K9 TraveSafe Dog Cages

Jesse Engineering Pty Ltd manufacture the K9 TravelSafe™ for the ute or truck driver looking to ensure the safety of their dog while travelling throughout the workday and weekend. No other method offers the securing safety for your travelling dog as a ute dog cage – and the K9 TravelSafe™ is the ultimate dog cage for utes!

The K9 TravelSafe™ is a unique Australian made Aluminium constructed dog ute cage. The K9 TravelSafe™ comes in a number of different standard sizes to suit both alloy ute trays and styleside trays, or can be custom built to suit any ute tray. The K9 TravelSafe™ is manufactured using high quality components allowing the dog cage to be secured and locked if necessary, and the quality latches ensure the dog cage door can not be opened unintended.

The K9 TravelSafe’s Aluminium construction provides rigid strength with the added benefits of being rust free and its lighter weight profile provides increased fuel efficiency over a steel alternative.

The open air design ensures maximum ventilation through the amplimesh sides while the aluminium tread plate roof provides shade, minimising the possible heat stress on the travelling dogs.

And remember, the K9 TravelSafe™ has been designed to give you peace of mind and comfort while driving, including no annoying rattles! We have been locally fabricating canopies and cages for over 15 years – our experience means we know what works and can ensure our customers get exactly what they want the first time, every time.

Our Standard Range

Kelpie & Staffy models

The Kelpie and Staffy models are our entry level ute dog cages for Tub style traybacks. These are both rectangular shaped cages designed to fit betweent he wheel arches of most utes. The door can be installed on either orientation of the dog cage but the standard orientation is on the longer side. Both ute cages feature an over centre latch that is padlockable.

Both these models start at $770.00 +gst.


The Kelpie model dimensions are 1050x600x835 high and weighs approx 20kg. This makes this dog ute cage ideal for single larger dogs or a couple of small to medium sized dogs.

The Staffy model dimensions are 1050x600x706mm high. This makes this model ideal for shorter medium sized dogs.

Both models have a 40mm angle that runs the length of the 1050mm side allowing the cage to be bolted into the tub. Alternatively, if bolting is not an option we recommend using S/S Turnbuckles to secure the cage.

Why Buying a K9 Travelsafe is your best choice

Enquiry Form


    Not all dogs are born the same, some are smaller and some are larger for their Breeds. While we have a general understanding of how comfortable certain breeds will be in each of our standard ute cages, we don’t know your dogs as well as you do. To know what model will best suit your dog we recommended getting some chalk and marking the dimensions out on the ground. Get your best mate to stand in the outline and make sure s/he can turn around and lie down comfortably.

    Absolutely! Just send us your postcode and we will find the best freight option for you.

    Bolting your dog cage to your ute’s tray bed is by far the most secure method of installing the cage. However, when bolting is not practical we recommend using Stainless Steel turnbuckles as the next best alternative. For turnbuckles to work you will need four tie down points in/on your tray so that you can attach a turnbuckle to roughly each corner of the cage. So long as you have four turnbuckles pulling in opposite but downward directions the cage will be held very securely.

    The Kelpie, Husky, SharPei and Staffy models have all been designed to suit most tub trays. However, not all ute trays are manufactured the same and some vehicles do have a reduced clearance between the wheel arches – meaning our standard models will not fit. Before ordering your cage, double check to make sure there is 1050mm clearance between the wheel arches. If you do have a tub tray that’s narrow between the wheel arches, just give us a call and we can quickly make up a custom cage / crate.

    Not a Problem! Just provide us with the minimum clearance between the wheelarches of your ute and we will custom fabricate a slightly smaller model dog cage / crate to suit your ute!

    All our quality latches have a built in safety mechanism to prevent the door from opening unintentionaly. Located on the handle of the latch is a small S/S lever, lift this lever up to unlock the latch.
