About our products
Got a question about our dog cages, here are some of our most frequently asked questions about them.
No special fitment, it is just a case of lifting it into your vehicle; if you require them, we also have a range of anchorage straps that can be found in detail on our accessory page. All our cages have integral anchorage points built into them.
This is a difficult one as it depends very much on the size of your dogs, and as we all know individual breeds vary quite dramatically in size! The length of your regular journeys and what you, and they, are comfortable with should also be considered. As a quick guide check the gallery pictures for each cage and you will see various breeds to give you a better idea of the size. If you’re still unsure then give us a call and we will give you honest and impartial advice.
Weights of each dog box are shown clearly on the website. They are awkward rather than heavy due to their bulky shape; in most cases double cages can be lifted by one person, but depending on ability a second person may be required!
Despite claims made by other manufacturers about the lightness of their products, interestingly only a few show the weights on their websites; perhaps they are just not as light as they would have you believe?
According to one competitor the answer is yes. But ask any one of our 40,000 customers globally and they will tell you a quite different story. We have cages in daily use in the most worlds challenging environments - from Dubai to Iceland, California USA to the Fen’s of Lincolnshire.
Our cages have full sized mesh doors and large ventilation panels all around which help with airflow; additional air circulation can be obtained by fitting one of our Airflow fans.
The ambient temperature inside the vehicle is what determines the temperature inside your cage, whether made from aluminium, white fibreglass, black plastic or another material; so if the inside of your vehicle is warm, or hot, that’s what your dog will be experiencing also.
Most fortunately, with modern vehicles it is easy to control internal temperatures; air conditioning, climate control and privacy glass all play a valid part - as does common sense. Remember sadly DOGS DIE IN HOT CARS irrespective of cage manufacturer.
