Finding a boarding kennel during the holiday season is a challenge, as most are full this time of year. Most pet parents hate leaving their dogs behind in a kennel anyway. Traveling with your dog isn’t always easy either.
More and more hotels are pet-friendly, but most require a kennel. Loading a bulky metal kennel in the back of your car along with the entire family’s luggage feels a bit like playing Tetris. The good news is: there’s a better way.
Portable tent crates are soft-sided, collapsible, easy to store and transportable crates for your pets. They’re perfect for traveling and sturdy enough to keep your pet safe and secure when you’re not with him. They’re also lightweight and easy to carry.
