Petmate Vari Kennel is an appealing two-toned kennel made of high-quality durable plastic. It is a comfortable, well-ventilated and safe den for your dog whenever he retreats indoors or needs a safe spot when travelling by car or aeroplane. The Petmate Vari Kennel is easy to assemble and is fitted with non-corrosive plastic wing nuts to render great longevity. The eco-friendly recycled plastic shell acts as a great insulator in times of cold and wet weather and the side vents ensure good airflow. The Petmate Vari Kennel features a few functional designs to ensure your convenience and your fur friend’s comfort. The door is fitted with an easy-open squeeze latch and the kennel has an interior moat that will ensure that your dog remains dry in times of spills and leaks. Tie-down strap holes on the outside of the kennel allow for zip-tie installation and provide extra security during airline travel.
The Petmate Vari Kennel XX-Small and Small have handles and a built-in compartment for added comfort and storage, as well as a notch at the top to ensure that your little fur friend is safely strapped in when being transported.
The Medium Petmate® Vari Kennel® features a handle but is without a built-in compartment. The Intermediate, Large & X-Large Petmate® Vari Kennel® is suitably designed without a handle or built-in compartment.
The Petmate Vari Kennel meets the USDA & IATA requirements for air travel, but it is advised to contact the airline before travelling for verification of their specific requirements.
The Petmate Vari Kennel is custom-made to fit most every sized breed. To choose the perfect-sized kennel you need to carefully follow the measuring instructions. Allowing a range of 10 cm more than what your dog measures will permit him a perfect and comfortable space to stand up, turn around and lie down. Double-check to ensure that it does not allow too much or too little room to ensure his utmost comfort.
When introducing your dog friend to his new kennel, allow him to investigate the kennel on his terms. Position it where he will most likely sleep. When he shows interest, reward him with a treat. When he goes inside, reward him again. Venture towards shutting the door when he is relaxed and used to his new sleep spot. Open it if he shows any disapproval. Allow him the option to enter and exit freely. Placing treats, toys and bedding inside will contribute to a pleasant introduction. Only lock the door for short periods while you are still in the room before leaving him for longer times till he freely sleeps overnight in his new safe secure haven.
The Petmate Vari Kennel is easy to maintain. Simply wash with soapy water and rinse thoroughly and allow to air dry. Clean weekly and keep it looking good for years to come!
