If you don’t have your own kennel, or you are unsure which crate size will best fit your travelling pet then our kennels inventory is a wise choice. ScandiPet has IATA approved pet crates in different standard sizes.
Guidance for Dimensions of Container
To assist in determining the approximate size of the traveling container, the following formula may be useful. When calculating the minimum internal height of the container, the height of bedding should be added to the height of the animal.
A = length of animal from tip of nose to base/root of tail.
B = height from ground to elbow joint.
C = width across shoulders or widest point (whichever is the greater).
D = height of animal in natural standing position from top of the head or the ear tip to the floor (whichever is higher).
Measurements A, B, C and D for determining the container dimensions must relate to the largest animal.
The calculated dimensions are internal container dimensions.
Minimum internal container dimensions for a single animal:
- Container length = A + ½ B
- Container width = C x 2
- Container height E = D + bedding
- Snub-nosed breeds require 10% larger container
Providing your pet´s measurements
While we normally know which crate will best fit a given breed at a given age, we ask the client to provide us the pet’s measurements at the time of booking to prevent from having problems with airlines check at airport. Airlines advise that the travelling pet should have enough space to stand up, lay down and move freely to drink inside his crate and as per above measurements.
We rely on your cooperation in providing us continuous updates of the correct measurements of your growing pup until a week before departure.
In some cases, wrong measurements and wrong crate size can cause unnecessary extra costs, as the airfreight price depends upon the volume of the kennel and worst case scenario that airlines will not accept the pet.
