Pet Crate Sizes

It is critical to your pets wellbeing when travelling that your pet travels in a crate that is suitable for them.  This means a crate that is not too small but also means a crate that is not too big.  A crate that is too big for your pet can mean if the flight has some turbulence your pet can become unsettled.  Dogtainers are experts in being able to select the correct size for your pet.  All crates used by Dogtainers comply with IATA specifications and are therefore approved by the airlines.

Pet transportation can be a little stressful for both pet and owner whether international, interstate, or within the same city. Starting out with the right, airline-approved animal crate reduces the concerns.

DOG CRATES AND CAT CRATES

The most common pets in New Zealand are, of course, dogs and cats. The pet professionals at Dogtainers will help you select the right crate for your dog or cat, so that it has enough space and feels at home during the journey. We have plenty of experience with puppies and kittens as well as fully-grown pets.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR CRATE SIZE

Need to transport a more exotic animal or unusual pet? Whether it’s an exotic fish, bird, goat, llama, or pot-belly pig, we can help.

We will help you choose an airline-approved animal crate that suits your pet and keeps it comfortable and safe wherever it’s flying to. Smaller animals like birds and reptiles travel in wooden crates with steel mesh panels while the largest passengers need custom-built animal crates.

We can also look after the import/export documentation, quarantine, vaccinations and all other international pet travel requirements. You can rely on our extensive experience and network to make your pet travel plans as smooth as possible.
