Dog Boxes

I am looking for something for the back of my truck to haul 2 dogs in, I have found a guy locally that makes nice looking aluminum 2 dog boxes for between $280 & $300, but they are not insulated. I was just wandering what everyones thoughts or ideas are? Thanks in advance for all responses.

That seem really cheap for a two dog, might be worth it to have him make it and insulate it yourself.

I built this one about 4 years ago, it still is in great shape, but I keep a good coat of stain on it yearly and keep it out of the elements when not in use. It is insulated and I keep a mixture of cedar chips and straw in for bedding, they have never been cold in there. I think I had about $225 by the time I was all done with it.

Finding a two dog kennel is really tough.

I ended up going with the "easy loader" plastic kennel ($220) but its very short for my labs. It would be great for Brittneys or Springers or something like that, but I wish it was 6" taller for the labs. They fit, but they really need to crouch. I use it because I want them to lay down and rest when they are in there anyway, but it wouldn't work for any long duration for kenneling them.

My brother has a really really nice one from NorthStar Plastics in Edgerton, MN but they are about $500+. If you can afford it, that would be the kind I'd very strongly recommend. Do a search for them and they have a good website showing their models.

Post your e-mail address and I will send you 3-4 sites to look at. A couple in MN and a couple out of state.

Thanks

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.

      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night

      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?

      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.

      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.

      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.

      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
