“Approved for Use on Most Major Airlines” VS. “Guaranteed on Board”

Please note, only the Element Duffle for pets up to 8 pounds is Guaranteed On Board®. The Element Carrier for pets up to 16 pounds and Element Duffle for pets up to 14 pounds are approved for use on most major domestic airlines. What’s the difference?

Approved for use on Major Airlines means that a carrier:

  • Provides adequate ventilation
  • Is leak-proof
  • Safely encloses the pet
  • Conforms to underseat dimensions

Most pet carriers and all Sherpa® carriers are airline approved, however ONLY Sherpa® carriers are Guaranteed On Board®.

Guaranteed On Board® is the only program that guarantees a Sherpa® carrier meets an airline’s specific rules and regulations and will be allowed on board. All small and medium Sherpa® carriers are included in the GOB program.

  • Go to www.flygob.com
  • Select the participating airline
  • Enter the flight info, carrier info and pet info
  • Print and sign the forms and present when boarding

Should the passenger be denied due to the Sherpa® carrier, Quaker Pet Group will reimburse the pet parent for ticket and pet fee–guaranteed!

Questions to ask before traveling with your pet:

  • Is my pet too old or young to handle the stress of traveling?
  • Is my pet in poor health?
  • Is my pet recovering from surgery or a traumatic event?
  • Is my pet pregnant?
  • Does my pet get motion sickness?

If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, check with your vet if your pet is suited for transport in its current condition.

Prep your pet:

Be sure to purchase the correct size of carrier appropriate for the weight of your pet. Using a carrier that is too large could result in motion sickness. Your pet should have enough room to stand up and turn around inside the carrier.

Prior to traveling make sure to allow ample time for your pet to familiarize itself with its carrier. We recommend purchasing a carrier at least a month in advance to allow your pet sufficient time to become accustomed to it.

Put the carrier in an open area so the pet can investigate and get used to its scent and shape. Put one of your pet’s toys, treats or blankets inside the carrier to entice your pet to enter it willingly. Do not force your pet inside the carrier. Take your pet on short trips in the carrier so they get used to being transported in it. If your pet does not like being inside, or tries to escape from the carrier, we recommend further training prior to travel or considering transporting your animal in a hard-sided carrier.

Traveling by Plane

  • Always check your airline’s rules and regulations prior to flying. Your pet should be securely in the carrier at all times when aboard the aircraft.
  • Always supervise your pet. NEVER leave your pet unsupervised or unattended in a carrier. Failure to do so can result in damage to the carrier, escape, or injury to your pet.
  • Never give your pet sedatives or tranquilizers unless prescribed by your vet. If prescribed, be sure to get clear and precise instructions as to the dosage, the frequency of the dosage and any risks involved with sedating your pet. Follow the instructions exactly. Do not increase the dosage at your own discretion as pets can easily be over-medicated, especially when flying, as increased altitude can cause cardiovascular and respiratory problems.
  • Do not allow your pet to travel with a choke, pinch or training collar. Cats should travel with a collar that has a quick release or break-away feature.
  • Leads should not be used when your pet is enclosed in the carrier.
  • Be sure your pet’s collar is secure and clearly displays proof of current vaccinations, your name, address and contact info.

Travel Tips for You and Your Pet

  1. Book reservations for you and your pet early. Most airlines restrict the number of pets allowed on board each flight.
  2. Complete and print your Guaranteed on Board® forms, or call your airline for its specific requirements.
  3. Research your destination city’s pet rules & regulations, along with those of where you will be staying.
  4. Prep your pet for travel. Be sure it has ample time to adjust to its carrier and practice traveling with your pet in the carrier on short trips prior to the big day.
  5. Make an appointment with your vet. Acquire a health certificate and ensure your pet is up-to-date with its shots no more than 10 days prior to your departure.
  6. Research and create a list of local vets and emergency clinics at your destination.
  7. Be sure you have all of your and your pet’s documentation in order. Do you have your pet’s health certificate? Do you have your Guaranteed On Board® forms to show to the gate agent?
  8. Have your contact info clearly and securely labeled on both your pet’s carrier and on your pet’s tags.
  9. Pack for your pet in advance so you can be sure nothing is forgotten.
  10. Arrive early on your day of departure and allow ample time for you and your pet to check-in and board your flight. Plan ahead and know various locations at the airport(s) where your pet can relive itself prior to (and between) flying.

Traveling by Car

  • Always supervise your pet. NEVER leave your pet unsupervised or unattended in a carrier. Failure to do so can result in damage to the carrier, escape, or injury to your pet.
  • Secure the carrier in the backseat of the car only. Do not secure the carrier to the front seat – your pet will be the safest in the back. The seatbelt can be secured through the luggage band located on the rear side panel of the carrier. The shoulder strap can be secured around the headrest if applicable.
  • Never give your pet sedatives or tranquilizers unless prescribed by your vet. If prescribed, be sure to get clear and precise instructions as to the dosage, the frequency of the dosage and any risks involved with sedating your pet. Follow the instructions exactly. Do not increase the dosage at your own discretion as pets can easily be over-medicated.
  • Do not allow your pet to travel with a choke, pinch or training collar. Cats should travel with a collar that has a quick release or break-away feature.
  • Leads should not be used when your pet is enclosed in the carrier.
  • Be sure your pet’s collar is secure and clearly displays proof of current vaccinations, your name, address and contact info.
