I need a kennel- I've got a dog box for the long hauls, but it's 150# or so. I'd like a good rugged kennel that i can throw in the back of the truck for short trips to the farm and/or inside use. I've been looking at RuffLand Kennels. They seem to be moderately priced, but to get it delivered is another $165. Any alternatives? I've got the cheap, flimsy kind you buy at petsmart, so i don't need another one of those.

Thanks!

The Gunner kennels are the best there is in a portable kennel but they are $500+. They also weight around 60 pounds I believe, maybe a tad more.

For a light weight kennel and price, the Ruffland is a good option.

Gun Dog Supply sells Lucky Duck kennels. They're supposed to be lighter weight than Gunner, but have a 5 star crash test rating.

I have no personal experience with them, but they look nice.

I got the Ruffland from Schneels (had a gift card). Shipping was $150, which sucked. It’s lighter than I thought, but seems to be very sturdy. Will report back

Ruff lands are great. You might try Cabelas’s and have them ship to the store close to you for free.


God Bless and Semper FI
