Simple Setup and Storage
The Petnation Port-A-Crate is easy to set-up and breakdown. Simply lay the crate flat and release the side clips used to keep the crate in the folded position. Gently pull the front and back panels of the crate to the vertical position.
Next, stand to one side of the crate and grasp the two piece top bar with both hands. Gradually pull the two bars upward so that they join each other, being careful not to pinch your hand at the connection point. Slide the closure sleeve over the connection until it is fully extended and frame is rigid. Repeat the same process on the other side.
Take Your Pet Anywhere
Ingenious Construction and Design
The Petnation Port-A-Crate Indoor/Outdoor Pet Home allows you to take your best friend with you anywhere you go. This portable home is perfect for family vacations, trips, vet visits, or for simply setting up a quiet retreat within your home.
The unique design of the Petnation Port-A-Crate provides a durable enclosure for your pet. The outside is constructed of a heavy-duty tight weave mesh fabric and the steel frame endoskeleton provides superior strength and support for the fabric. Mesh windows are perforated like a honeycomb to encourage airflow throughout the Port-A-Crate; providing a more comfortable environment for your dog or cat to enjoy. Two doors (front and top) allow for easier access and can be rolled up and secured open with included fastening straps. Additional features include industrial strength zippers and door latches that safely secure your favorite companion.
Cleaning is No Problem
Cleaning your Petnation Port-A-Crate is extremely easy. Each model is constructed with a water resistant material for quick and easy cleanup; simply clean up any pet waste and then wipe down the material with a stain and odor remover (we recommend Nature’s Miracle) and allow it to air dry. For more extensive cleaning, simply remove the fully washable cover from the steel frame and throw it in with the rest of the laundry; it really is that effortless!
It’s Completely Safe for You and Your Pet:
The safety of your pet is as important to us as it is to you. All parts of your Petnation Port-A-Crate are made of lightweight, non-toxic materials that contain no sharp or small pieces that could potentially harm your pet. Specially designed rounded corners protect against accidental damage to auto interiors and home décor and mesh windows provide proper ventilation while your pet is inside.
The weights to the right are true for most breeds but not in all instances. The best indicator is to measure your dog against the below dimensions.

Choosing the Correct Size for Your Pet
Petnation Port-A-Crate Pet Homes are available in six sizes to accommodate almost any size pet. Measuring your pet for the perfect sized crate is simple. First, measure your pet from the top of his head to the floor (the Port-A-Crate only needs to be one to two inches taller than this measurement). Second, measure your pet from the tip of his nose to the base of his tail (the Port-A-Crate only needs to be four to six inches longer than this measurement). Following these guidelines will allow your pet enough room to stand up, turn around, and lay down comfortably. You can of course provide a larger space for your pet but remember that dogs are den animals and feel most comfortable and secure in an enclosed area. Use the handy chart located below to choose the perfect Port-A-Crate for your pet needs.
Important Safety Tips:
Although your Petnation Port-A-Crate is extremely well made, no fabric crate will contain a pet that is an aggressive chewer or scratcher. Leaving your pet unattended for extended periods of time may cause anxiety for your pet and cause him to scratch or chew to escape. It is important to take your pet’s behavioral habits and needs into consideration before selecting a crate. Always remember to remove your pet’s leash and collar prior to placing him in his Port-A-Crate to prevent accidental choking.
Never ever leave your pet unattended in a car!
