airline travel crate/kennel for Pyr's

by Lourdes & Ken Chartrand
(Ottawa)

Does anyone know of a IATA82 approved air travel crate/kennel large enough for a 160lb male Pyr. The XXL E/Z Collapsible K9 Crate from American Aluminum seems almost big enough, but not quite. IT is 48L x 32W x 36H which i believe is not large enough for him to turn around in. We are moving from Ottawa to Santa Cruz, Bolivia which is a long trip. We are considering breaking up the trip into 3 4-5hr flights with a day or two rest between flights. We also looked into private or charter flights but the cost was prohibitive to say the least. If someone could help with info about crate or cheaper charter flights, or alternative suggestions, it would be much appreciated.

Size sounds about right

Our crate for our rescue pyrs was about that size. It's a cramped space (like your airline seats I'm sure), but it's just big enough to turn around in for all the dogs we had to use it with.

If you try one out though and it's not big enough for your guy, you may be able to get one custom-made in a pinch. I googled great dane travel crates, and there's at least one company that will make custom crates for really big dogs. You'd just have to check the airline max size requirements.

Thank you for spending the time to research taking your dog with you. It may be a pain, but it will be so worth it to bring your boy along for the ride.

That is the size I sent a Pyr in to the U.S. just last week. As far as I know that is the largest made. There should be no problem in being able to move in it.
Alternately, you can buy one from air Canada. they sell Pyr sized crates for about 280$. That way you can be sure it is acceptable to the airline.
