Choosing Your Portable Dog Kennel

Jun 8, 2008
Do you plan to travel with your dog, have you thought about where you will put them? Well if are planning a trip then a portable dog kennel is what you will be requiring. It is too difficult to have a large bulky dog cage in the car and you do not want your dog to be uncomfortable. The portable dog kennel is a great product for both the owner and the dog. When purchasing a portable dog kennel there are a few things you will need to look at.

Size Of The Dog

Depending on the size of your dog will depend on the size of the kennel, if you have a puppy or a small dog then you will want to have smaller kennel and of course if you have a big dog you need a bigger kennel. Remember it should not be too big, the dog should be able to stand up, turn around and lay back down again without it being difficult.

Type Of Material Used On A Portable Dog Kennel

Portable dog kennels come in a few different materials such as wire, nylon or plastic. Some of the more elaborate and expensive portable dog kennels use bamboo or panels built onto a wire. The material of your portable dog kennel needs to be based on your pet's personality. You don't want them to be able to rip through it or break their teeth on it. Take some time to shop around before you spend money on a kennel. Look and style have nothing to do with quality of the kennel so don't be fooled by one that looks cool.

What's The Primary Use Of It?

Will your portable dog kennel be inside the house or will you be moving it around a lot. If it's going to be used only in the house then you can get a large and sturdy wire kennel. On the other hand, if you're going to be moving around a lot then you're probably better off with a portable nylon kennel. This is because you can fold a nylon kennel flat so it is out of the way when it's not use and just spring it back up when you want to use it again. There are wire kennels that can fold and transport pretty easily but nylon is the best one.

Budget

As with everything you need to decide on a budget for your kennel. There are many different types on the market, some more expensive than others. Nylon ones are generally less expensive and should be used if you're training your pet. Wire kennels are slightly more expensive than nylon but they're still reasonably priced. Plastic kennels are the most expensive.

Why Use A Portable Dog Kennel?

Portable dog kennels combine the features of a permanent dog shelter and a temporary kennel that you can take with you wherever you go, they are less expensive that large crates and are easy to move around and pack away. Decide on what your requirements are and shop around before you make your purchase.
