Which is the right kennel for my dog?

We can find in the market kennels specially designed to meet Live Animal Regulations established by I.A.T.A. Full compliance with these regulations (in terms of kennel design, materials and dimensions) guarantees the safe transportation of your pet.

When choosing a kennel for your dog, it is important to consider the following measurements:

• Kennel height must be at least 10 cm more than the height of the dog measured from the floor to the tip of its ears.
• The four sides of the kennel must have ventilation holes to allow adequate air circulation.
• Kennel width should make it possible for the dog to turn round the way it does when chasing its own tail.

A water dispenser must be attached to the kennel, and a bag with dog food should be included if the itinerary demands changing flights. And do not forget to put some absorbing material on the kennel floor (rags, newspaper) in order to maintain good hygiene conditions.
