Aluminum Dog Crates, Collapsible Dog Crates, Dog Kennel, Aluminum Kennel, K9 Kennel
Yep that's the one. If you ever decide to buy one from them call Danny Baker at ICC Case. He's a great guy and has excellent customer service. Plus if you tell him that I sent you he will give you a discount. I LOVE MY CRATE!!

This year was the first time I've met Mickey. She seemed really cool. We had a great seminar with lots of scenarios. Mickey and I spent a lot of time on the boat together working the new dogs and some more experienced ones. I got to work Bella on some great stuff too including full size and fresh. It was good experience. The trash dump with methane mixed in was a good thing too. It's good to hear from you again. I don't get on here very often anymore.

jlthorpe I have one of those case built by impact case and container. I love it. Best crate I've ever owned. I can move from my truck to the house to the patrol car in only a few minutes.

No problems with the metal. I only got mine after many talks with folks with aluminum dog boxes and a consensus they are cooler, not hotter, than the other types. I have crawled into mine when it is hot outside (for cleaning, not to hang out ) and it really is surprisingly cooler than you would think!

As far as the shell, mine was put on about 1 month after I got the truck in 2007 and it has never come loose and does not rattle. Original windoors as well and I have no problems with the welds or shocks and I drive with them open at highway speeds. (Another reason I want secure latches on the dog crate!) ....I am glad I did not get a slider with a screen or that a slider with windoors was not available at the time. The latter is a heavier window and a Teammates slider does have a broken weld. Her topper is an ARE, mine is a LEER (though LEERs are famous for leaking and mine does leak a little around the window seals)

Dino,
Nice crate. Where did you get it from?

jocoyn I can fit a 40 inch vari-kennel sideways in the back or two people and a dog can ride on the platform with their feet on the tailgate and be comfortable. Since I only have one dog now, my truck is a go to place for other team dogs if their SUV or Car is getting too hot. Plus we carpool a lot of places. (like if we get a callout 3-4 hours away). The good thing is Beau is absolutely cool with having company.
