We can arrange powder coating of all our standard and custom dog cages. We outsource the powder coating to a professional powder coater who ensures the cages receive the appropriate pre-treatment to ensure the best result. Powder coating will generally add 1 – 2 weeks lead time to the cag
Swinging or Folding partitions can be added to most of our cages. Obviously, the dog cage needs to be big enough first to provide adequate room when split. All our Partition options are removable and can be stowed away when not needed to allow the cage to operate as either a single or double dog cage.
