I already have two of this brand. I am just replacing the two I own. I find that this is a better made product than others I have tried. I will buy no other brand.

Karen B on Jun 21, 2016
We used one at my parents' house while we were visiting, and were really impressed with the flexibility, comfort, and ease of set up. I could collapse it to fit into a small car, and then rebuild it inside, so I felt confident that it would provide safe transport for my labradoodle puppy regardless of the vehicle.
Kathryn S on Jun 13, 2016
Could not find this brand locally. Purchased for use in the car and need a crate with a long-side opening. NozToNoz are highly regarded.

Already have one and the zipper broke after 4 years
Robbie B on Jan 26, 2015
We have N2N carriers for our Shar Pei's Scarlett and Lucy. Great quality, rugged and easy to maintain. Our new girl Chubbs Leveaux just had to have one. All our four-legged friends travel in carriers.

How do you put this back together after cleaning? Cannot get the bars to fit in right.
HELEN M on Nov 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Did you take it apart to clean it? I never did that. I just shook it out and vacuumed the inside.
I need a new frame for 26 inch noz2noz crate how do I find one?
Lor W on May 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We do not offer parts for this crate
Does it have a hole for a water bottle?
Laureta T on Mar 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This item does not feature a hole for a water bottle.
what shape does the 30 inch fold down to? The diagram show the middle folding so it ends up the shape for the front but other pictures suggest the ends fold flat against the base.
Sharon F on Dec 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The ends fold flat into the base, so the dimensions for the 30" folded are approximately 30"l x 21"w x 4"h. It has a thickness of roughly 4." These crates are the best I have found. We now own 3 of them. They work great in the new SUVs because you can access the long side for entry. Be careful if your dog is a chewer. We made the mistake of putting a young puppy in our new 30" without securing the zippers at the top and the puppy worked the zipper and did some damage.
Do you send to Australia? Free postage please
A shopper on May 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there,

We do ship internationally through Bongo. Prices vary depending on weight and exactly where we are shipping to.
Our dog weighs 14 pounds. I need a portable crate to use so he can fly with us. Would this fit under an airplane seat? Our flight is only 1 hr 20 min.
JoyceS on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it would not fit under an airplane seat. My dog weighs 32 pounds and she fits very comfortably into this size crate. You need to buy a smaller size.
how do i get carrying handles ?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Only the smallest one (21") has carrying handles for carrying the assembled carrier.
Can the 26" crate be carried safely by the handle? My dogs are about 20#
Mary S on Aug 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have 2 Yorkies that total 14#. I haven't tried carrying them in it as they are pretty active. It is pretty large, so 20# would fit easily. We use one for crating at night and we purchased one to keep in our camper. We love it and the girls do as well!
How much does this 26 inch sir rate weigh without the shipping material?
A shopper on Jul 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Item weight is listed as approximately 12.75 lbs .
I have two older noztonoz crates which I love - take them camping and to trials all time. However, I need another one -- do the newer ones still have the tension pole setup on the upper edge and do the windows have rolldown covers. I need that feature when crated at trials?
N. W on May 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they have tension poles on the top edge that you get to the the zip open top. No they don't have roll down covers, so the picture online is not exactly accurate. (I just throw a sheet over mine.) Not sure what the straps on top are either. Mine has a carry handle on the side. Unfortunately the one I recently bought had a defective tension pole. Because I had an old crate of the same size (with a chewed-through cover), I just used the new cover on the old frame. I do like this crate though.
Can I start using this crate from when we first get our puppy? Or does he need to be crate trained first in a wire crate?
Kristen F on Feb 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can use this crate for you puppy, but remember they are mouthy. The explore their world and learn by putting everything in their mouths. Most puppies will chew anything they can get their mouth around and this soft crate may not hold up to a chewer. Also, crating a puppy is usually a teaching aid to help potty train them. They don't generally soil the place where they sleep. So if you are getting the crate big enough for the puppy to grow into, make sure you block off enough of the space so the puppy can just lay down and stretch his legs. I used a plastic laundry crate to block off the back portion of my larger adult size crate until my dog grew into it.
How big is the actual opening on the 30?
SpecialEd on Jan 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't have the actual measurements, as I bought the 42". There are front and side doors. Both doors only a couple of inches smaller than the crate side, so they are quite large. I use the 42" with my German Shepherds and they're very roomy and comfortable.
Does it have a hard or soft bottom?
Gary R on Nov 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The crate has a soft bottom because it is made of canvas and stabilized by extension rods that lock the shape of the crate. This crate is the choice of professional dog handlers, where the dogs are already crate trained. I highly recommend this product when you need to travel with a crate. We use 2 sizes, large (70# DOG) and extra large (85# DOG) when we are camping and when dog sitters or a trainer needs to confine one dog while working with the other. I put a crate pad in the bottom and they are happy campers. I also love the air flow and easy access to side loading. We have collapsible wire crates, but prefer the ease of setup (locking pins) and portability (light weight with a carrying handle) that are just as sturdy as the wire ones. They are also durable to dog paws, dog nails, and noses pushing against the mesh. GREAT PRODUCT!!!
Does this crate have an odor issue?
darlene h on Oct 6, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what you mean by this. All new items have a slight odor but we always air things like beds and pads out (outside) before allowing a pet to use it.

Or did you mean does the crate absorb odors from the dog? So far this hasn't been an issue for us.

Right now we have 3 soft-Krates in our bedroom. Each one has a fleece pad in it. To keep them from smelling "doggy," the crates are vacuumed and aired outside on the porch about once a month while the fleece pads are washed at the same time. And of course, the dogs are bathed as needed (but not too often to cause skin problems!!)

These crates are light weight and easy to set up. None of our dogs are chewers and truth is, we seldom zip them up. We bought them for travel but ended up using them all the time.
