Please read the following Guidelines for using an Airline Approved Kennel:
When traveling by air with your pet, remember to check with the airline at least two weeks in advance for their rules and requirements for Airline Approved Kennels.
Don't use PetMate kennels in place of outdoor runs or long term holding cages. Young animals should be allowed out of their kennel well before the limits of their bladder and bowel control will tolerate. Many adult animals will tolerate kenneling during a normal workday, but a midday visit for airing and socializing with the animal is strongly encouraged.
To avoid strangulation, don't leave your pet alone with a choker collar on, even when inside an Airline Approved Kennel.
Don't allow children to play in, on, or around the Airline Approved Kennel. Keep the Airline Approved Kennel's door closed around children to eliminate the hazard of protruding hinge and latch pins.
Periodically inspect the plastic shell for cracks, especially after exposing the kennel to severe shocks, changes in temperature, or other harsh or challenging conditions. Check and tighten latches and screws periodically, especially before moving your animal in the kennel.
Discourage aggressive behavior in the Airline Approved Kennel. Biting, chewing, or pawing at either the plastic shell or metal wire parts may result in injury to the pet or damage to the kennel. These are excluded under the product's warranty. Exercise caution when closing and opening the Airline Approved Kennel door to avoid catching the pet's paws, tail, or snout in mechanism.
Avoid heat injury or death. Never leave pets in a closed car on a hot day or in direct sun. Car windows have a greenhouse effect; temperatures can rise to well over 100 degrees (F) inside a closed car within minutes. Similarly, never leave a pet unattended in its kennel in direct sunlight.
Important: Positive training will help your pet to accept this product as a desirable place to rest. Introduce pet to its kennel while supervising. Start with the door open and leave familiar items or treats in kennel. Once the pet enters on its own, close the door, observing and soothing pet as needed. Never use this product for punishment. Leave the pet's line of sight for increasing periods until the pet stays calm. Never leave your pet alone and confined for extended periods. Chewing, scratching, or biting at any part of the kennel may result in injury. These behaviors indicate that more training is needed and they should be discouraged gently.
