The simple fact is that most pet carriers you see in use at an airport are non-complying. Only the tiniest of dogs can fit in a carrier that is 8-9 inches tall. The bag you will see most often, a classic Sherpa bag in size Medium, is 10.5 inches tall. No ticketing agent or gate agent will turn a hair over a medium Sherpa bag, and there is, in practice, a bit of leeway afforded to traveling pet owners. Don’t take it to extremes (a large Sherpa bag is too large, as is an extra-large SturdiBag), because even if you can charm your way past an agent, you still have to fit your dog in an airplane’s under-seat space. Since that space is fairly shallow, your dog’s carrier needs to fit oriented left-to-right. A carrier that is 18 inches long works; 19 inches is iffy; 20 inches is too long.
No, 40 pound dogs are not allowed to fly in the cabin.
The carrier must fit under the seat in front of you, whether it's a hard crate or a Sherpa bag. And most airlines will check dilligently that you have not 'stuffed' a dog or cat into a carrier that is too small for them.
Rules aro also very stringent about dogs in cargo. They must be able to stand up with good head clearance, and be able to fully turn around in the airline approved hard carrier.
And then there are the weather restrictions. Even if the weather is OK from your departure city, they can and do refuse your animal if the weather at your destination is either too hot or too cold.

If you’re a first-time flyer, how do you get that fundamentally important confidence that your larger pup will in fact fit on the plane, and will be comfortable in the space available to her? Look at the measurements that are available — by now, Dog Jaunt has — and mock up a space that size. Buy a carrier that flexes — I don’t know of any more flexible carrier than the SturdiBag (and I assure you that I’m still not on retainer by SturdiProducts — when, oh, when will they call me?!). Insert your pup, and try fitting the loaded carrier in the available space. Keep in mind that she’ll need to be entirely under the seat in front of you only during takeoff and landing — during the rest of the flight, you can pull her carrier out a bit, into your foot area.Thank you SO MUCH for this post. My dog, Teddy, is flying for the first time tomorrow in an XL Sturdibag (he TECHNICALLY fits in the large, but as an overprotective mom I couldn’t bear to think of him squished in that tiny space) and I was definitely stressing about taking the XL onboard… it definitely looks questionable and huge. However, I think these pics will definitely help get him on if we have any issues.

We are certain that you will find a Sherpa model to suit you and your .Hi there. First, thank you sooo much for having this website. I’ve been reading it for the past week to get much needed answers to my questions. Nevertheless, I am hoping for your opinion on my predicament. I am flying in late July for a 2 week trip to Colorado from Los Angeles. It’s about a 2.5 hour flight, so not too bad. I am planning to take my 2 dogs, one is 13 lbs and the other is 8 lbs, with me. I am flying Southwest. Southwest allows 2 dogs per carrier, and I am flying alone, so I want to find what would be most comfortable for them, would fit under the Southwest seats, etc. i woukd prefer something on wheels but space is more important. I am leaning towards the Southwest bag or the large Sherpa but I also found a bag by Bergan on ebay with removable wheels, 10w x 13h x 19l. Are you familiar with the Bergan bag at all? I haven’t been able to find it in stores so I’m hesitant about it though the removable wheel option seems ideal. Any thoughts?
