Ideal solution for my corgi/jack Russel Cross, approximately 8kg. She has enough room there so perfect for longer journeys. Fits well in my ford fiesta (2014), takes most of the boots space but leaves approx 40cm on side (will take aprox two shopping bags).
My dog loves car travels and it took her no time to get used to this.

Strange design flaws
Firstly, the plastic "mat", which sits on the floor to facilitate drainage, cannot be taken out once the crate is assembled. If your dog makes a mess, cleaning of the crate will be difficult.
Secondly, the locking mechanism on the door has to be operated by brute force, which is clumsy and unpleasant.
Thirdly, I was surprised to discover, that you must not lift the crate with the dog in it. The idea of a dog crate you cannot use to carry a dog seems peculiar.

Mini dog crate firplast
This item was delivered quickly, and although I managed to break three finger nails putting it together, it is perfect for my Jack Russell dog,who weighs 7 kg. Would have preferred an easier locking facility, but for the price, I am more than pleased. Excellent service all round
excellent car crate
Very robust and fits easily into the boot of a Yaris. I'm not sure how useful the loose perforated tray is in the bottom - I'm lining mine with a Vetbed. My only gripe is how hard it is to open the sliding doors. You have to push the plastic side of the crate in while pulling the edge of the door over it. Why didn't they fit a proper catch?

perfect for small dogs
My shih tzu was a nightmare in the car, defecating and peeing in the previous two crates I had bought.
I was getting desperate, after pondering if it could be that she needed a cosier more confined space I decided to try this crate. I wish I had bought this type in the first place, she is so at home and chooses to lie in it in the house. I am now going to buy another so that I can leave one permanently in the car.

Safe and sturdy
I have 2 of these now. I use one as a sleeping quarters for my puppy and the other to transport 2 of my small dogs in the car.
Fits superbly in the Hyundai i10 boot - just lift the boot lid up and that sits on the roof of the carrier.
I too put vet bed in the bottom in case of accident's.
I definitely recommend this carrier as it's sturdy, easily to keep clean and a great affordable price.

Follow up to last review...
Still using this in my DS3. I do get doggy hairs floating round in my boot but they come up with a quick vac and the cage prevents muck from getting everywhere. My car still looks brand new despite having dirt gremlins getting in 2 or 3 times every day.
I'm still loving this cage 3 1/2 months later and have used it for everything! Currently buying another for the mothers new Corsa as she finds this so much easier to take her big Ragdolls to the vets as both go in one cage. Its also easy to clean and with a bit of vet bed in the bottom animals don't slide around and the plastic tray at the bottom allows accidents (if they were to happen) to leak away and keep the animal dry.

Fits the DS3 great!
Bought this cage for my new Citroen DS3, there's enough room for 2 Papillons and still some boot space at the front and sides of the cage.
I bought it to protect the interior and although I've only used it twice the plastic sides should prevent any muck getting out after they go for a walk!

Great for a group of rabbits
I bought this as a carrier for my group of three rabbits (two medium, one large/giant) and would really recommend it.
It's very well made and a good size which allows rabbits to fully stretch out. The large front opening suits rabbits very well as you don't have to reach in from above, and mine will happily hop in on their own unlike normal carriers.
Fantastic carrier, I was having trouble finding a carrier for a Peugeot 207 boot space, I am so relieved to find this carrier, Bailey my Westie puppy (20 weeks) has plenty of room and it will fit him when fully grown. Would recommend for any one with a small hatch back car. Good price, good construction, easy assembly and very comfy for my puppy!
