What are the benefits of the Frisco Ultimate Crate compared to a standard wire crate?
The Frisco Ultimate Crate features durable 22-gauge, high-grade steel with 1/2-inch diameter steel tubing to keep dogs safely and securely confined. Dual locks are easy to lock with sturdy latches and are positioned away from dogs’ reach to prevent clever dogs from tampering with them. The convenient front door allows for easy entry and exit.
How to select the best size crate:
- While the dog is standing, measure the dog from its nose to the base of its tail.
- While the dog is sitting, measure the dog from the top of its head to the floor.
- Add 4 inches to determine the maximum measurements. Remember, the dog should be able to stand up and turn around while in the crate.
