What type of crate do you all use when you go to Agility classes or shows?

Amy,

I've been doing agility for a couple years now and I still haven't found my "perfect" crate. My best advice to you is to go to shows and look around. Most people seem to like the soft sided crates... they are light weight and easy to set up. I've been looking at them but can't decide which I like best. I've been using a small metal crate that I can fold for transport. I like that it is very secure with two door latches. At bigger, longer trials I use a large oversized exercise pen along with my crate. That way Chessie can move around more and I can sit in there with her.

You can do a search of this site... I know I've asked the same question before and got some great ideas...

Good luck... and keep us posted on your progress!

Here's the one I'm currently using:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004ZU ... ge_o05_s00

It's easy to set up, and has lots of windows for ventilation. However, if your dog doesn't like being crated, you'd probably want to go with a metal crate for security. Any soft-sided crate is going to be easy to scratch or chew through for a determined dog.

well I like the look of the canvas crates, it will have to be a wire crate for Tannen, per previous owner said that he knows how to escape and roll a canvas one... so wire crate for us.

Amy,

Try to find one that has a handle. My nicer for transport.

I bought two Ovation crates from Pet Street Mall and they seem okay.
