Orvis Collapsible Dog Travel Crate
(4 out of 5)
The Orvis Collapsible Dog Travel Crate offers a folding option for dogs too strong for a soft-sided crate.
May 5, 2011 11:33 am | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.
The convenience of a flexible, collapsible travel crate for large dogs often has one drawback — the material is too flexible for strong dogs and power chewers who can rip through the mesh as easily as a soft training treat. For owners of these pooches who have sturdy teeth and paws, Orvis has come up with an even sturdier travel crate option: the Collapsible Dog Travel Crate.
The Orvis Collapsible Dog Travel Crate features a heavy plastic top and steel grid doors, no surprise for a hard, durable travel crate. But the Orvis also offers the option of folding the crate so that you can store it easily in your home — or just leave it in the back of your car, throwing all your other gear on top of it when it’s not in use.
And the Orvis Collapsible Dog Travel Crate also includes other convenient touches, such as built-in wheels to make it easier for you to get the crate from home to car to campground and back again. Also, the crate comes with its own very comfy fleece crate pad and a sturdy, handled carrying case for use when the crate is folded.
Of course, all this convenience and smart design comes at a price—over $300 for a large crate that will stand up to dogs over 60 lbs. (the crate is also available in small and medium sizes). But if your dog has cheerily worked his way through a few soft-sided crates, you may find that over time, the investment pays off.
Pros: Easy to store, folds and travels easily.
Cons: Expensive option for a travel crate.
