Designed with the safety and comfort in mind for your dog, our Mimimax dog travel crate offers a secure space for your pet to travel. The Minimax has a built-in, robust locking system with key that will help to protect your dog from theft, although we would never recommend leaving your dog alone in your vehicle. The crate features a one-hand easy release mechanism, perfect for when you need to open the door quickly while holding your dog and the gas spring system ensures that the doors remain open while you are loading dogs into the vehicle or training them to stay inside. The cage is practical and easy to use both in and out of the car and the depth is adjustable so that you can achieve the best fit for your vehicle.
All the MIMsafe UK VarioCages have been crash tested in situ in the vehicle to ensure that they protect dogs, passengers and driver*. In the case of an accident, the Minimax dog travel crate will compress in a controlled way along the vehicle crumple zone, protecting both passengers and pets from an increase of injury. Each cage is equipped with an emergency exit in case the front door is ever blocked.
The Minimax variocage is perfect for small dog breeds including toy poodles, West Highland White terriers, French bulldogs, pugs and Jack Russell terriers. It will keep your small dog safe and secure, and you within the regulations of the highway code while travelling with your pet. Travelling with an unrestrained pet in your vehicle could lead to a hefty fine and invalidate your insurance in the event of an accident.
The cage will be delivered flat-packed, assembly instructions can be downloaded on the Assembly page of our website.
