These are standard pet travel IATA approved pet shipping crate and kennel sizes. These sizes can vary from brand to brand please see note below. We can provide custom size animal shipping containers to accommodate any, and all pet sizes. If you have your own pet carrier please refer to the dimensions below. We use Vari / Petmate brand crates. As long as the dimensions are within an inch or two, and it is a plastic crate with a metal gate, most other brands, with the exception of the Nylabone collapsible, would be fine. The below dimentions are the base guidelines for dog transport and pet airline proper kennel sizes. All pet travel carriers must be the metal bolt together type. There are a few types that have clips, or a dial, and these are not air travel approved.

You can order crates from the PETCO link below, and have your crates delivered directly to your door. Please see the note below on the different size variations from brand to brand.
