Is it time to replace the dog crate you’ve had since your buddy was a puppy? Or did you get a new pooch and need a crate for him/her to hang out in when you can’t supervise?
Shopping for new pet items can be overwhelming. So many crates look the same yet can range in price, some may not be sturdy enough for your dog, and some may be missing things you want like a cover or the ability to be easily transported for trips. We’ve done some hunting around and have found crates that have received the highest reviews on Amazon and are the best selling on their site.
Here are 5 of the Best Rated Dog Crates
Merry Products Pet Cage with Crate Cover

There’s a plastic tray on the bottom that can be slid out to clean and you can place a bed in there or your dog’s favorite blanket.
