Abo Gear Dog Digs Portable Crate For Dogs
(5 out of 5)
The Dog Digs Portable Crate is durable, easy-to-use, and affordable.
May 5, 2011 9:52 am | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.
A large dog travel crate that is both easy to carry and comfortable for your dog, the Dog Digs Portable Crate for Dogs from ABO Gear is also quite affordable for the quality of the product.
The large-sized version of this portable crate is appropriate for dogs up to 100 lbs. If you have a giant pooch on your hands who doesn’t meet that weight limit, you may not be able to find a portable, fold-down crate regardless, as most crates of this type have a cutoff that’s even lower – about 70 lbs. or so. And a large-sized dog (or two smaller dogs who like to travel together!) can fit comfortably within the interior.
One of the most impressive features of the Dog Digs Portable Crate is the ease with which the product assembles to begin with – and the ease with which one can store and pack the crate, then unpack it and set it up again for trips or camping. When compactly tucked into its travel bag, the crate weighs just over 10 lbs. – a manageable size for even those of us who aren’t strong bodybuilder-types.
For such an easy-to-store, easy-to-disassemble travel crate, the Dog Digs Portable Crate is surprisingly durable, featuring sturdy, rugged material, and a steel frame with reinforced corners. And the design touches of the Dog Digs Portable Crate keep both the dog and the owner in mind. The crate has a side and top opening so that your pooch can look out in transit or when at a scenic camping vista, and two storage pockets for keeping your dog gear close at hand.
The competitive price – just $100 during some online sales – makes this durable, easy-to-use crate a true bargain.
Pros: Sturdy, easy to pack and unpack; high weight limit for dogs - up to 100 lbs.

this is by far the best soft folding crate out there. most "collapsable" crates just have the two long walls fold down so the whole thing is still as wide as the kennel. this crate, however, actually collapses and folds much like a folding chair, and it fits into a bag (included) that is no bigger than 8x8 inches. it has two doors so when you put it in the back of your car, the dog can get in thru the side (wide), and if you have a smaller dog, you can just open the top and drop him in. it is made of very durable nylon and it comes with a mat that velcros on to the tubing so it stays in place (and is comfortable - crate still fits in the bag with the bed attached). one of the better investments you can make, especially if you travel a lot or go to a lot of shows and competitions.
Pros: Folds into a bag
