Collapsible Kennel Combines Strength With Versatility
The K9 Kennel Boss, a collapsible and secure aluminum dog kennel, is the latest venture for a Washington family that also makes furniture and the Mail Boss, a locking security mailbox (Vol. 46, No. 1). Both the mailbox and kennel were developed to solve challenges that are part of their lives.
My wife Jenny started a dog rescue, and Dog Gone Seattle has become the largest in the state, says Jonathan Nordin, operations manager for the family business. We used every crate on the market, and collapsible aluminum is the best, except its expensive. Our mission was to make them more affordable.
After research, development and real-life testing, Nordin says they came up with a grade of aluminum with the right blend of strength and flexibility. A 36-in. kennel for a medium size dog weighs 40 lbs. and uses a collapsible accordion design to fold down to a suitcase size with a handle.
Unlike wire cages that bend easily or break welds during transportation or under pressure from active dogs, the Kennel Boss is designed to last for years.
Its not a substitute for proper kennel training, Nordin emphasizes. But the K9 Kennel Boss will securely hold large dogs and dogs with separation anxiety.
One of the innovations we built into the crate is how we make it a rigid structure. Its very easy, once you know how, to set it up in less than a minute. There are threaded inserts that take screws with knurled nuts, so its locked in place, Nordin says, for added security.
Discounts are available off the price ($649 for the 36-in. kennel and $750 for the 41-in. kennel) for 501c3 rescue organizations, and 10 percent of all sales are donated to Dog Gone Seattle.
