I have been looking into getting a dog box for my dogs that I take to training. I currently use two airline crates but in the back of my pickup they are difficult to anchor down securely.

My german shepherd is around 65lbs and I also take my giant schnauzer (77 lbs). And I will be getting another puppy in the near future.

Does anyone use a dog box for their dogs and if so could you recommend where you got it.

Thanks

My uncle has a dog box for his working labrador. It's a "Hound Man Delux". He keeps cedar chips on the inside for insulation. I don't think he bolted his to his jeep because he often ties her out in the shade and she likes to stay in the box. The only bad thing I noticed about it is that the inside is made with some kind of wood (unless my uncle put it in there) and she chewed on it, but she is in this box a LOT (travels everywhere with him) and she's a major chewer. She chewed all over her old VeriKennel. She is a little bigger than my GSD, maybe 65-70lbs.

A friend has two of these that she uses for her two SchH dogs. They are bolted to the back of her pickup. I have no idea what brand, but they are very nice. All metal construction, no wood.

Just have somebody add some tie down points. This survived a hard crash without moving. I do 2 side by side the same way.

Those are motorcycle tie down ratchet straps. They hold a 600 pound Harley down in my truck.

kutzro357 Thanks! I have a Dodge too and the issue I have is that when I put the two crates side by side it makes it difficult to anchor the fronts of the crates securely. I have the factory installed tie down points which are great for everything but the crates. In the mean time I am going to borrow my fathers ratchet straps since I was using heavy duty bungies.

Chris- Yes I was looking at the all metal ones. Unfortunately with my girl anything with wood would be a snack on the way to training.

You can bolt nice chrome tie downs to the bed rails too.
