patriot dog box
does anyone own one of the patriot boxes i am thinking about buying one and just want some pros and cons about them tahnk you
I have one, and have been well pleased with it.
I have one and am lukewarm to it. It's better than Creative Sports, Owens, and similar boxes but the design needs improvement. The doorways are small. My very average sized Goldens scrape their backs getting in out of the box. This also makes cleaning the interior of the holes almost impossible. Another issue is that the interior edges around the vents aren't really finished or attached in any way. As a result, a dog that gets anxious and starts pawing at the vent can peel back the edge. The divider between the two sides is not ventilated at all so it allows for absolutely no flow of air between the two sides. The door latches are pretty flimsy. Also, the corners need to be either filed or hammered to get rid of the razor sharp edges on the box when it comes from the factory. Basically for a nominal difference in production costs, the boxes could be made a lot more functional and safer.
