Carriers & Crates
We carry a selection of crates and carriers for dogs of all ages and sizes from trusted canine companies including Hagen Pet Products, NoztoNoz, Outward Hound, Pet Lodge, and Petmate. The size of the crate or carrier that you choose for your dog largely depends on the dog's size. The crate should be big enough for your dog to comfortably stand, lie down, and turn around; a crate or carrier that is significantly larger will not offer the same sense of security for your dog.
Many of the carriers that we stock in-store and online are airline compliant as well. Some carriers are appropriate for carrying your pet onto the plane with you. Whether your dog will be riding in the cargo hold or in the cabin, make sure that you refer to the airline's individual standards to ensure that your carrier will be acceptable for air travel.
Some owners and dogs also choose to utilize crates when the dog is alone and unsupervised. This keeps the dog safely contained and prevents them from harming themselves in your home. Once your dog has been properly crate trained, they understand that their crate is a safe sanctuary which provides them security and comfort. Consider lining your crate with a crate pad or a soft blanket if your dog will be spending long hours in the crate.
Whether you use them in your home or on the go, a dog carrier or crate keeps your dog safe and contained. If you have questions about crate and carrier sizing or would like assistance selecting the right crate for your dog, we encourage you to connect with a member of our knowledgeable, dog-loving sales staff.
