The metric measurements are accurate. The imperial measurements are approximate for those of us who still think in feet and inches!

what size do I need?

The car lists on the What Car? pages should tell you what size crate would fit in your car. Then it depends on the size of your dogs. So if you have a Ford Mondeo estate it will take the larger crates, but if you have one labrador then a Single Large crate would be the one to choose. We can advise on crate size, based on our experience. We have pictures of dogs in crates to give you some idea of sizing. We also have pictures, where available, of various dogs in crates in cars, seen on the individual vehicle pages accessed from the What Car? page. There is a chart which details further measurements which you may find useful. Click here to download.


  Single Crates
We offer four sizes of single crate for cars without a lip. The Single Extra Large (pictured left) takes up about two thirds of the boot space in a Ford Mondeo and would be suitable for a large rottweiler, Rhodesian Ridgeback or similar size dog.

  Mini Max Crate
The newest single crate on offer is the Mini Max. It's designed to go in the back of estate cars, people carriers or 4x4s but has been designed with the bars closer together so it's more suitable for smaller dogs. If you have a chihuahua, pug, Yorkshire terrier or other small dog then this is one of the crates to look at.

 

Double Crates
We offer five sizes of double crate. The X Large is our most popular crate (pictured left) and fits in the Ford Focus Estate, Mondeo Estate, Vauxhall Astra Estate, Volvo V70, Volvo XC70, Volvo XC90, Mercedes E Class, Hyundai Santa Fe, Isuzu Trooper 5 door, Nissan Terrano II, amongst many others. We have this model in our own car to protect our dobermann and our golden retriever.

Smaller cars can usually accommodate our smaller double crates, but it often depends on the year of manufacture, so please contact us if you're not sure if a crate will fit your model.

  Hatchback Crates
We offer two sizes of hatchback crate. Like the other crates pictured above they extend in size to fit the length of your bootspace, but the crate doors open further up, to allow clearance of the lip in hatchback cars (or bigger cars such as the Qashqai which have a lip/sill in the back).

OLD crate sizes
We have now sold out of the 2G 'old style' crates. The sizes are listed below for reference in case anyone is looking to purchase a second hand 2G crate from the used crate page.
