    Default Homemade Dog Box

    Not complete but for only $250 in materials+redneck ingunity+ cases of bud light we came up with this. We still need to add the center vent between the two holes. Some mats. Maybe a couple fans. The name A-Team written above the two holes and there names ammo and ace written above their respective holes. It will always be a work in progress. Any opinions?

    Styrofoam insulation in the top, and sides if you can will go a long way in the TX heat. Nice reflective white pain wouldn't hurt.

    Dang, that looks pretty good.

    How much does it weigh?

    I'd really be concerned with the sharp corners of the vents on the inside for your dogs. Bouncing through training grounds or something and a pretty sharp jab in the side can't be comfortable.
