When transporting your pet, one of the central elements in enabling a comfortable journey is the travel kennel. There are a number of rules set by the International Air Transport Association to determine the most suitable kennel for each pet.

The size of the kennel should allow the pet to stand, sit and lie comfortably. To ensure this, your pet’s measurements need to be taken properly. In this video, we will take you through the process of taking those measurements correctly step by step.

Your pet will need to stand still in order for the measurement to be accurate. While the procedure is not stressful for the pet, feel free to use food or treats to award good behavior.

Measure ‘A’ is the animal’s length from the nose to the root of the tail. Remember not to include the length of the tail, which is a common mistake made when taking this measurement

Measure ‘B’ is the length from the ground to the animal’s elbow joint. Remember not to include the shoulder in this measurement.

Measure ‘C’ is the width of the animal measured at the widest point’

Measure ‘D’ is the height of the animal in a natural standing position from the ground to the top of the head, or the ear tips, whichever is higher. A German shepherds measurement, for instance, should be done up to his ear tips whereas those of a French poodle, or a beagle, should only be done up to the top of the head.

Providing our pet transporting specialists with the correct A, B, C and D measurements will enable them to determine the most suitable kennel size for your pet.

If your pet is too restless and the treats do not help calm your pet down, bring it next to a wall and mark on the said wall where the nose, root of tail and the highest spot of your pet are. You will then be able to make the accurate measures using these coordinates.

If you already have a travel kennel, we strongly recommend that you check your current pet’s measurements and provide them along with the kennel’s dimensions to our pet transporting specialists.

In order to determine whether it meets the IATA standards in size and quality, please take 3 photos, as follows:

Photo No. 1: The dog needs to be sitting inside the kennel and the photo need to be taken so that one can see the front of the kennel and the dog sitting inside it.

Photo No.2 – The dog needs to be standing along the right side of the kennel and the photo needs to be taken from the side so that one can see the side of the kennel and the profile of the dog standing beside it.

Photo No.3 – The dog needs to be standing in the same position as in Photo No. 2 but the photo needs to be taken from above to show the length of the kennel and the length of the dog.

If you require any assistance, we can send one of our representatives to take your pet’s measurements and photos
