Debi from Denver, Colorado:
I am interested in your large dog crate. What is the brand name and made where?
The plastic dog crates are made by Kennel Aire. They are now owed by Petmate. The kennels are manufactured in Arlington, Texas. So yes, these are made in the USA. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Christina from Phoenix, Arizona:
I am in need of a kennel that is at least 40 inches high. For an Afghan Hound. She is 37 inches tall and 48 lbs.
The largest airline approved crate is 48"L x 35"H x 32"W. I do not sell the huge size yet, but this is the biggest size they make. Delta is the hardest to deal with, just try to talk to them and explain your situation. Every airline is a bit different in regulations and may still let you use a huge crate. Call if you have any other questions.

Jason from the dog forum: On Kennel Cough
This is the result of using used kennels and not cleaning them properly. BEWARE!!!
My friend says that my dog has Kennel Cough. I saved Ralphie from the shelter and after a few days, he became unmotivated and developed a cough and keeps snorting/sneezing. Has anyone ever been in this situation before? Is this common?
Has he ever been vaccinated for Bordetella (kennel cough)? Kennel cough is easily spread so I would keep him away from all other dogs until you know for sure. Take him to the Vet, they will give him a cough suppressant. If not, the poor guy will be miserable.
And, yes it's fairly common. My Pug Lola had it last summer. It does pass without medication, but I couldn't stand to watch Lola cough so we took her to the Vet.
both our dogs had kennel cough last year. They make the most horrific sound with it, like they have something stuck in there throat. But ours didnít sneeze with it. The first two days where the worst, but it had more or less gone within a week. We just gave ours cough mixture and honey. But if they do have it you must keep them well away from other dogs for a few weeks.
Sounds like a good possibility. Please don't try human over-the-counter cough suppressant without consulting your vet because only a few types are okay to use in dogs.
My dog had all of the same symptoms when I got him from a shelter - snorting, sneezing, coughing, reverse sneeze attacks, etc. I took him in for his free wellness check and the vet didn't address his symptoms and only gave me literature for reverse sneeze. He got worse and was miserable and coughing all night. I took him to another vet who diagnosed him immediately and put him on antibiotics (he also had an ear infection the 1st vet missed--sad!) By then I'd already exposed him to my parents' elderly dog, so I wasn't happy with the first vet. Anyway, my point is that it is very contagious and can progress quickly. The 2nd vet also told me to use Robitussin at night, but he threw that up so I never gave it to him again. It took awhile to clear up. I'd definitely get him to a vet and keep him away from other dogs until it clears. Did your shelter offer you a free wellness visit? Glad you adopted him!
Yes, should have added that, ours was over the counter mixture , but it was on the advice of our vet.

Hi, How much are your wire crates in this size? My dog is about 40 lbs, would he fit in a smaller crate? He is a catahoula mix. Thanks, Robbin
He may fit into an intermediate wire crate or at most a large crate.

Mary from Salt Lake City:
My name is Mary ******* and I have rescued a dog from Utah's Perfect Pointers. Marylin told me to contact you regarding a kennel, as she said your prices were very good. The dog I rescued weighs about 85 Ė 90 pounds. I think the crate Marylin loaned me was a Large. Could you give me the prices for a Large and X-Large crate?
The large plastic crates are $79.99 and the xlarge are $99.99 plus tax if sold in Utah. I am a wholesaler in Salt Lake City. I work with manufactures all around the world to get some of the best quality/pricing. These plastic crates come from Texas, made in the USA by Doskocil Manufacturing Company. This is why my prices are low! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. To order, just give me a call and I will help you with the order.

Mr. Fugi from Phoenix, Arizona:
Hello I need hard kennel (not bag) that is airline approved. It will be for a 7 pound Shih tzu.
All our plastic kennels are airline approved. They have the IATA (international airline certificate) and USDA (domestic certificate). Our kennels come with an airline kit which includes the "live animal" stickers and food and water bowls. Some airlines do require metal nuts and bolts. Our kennels do not have metal nuts and bolts, but you can go to your local hardware store and purchase metal nuts and bolts for a few dollars. Make sure you check with the airlines for their rules and regulations. Each airline is different. Some airlines will not require metal nuts and bolts. Also, wire kennels are not airline approved, so you have to use plastic kennels. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Nichole from Denver, Colorado:
I need a wire crate for a puppy im getting but dont want to spend a ton of money because I will need to get her first set of shots and puppy supplies.. Please let me know..
I understand you can not spend a lot of money and this is why I try to help out my customers by offering the lowest prices with the best quality. I would go with a intermediate plastic crate if money is the biggest issue. If you want to crate your dog when it is an adult then I suggest getting a large wire crate and purchasing a divider for that large size. It is a lot cheaper if you purchase a divider rather than a whole new kennel or multiple kennels throughout the life of your dog. Buy one crate for the entire life of the dog. If you need anything don't hesitate to ask.

Heather from Denver, Colorado:
I'm looking for an extra large dog kennel. I have a mastador puppy and she is going to need a big one. Please let me know if you have one and the dimensions.
A Mastador is half lab and half mastiff. Being that she is a female, she may be a bit smaller, but I would still go with an extra large. I would only go with the extra large if you think she will be under 120 lbs. The extra large plastic kennels are $99.99 (http://www.ikennel.biz/TA40A.html). This price includes free shipping anywhere in Colorado. If you need anything bigger, the only thing I have is giant wire crates http://www.ikennel.biz/KAGC48.html
The plastic kennel will come with free bowls (food and water) for crate training.
We offer free shipping because we deal directly with Petmate, the largest crate manufacture in the world and there are over 500 packages leaving their plant everyday. You can expect the package to be in Denver in 1-2 business days, so it is fast. I had a guy from Littleton, CO buy from me last week, and it was shipped in 1 day and received in 2 days.
Payments are very easy. They go through paypal and don't require any account. You just need a credit/debit card and a shipping address.
If you have any questions, please call our owner Mike at 801.xxx.xxxx. .

DB from Salt Lake City, Utah:
i NEED A CAGE TO PUT MY JACK RUSSELL TERROR IN WHILE DRIVING...MUST FIT IN BACK OF HONDA ODYSSEY, BUT I DON'T WANT TO SPEND MUCH. I LIKE YOUR ADVICE ON "USED" CAGES.
I would recommend going with a plastic crate of a medium size. Do you plan on place thick bedding in the crate? If so you may want to go with the intermediate size. If you don't thick bedding inside the crate or if you just place a thin layer like a blanket, then I would just go with the medium size kennel. You can see the mediums at this link for $45 or the intermediates at this link for $55. Again you don't pay shipping or taxes through iKennel! If you need any other advise on crates, just let me know. Here is my direct number 801.xxx.xxxx.

Kris from Littleton, Colorado:

The manufacture ships out hundreds of packages everyday, so we can make sure that our team will successfully get that package to you, in no later than 2 days! Of course, this is just part of our free shipping. You will not have to pay extra. I will send over the e-invoice to you right now. Go ahead and just pay with a credit or debit card and make sure you provide your correct shipping address. If you need help just call me.

Barry From Mesa, Arizona:
My wife and I adopted a dog named Cherry. We need a wire kennel but don't want our credit card on file because of identity theft. Is your purchasing transactions safe?
Yes, the safest way to pay on the internet. This is why we have chosen Paypal. This way you do not have to give us any payment information. Paypal is most secure way to transfer money from one person to another. The best thing is you don't need a Paypal account. You just need a valid credit or debit card and a shipping address. The only information that iKennel will see is the shipping address and the amount you have paid. You must pay in full before the item(s) are shipped.

Rich From Boulder, Colorado:
I need a crate big enough for a 75 pound lab. Looking for a cheap plastic crate for indoors and outdoors when I hunt.
It is very tricky to fit a lab of this size into a plastic crate. Sometimes you can fit the dog into a large, but usually the correct size is an extra large crate. It is important to correctly size your dog before purchase. The easiest way to measure your dog is to map out the dimensions of the crate and see if your dog fits into it. Another simple way to measure your dog for a crate is to have your dog lay down in whatever comfortable position it prefers. Measure the length and width of your dog. If the dog is over 35" inches in length, then you will definitely need an extra large plastic crate for your dog to be comfortable. If your dog is 35" or less in length, you can purchase a large size plastic crate. Don't hesitate to ask any questions before purchasing.

Greg from Salt Lake City:
I am interested in one of your two larger sized crates. I have two labs and may want to put them both into one crate of possible.
Let me know the cost for those please. :)
I suggest going with an extra large plastic size http://www.ikennel.biz/TA40.html
I am a local wholesaler and online retailer, so this is why you can take advantage of such low prices. Look at those dimensions on my website and see if that works for you. If you have any questions, you can always call me too. Also, I have wire crates in the giant size, they are 48" long x 31" H x 28"W.

Phil from Salt Lake City, Utah:
I'm planning to relocate to Anchorage, AK and I'll need to fly my huge Great Dane/English Mastiff mix dog with me. He weighs 200lbs and is 33" at the shoulder.
Will your XL accommodate a dog of his size and meet Alaskan Air's shipping requirements?
The extra large plastic kennel will not be big enough for your dog. The extra large is good for dogs (depending on the breed) up to 95 lbs. Unfortunately, we do not offer any huge sized airline crates. Within a couple months we will have the largest crates on the market available in Salt Lake City. Also, they will be available for anyone else on this site (www.ikennel.biz). The huge size is 48" long x 35" high x 32" wide. This is the largest airline approved crate manufactured by Petmate or Doskocil Manufacturing.
