Deluxe vs Profession Comparison

The differences between the Deluxe models and the Professional crates has to do mainly with its heavy duty door construction. On any crate the door is consistently the weakest point and "Houdini" dogs typically target this area in their attempt to escape. In the Professional series, we have reinforced the door with extra bars, welds and bracing. As an added layer of security in the Professional series we have added a secondary locking plate to the door frame and to add extra value we also include a set of Heavy Duty Handles. Each door has a full-length piano hinge and can be mounted to open left or right. The Professional line of aluminum dog boxes are designed to be the most secure and safest of the Zinger crates.

1-Year Manufacturer Warranty

Zinger Sport Dog Gear Inc. (manufacturer) warrants that all hardware, powder coating, and structural panel components shall remain in good operational and structural condition for a period of one year from date of purchase. Warranty does not include metal and paint damage from the dog scratching, biting, drooling, urination, etc

90 Day "No Escape" Manufacturer Warranty

Our Airline Approved, Professional and Heavy Duty Series Crates feature a 90 Day, "No Escape" Warranty. The 90 days is usually enough to find out if the dog will remain contained. This warranty does not cover escape caused by improper assembly or use of the crate. This warranty ensures that we will work to see if we can rectify any issue to contain the dog, and if not we will refund the purchase price.  Any refund that may be offered would be subject to our restocking fees and less shipping.

Proper Sizing

Correct crated sizing is very important to the comfort and safety of your dog, especially if you are planning to travel with your pet on an airline.  Once you have selected the model that will best work for you and your dog follow the instructions below to find the correct size for your dog.  If you have any difficulty or get stuck, feel free to contact our experts for help.

STEP 1:  Measure your dog based on the diagram below

A = length of the animal from tip of the nose to the base of the tail.
= height of the animal when standing, from top of head (or ears, whichever is higher) to the floor - ears must not touch the top of the kennel when standing.
C = width at the widest point.

STEP 2: Calculate the size of the crate needed for your dog

The length of the kennel must be equal to A + 4"
The height of the kennel must be equal to or greater than B + 3"
The width of the kennel must be equal to C x 2.

IATA CR82 pet container crate requirements for air travel

A good rule of thumb is that when the dog is standing in a normal relaxed position the crate should measure 2 inches above the top of his head and 2 inches longer than the measurement from nose to base of the tail. The width of the crate should measure 2 times the width of the dog at its widest point but this measurement typically does not come into play as most crates are much wider than this. A visual indicator is ensuring your dog can comfortably stand up and turn around in the crate.
