what car?

We will also be producing separate pages for each car manufacturer, to include sizes which will fit your car, information about how long the crate can be adjusted to (where we have this information) and pictures of the crates which will fit your car (where possible with dogs in situ to give you a better picture.

We are going to start separating out the pages for hatchback crates and standard crates. If you have a hatchback car you would need one of the hatchback crates. But if you have a hatchback car, an estate car, and a dog small enough to fit in the hatchback crate then you could buy the hatchback crate which would fit in both cars.

Not all models of car will fit the crate, and sometimes that even changes within the model itself - for example the Kia Sportage 2005 doesn't fit the medium double crate whereas the Sportage 2007 will do!

If you wish to buy a dog cage we would be happy to go to a local dealership to measure your chosen car if it's not on the list. That's easy with new cars - not so easy with older models. However we can do a check on local second hand cars if they're available to view.

Detailed below are instructions for measuring your vehicle to check which dog box (if any) would fit.

Instructions measuring vehicle for safedog crates:

  • Measure in metric (we've included approximate imperial measurements as many of us still think in 'old money')
  • Check to see if your car has a sill in the back by the boot door. If the sill is taller than about 2 centimetres, you might have to put something below the crate, in order for the doors to be able to be opened.
  • The floor in the car should be even for the car crate to stand well.
  • Measure the widest point of the luggage boot which is possible to put the crate in. The boot door or between the wheel arches are usually the narrowest point.
  • Then measure the length of the luggage boot floor. Mind that the boot door might be a little rounded. In that case, measure the shortest point, i.e. not in the middle of the car.
  • The slope of the front and back of the crate is approximately the same as the slope of the backseat. The roof of the crate is about 15 centimetres narrower than the floor.
  • Maximum height is measured from the floor to the lowest point of the opening of the boot.
