Flying a new pup home in a Sherpa as a carry on.

Post by corker »

Good morning! How much does a 9 week old standard schnauzer usually weigh and how tall are they? I’m trying to arrange air travel for my new pup with me as a carry on in a Sherpa, but the smaller regional jets only allow the small Sherpa 16 X 12 X 8 which fits an 8 pound pup. I realize males weigh more (and I don’t know which sex I am getting yet), but I would love to hear your thoughts on this! Thank you!

Hi Melanie - I would have a word with your puppy’s breeder about your concerns as they would be the best to advise on this :)
