Every Queen Needs Her Throne…

…& a collapsible, pop-out bed! 🙂
So when I saw this at Target, we just had to have it. It is a Pop-Open Dog Kennel from SportPet. We use it all of the time; it is perfect for travel, camping, etc. It pops out to a nice, light & roomy bed for my little girl, but collapses down to the size of a dinner plate!
It comes in various sizes: we ended up with a large because she could not stand in the small, & they did not have a medium. Measure your dog first to determine an appropriate size; also, the listed measurements of the pop outs are not exact, so round them down.
For only $25, this was a worthy purchase for us – even if collapsing it seems to be an acquired art – pay close attention the first time you pop it open. It does get easier even if never effortless.
Keep in mind; it should only be used for crate-trained dogs & non-chewers. Anxious dogs & this crate may not do well together. Like I mentioned, it is extremely light & not necessarily uber durable; it could easily be ripped, flipped &/or destroyed [for only $25, you can’t expect it to withstand canine teeth, claws & rambunctiousness, right?].
When researching anything, I suggest paying more attention to reviews with low ratings. You will learn a lot more about a product from those who do not like it – I rarely give any credit to 5 star-ers – & determine if those are concerns for you. This crate not holding up to anxious/rambunctious dogs & puppies seems to be the biggest complaint.
We really lucked out our angel is so perfect 😉 Just a little spastic & hyper-friendly sometimes; seriously, that is her flaw: she is too friendly & loves everybody. Are we really going to deem this a flaw? Even if she does not always love being in her crate, she is a pretty good girl about it. Once though, she actually unzipped it. Wiley minx 😉
