I can carry it over my shoulder very comfortably or with the hand straps. It is airline approved and fits very nicely under the seat of all the planes we've been on.

When choosing an airline pet carrier, consider safety, comfort and airline regulations as they do vary. Once you know the regulations of the airline you will be traveling with, you can begin shopping for a carrier.

There are two types of carriers for air travel, a soft dog carrier and a hard carrier. The size of your dog as well as regulations will determine which type is suitable for your dog. Your dog will be confined to the carrier for the entire length of the flight so it is important that there is room to stand, turn around and lie down comfortably.

Most airlines will allow you to have your pet in the cabin, as long as the carrier has a waterproof or absorbent bottom and fits underneath the seat in front of you.
