All over the USA and around the world happy dogs are traveling in their Ruff Tough Kennels. Their kennel may be in the back seat or behind the second row of seats in your SUV.
The rear of this new SUV kennel now matches the design of most SUV 2nd row seats. This allows the kennels, and dogs, to be closer to you. One of the biggest benefits is the additional space between the kennel(s) and the rear door.
The kennels are now up against the back of the 2nd-row seats. They are as far forward as they can go. Doesn't that appear to be a safer location for your dogs?
When and why would the Ruff Tough Kennels Intermediate Double Door Left Side entry be relevant? This photo says it all. Both Intermediates, 1 Left Side Entry and 1 Right Side Entry with coupler kit. Although the image shows the kennels in the back of a truck, they will fit the same way in your SUV. For larger vehicles, these beautiful kennels stack nicely.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, let's take a closer look at these great kennels. You will understand what we mean when we use words like strong, rugged, sturdy, durable and high performance in a plastic dog kennel.
When dropped from a height of 12 feet the Ruff Tough Kennel sustained no noticeable damage. We kept trying. After four drops the kennel showed only scratches and stains from the concrete and grass. No splits or cracks were evident.
The Ruff Tough Kennel was fired at with a full choke charge of number 6's from about 15 paces. Even to my surprise only a handful of pellets penetrated. The rest buried in the material. I was satisfied that it would provide maximum protection from a few errant pellets in a hunting situation.
I am not easily impressed with new equipment, but the simplicity of design and quality of manufacturing immediately caught my attention. I've owned and used dozens of portable kennels and have always looked for one that could withstand the abuse of trainers, handlers, and guides. Finally, something new that should get dog trainers and hunters excited.
These test results should lead one to understand that this crate, used for hunting, transport or at home, will deliver strength and durability unmatched by other plastic dog kennels and perhaps some steel crates as well.
Please note: Weights are approximate. The Large and X-Large kennels incurr additional shipping cost due to size. While freight charges are not entirely free on the Large and X-Large kennels, CarryMyDog.com charges only half the actual freight cost. The Small, Medium and Intermediate kennels ship free.
This video will assist you in choosing the kennel that is correct for your dog.
NOTE: This video describes size selection when the crate is primarily used for transport. If you intend to use the kennel at home, we recommend you get a larger kennel for the benefit and comfort of your dog since your dog will probably be spending more time in the crate while at home. Our suggestion for proper sizing is to measure from your dog's nose to base of the tail then add inches for comfort. Select your size from the drop down menu. Sizing is so important for your dog's comfort and because returns for exchange can be expensive.
This short video will show the kennel floor feature. I like to call it the "high and dry" floor design.
