Ellie Bo Dog Crate
Advantages: Solid, good construction
Disadvantages: Folding it down if you dont know what your doing
We recently got our Dog Dasher from a rescue centre not far from us and I was told by someone who has dogs all his life that we should get a crate for him (he said not to call it a cage as that seems cruel) Initially we thought it not a good idea as we wanted the dog to feel at home and be loved in the family.
We discussed this with the rescue centre and they also said it would be a good idea as it would make the Dog feel safe and give it sopmewhere to go to should it want to rest. So we got a "crate" and we have it in the utility room, with a blanket and it is left open for when Dasher wants it.
To our suprise he used it almost straight away and when he has come in from a long walk he wanders off for a bit of me time to be by himself. He gets straight into the crate at night without any hesitation and makes no noise until the morning when he wants o go for a walk.
The crate can fold down - although you need the get a handle on this from day one as it is not the easiest of things to do. On par with putting down a baby buggy - once youve done it, youve done it. The plastic tray in bottom came in useful after Dasher ate something that didnt agree with him and is easy to clean.
The construction is very robust and well made and we have had ours for about 6 months now without any issues and we have moved it twice in that time. It has a side and a front opening panel which helps when positioning the crate. Can be expensive so shop around for a good price. A good solid and purposefull item
Summary: Good piece of kit that works well and hasnt shown any signs of wear in 6 months
