About Folding Dog Crates
When looking at different types of folding dog crates, the important question to consider is whether or not it needs to be easily transportable from one place to another. If it is going to remain in the same place for a long period of time, a traditional metal-based crate can be unfolded and installed as a permanent measure. If it needs to be transportable and easy to carry while still offering a strong and safe solution, folding crates from fabric materials would be a suitable choice. All types of folding dog containers can also accommodate some form of bedding in the base.
Folding metal dog crates and cages come in a variety of sizes, making them suitable for virtually any kind of canine customer. Various designs are available that open from either the front, the side, or both - this allows easy access for the dog and its owner if necessary. If a cage needs to be placed in the rear of a car, versions with a single sloping side are available that can be used in the back of a hatchback vehicle.
Fabric and plastic/metal based holders are designed to be carried in the same manner as a sports bag or small suitcase, and they are considerably lighter than regular cages. If cleaning is a concern, fabric surfaces can be washed in a machine if necessary, while the plastic/metal frame provides the necessary strength and protection for the dog - this also makes this type of container ideal for prolonged use indoors.
