Sporting a similar size to the Mastiff, these dog cages have tapered sides to match the headboards of most utes with a flat steel or alloy tray such as the common Triple M trays.

Custom Dog Cages

Enquire

Design

When our standard model cages / crates don't suit your specific needs we can fabricate a custom dog cage to any design. Our custom dog cages have ranged from suiting tub style utes and vans to station wagons, motorbikes, golf buggies, trailers, trucks and more. If you have a specific design in mind we can custom fabricate to your plans or we can propose a design that delivers the custom requirements you are after. All our custom dog cages / crates are fabricated to the same high quality as our standard models, ensuring you get a high quality product that can withstand the tests of time.

We Pride ourselves on being the company that can deliver the solutions our customers want - you won't hear from us 'it can't be done' - we will always work with you to deliver the solution you're after!

Process

Where cages are being custom built to suit a specific vehicle it is best to bring the vehicle into our factory for an onsite measure and consult. Alternatively, we can fabricate a custom cage / crate to set plans, photos or to a blueprint of the area the custom cage is to be fitted.

Things to consider when deciding on a custom cage / crate build include; is the size of the custom cage right for my precious cargo, is the design inherently safe, how heavy will the custom cage be and is the overall design practical? These are all questions we have the experience to help you get answered before your custom cage is fabricated.

FAQ

What size cage is best for my Breed?

Not all dogs are born the same, some are smaller and some are larger for their Breeds. While we have a general understanding of how comfortable certain breeds will be in each of our standard ute cages, we don't know your dogs as well as you do. To know what model will best suit your dog we recommended getting some chalk and marking the dimensions out on the ground. Get your best mate to stand in the outline and make sure s/he can turn around and lie down comfortably.

I live interstate, can I still get a K9 TravelSafe?

Absolutely! Just send us your postcode and we will find the best freight option for you.

I brought a cage but can't open the door?

All our quality latches have a built in safety mechanism to prevent the door from opening unintentionaly. Located on the handle of the latch is a small S/S lever, lift this lever up to unlock the latch.

I don't want to drill into my tray, what are my options?

Bolting the dog cage / crate into the ute tray is by far the safest way of securing the cage / crate to the ute as bolts are far less likely to fail or lead to rattlingcompared to alternative methods. If you really don't want to use bolts we can install mounting points on the cage to allow it to be secured to existing tie down points on your ute tray. Alternatively, ratchet straps can be used to secure the cage, but ratchet straps require vigilent monitoring of their condition to minimize the risk of them failing.

Will the standard models fit in my Tub Tray?

The Kelpie, Husky, SharPei and Staffy models have all been designed to suit most tub trays. However, not all ute trays are manufactured the same and some vehicles do have a reduced clearance between the wheel arches - meaning our standard models will not fit. Before ordering your cage, double check to make sure there is 1050mm clearance between the wheel arches. If you do have a tub tray that's narrow between the wheel arches, just give us a call and we can quickly make up a custom cage / crate.

The standard models won't fit in my Tub Tray, what are my options?

Not a Problem! Just provide us with the minimum clearance between the wheelarches of your ute and we will custom fabricate a slightly smaller model dog cage / crate to suit your ute!
