soft crates

Please note that any fabric crate is only suitable for those dogs which are content within a crate.

Soft sided crates are growing in popularity every day!
This is because not only are they attractive, and are supplied with their own carry-bag, but they weigh substantially less than their wire counterparts.
Because of the cloth walls, they also give more privacy to the dog, which may be important with a nervous or, indeed, agressive dog.
This privacy may also be a factor whilst travelling - a closed environment tends to protect somewhat from car sickness.
HOWEVER please do remember that the crate is basically a cloth, so if your dog chews, or if it is unused to being crated and tries to get out, it will undoubtedly tear the crate, making it unusable. Sadly, but we hope understandably, we cannot be held responsible should this occur.
Nevertheless, many owners do prefer these soft, attractive crates.If you are any doubt about the suitability of a soft crate, then please telephone us describing your concern. In such cases we will probably recommend a wire crate. These are available in several designs, the lightest of which is the Croft Alpine range.
