Portable Outdoor Dog Kennels

I feel guilty when I go on holiday leaving my dog in a boarding kennel or with other family members, as they always wants to come with me at night. This is when portable outdoor dog kennels are great, allowing me for taking my dog along to recreational areas, visiting family or heading on vacation. They will ensure you’re dog has always his own private space in a save environment.

You can find few things to look out for when buying a lightweight dog kennel.

1. Lightweight
If you’re lazy like me then you definitely want a lightweight kennel. It just makes it easier carrying it around and configuring it.

2. Element Safety
If you’re main goal is to use them exterior then make sure they are water resistant, provide protection from wind and are durable and may break quickly. Also make sure they have some sort of flooring to protect your pet from wet and cold grounds.

3. Cleansing
If you travel with your kennel a lot and have a careless dog like I do then is actually important to be sure the lightweight dog kennel is 100% washable.

4. Easy to set up
You don’t want to take along your toolbox and spend several hours to assemble and sham the kennel. So make sure it’s easy to assemble with minimal amount of tools. Believe me you’ll thank me just for this tip when you’ve reached your vacation, ready to sip the Pina Ca?ada while not having to spent hours adding together your kennel.

I’ve created a comparison chart with best portable dog kennels out there meeting all the criteria above.
