Description

This is a premium crate with full tread-brite construction through out. It is a beautiful thing to behold. This is a substantial piece of equipment, and is TIG welded. This crate has extra protective bar to the outside of this crate. This not only makes the crates airline approved, but also adds security and strength.

This crate is recommended for those buying a crate for dogs with high anxiety levels. The thickness of this crate is 1/8", which is double the thickness of some of the other aluminum crates. If you dog has a history of being destructive towards other heavy-duty crates, this crate would be an ideal choice over the 1/16" thick crates.

The crate is made from 1/8” thick tread-brite finish aluminum, which is extremely thick for crate construction. All sides of the crate have good ventilation. You can see the dog from all four sides of this crate. Both side panels have two recessed handles which are a great feature. When the handles are not in use they fold down to be flush with the sides of the kennel. It has a laser cut, double reinforced locking door with stainless steel locking latch. This latch is an upscale recessed stainless steel keyed latch. Stainless is the only was to go with any latch as they will not corrode or rust. The crate can be locked or unlocked without loosing the function of the door latch.

The crate comes fully assembled.

Dimensions

  • Medium - 36" L x 24" W x 28" T
  • Large - 42" L x 28" W x 32" T

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.

Bought this product?

I give this 5 stars because I have spent way more than this on traditional metal-wire crates. I have working German shepherds and 2 of my dogs as youngsters had gone through 5 different crates and broken teeth, cut feet, etc breaking out of them. As far as I'm concerned this is a great product. It will last me for every pup I crate train probably for the rest of my life.

The only negative is that it is extremely heavy, and I am not able to move it from home to vehicle. That isn't a huge deal for me since the dog is only crated in a vehicle waiting on his turn for training so it's not for very long.

My dog and my house are safe while I am away, and I should have purchased this many years ago. Wonderful product.

We adopted a border collie mix in 2006 who started showing separation anxiety within two weeks. After our shepherd died the separation anxiety became very severe to the point that he could not be left alone anywhere. He ate the Subaru four times. Destroyed both the VeriKennel and a metal crate within minutes. Doggie Prozac didn't work. After the fourth frenzy my husband suggested getting a more robust crate. After weeks of searching we decided upon the Leerburg Aluminum Crate, impressed with the welding, piano hinges, and the strong construction. Even in the back of the pickup, in the sun, it doesn't overheat but the well-thought-out construction allows for plenty of venting and shading. Even though the dog has tried to get out he now knows that this is his safe zone. Between this and the ThunderShirt we are able to give him some relief during his high anxious times. My only change would be to have two hinges on the door as that is the weakest point and has taken a beating (yet still held!).

We are very happy with our purchase. This is pretty much, as far as I am concerned, the best you can get. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for" and yes, you do pay for it, but it is everything and more. We have a dog with severe separation anxiety that broke out of every crate and cage we had... some we weren't even quite sure how he got out. He would get out and destroy things and hurt himself scratching through trim and getting into nails. This was our last hope to keep him secure and safe while we were gone. I now have a piece of mind while I am at work. This helps us as we continue to work with him to make being away from us not such a scary thing.

Leerburg was very helpful on the phone and very responsive to getting back with me on questions. They also had some suggestions of materials to read on separation anxiety which were free on their website. I plan to check out more of their products. I am very happy with this company.

One really cool thing about this crate is that there is a piece covering the lock when you close the door so he can't pick the lock (seriously, with him you never know). I was wondering about this before I bought it and was happy to see the construction of this when it arrived.

As for delivery, when they tell you it will take 2 weeks, believe me it will. We only live a state over and the crate shipped out fast and was 40 miles from my house for over a week at the trucking company docks. I had called the delivery company several times to see if we could schedule an appointment but they never called me back. Eventually, at the final day of the 2 weeks, I got a call from the delivery driver. He said he would be at my house soon. Thank goodness he agreed to leave it in my garage without signature.

The only item I wish was different was that you only get one key with the crate. I will have more made but until I get that done, I have to be very careful of where I place the key.
