Any advice here? I am checking the Lufthansa website and the largest crate dimensions allowed are 49x28x33 . However it seems I can only find the 48x32x35 online to purchase, and he definitely needs this size. I am actually concerned that even in that he will not be able to stand without his ears touching as they require. Has anyone travelled with a large GSD oversees and could offer advice? Thank you so much in advance

I bet Patti, aka Braverhund, could be of help to you. She lived in Germany with Grimm for awhile.

I used a 500 crate when I traveled with Vala to Germany in 2011. The rules have changed since then. I would call Lufthansa (I found them very easy to work with). You will also need a USDA stamped health certificate, current rabies, and what ever else the country you are going to requires. Also pay attention to what the USA requires for when you return.
