With so many options on the market it is difficult to choose which crate will work best for you and your pup… If your dog does not get aggressive when confined or isn’t a chewer, then a soft crate could be the solution you both have been looking for…

Here are our top 10 reasons why soft dog crates are the best!

  1. Soft sided dog crates are available in a range of colours and the fabric design works well when you don’t like the look of too much metal
  2. Lightweight and Portable. Soft-sided crates are lightweight and ultra-portable, making them great for travel. You can pop them up at home, the vet’s, a pet show, or while camping, or on holiday
  3. Easy to Collapse and Set Up. Soft-sided dog crates are convenient to assemble, and are ideal for those of us who don’t like to fiddle with screws and tools.
  4. Doubles As a Pet Bed.  Makes for a comfy “den” and reduces anxiety at home when used as an  indoor kennel or pet bed.
  5. Rounded, Reinforced Corners. Less vehicle damage when loading or off-loading and reduce wear and tear on the crate
  6. Doors On The Front, Side, and Top. Three convenient points of entry for easy access and plenty of ventilation
  7. Space Saving When Not In Use. Collapsible and folds flat to 7cm for compact storage and hassle free travel
  8. Training aid. Perfect to help with potty / crate training puppies or adult dogs
  9. Available in 9 sizes. Suitable to use as cat carries, for teacup breeds up to Great Danes
  10. Versatile: Can be used for when you travel with your pet in the car, for confinement, training or as a pet bed.
