The best soft crates on the market; excellent for well crate trained dogs. I travel a lot and they go in and out of hotels and dog show sites easily. Every spring I set them all out on my driveway, hose them out and they are good to go for another year. I have some that are over 10 years old and the only real wear is "doggy damage" done by digging or chewing. I can't say enough about these crates!

mainly because of the steel framing material - had one that was plastic PFC and it did not last long - hopefully this one will be better :>)

Needed a soft crate for my fosters. Rated highly by customers.
Elizabeth F on Jul 2, 2015
This is rated as the best soft crate. Many of my friends use it and like it. I hope my dog loves it too.
Kristin M on May 30, 2015
I have a smaller one for my Basenji. Great quality wanted a larger one for my doberman.
Dawn B on May 18, 2015

GAYE S on May 18, 2015
light weight and easy to travel with
carolyn r on May 7, 2015
new to try this one. I need the smaller size down. If these are sturdy enough, I will order 10 more of the size I need.
Gale L on May 7, 2015

gate108 on Apr 25, 2015
This is my second crate. I just received my first one about a week ago, used it this past weekend at a flyball tournament and fell in love with it enough to get a second one! It goes up and down super easily and quickly, it's sturdy, and it looks great too! I'm especially a fan of the fact that the fabric can be removed and washed. It has a carry handle to make it easy to transport too. Awesome crate for soft crate-trained dogs!
Cheryl S on Apr 13, 2015
I already have three of these crates. They are light weight and sturdy. My dogs love them! None of them are chewers so they work really well. Do not get if you think your dog might chew out of it. The fabric is easy to destroy if a dog is determined.
Kristin K on Apr 7, 2015
Sturdier frame, dimensions were good but wish the windows had flaps for privacy. Almost didn't buy for this reason.
Jane W on Mar 28, 2015
Easy to set-up and stores flat.
Holly S on Mar 19, 2015
I stay at pet friendly hotels, and soft crates are so much easier to transport and set up.
Melissa K on Mar 5, 2015
this one appears to be better constructed than the ones at Pet Smart with the support bars at the top.
Thomas R on Mar 1, 2015
I need this item for my dogs.
Kathie M on Feb 26, 2015
I wanted soft crate that opens on the side to put on each each side of my van. Did not want a dog at the tailgate of the van.
Debra G on Feb 8, 2015
I chose this pet crate because of being able to use it as my dog's everyday crate and for travel. It seems easier to handle when traveling.
Michelle C on Feb 5, 2015
Already have one and love it I have 3 Weims
Judy O on Jan 27, 2015
Meed a crate that could be used in ravel and the wife crated were too big
ROBERT J on Jan 12, 2015
This should work great when I travel with the dogs.
Heather E on Nov 28, 2014
I've had one of these crates before and they are easy and durable. I had to get a larger one for a larger dog.
Noel H on Oct 9, 2014
I already own 3 of these crates. When I got a fourth dog, it was a no brainer to get one more. Lightweight, durable and easy to setup. Really a good value.
Carolyn B on Sep 22, 2014

I would like to ask anyone that has bought this crate the biggest dog they used it for? I know it says 90 lbs. but has anyone exceeded that limit? I have Newfoundlands. Thanks, Kim
A shopper on Mar 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Don't bother. You need a crate that has floor to ceiling windows on all 4 sides. Although very sturdy, this crate is way too confining for a Newfie.
I need to replace the covering for the frame of NoztoNoz sof-crate 2 - where do I find replacement coverings for these crates so I can order?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Try this link. It's for replacement parts for the crate.
Hi - Does this crate have tabs to allow tie down when traveling? Thanks.
Helen M on Feb 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This would not be my first choice for a crate to use when traveling. I use it while set up at dog shows and training facilities, and love it for this purpose. In an accident, it would offer little to no protection for your dog. I just purchased a Variocage for the car. Variocage is the only dog crate subjected to independent crash testing.
Does this crate have mesh windows on all four sides?
A shopper on Dec 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I no longer have the crate because my Shar-Pei puppies have outgrown it, but if I remember correctly, the front door is mesh with a zipper, and the two sides are mesh windows. The Windows also have a zipper, and if opened, the mesh can be rolled up and held in place with an attached Velcro tab. The back of the crate is another door, I think .. but it may be a window. Either way, there is a mesh area with zipper.
I loved this crate because all 4 sides could be open/closed. If you have a "strong" breed or hyperactive pet, they will be able to break out - keep this in mind!
My dog has separation anxiety and scratches at her cage when left alone. I am looking for something that will not harm her paws by scratching at it while I am away. Do you think this cage will be better for her paws yet durable enough that she won't ruin it or tip it over?
A shopper on Dec 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No soft crate will stand up to a dog with separation anxiety. Work with an animal behaviorist to address the problem.
Is this good to travel in plane?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: As cargo, absolutely not. You need an airline-approved hard crate for that. For a small dog and to fly under the seat accompanied by a human passenger - perhaps and only if the dog is well-behaved and will not attempt to scratch or bite through the mesh panels. However, check the airline's policy on acceptable carry-on dog kennels. Many accept soft cariers.
Could this crate be used for two pug puppies ?
Pat W on Jun 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Only good for puppies 10 weeks and under. And that is because their teeth are sharp enough yet. And not good for small breed hyper dogs. They will chew the mesh windows out. I own a pet transporting company. And my customers love these soft crates. And I have lost many, many crates to these chewers.

How much does the 42" crate weigh?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Less than 20 pounds! The crate is very light weight which makes it great for travel! For me, it was a great investment, light weight , easy to put up and easy to store!
I am having an extremely hard time with the couplers on both sides of the crate . Difficulty both setting it up and collapsing it. My husband has difficulty with it too . Seems like the red button won't depress all of the way to allow the sleeve to move. Any way to adjust this ?
Judy C on May 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Make sure that the "hole" is centered over the red button so it isn't putting pressure on the side of the button when you are trying to depress it. The button and the sliding mechanism on mine were extremely stiff and hard to move on mine when it was new. A year later, everything is much easier to move. (To the extent that I wouldn't want it any more loose at this point.) I have three of these crates in a smaller size and I use them only for travel, so mine get taken up and down. If someone left it up as an at-home-crate, it might not loosen up as much. There are some good videos on setting up this crate. Go to YouTube and search for "Noz2Noz crate". Hope this helps.
Has anyone found this crate to have an excessive petroleum or plastic smell that they can't get rid of? Reviews on some sites have panned this crate for the lingering "chemical" oder that seem to be very strong.
Robert F on Mar 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There was absolutely no odor when we opened this crate. There still in not an odor, one week later.
Can someone please tell me the dimensions when the largest crate size (XL - 42"x28"x31") is collapsed/folded down? Thank you!
Anne V on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have this crate in a different size, 30 X 22, not sure I think it might be a medium size. The important part is that when it is folded down it measures only 5" tall. This size fit perfectly into the trunk of our Ford Mustang for extensive travel last year. It was very easy to collapse every time we moved on to a different hotel, town etc. It is now stored in a closet and takes up so little room that I forgot about it. Will being using it again this summer, it keeps our 22 pound Cockapoo safe when we leave him alone in a hotel room. We don't have to worry about housekeeping accidently letting him out of the room when we are out and about. Hope this helps, overall this is a great product and is holding up very well.
Will this crate hold my Newfoundland?
Kim K on Mar 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No! Too confining for them. They need floor to ceiling windows or a wire crate. If traveling, they do best in a seat belt.
do you have replacement covers?
maryellen K on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am sorry we do not carry the replacement covers.
What crate should I buy for a 15 lb dog?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello, maybe the 26 inch in the Sof-krate.
Looking for frame for sof-krate N2N. WE HAVE COVER BUT NO FRAME. Do you have the frame to purchase?
Linda M on Jun 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we do not. You might want to contact the manufacturer.
