Metal dog crates are typically the first type of crate thought of by perspective pet owners. They're a durable type of crate that can be used in a variety of situations. The OxGord Paws & Pals Folding Metal Dog Crate is an affordable option if you're looking for a crate of this type. Read full review here:
This crate is made from steel wire with an electro-coat finish that is corrosion, rust and fade resistant. For this reason, the OxGord Paws & Pals crate can be used indoors or outside. It also has an ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) plastic tray on the bottom that keeps any messes contained. This tray slides out for easy cleaning.
"Some owners do not like metal wire crates because they believe they look too much like a cage. They also worry that their dog may break one of the wires and injure himself. If your dog is a Houdini that tries to escape from any enclosure, a metal crate like this may not be the best choice for him. I would NOT recommend this dog crate for a dog that tries to escape!"
