Thread: Ruff Land Kennel

  1. #1

    Default Ruff Land Kennel

    Hi all, thinking about getting a Ruff Land Kennel. Anyone have the intermediate size? Would my 63lb lab fit in it? He has a bigger crate for the house but looking for something smaller for my suv. Thoughts?

    They make an SUV model now also, that has a slant back, in intermediate and large size.

    That’s what my wife uses in hers. Not a problem if you’d like little more room go up to large but an xl is way to big. If you get to much room it’s dangerous if in an accident.

    My 60 and 70lb labs each are in a large. Both are comfortable.

    My 1.5 year old female is 56 lbs and fits in the intermediate. It’s a travel kennel so I wanted it on the smaller side. Her kennel at the house is more spacious.

    That’s what I was thinking. He’d be snug, but it’s safer for travel...but what about long training days or hunt tests? Is it too long to be that snug?

    Depending on the "legginess" of your dog, I have found that 65+ is the breakpoint between Intermediate and Large. Particularly if this is a travel and not a "house" kennel. Might be a bit on the tight side for comfort during training / hunt test days.

    My 1 yr old 65 lb male is in a large for home and travel. I tried him in an intermediate and it was a little snug for anything more than an hr or so trip in my opinion.

    I have a large for travel for a 78 pound long-legged lab, and use an XL at training and tests. If you can fit the large, I’d go with that.

    Our 70 pound female Lab fits very well in an Intermediate Ruff Land. We have an intermediate but also have a two door intermediate with the center door we put across the back of our Honda Passport, that is a very good setup for a midsize SUV.
