Necessary Crate for Flying with High Energy and Anxious Dogs

Many large high energy breeds are prone to injuring themselves from escape attempts in less durable crates made from plastic, wire, and other cheap materials. This can also apply to many dogs with separation anxiety. Many airlines now require large high energy breeds or dogs with separation anxiety to fly in reinforced crates. Common breeds with this behavior include: 

Anxious Dog Breeds High Energy Breed Dogs
  • Beagle
  • Bichon Frise
  • Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
  • Cocker Spaniel
  • German Shorthaired Pointer
  • Havanese
  • Italian Greyhound
  • Retriever (Golden, Labrador, Chesapeake Bay)
  • Poodle
  • Terrier (Airedale, Fox, Jack Russell)
  • Vizsla
  • Border Collie
  • Blue Heeler
  • Dachshund
  • Dalmation
  • English Springer Spaniel
  • Irish Setter
  • Retriever (Golden, Labrador, Chesapeake Bay)
  • Siberian Husky
  • Shepherds (Australian, German)
  • Shetland Sheepdog
  • Weimaraner


We HIGHLY recommend using a reinforced kennel like the CR8-2FLY wood crate to fly with your dog in order to ensure their safety. You should also prepare your dog well in advance of any flight and provide ample time to acclimate your dog to the crate.


While the CR8-2FLY crate is IATA CR-82 compliant for all dog breeds, some airlines have additional restrictions regarding breeds, dog sizes, and sizes of crates. We strongly recommend providing the specifications of this crate (including sizes) and your dog to the airline transporting your dog to confirm if there are any additional restrictions!

Please be aware, as of July 2018, most domestic airlines have added additional breeds of dogs (including pit bulls and pit mixes) to their no-fly list. Please check with your airline if they will be allowed to fly your breed of dog.

Please confirm with your airline that they will accept this crate, before purchasing. We are not able to take returns in situations where verification of acceptance of the crate is not first obtained from an airline.


IATA stands for the International Air Transport Association. All CR-82 means is IATA's LAR (live animal regulation) Container Requirement #82  for large and "dangerous" animals; this includes dogs. 

If your airline can fly your breed, IATA CR-82 compliance is almost always required to transport the many breeds considered "dangerous", including (but not limited to):

  • American Bully
  • Pit Bull Breeds (American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier)
  • American Staffordshire Terriers
  • Anatolian Shepherd Dog
  • Ca de Bou
  • Cane Corso
  • Caucasian Ovcharka (Caucasian Shepherd Dog)
  • Dogo Argentino
  • Fila Brasileiro
  • Perro de Presa Canario
  • Presa Canario Tosa (or Tosa Ken)
  • Rottweilers
  • Tosa (or Tosa Ken)

LTL (less-than-truckload) Freight is used when shipments are 120 lb+ or for oversized equipment, which results in a truck with a large container delivering your order. Our freight carrier will contact you once your order makes it to the distribution center closest to the delivery address specified, and set up an appointment time for delivery.

Pet Pro Supply Co. Free LTL Freight Shipping - Curbside Delivery

Our standard Free Freight Shipping option for LTL deliveries is curbside, which is to a delivery to a Commercial Address and does not include a liftgate. If your order is to be shipped freight, you will have the option to specify whether the item will be delivered to a Residential, Limited Access, or Commercial address. If there is no option to select a shipping location, then this cost is already included in the price.

We strongly recommend adding the optional Liftgate for all deliveries to locations without a loading dock or forklift.

Freight Delivery Locations

This option specifies whether the delivery location is a Commercial, Residential, Residential Business, or a Limited Access address.

  • Commercial -¬†These¬†addresses are those defined by our freight carriers and/or zoned by local municipalities as commercial sites. Typically these addresses are zoned as commercial real estate or are used exclusively for business. Most commercial sites have tractor-trailer access and a loading dock.
  • Residential¬†- If the address used a residence, select this option. This includes Apartment/Condo complexes and dormitories.
  • Residential¬†Business -¬†Any business being operated from a home, apartment, or other dwelling where people live on the premises is considered to be a Residential Business.
  • Limited Access - Locations where deliveries are restricted, limited, or very far from a distribution center. Examples Include:
    • Place of Worship
    • Restricted Areas - Secure Research Facilities, Military Bases/Installations, Correctional Facilities, Government Buildings
    • Farms, Ranches, and Rural Areas
    • Recreational Areas - Camps, Parks, Fairs, Carnivals, etc.
    • Individual Storage Units
    • Sites - Convention Centers, Construction Sites, Mines
    • Schools and Universities
    • Commercial establishments not open to the walk-in public during normal business hours

Freight Liftgate

A liftgate is a hydraulic lift that is attached to the back of a truck that can lower freight to ground level. Freight carriers prevent their drivers from assisting with the unloading of heavy equipment other than using a liftgate to ground level. We highly recommend any delivery address without a loading dock, select this option.

However, please know that for certain very long items, such as Kennels over 6' in length, a Liftgate will not be able to bring the entire order down to ground level. Please have the necessary manpower available to receive your items with limited delay to the driver.
