I really need a soft crate for agility (preferably 2). Just because 2 dogs going to the same class means 2 trips for crates and stuff. The only problem is the one time I bought a soft crate for Mia she 1. Rolled it around the old agility field. I set it up on the sideline for Summer's class and then looked behind me to see Mia doing a hamster ball out to come join us.... 2. Rolled it around my house. 3. Unzipped it. 4. Ate through the mesh door once I tied the zipper together.

I need something with a little more weight on it. And Mia proof. Any ideas?

I'd probably just use little plastic verikennels (or similar). That's what I use for puppies til they outgrow them. They double as car crates for me...even with the sedan I could bungee them into the backseat.

Since I'm apparently on a crate picture roll...here's Mira in hers as a pup lol. This crate is a touch smaller than a Varikennel 100

This is timely because I need a larger soft sided crate for traveling with Squash. I ordered a Noz2Noz off of Amazon, and if it sucks it's ALL SHAI'S FAULT.

Thanks guys! I will definitely take a look around at all of those and see which ones I can mostly easily get around here and which ones I like best.

And thanks for the pictures, Shai!

Izzie is bound to a medium vari kennel because she tears and or unzips soft kennels. Otherwise she's in a smaller wire for trials if we can't fit the vari.

I'm pretty sure the warning label on softcrates reads "Does not contain Canine Kryptonite. Is not guaranteed to hold Superdog."

Yeah I started using a vari-kennel as well as a wire crate. I was bringing my two wire crates but one is about lab-sized so that wasn't great. My smaller wire crate doesn't collapse anymore either.

Have you considered those new ezydog ones for your dogs? If I had a tiny dog I would.

I went and molested the natures miracle crates at PetSmart tonight and gave them a resounding "meh". The hunt continues.

Walmart.com http://www.walmart.com/ip/Petnation-...ndingMethod=rr

Same makers of N2N. Half the price. The biggest they make is a 36" though.
