Description

The Full Ventilation Two Door Crate features ventilation on all four sides PLUS two doors. This crate was designed with air movement in mind and this is a great feature for those dogs that must remain in their kennel all day. Having two doors on the crate allows you to position it differently in vehicles or other places for an easier access to get in and out. Compare to the Full Ventilation Crate with only one door.

It is costly to produce a crate of this style because of the time it takes to weld each and every bar; that is why you don't see many aluminum full ventilation crates on the market.

The gap between the bars on the crate is 2.5 inches. Most inside wheel-well measurements in trucks, vans, and SUVs are 48" wide. This way you can fit any two of the small crates we offer in your vehicle side-by-side.

The top and bottom of the crate are polished solid aluminum diamond plate tread brite that is then powder-coated. The door is made with double layers and it is reinforced. The exterior of the door is also the polished diamond plate tread brite aluminum that is powder-coated. This is a very nice looking crate.

There is a one inch lip/edge around the inside of the bottom of the crate, so if your dog gets sick or has an accident while traveling the liquids are contained inside of the crate. This is much easier to clean up than having to clean out the floor of your truck or SUV.

Each side panel of the crate has two recessed handles which are a great feature. When the handles are not in use they fold down to be flush with the side of the kennel. This feature makes carrying the crate safe because you do not have to put your hands in through the bars to move the crate.

There is a welded bar inside the crate side wall to hang a flat sided pail (sold separately). This prevents the dog from tipping over it's water so easily, therefore having a dry kennel to lie in while traveling or at training.

This crate is solid construction with a stainless steel locking door latch. The door can close and latch without being locked but you do have the option of locking the crate if desired.

The crate comes fully assembled and is Tig Welded.

Perks of aluminum materials and TIG welded

Aluminum for dog crates and kennels is the perfect material because it is lightweight, strong, does not rust. Best of all does not absorb the suns heat! All of the crates we offer are aluminum welded by the TIG welding process. TIG welding is a very difficult welding to do and is the welding process that we use because it is the strongest aluminum weld. TIG welding is also known as GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding). TIG welding is a high quality welding process that is used when a precision welding process is required. To do TIG welding it requires a special TIG welding machine. Many welders can weld steel but aluminum welding takes many years of experience to master. These crates are constructed by a master welder with 28 years experience.

Suggested Linings

To line the floor of the crates here at Leerburg Kennels, we use thick rubber mats cut to the size of the crates. They provide a softer surface for the dogs to lay on, and the dogs don't chew on them.

If you are ordering a Rubber Kennel Mat to be placed inside of a crate, please keep in mind that the kennel mat must be cut to the exact specifications of the internal measurement of the crate. For example, a 36x24 Full Ventilation Aluminum crate will use a 34x22 kennel mat due to the inside measurement of the crate.

The quality of this crate is second to none. Well built and worth every penny. I'm a very picky person as well as a perfectionist and I have gone over this crate a hundred times and it could not be built any better. Not to mention it only took 5 days to arrive to my door instead of the 1-2 weeks stated.

We currently have a rescue boxer/pit mix living with us for training prior to her adoption. Her second day with us we discovered she had separation anxiety issues and she quickly broke out of a regular dog crate. We have another heavy duty crate that we switched her to. While she could not escape from this crate we discovered some design flaws that allowed the dog to push the flooring out leaving her standing between the support bars for the floor. Fearing that she was going to hurt herself we ordered the full vent aluminum 2 door crate. We absolutely love it. It is very well built. There's no way this dog is escaping from this crate. So there is no worry that she will get out and cause damage nor do we worry about her hurting herself trying to escape. We also ordered the heavy duty rubber mat to go along with the crate. We highly recommend this product.

Portable AND well constructed. I am a bit concerned about the gap below the door, which could end up getting a foot trapped or a jaw if the dog ever flips the crate over.
Overall very satisfied with this product, with your prompt service and your kind telephone associates. (I'm thinking the UPS man will be getting a batch of cookies for lugging 2 of these things up onto my porch).
I do have a bit of an issue with your somewhat dismissive attitude toward veterinarians in your "dogs that break out of crates" article. I AM dog trainer, and mainly work as an ER vet (although I like my job and it is a good fit) to support my dog training habit. I agree that most veterinarians are not trainers or behaviorists. We should, by necessity, have some knowledge of drives and training to help our clients who often do not want to "do the work" (training OR spending time and $ consulting a behaviorist) and instead demand a magic pill to solve their pets' behavioral problems. The bad news for them: THERE ISN'T ONE. This is not what clients want to hear, but after stitching up countless animals after fights I'm not inclined to sugar coat it.
However, there is no possible way a veterinarian can spend enough time consulting with people to solve these problems in a 20 minute appointment...that was made for some other problem! We DO refer people...it's just that very often people do not want referral. It's not like most of us don't make an effort. Yes, there are some veterinarians who "can't be bothered," but that isn't most of them. Your disparaging tone toward the profession is a little bothersome. Just sayin'. OK, sorry to hijack the review of the rather excellent crate I just obtained from y'all! :))
