Simple Setup and Storage
The Petnation Port-A-Crate is easy to set-up and breakdown. Simply lay the crate flat and release the side clips used to keep the crate in the folded position. Gently pull the front and back panels of the crate to the vertical position.
Next, stand to one side of the crate and grasp the two piece top bar with both hands. Gradually pull the two bars upward so that they join each other, being careful not to pinch your hand at the connection point. Slide the closure sleeve over the connection until it is fully extended and frame is rigid. Repeat the same process on the other side.
Take Your Pet Anywhere
Ingenious Construction and Design
The Petnation Port-A-Crate Indoor/Outdoor Pet Home allows you to take your best friend with you anywhere you go. This portable home is perfect for family vacations, trips, vet visits, or for simply setting up a quiet retreat within your home.
The unique design of the Petnation Port-A-Crate provides a durable enclosure for your pet. The outside is constructed of a heavy-duty tight weave mesh fabric and the steel frame endoskeleton provides superior strength and support for the fabric. Mesh windows are perforated like a honeycomb to encourage airflow throughout the Port-A-Crate; providing a more comfortable environment for your dog or cat to enjoy. Two doors (front and top) allow for easier access and can be rolled up and secured open with included fastening straps. Additional features include industrial strength zippers and door latches that safely secure your favorite companion.
Cleaning is No Problem
Cleaning your Petnation Port-A-Crate is extremely easy. Each model is constructed with a water resistant material for quick and easy cleanup; simply clean up any pet waste and then wipe down the material with a stain and odor remover (we recommend Nature's Miracle) and allow it to air dry. For more extensive cleaning, simply remove the fully washable cover from the steel frame and throw it in with the rest of the laundry; it really is that effortless!
It's Completely Safe for You and Your Pet:
The safety of your pet is as important to us as it is to you. All parts of your Petnation Port-A-Crate are made of lightweight, non-toxic materials that contain no sharp or small pieces that could potentially harm your pet. Specially designed rounded corners protect against accidental damage to auto interiors and home décor and mesh windows provide proper ventilation while your pet is inside.
The weights to the right are true for most breeds but not in all instances. The best indicator is to measure your dog against the below dimensions.
Benefits of Crate Training
- Dramatically reduced housebreaking time.
- A crate trained puppy will travel much easier.
- Crate training teaches your puppy desirable behavior.
- Crate training improves and strengthens the pet/owner bond.
- Crate training provides security and privacy by providing your puppy with its own home when he becomes tired or anxious.
- It provides you peace of mind that your home is not being damaged and your pet is safe while you're out.
Choosing the Correct Size for Your Pet
Petnation Port-A-Crate Pet Homes are available in six sizes to accommodate almost any size pet. Measuring your pet for the perfect sized crate is simple. First, measure your pet from the top of his head to the floor (the Port-A-Crate only needs to be one to two inches taller than this measurement). Second, measure your pet from the tip of his nose to the base of his tail (the Port-A-Crate only needs to be four to six inches longer than this measurement). Following these guidelines will allow your pet enough room to stand up, turn around, and lay down comfortably. You can of course provide a larger space for your pet but remember that dogs are den animals and feel most comfortable and secure in an enclosed area. Use the handy chart located below to choose the perfect Port-A-Crate for your pet needs.
Important Safety Tips:
Although your Petnation Port-A-Crate is extremely well made, no fabric crate will contain a pet that is an aggressive chewer or scratcher. Leaving your pet unattended for extended periods of time may cause anxiety for your pet and cause him to scratch or chew to escape. It is important to take your pet’s behavioral habits and needs into consideration before selecting a crate. Always remember to remove your pet's leash and collar prior to placing him in his Port-A-Crate to prevent accidental choking.
Never ever leave your pet unattended in a car!

Petnation recommends a Nature’s Miracle Orthopedic Pet Bed. These comfortable beds are sized to fit well within Petnation Port-a-Crates and come in a variety of sizes for the 16, 20, 28 and 32 inch crates.

Bottom line, Princy LOVES his kennel and, whether sleeping inside or napping on top, he is a very happy fur beast!
Unfortunately she discovered a few weeks back that she could scratch a whole in it. It is probably my fault because she is liking the freedom of being out of the kennel when I'm away. So now there is a big hole in the netting like some other Reviewers posted in their reviews. Last night she actually made the whole big enough to climb out of and my husband and I woke up to the most adorable Mini Schnauzer in our bed. We were certainly surprised. For now we'll just face the door toward the wall during bed time but we'll need to get a new kennel before our next traveling expedition. Luckily you can just call (800) 526-0650 x16118 to order a replacement cover and not buy a whole new kennel.
We still love the mat we put in there. We have 2 small puppy blankets in there too. Our puppy will go right into the kennel at bed time and arrange her blankets before falling asleep (except last night of course :) )
ORIGINAL:The size will be perfect for my miniature schnauzer. It's a bit big for her now but I just put blankets in the back to make it smaller till she is full grown. The canvas is a good thickness. I did have some dirty/discoloration but I didn't bother exchanging it for a new one as my puppy won't care. No tears or rips yet. I'll edit it if I feel it's the company's bad manufacturing or simply my fault for leaving my puppy in there for too long.
The pillow I bought for inside is this one http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B004169YC4/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_72 for $16
