Dog folk - soft travel crate recommendation please?
The last one I had lasted a year, with light use It was a Nature's Miracle from Petsmart, (what can I say, I needed one fast and there aren't a lot of options locally) and the hinges on the floor snapped.
I have a Lab, 21" at the shoulder and not at all hyper or destructive. Her home crate is a 36" Vari-Kennel. We're getting into showing, so it needs to be sturdy enough to do what it's supposed to do - be set up and collapsed repeatedly. I don't want to spend the earth, but I'll pay for quality.
This is the travel crate brand I have for my Chesapeake Bay Retriever. She measures 21" as well, I think (her AKC agility jump height was 24", if that helps). I think I got one size bigger than they say you need, but we are in Florida and I wanted a little more room for air flow at trials. Easy to carry and set up, durable. I love it.
