it comes to choosing the best airline approved pet carrier, you must look closely at the type in relation to the pet that you’re taking with you. Dogs, cats, guinea pigs, ferrets, and rabbits are just a few, and each has a totally different requirement. As long as they don’t disturb the other passengers, pets are allowed to travel with their owner.
