A good price for a very useful piece of kit for any dog owner. Not sure how strong the nylon clips are, but for this price you could easily replace them with maybe a padlock or something. We paid more than this for our dog crate and that was second hand off ebay.
Suitable for small and medium sized dogs
Made from mild steel wire with nylon clips on doors and ends
Complete with 2 doors and fully fitted tray
Flat-packed
Dimensions: 76 x 56 x 61cm (L x W x H)

For when your bitch is outta control !

How many kids can this take, is it sound proof, is it any good for cage fighting?!

Banned

Crikey.... looks like a freakin' prison!

I hate these things, just can't understand why anyone would want to put their dog in one?

Our dogs love their crate, it is their space and very often go there of their own volition to get away from the chaos of the house.

They are definitely not as awful as they look.

Our dogs love them too. the doors are always open and they regards it as "their space"

mams dog loves her too, its her refuge when i take my three children round!! oO it was the only place she would sleep until she discovered the bottom of the bed!

we have one for our dog shes in there at the moment with her puppies she loves having her own space
the door is always open

looks good

Was recommended we buy a crate by the Rspca when we adopted a puppy from them as dogs see this as their safe space.

Your dog will see this as a natural den and will love it as a place of security. It is not meant as a punishment but it will help with house training etc as your pup will not want to mess in the crate. When you go out if the pup goes in the crate at least you know he is not biting wires and cables or eating something dangerous which pups do.
Being consistent from day one and giving them their own time in the crate is key to making it work and you wont look back.

Another thumbs up for a dog crate, my 14yr old dog has started to use it again to escape the 1yr old dog!

Great things for training and giving a dog their own 'den', certainly not cruel at all. The young dog only needs a look from me when he has done something wrong and he walks in and gives himself a timeout.

Agree with this 100% our Jack Russell Rolo has had one since we have had him , he always sleeps in the crate and we can lock him away if we need to clean the floors etc.

He was fully toilet trained at 9months and always goes to his crate when he's tired lol

The deals ok but you could get a cheaper one at your local market i would imagine.

Voted hot for the discussion.

Very useful for the newborn though

Never previously used a crate, but the dog that we've had for the last 3 years or so has had one pretty much from day 1. It's very much her quiet space and is completely comfortable with being in it at night time. In fact, on the very odd occasion where she hasn't used it overnight, you can see that she's more distressed. Always recommend to use one if you've got the space - get one with plenty of room for the dog to move around a bit though.

Gives them a comfortable place to hide when they are tired and serves as a way of stopping them damaging things or biting the postman when you're out.

Both my dogs love theirs and spend a few hours a day in there without being told to.

How many kids can this take


2 medium sized ones. You can squeeze more in, but they have to be dismembered first.
You may find a chest freezer a better option as this is also sound proofed. They keep better too.

We have borrowed one of these for my cat who is currently undergoing chemotherapy and not a well cat at all. He regularly goes in there to escape my two boisterous kids (aged 3 and 4 so big enough to be rough and noisy, but not really big enough to comprehend for long that they need to be calm and quiet around the cat) and we always make sure he is in it for overnight or if we go out as he is likely to vomit everywhere otherwise. He is also too ill to be trusted to wander around the house as he is likely to stumble and hurt himself. Have just asked DH if we are paying to hire ours from the vets as it may just be simpler to buy one of these. Thanks for the post.

where can i get something for my Akita?

Really good price & I'd highly recommend it as my 10 years old dog had one since day one, and he loved it! Door r always open unless when I have to clean the floor or some DIY! My last one from argues lasted 10 years!

You obviously saw the picture and went straight to put your post up. If you read the thread then you would understand why crates are an excellent buy.

might buy one of these to keep my mum in, cheaper than a padded room

our puppies (aged 3 months and 10 months) love their crate. it is their bed, their hide away and great for putting them in whilst I clean up, or if we have small children round and the dogs nead a break. It is also brilliant for toilet training as they wont want to mess their bed. We have one in the car to transport them safely when we are out and a bigger one in the kitchen. you can get them new off ebay for a similar price.

Very useful for when travelling in the car , my father in laws dogs will not travel unless they are in their crates.
Voted hot , i will be getting one for my small dog.

Thanks OP, I've been looking for a new baby cage. As this is collapsible it'll be perfect to take on holiday and leave our little'un in when we're at the bar!

no i didnt i hate to see dogs in cages,

Sometimes I'm amazed by the ignorance of people on here. My eight month old puppy has a crate and often will voluntarily go into it. Anyone making comments like yours clearly has no understanding of dogs. You are looking at it from a human perspective. From a dogs point of view this can be their den, a place for peace and rest. Most people using these will very rarely even close the door, there's no need as the dog likes to be in there.

I don't have strong feelings either way, but I'm yet to be convinced. We don't have one, and I would class our dog's bed as his space, so I'm not sure why you'd need the cage on top of that. If we need to keep him out of the way, we shut him in a room. I can see why you might want to keep a puppy in one though so that they don't chew things. At the end of the day, it's what a dog's used to so as long as they're happy in it, and not kept in there whilst the owners are out for the day - that's something I do have issues with.

Very true. It had our puppy house trained in two weeks. Whether we will use it all the time as she gets older I'm not sure. I would hope we can just give her a bed. Would want to keep her used to a crate though, very useful for vets etc. Our puppy strained a muscle and we have hd to use the crate to force her to rest. I get really mad when some people make I'll informed comments about 'dog prisons' though.

Ours is covered by a blanket. That's why it is more comfortable than a bed. It's just a bit more private for them.

Pretty much what I was going to post when my internet went down (_;)

My dogs have a bed in almost every room of the house, they need their own designated space or they will not settle down. I like them to be free to go around the house when we're all out. I can see these cages are useful for pups who are being destructive, but I personally think they're the "easy option" as training a dog is very time consuming. Very ugly thing to have in your home too (_;)

Someone I used to know bought a dog after being burgled, then promptly put it in a cage, where it was actually locked in every time I saw it oO What is the point in that?!

Yeah just like using a washing machine is taking the easy option for washing clothes!

We used one of these for 6 weeks to toilet train our pup and they are fantastic. During the day, she would go inside for a nap or rest.

Yes, except I love my dogs and enjoyed the time spent training them.

Somehow I never felt the same way about the washing, so the machine is in a class of it's own here

Horses for courses and all that jayok

I have a crate but still spend loads of training time with our puppy. The crate just made toilet training much easier, and I can't say I missed having to clean up after the puppy all the time. The crate pretty much stopped an messes in th house from the day we started using it.

We have a Chihuahua that we let come into the bed when we first got it and now we can't get it out!! tried all sorts but yaps away til we give in through tiredness... aah well wasn't doing much else in bed

My pup didnt need a crate for toilet training and is 6 months now and fully potty and wee trained. I however believe a crate is necessary in the home as dogs are denb animals, a cushion or rug on one side of the room isnt enough..sometimes they want shade so hide under the table as we all must have noticed at some time or another..now not providing a den like shelter ie a crate in my opinion is unfair on the dog. Let the dog choose when it goes in to relax and when it comes out to play, leave the door open and then its not a prison anymore.
