Some airlines recently experienced incidents where large, strong or upset dogs escaped from their plastic kennel simply by chewing the sides of their crate. This has resulted in much damage to the inside of the plane and danger for human passengers in flight. Below is a special kennel constructed to respect the IATA Container Requirement No. 82, called “CR 82″ to relocate these dog breeds in safety.
The list of potentially aggressive dogs will include breeds such as Pitbull, Rottweiler, Mastiff, Cane Corso… etc. as well as all the crosses of these breeds. The list of the potentially aggressive dog breeds should be available on your airline’s website. Here is the link for the list provided by the Air Canada website:
At Manoir Kanisha, we can construct any size of CR 82 travel crates with solid timber.
These flight kennels can be tailored to fit any dog’s dimensions. The crate pictured below measures 48(L) x 32(W) x 35(H) inches. It is the equivalent in size to a No. 700/Giant plastic SKY KENNEL. It was constructed for a Pit-Bull travelling internationally. This crate alone (without the dog) weighs 60 kg or 132 pounds.
We suggest that, before you buy a travel kennel for your dog, you verify if his breed needs a CR 82 flight kennel.
Should your airline require a CR 82 for your dog, contact us as soon as possible. We need about 10 working days to construct this type of flight kennel for the above breeds. If you have an urgent departure and you must leave in a rush, we may be able to construct your crate sooner for your dog’s specific dimensions but there would be an additional fee for constructing your crate outside our business hours.
Once constructed, the CR 82 must be brought to a specialized company for its heath treatment. This requires an additional 2 days. Therefore, you must plan a total of 12 working days to construct and treat your CR 82.
“Allo Mr.Harris and Nicole! BOSS and I made it safe in Los Angeles, California. The trip went well for both of us. BOSS was very happy to come out of is CR-82 travel crate but he didn’t seem to be too traumatized by the relocation. He still likes to go back in his travel crate. We are using it as a dog house now (a very expensive one! haha!). We went to the beach this morning to see the sunrise, LA is very beautiful and warm. I think we are going to like it here. Thank you so much for all the help and support we got from you. It made all the difference! All the best!” Stephanie & BOSS
