Dog Crates

At Pets on the Move, we leave nothing to chance, with our own purpose-built, bespoke dog crates. Your dogs air crate will be built for him alone, with maximum comfort and safety uppermost in our minds to ensure his journey will be as stress free as possible.

Your dog’s wooden or plastic air crate will be sturdy and airline approved, with a carrying handle. Naturally, the crates have safety catches, door retainers and a convex base for drainage. For safety, there’s a heavy-duty latch that dogs can’t open, and your crate comes with a water and food bowl.

The guidelines below are extracts from the DEFRA web site and cover the construction of of all crates including dog crates.
