Wayrod are the new PP50's available as yet?????? these would be perfect adult Whippet size.

Spoke with manufacturer this morning, the New PP10 & PP50 available shortly 7-10 days, I am awaiting on prices and delivery. PP50 takes dog weight up to 20kg.

•PP10/PP20/PP30/PP40/PP50s are made of high quality plastic, which are strong and durable.
•Beautifully designed with a flexible cage lock, generously sized water bowl, funnel and litter tray.
•Can be used as a kennel as well as a portable carrier.
•Dimensions:
PP10 33 x 33 x 48.5 cm
PP20 37 x 37 x 52 cm
PP30 43 x 45 x 62 cm
PP40 44 x 53 x 73 cm
PP50 56 x 60 x 82 cm

All of these crates have been airline approved.

I will let you know as soon as available.


Dumb question, but what do those people with large/giant breeds do when the have previously transported their dogs in wire crates of the following dimensions? And that there dog needs this length, width, height to be able to turn around. And, if you cannot use collapsible crates, what do you do if you have a car that crates of these size won't fit into?

XLarge 110cm 70cm 80cm
XXLarge 120cm 75cm 85cm

The larger vari and wire crates are still available to be used, as long as they meet the requirements. As for transporting crates to and from airport, that could be a little more difficult, as such hire crates for the larger breeds will more likely be the norm than privately owned crates.

Thank you, the pp40 is not quite big enough but the PP50 will be perfect. I have a large Vari kennel but it is a bit big.

If you have a skye kennel the large will fit folded in half in the back of a ford station wagon,it will not fit in one piece.

Basically at the other end you need a van or no luggage to fit dogs plus crate in car :) .

The last time i flew with the Skye i luckily had 1 dogs was only away for 3 days & could fit my gear plus grooming box in a small suitcase.I also took my large soft crate as the weather for the shows where to hot for a Skye/vari .



My biggest peeve is why Virgin & Qantas can't have the same height limits (unless oversized)
Virgin is 80cm
Qantas 84 cm .

I have one that makes the size the other is a giant which i will most likely sell

fixed due to typo

Its a shame that with all the changes there is still nothing which stops rescue putting dogs straight from the pound on flights with 8-12 week old puppies. :thumbsup:

Oh but didn't you know they saved a life, yeah and bloody well risked plenty of others in the process. :thumbsup:

I have no respect for those who take straight from the pound and put them on planes. THINK PEOPLE!! :laugh:

I have just purchased a pp30 pet plastic carrier apparently international airport approved (arrived this week). It has the water container but no drip tray. Given that the bottom is solid plastic with no holes for spills to escape, does that mean it doesn't require a drip tray? I don't want to get to the airport and find it doesn't meet the new standard. Anyone had any experience with this?

It sounds like you have been sold an old style. There will be lots of this stock to clear. It is not up to the new regs.

Hi,

Im flying a large breed to Melbourne in March via Qantas. was told that I would have to use a wire crate, are they pulling my leg, or would I be able to use a large - xlarge vari kennel....Have tried calling AAE in perth, who I did the booking through, but they arent answering their phone.

So does this mean that any PP40 without a drip tray and water container is not suitable for flying?
Can you buy the drip trays and water containers separately???
I have 3 and don't really want to replace them all!!
