Dakota 283 Hero Kennel
Designed with working dogs in mind, the Dakota 283 Hero Kennel is named for the heroes it was built to protect. Originally for Military and Police dogs, the Hero Kennel is molded from military-grade materials in one solid piece and provides an extra layer of security with a triple-locking, stainless steel door that can be closed with one hand. Dakota Guard is an environmentally and food-grade safe additive that is included in small quantities during production to protect your pet’s health and safety from the invisible world. Just another way Dakota 283 is committed to keeping your pets safe!

Each crate is constructed using the rotational molding process and from high-grade Polyethylene, which forms a single-shell product that will flex slightly, but also resistant to surface abrasions and extreme impacts. This is the very same process used to make US military-strength cargo containers and heavy-duty fuel cells; so you can rest assured it will hold up to anything you and your dog through at it.
The walls are tough and rugged, able to absorb impacts while the corners remain virtually impervious to crushing, cracking and other damage.
The interior of the crate is deep and wide making it a good fit for nearly any size dog (or other similar-sized animals). The Hero kennel are built and sized to fit the rear interior of most trucks, SUVs and hatchbacks (that are 48 inches wide or more) sitting side-by-side. If your dog happens to have an "accident," the one-piece design prevents your car from getting messy but is easily rinsed when you are ready. The small, rear-facing holes allow for easy cleaning and drainage. Getting in and out of the crate is never a problem thanks to the double-hinged door, which can swing from right or left and can be completely removed with ease from the outside.
The Hero glides more easily across surfaces. This is ideal if you don't require the crate to be raised and prefer the sliding action. By running straps through the top handle hole, the G3s can be locked in for a permanent stay in the back of virtually any vehicle.
