How to Pick the Right Size Kennel for Your Dog

When it comes to kennels, size matters. Whether you select a plastic or a wire kennel, if it’s too small, your dog will not be comfortable. On the other hand, if the kennel is too large, house training may not be effective as your pet may go to the bathroom on one side and sleep on the other. To properly size your dog for a kennel, measure him from the top of his head to the floor and from the tip of his nose to the base of his tail. The height of the kennel should be 1-2 inches taller than your pet when they are standing and sitting down, and there should only be enough room for your pet to stand up, turn around, sit and lie down.

cat likes it so far, needs some new hardware before it meets international airline regulations

 on April 27, 2015
By Cersar
I ordered this kennel for my medium sized cat to use when we move from the U.S. to the London. Based on my research, it complies with almost all of the airline regulations for international transport of cats that are going to be in the cargo hold of the plane. Be aware that if you are traveling from a country other than the U.S. or Canada on British Airways, this kennel does not meet the minimum size requirements for dogs or cats (you must use a size 200 or above) Also, no matter what airline you’re using, the plastic nuts must be replaced with metal nuts for international travel. Conveniently the hardware you need is also available via amazon, most likely under the “frequently bought together” portion of this kennel’s product page.

Best, most secure dog kennel for flying I have seen. Highly recommended for the safe transportation of dogs and similar pets.

This is the best kennel you can buy for your 30 to 50-lb dog’s flight. There may be others out there that are good too, but I have seen several kennels fail and this is not one of them. As an airport biologist and dog owner, I highly recommend this kennel. I use it regularly to transport raptors from our airport (many are greater than 7-years old!) and I now have one for my 33-lb Welsh corgi. It is strong and secure. No handle on top to mislead ground handlers into transporting this kennel inappropriately; rather, there are properly distributed handles along the sides for safe lifting and transport by 2 people. There are extra holes in the 4 corners of the 2 shells and holes at the top and bottom of the latching door that can be used to add extra protection using zip-ties. Zip-ties will help deter “do-gooders” from opening the front door and allowing pet escape (yes, this happens). My kennel came with the flight kit (bowl, stickers, absorbent padding. etc), which fulfill the basic requirements for most airlines. I added extra LIVE ANIMAL stickers, the zip-ties, and a spill-proof water bowl. I am confident that if someone accidentally drops my dog’s kennel, she will not get out. Remember to check that all screws are secure and that you have added zip-ties before leaving your pet with the ticketing agent.

Love the vault style lock

I’ve had my dog in a large wire crate since we got him, but because of a move overseas we needed to purchase a plastic crate for the plane ride. The Sky Kennel seemed to be the generally accepted standard for airline approved crates, so that’s what we went with.

weight guidelines are NOT ACCURATE for airline travel

 on February 18, 2016
By Amazon Customer
If you need this crate for airline flights, DON’T TRUST the recommended weights for the crate sizes. Amazon said my (36″) crate would fit a 50-70lb dog, and the provided color-coded chart said my (36″) crate would fit a 70-90lb dog. Well my dog is 42 pounds and this crate is too small. It barely fits for domestic airline travel and is way too small for international travel. If you’re purchasing a crate for airline travel please follow this link for kennel sizing: (…) It’s hard to accurately measure a wiggling dog but it’s very important since, if your crate is even a little bit small, they will refuse you on the day of travel. I learned this the hard way by trusting the weight recommendations for this size crate.

Looks good so far!

By Moppy
I’m living in Puerto Rico and this was one of the only vendors that would ship here. I chose expedited shipping and it got here in 3 days! So FAST! So, that’s great! I got it and thought, “oh man it’s a monster of a kennel!” It looks so big. My dog, who is 33 lbs and measures 32 inches long , 27 inches tall and 8 inches wide, fit really nicely. He has plenty of room to lay, sit, and turn around. He’s a street dog from the island and I bought this kennel for air travel. I will update my review when the time comes.
thanks for sharing...
