We all know that dogs love their dog crates. A dog views his crate a their very own den -- a familiar place, with their favorite dog beds and toys, where they can get away when they need a little peace, quiet and won’t be bothered.  So, what do you do when you are on the road with your dog and are unable to pack along their favorite dog crate? You bring along one of these handy, soft dog crates. These portable dog crates provide a dog with the comforts of home while on the road and are “win” for both pet and owners alike.  From the dog’s viewpoint, he’s getting his very own portable den and “get away” spot, whether camping outdoors, staying in a hotel or visiting friends and family.  As a pet owner, you are getting a quick and easy solution and way to contain your pet, keeping them calm and quiet in unfamiliar surroundings when they may otherwise get stressed or aggitated. These dog crates are quick to set up and take down and, best of all, when you’re ready to get back on the road, they fold down and pack into convenient totes or carry cases. Most portable dog crates are soft sided, however some styles look more like a dog tent. You will want to avoid the soft variety, however, if your dog is very young and still loves digging and chewing, or if your dog is especially destructive.
