So how do you choose the right transport dog crate or kennel for your 4 legged friend ?
First of all you have you have to look for the right size, so the dog feels comfortable in the crate or kennel. This means, the dog must be able to stand up without any problems, and sleep in it. For transport dog crates the size must be that big, so the dog can feel free in it. But for dog kennels, it is recommended that the dog can also turn around without any problems. As transport dog crates are made for traveling, but dog kennels are made because the dog can have his private space.

Many dog trainers and experts say, that choosing a wire dog kennel or transport dog crate is a quite bad idea. The dog feels not so secured in them. Because the dog is visible from all the sides, this makes the dog to feel more endangered. You also don’t like to live in a room, made of glass. I and dog experts recommend you to buy a transport dog crate or a dog kennel with the function to “close” it. To see the right transport dog crate for you, visit, I have mentioned there couple of main points, how you should buy the right kennel for your dog.

Transport dog crates and kennels, must have good ventilation, you don’t like to sit in a smelly room, do you ? So does the dog, so make sure the kennel is easy to ventilate. Choose kennels with windows, as I mentioned above, the best transport dog crates and kennels are the ones, that reveals your dog less. But windows is a must, why ?
