    Default What is a good size travel kennel to buy?

    Hi everyone, have already purchased Lucy's kennel for inside the house but if we take her somewhere to visit relatives she will need a travel one that she can sleep in while she is with us. I am unsure of what size would be appropriate that she could possibly grow into as an adult. Any help would be appreciated very much.

    My 2 English Bulldogs are too strong for travel kennels. They're even too strong for the plastic non-travel ones. Bullie, especially. She can just ram right through the gate and pop the metal off the plastic.

    When we travel, we fold up and take their regular metal kennels with us.

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    But a Kennel that is collapsible, with the divider in it, that way you can use it now, and it can 'expand' with her, and then when you travel (by car I am thinking) you can fold it down and have it with you no need for multiple kennels this way

    Excellent idea! We always travel with a collapsible crate, but the divider crate was what we used when our dogs were younger.

    Aubie has a Petnation Port-A-Crate for going to work with me or going on trips:

    Name:  crate.jpg

    It has a soft but durable bottom. They call it a "no-fabric" crate, its like a mix of canvas and something... but Aubie's clawed it to death and it barely even has scratches. The door and windows are mesh and it has a front door and a top door (which of course we don't use with a 45lb bully!). It folds down and has a carrying handle. We got it because we were taking her on a trip and didn't want a heavy metal crate to carry, and this one was light and easy to carry. It's easy to put up and take down too- you unfold the sides and interlock a metal pole on each side and it's good to go. I think Aubie has either the large or extra large size, we got it off of Amazon.

    Really glad you posted this. We're going away this summer, and I also wasn't thrilled about taking Blue's metal crate with us.
    Just ordered it on Amazon.
    Thanks for sharing.
