Just got one of these for Ledger

http://www.zooplus.co.uk/shop/dogs/dog_cages_carriers/folding_dog_kennels/226044

ultimately I want to try and get him into his own smaller comfy space in the car but liked the idea of also having something light and portable if I finally get round to having a night or two in a dog friendly B&B

For the time being though it is in my view to let him get used to it so he doesn't eat his way out Laughing

We also have a new waterproof winter coat and one spoilt pooch

Have to let us know how you get on with it and what the quality is like as ity's not that expensive. I looked at some when we were travelling down to Cornwallbut opted for the fdogs both travelling down in harnesses on the back seat in the end

I have not tried the soft looking crate for the car but would be interested to hear how it goes.

The coat looks good too, and machine washable very handy.

The quality of the crate is really good it zips up and collapses down into a carry bag but seems very sturdy for material it is covered in pockets and there are flaps on each side which can be velcroed up or kept down for a dark safe space. I ordered the large and it is exactly that it comes with a fleecy mat but I have also got a large plush dog bed cushion off the market for £7 and it fits in lovely and still gives Ledger loads of space. Still trying to let him get used to it home as it wouldn't take much for him to eat his way out if he wanted.

As for the coat that is amazing I ordered the 50cm and thought it was a bit long when I got it out of the pack but it is perfect there is a high collar and a hole for the lead attachment which holds the coat up in place and being the bigger coat it has two velcro straps one round the chest and the other round his slinky waist it also has little elastics at the back which can be put around the hind legs but it seems to stay in place really well without them and today has kept him warm and dry and visible in the dark and it has dried really quickly in comparison to his 3 peaks coat that stays damp for hours

I've got one very similar to that for Dempsey at work. It's lasted for 3 years so far, so I'm more than happy with it & it doubles as our camping crate as well!

We had a soft travel crate for Suki. She ate her way through it and decided to come up to the front of the car to visit us. We have since put up a divider so that won't happen again.
