Fido Classic - Easy Folding, Twin Door Metal Dog Crate
Double-door crate with secure latches
The Omlet Fido Classic dog crate has a door on the long side and the short side. This makes accessing the crate easy and you can arrange the crate in your home so that it fits in perfectly. For instance if you have a narrow space you can slide the crate in and use the door on the short end.
This high quality dog crate is made from heavy duty welded steel wire with a neat black epoxy coating that will look good for years to come. Each door has two slide-bolt latches that lock when you fold them all the way down. Once your puppy is completely relaxed in it’s crate you can leave the house for a short length of time, for example if you are popping to the shops, knowing that your house will not get chewed to bits! See Omlet’s dog guide for more advice on using a crate.
Easy set up & folds flat for Storage
Your Fido Classic dog crate will arrive fully assembled. You won’t need any tools to set it up. In a few simple movements, and as if by magic, the product unfolds to create a sturdy crate. If you need to move it, it has a handle on the top so lifting is easy (less easy if the dog is inside!) and if you want to store the crate, it folds down flat again in just a few seconds. When folded a metal loop clips around to secure it and the handle can be used to carry it like a suitcase.
Transporting your dog
For car journeys a dog crate is essential. It secures your dog safely in the boot of your car and protects them from movements on the journey, it also means they can’t change the radio station. Check the dimensions of the crate to make sure it will fit in your boot with the door closed. You should use a dog bed and place your dogs favourite toy in the crate.
Luxury Optional Dog Bed
An optional extra but well worth it, this excellent value bed has been tailored to fit the Fido Classic perfectly. Naturally it has a removable cover and is machine washable for convenience. Unusually for a bed at this price it’s extra deep filled and has a very smart contrasting cream piped edge, the kind of finishing touch you might find in a Rolls Royce for much more money.
The Fido Classic comes with a plastic tray that will catch little spills and accidents that can happen with excitable puppies! It’s also useful for older dogs and simply slides out of the crate for easy clean-ups!. The Omlet tray comes in a distinctive dark grey with a subtle non slip textured pattern and the Omlet logo embossed in the centre.
