I really like the one from clean run because it folds into a little circle like a laundry basket!

I had a similar one from target years ago. Those are the type of crate that becomes the dreaded hamster ball. By not having a real frame they flip and flop and aren't worth 5 cents, let alone the $20 or so they go for.

Yeah I have one of those just because it was about $10 at the time and I could tuck it into my sedan and have it in case I really needed it...but...then I used it at the one dock diving event we competed in and Mira totally did the hamster ball thing when I tried to leave to go to the restroom...looked back and there she came...lol

So Kim is afraid of it (too much movement), Webster would destroy it in an instant, and Mira hamster balls it. Not very helpful.

Want it for your puppy when she grows up? lol

Oh the other thing I like about DogDigs crates besides the price and durability is also fit-everything-in-a-sedan-related: they fold into a cylinder instead of flat so fit beautifully in the backseat footwells, which kept them out of the way and (bonus!) gave the dogs an extra foot or so of useable space since two stacked came up about flush with the back seats. A very handy thing when three dogs are riding in the back of a sedan several times a week.

That said I'm really glad to have the little SUV/crossover thing now...

Yeah the collapsible crates are the ones I would avoid. Both my dogs hamster balled ours then Mia ate through it.

I have one that I've had for a few years. It's the same quality as a N2N...I have one of those too.

Well Squash approves of his N2N. And so do I. So Shai's off the hook.

I mean, uh, of course Squash approves! He is a dog of good taste after all!

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

The Petnation crate is the one they have at Costco (in the 36" size only), and it's a good crate. I had some from Walmart, and I now have one from Costco. 36" is kind of ridiculously large for my dog, but that's okay.

I had 2 Nature's Miracle ones, they were garbage and ruined within a week with very little use. The frame broke.

I like the Noz2Noz ones but DogDigs is by far my favorite. They are durable and I like how they fold up in comparison to the others, plus the straps on the carry bag are large enough to wear backpack style, great when moving a ton of gear.
