Well priced, exactly what I was looking for.
Bridgett E on Feb 9, 2019
I bought this item before to fly with my 2 labradors and had no issues. I only needed to replace the plastic bolts with steal bolts and nuts (as required by the company). I'm moving again now and I didn't hesitate to buy the same kennels (I sold the ones I previously bought).

I have bred & shown dogs for over 45 yrs and have used this company's crates especially for travel since they were first on the market. I will be back to buy one that I owe a fellow breeder when the size is in stock. Best price anywhere.
Judith A on Oct 19, 2017
Size, type of door latch and price, great sale price here on 1800petsupplies today. I've seen Sky Kennels in the past and for basic plastic crates they are a bit more sturdy and the large and up sizes have much more durable door latches. Would have liked a Ruff Tough but just can't afford it in XL size my dog needs right now.

Jaclyn H on Aug 10, 2017
This is the second Sky Kennel that I've purchased for my 50# Aussie. I use it to transport her in the backseat of my Subaru Forester. The first one was recently damaged in a serious auto accident. Despite major damage to my vehicle and damage to her Sky Kennel, she was shaken but suffered no injuries. I am so thankful she did not have free run of my vehicle. She might not have survived without her Sky Kennel.

Joseph C on Mar 15, 2017
Best for shipping puppies.
Terry G on Mar 15, 2017
I am a Labrador retriever breeder and this product is airline compliant with plenty of room for my 15 lbs pups. Just buy extra metal bolts and the airline applies the quick release tie downs. I have shipped all over US about 20 times. I trust this product. only received one cracked kennel and they replaced it promptly. It was an order of 6 and it was on the bottom. I think weight related.
wendy p on Mar 11, 2017
Is there really any other choice if you fly with your pets? Best affordable travel kennel that is actually accepted by all airlines. Many are not.

Free Shipping is NOT free, Got charged almost $20 for the "Free Shipping" on the crates I just bought. Everybody scams everyone these days. If you say its "Free Shipping" it should be Free! I hope these carriers are not junk.

i have a 90 lb american staffy wondering if the xlarge is big enough?
JANE on Jan 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Please use the following guidelines to determine the best size crate for your dog.

Length: Measure the length of your dog from nose to tail. When measuring the tail, be sure to add approximately 2-4 inches to the overall length, depending on the size of your dog. Height: To determine the height of the crate you will need, measure your dog from the top of the head to the ground.

What kind of Kemal are with allowed in airplane with size requirements?
Shamookii on Sep 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Sky kennels are always allowed for shipping purposes on any airline, for carry on it has to be a soft sided carrier that can stow under the seat in front of you. To get the dimensions allowed you have to contact the airline as airlines each have their own regulations depending on the type/size of aircraft.... Usually it is not more than 10 or 12 inches tall & I always order my soft sided carriers from Chewy as they have the best price & its here in 2 to 3 days.
I am looking at buying two giant crates - what is the cost of motor freight shipping?
Linda M on Jul 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, shipping depends on location. All you need to do to check your shipping cost is add the items to your cart, proceed to checkout, select "checkout as guest", and enter just your zip code and State, and hit the enter button. Shipping cost and options will then calculate for you.

Hope this helps!
what are the recommended maximum sizes of pets for the small kennel and also the medium kennel? Thank you
A shopper on Apr 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I went to the airline website to check the requirements. It gave how to measure your pet and then what size crate was appropriate. I would guess it is similar for all airlines. I flew United. If you go to their website and look at the "Petsafe" link in the information on travel with animals, you can click the links to get to the page showing how to measure your pet and then calculate the correct crate size.
Hi, can this be shipped to India (New Delhi)?
A shopper on Mar 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: To deliver outside of the United States please choose "International Shipping" located in the billing address section of the checkout screen and continue with Bongo to complete your order.
I looked through the site and couldn't find the metal hardware needed for airline travel. Has anyone found it online?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this kennel and it comes with metal bolts and plastic nuts. This provided hardware works well to hold the two halves together as designed. I think the provided hardware is designed to prevent over-tightening which would crack or break the kennel shells.If you use all metal hardware and over-tighten you will break the kennel shell. I shipped a 85 lb lab in this kennel on United and they had no issue with accepting it with the provided manufacturer hardware.
Is the small ok to carry on plane?
Cristina Z on Feb 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi!
I wouldn't use it as a carry-on. It's "small" but still a bit larger than a typical carrier you'd get at a pet store so it's a bit bulky. Also, it depends on how large your animal is. My cat is fairly chubby but short so she fits in it but could fit in a smaller one too.
I hope that helps!
Need the metal hardware kit for this kennel ?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you do need to buy the metal hardware separately
Can sky kennels be stacked?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Stacking such huge kennels doesn't seem safe to me. You're obviously buying this for a very large animal, and it seems to me that such an animal could easily rock the kennel and risk having it fall unless you have some very sturdy support system to insure that the kennel wouldn't move. As I only have one sky kennel, the thought of stacking such a kennel had not ever occurred to me. As far as the kennel being sturdy enough, I suppose that these kennels would hold up if you were to do so. They are very hard, tough, and rigid, and certainly seem heavy enough to hold the weight. I hope that this has been helpful.
Is giant the largest kennel size ?
E B on Sep 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I didn't buy giant so I can't say but I'm guessing the sizes go from smallest to largest and giant is the last size listed.
Alaska Air requires metal bolts & nuts, not plastic. Can these be adapted?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These can be adapted. I have spoken with other customers who have done it for air travel. We do not carry the adapter kits but they are easily available online
Does this come flat pack?
A shopper on Aug 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This will come with the top half nestled into the bottom half of the crate. There will be minimal set-up that needs to be done on it before it can be used
does this carrier have screws?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it comes with screws. However, if you plan on using this Carrier to transport your pet via airplane( most airlines have a web site with the requirements of pet carriers) you may need to purchase the required screws.

Will a full grown Doberman be comfortable in extra large travel crate?
Tins G on Jul 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I think it depends on the size of your Doberman. Mine fits well in a XL, but he only weighs 65 lbs. I know that some Dobermans are larger than this. If yours is from a bloodline of larger dogs, then maybe the Giant kennel would be better for you.

is this type of kennel can fit to my 17 lbs. shtizu poddle dog flying overseas?
tom m on Jun 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used this kennel to transport our 10 week old Airedale on a 2 hour flight from Seattle to Los Angeles. Worked well, but in order to fly we needed to purchase the metal hardware kit. Check with your airline to see their regulations.

When I weigh the Giant its only 42.5 pounds, is that correct?
shannon H on Jun 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For the giant size , we have the actual weight as 51.50 lbs.
The description says that the kennel weighs 30 lbs. However, the shipping information says the kennel weighs 67 lbs and will add an extra 8.50 for "oversize" shipping charges. I am trying to decide whether to buy it on this site or another. The 8.50 makes this site more expensive. Can someone please clairfy how much it really weighs and if that fee is correct? This is being donated to a person with a service dog so trying to get the best deal.
Sherlockthesd on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi. The shipping weight is the "dimensional" weight and the actual weight of the item is listed under the product summary along with the measurements of each size carrier.
We've checked the United airlines guidelines for shipping dogs internationally and trying to determine which kennel they will need. Our dogs length and chest height = 56". What size kennel will I need to purchase?
Rebecca T on May 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The dog must be able to sit, stand, and turn around naturally AND the top of the dogs head (when standing ) must have 3 inches clearance from the top of the kennel. International is 3 inches whereas the USA is 2 inches . They can and will refuse shipment if this requirement is not met. So those are the guidelines you need to follow .
Must also have an attached food and water container on the kennels door and absorbant material such as a towel in bottom of kennel as well.
