Quality pet carriers in a range of sizes at the best value prices. Suitable for dogs and cats.


It is critical for you to measure your dog’s dimensions, so that you can determine the appropriate size that will comply with your Airline’s requirements. Dogs must be able to stand up and turn around. Airlines will refuse to accept crates that are too small. The biggest issue for some breeds is the body length, which may require a much larger carrier than expected. We will only send carriers once customers have measured their dog and confirmed suitability of the selected size.

Returns of incorrectly selected carriers will only be accepted for re-saleable units (unused / with all packaging intact), and return shipping is the customer’s responsibility.

Please check this link from Air NZ in regards to their rules when travelling with Pets:

IATA Requirements

The critical dimensions that you will need to check are;

A = length from nose to the base of the tail

B = distance from the ground to elbow on front leg

C = width of shoulders

D = height when standing normally, from ground to the top of the head

The minimum sizing requirements are:

Minimum height = D + the thickness of any bedding to be used

Minimum length = A + 1/2B  (ie length + half of the ground to elbow height)

Minimum Width = C x 2 (twice the width of the shoulders)

Short faced breeds require an extra 10% larger size.

IATA Pet Carrier Size Requirements

* Note: the breeds mentioned are typical examples only. Variations in size will occur in all breeds. You must measure your dog’s dimensions to confirm the correct minimum size carrier for the airline that you will be using.
