The size of your pet’s travel crate – particularly by air, is governed by legislation and it is critical to ensure your container is of the correct minimum dimensions and has the necessary and adequate ventilation required. The internal crate measurement has to be greater than the length of your pet, by at least 2 inches – allowing enough space for your pet to stand up, turnaround and lie down with legs out.
Below is an outline of how best to measure your pet:
- The Length of your pet when standing; Base of Tail to Tip of Nose
- The Height of your pet when standing: Floor to Top of Head or Ear
- The width across the shoulder
