As in-cabin pet policy is not regulated by the FAA and is done so by each airline, it has been tricky for people traveling with their pets to get a clear answer as to whether or not an airline approved carrier would fit beneath the seat on a particular airline. As a result, we have partnered with a number of pet-friendly airlines to create Guaranteed On Board®. GOB allows pet parents to get an actual guarantee that their carrier will be allowed on board. Simply go to , select the airline and complete flight, pet and carrier info. If everything is in compliance, print the form and present it at check-in. If you’re refused entry due to their Sherpa® carrier, we will reimburse you for your ticket and their pet fee. Essentially, we’ve worked with the airlines to build an online form that encompasses all of their specific requirements so you and your pet can travel stress-free. Guaranteed On Board - fly with peace of mind.
