Petmate Airline Crates
From the makers of the Vari Kennel, Pet Porter, Petmate has been making quality pet crates and other pet supplies for a long time. The Sky Kennel for pets is for those that want to travel with their owners and is a perfect addition to this quality line of products suitable for international and domestic air travel.
Made of light gray, high quality, heavy duty plastic, this pet carrier will keep your dog safe during traveling. Should the crate get bumped during the flight, you can rest assured that no harm will come to your dog. This kennel features durable steel wire doors for added security to keep your mind at ease during the flight.
Sky kennels are able to withstand the effects of weather and they are also corrosion resistant. The wiring used for ventilation purposes is made of extra strong steel which prevents your dog from chewing its way out of the crate. Warranties for these types of kennels last for years before expiry. The bottom of the crate is leak proof and you do not have to worry about messes spilling onto your floor or the cabin floor.
A Sky Kennel has a secure latch that ensures your dog stays in the crate throughout the flight. It is made with a heavy duty plastic shell that protects your pet during the flight.
Airlines insist that dog crates to be used in cabins must have enough inlets for air and this is a measure used to prevent your dog from coming to harm. Lack of sufficient air not only makes dogs anxious but it can also be life threatening. This sky kennel has ventilation on four sides, ensuring that enough air gets in and out of the crate.
The sizes of this sky kennel vary and are able to carry small dogs up to an extra large dog. This line is able to crate most breed sizes, meaning you have a chance to get a crate that is the right size for your dog.
Before getting a crate, ensure that you have measured your dog to get its dimensions which you can then use in crate selection. A good crate allows your dog to turn around in it comfortably which is important for adjustment during the flight.
This kennel is very light in nature which makes it easy to carry as compared to wired crates. To assemble the crate, you will not be required to use any tools and this makes it easy to set up the crate.
What are you Waiting For?
The versatility of this sky kennel makes it possible for you to use it to carry other pets such as cats and rabbits with ease.
