Thank you for visiting us.
The whole ethos of our company is to give brilliant quality at a realistic price. We firmly believe that there is no substitute for quality, and our crates, cages, puppy pens and indeed all Croft branded products are manufactured with this in mind. It will therefore come as no surprise that when The Kennel Club selected a company to sell their products, they chose us.
Our company began in Wigan where we manufactured many high specification industrial products in welded wire mesh, and it did not take too long for us to include dog crates, puppy play pens and dog runs into our range,
Indeed, our Showman puppy pen panel range was designed following a problem we had with our own Scottish Terrier puppy who developed a liking for chewing our brand new dining room suite. Something had to be done! This puppy pen is still very popular today, and it has since been joined by our original design of the Crufts Freedom play pen which incorporates a strong tubular framework, in addition to the Concept and Alpine ranges of wire puppy pens. We have a depth of experience, and this is reflected in the quality of our designs. You may compare each design by visiting the puppy pen category page, but as always, if you have a question - please ask.
We have a wide range of designs and sizes in wire dog crates and cages, as well as our impressive soft dog crates.
Full details are online here, and you can quickly compare the various designs which include our original Showman crates, Crufts Dog Show (The Kennel Club) official wire crates and soft crates, Alpine economy crates and a choice of soft crates. Just follow the links above for details. We have also summarised each type of dog crate and soft crate below, so that your choice is more informed.
We began manufacturing outdoor dog runs in about 1980, and these are still popular today.
We have never compromised on giving the best quality, with all of our dog run galvanised panels incorporating a horizontal strengthening brace, with all panels over 1.2m (4ft) wide having at least one vertical support. The infill mesh we have chosen reflects our wide experience, and is 4mm in diameter (8g). This is a big difference to the mesh used in some cheaper products which is often only 3mm diameter (10g). This may not seem much, but it does mean our mesh has approximately 75% more steel than the 10g. alternatives.
The mesh strength and the inclusion of internal tubular supports is not found on most of our competitors' products, and this gives us an advantage, and you a superior product which is built to last!
Yet we have not restricted our range to dog crates, cages, puppy pens and dog runs - you will see that we have a superb range of the best in natural dog food, top of the range dog beds, grooming tables, trolleys, and so much more! Follow the links above to discover all that we do, and check the size of dog crate best suited to your breed, and dog cage best suited to your model of car.
Below are a few pointers where you can compare dog crates, and elsewhere on the site you will find best practice crate training tips.
We hope you enjoy browsing our online site, and thank you again for visiting us.

Scroll down to see 3 different styles of dog crate, or dog cage from Croft
Showman dog crates.are the crates for which Croft originally became famous.
They are coated in an attractive black and silver hammered finish, and are manufactured from 3mm dia. wire with a 3ins x 1 ins spacing.
They are generally available with an inclusive steel tray, although sizes 54ES, 60ES, and 72ES are supplied with a flat plastic sheet as a base.
All sizes fold flat when not in use.
Showman crates are available with either a single door in the short end or in the long side, or may also have TWO doors (extra cost).
Visit the Showman Dog Crate Page
Crufts approved crates.all have TWO DOORS as standard and fold flat when not in use.
They are lighter in weight than the Showman crate, primarily because they have a plastic base tray, rather than the steel tray in the Showman - so it does depend in whether your dog is likely to chew the tray as to which is best for you.
The Crufts cages are Kennel Club approved, and all carry the impressive Crufts Dog show logo on each door.
The wire used is heavier than the Showman, but the spacing is larger.
All Crufts cages are finished in a tough hammered silver and black coating.
Visit the Crufts Official Dog Crate Page
Alpine Extra-Value dog crates.is a very popular and lightweight two door dog cage, giving exceptional value for money.
THE 3 SMALLER SIZES ARE AVAILABLE IN BLACK, PINK, OR BLUE !
The range is a proven best-seller, gaining its popularity by giving excellent quality at a low price. Great value.
Lightweight in structure, Alpine crates include a lighter plastic base tray and are manufactured from wires of a smaller diameter than the alternative crate designs.
All Alpine crates are finished in an attractive black epoxy coating and fold flat when not in use.
Again, if your dog is likely to get restless, then the Alpine may not be for you, but if you have a crate trained dog who readily accepts a crate as his home, then the very low price of the Alpine range MUST be as attractive as the crate itself.

Compare soft dog crates.Soft crates have fabric outer walls supported by a steel framework. They are generally only recommended for crate trained dogs which do not chew or bite their surroundings. It s suggested that puppies - who do bite and chew - are first homed in a wire crate or pen, graduating to a soft crate as the chewing stage ends.

Crufts Official Soft Crates.An exciting range of soft crate bearing the 'Crufts' logo.
The special features with this crate include a top zipped pouch containing foldaway food and water bowls and security straps to be used for attaching the crate to a car boot harness or show bench. They also have a front 'D' ring on which may be used to clip an identification label.
As you would expect, these unique crates fulfill The Kennel Club requirements regarding benching at championship shows.
Complete with a free carry bag, the crates incorporate a strong tubular framework which is really easy to erect.
See the range of sizes.
Croft Classic and Sunburst Soft Crates.The main difference between the Croft Classic and Croft Sunburst crates is that the Classic range incorporate roll-down window blinds.
Apart from that, the crates are identical in all respects other than colour.
The Classic is available in either black and beige or red and beige, with the Sunburst being predominately blue with the array of side colour likened to a sunburst.
Size range is identical, and each are supplied with a free carry bag.
The internal framework is manufactured from tubular steel, with an easy to erect design.
Link to Classic and Sunburst crates.
Croft Fabrikennel.This is our original range of soft crates, and because of the design, it is also the lightest.
The Fabrikennel folds in a similar manner to a standard wire crate in that the two ends unzip and are then folded inside the box shape frame.
This easily folds flat, and fits neatly into the carry bag which is supplied.
The framework is wire, which makes it very much lighter than the tubular frame ranges above, although the strength is less. Because of this, the Fabrikennel is not recommended for the more boisterous dog.
