Please note: My dog hasn't used this carrier as of yet. I'm posting this review to give other buyers a better idea of the dimensions of this product. Please ignore the 3 star rating because it's not based on a thorough review of the product. I just didn't want to give it an unfair rating. I bought it with an adult Cavalier King Charles in mind (she's currently a puppy). I wanted a carrier that my dog can be comfortable in (standing, laying, etc). However, I'm not sure if this will be the right fit for her. In the product description on this site and the Petmate company label, the dimensions are listed as 24"x16.5"x14.5". Also, the Petmate company label lists that the carrier is meant for dogs like the Lhasa Apsos, Westies, Pugs and Cairn Terriers. I put it together and measured the carrier from the inside with a tape measure. From the inside, it measures 20 3/4"x13 3/4"x14 7/8". The product label lists the entrance as 13.5" but I measured it from the inside as 12 1/2". Before you purchase this product, I would recommend going to a pet supply store w/ a tape measure to look at a carrier of similar size so you can get a better idea if it's the best fit for your dog. You can't always trust the measurements listed, especially when they're off by more than an inch. Also, you can find the Petmate carrier brand at *******.
I have owned multiple PetMate carriers over the years. Every new model simply improves upon itself. I really like that it is quick snap rather than the older models with bolts and wing nuts. What's great too is that when you snap it apart for storage, you can snap it together collapsed so pieces are not lost. It comes with a mini food/water tray that I'm afraid might not work too well most of the time but depends on your pets and whether the carrier is stationary or not.

I agree with another reviewer who indicated that this 'intermediate' kennel is really small. We have a dog that is slightly larger than a dachsund and she can't stand up in the kennel properly or lie down in it. It's quite a bit smaller than i expected but it's well made and really portable.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality
Was exactly what we were looking for. I searched every store I could think of and couldn't find exactly what I wanted. Too large, didn't like how it locked, ugly color, etc., but this looked good and performs exactly as we wanted it to.

Although the carrier is a good size for my larger cats, the kennel is not sturdy. In fact, when the vet brought my cat out to me in this carrier, the gate was not secured to the kennel. I was fortunate that the cat didn't escape .
I love this size. Although our cat is 7 pounds he can use it as his bed. We leave in open in a room so he can go in and sleep in it. It makes it much easier to get him in it when it is time to travel. Easy to assemble but not sure what to do with a small divided part that came with it.
Thank you for inquiring about the Petmate Intermediate Pet Taxi complying with the IATA pet carrier requirements. Yes, this is carrier is approved for airline use. I hope this answers your question. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 18, 2013
24 x 16 seems large for what I need but then again not sure. I have 2 cats that need to go to the vet for shots at times. Other times just the one. They are not large cats. Just wondering if this would work.ladyluck12345 on Jun 15, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
That is difficult for us to say, as we cannot know how big your cats are. The reviews should help provide an idea of the size as well as the dimensions.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 18, 2012
