Port-A-Crate By Petnation

This carrier contains all the key features you need to keep your dog comfortable and it complies with most airline regulations so it is ideal for airplane travel. And it does this all while featuring a beautiful tan coloring with red trim and leather handles so you and your dog can travel in style!

Potential Drawbacks To Consider

One aspect that some customers have found unsatisfactory is the rigid structure. This is designed to be a sort of blend between soft side and hard carriers so it has a rigid frame although that frame is somewhat malleable. And the floor of the carrier is hard so you’ll want to include some additional padding to keep your dog comfortable.

What Do Others Say?

One of the best ways to really get a sense of how a product will perform or what kind of benefits it might provide for you is to see how satisfied (or unsatisfied) other people were with it. Check out the following testimonial:

“It's a nice looking bag and the dog seemed comfortable. She slept in it the entire 2 flights (we had a layover) without a peep or whine or anything. And no, she was not under any kinds of meds. The bag was that comfortable for her.”

This shows that the rigid structure is not necessarily a bad thing. With the more rigid frame, you can be sure the carrier doesn’t collapse down onto your dog while they are inside of it and underneath an airplane seat. This helps ensure that they have as much space to shift position as possible.

As helpful as testimonials can be in helping you understand the real value a product can add, you do have to keep in mind that different people do have different needs and priorities.

So while these testimonials you have read can be helpful, you might also want to look for more testimonials and reviews from customers who have very similar needs and priorities as you do. Doing this will give you the most accurate idea of how well a product will match your specific needs.

Buying Advice

One of the best things about buying this carrier from Sherpa is that they have a free “Guaranteed on Board” program. You get a certificate that you take with you and if you are denied boarding because of your Sherpa carrier, the company will fully refund the cost of your flight—including the pet fee!


Final Word

This dog carrier is perfectly designed for air travel and it can also be a great car carrier. Overall, it’s extremely well built and beautifully designed!
