Default Soft Crate Recommendation

I have been trying to find an old thread about soft crate reviews and recommendations but I haven't found it for the life of me. Can someone else find that thread or can we make this one about it?

I'm interested in your experiences using the canvas crates.

That is a good first question since many dogs aren't, but yes. I have a dog tent but that's for outdoor venues and takes up a bit more floor space so I'm looking for a soft sided crate now. Whatever they call those I'm interested to know ease of setup/takedown, ease to carry, and ease of getting it open and closed.

go to a store that sells them and check them out.
that way you'll know if it works for you.

Then what's the point of the forum. Geez, I want to ask here, not go to a store.

I have one! Really like it for my adult. Would never put my puppy in it. Guardian Gear. Best prices are on Amazon. I see many of the same brand at events. The canvas is tough. Many flaps for air flow and good quality zippers.

their experience with a soft crate rather than you
go and find out for yourself? lol. do both. ask here
and go check them out in store. that way you're
covered. lol.

How about you post something constructive for once. I didn't ask anyone HOW I should shop for a crate. If you have a soft crate, please post what you have and your experience, if you don't, you have nothing to post about.

doggiedad...knock it off. You are doing nothing more than harassing and antagonizing this person that just asked for experiences with soft side crates.
