Product Details:

Dakota 283 brings yet another solid kennel to the game with their new line of G3 framed door crates. Each one is created using the rotational molding process and from high grade Polyethylene which forms a single-shell product that will flex slightly, but resist surface abrasions and extreme impacts. It is the same process used to make military-strength cargo containers and heavy-duty fuel cells, so you know it will protect and keep your dog safe. 

The deep, wide interiors are enough to hold nearly any size dog (or other similar sized animals). The G3 kennels are dimensioned to maximize the rear interior of most trucks, SUVs, and hatchbacks (that are 48 inches wide or more) sitting side-by-side. If your pet has an "accident" the plastic is easily rinsed and the small, rear-facing holes allow for easy drainage. There's plenty of air circulation with 16 total for the Medium size and 20 total for the large and up. Thanks to the double-hinged door, access is never a problem. The door can swing from right or left and can be completely removed with ease from the outside.

On the top you'll find a large grip-handle that makes lifting and maneuvering the Kennebec Kennel G3s a snap. The walls are tough and rugged, able to absorb impacts while the corners remain virtually impervious to crushing, cracking and other damage. These crates can also be stacked to save room in indoor areas with a separately sold stacking kit. This is ideal if space is limited and dogs are plenty. Similar to the NG but without feet, the G3 Medium glides more easily across surfaces. This is ideal if you don't require the crate to be raised and prefer the sliding action. By running straps through the top handle hole, the G3s can be locked in for a permanant stay in the back of virtually any vehicle. If you care about the safety and comfort of your pets, get a Kennebec Kennel G3 today.

    Dakota 283 - Ships Freight from Lake City, PA

    • Due to our high volume of orders, it currently takes about 5-10 business days before we are able to ship a Dakota 283 Kennel.
    • Additional transit time will depend on your location, based on the Shipping Map below.

    US Time in Transit Map


    LTL (less-than-truckload) Freight is used when shipments are 120 lb+ or for oversized equipment, which results in a truck with a large container delivering your order. Our freight carrier will contact you once your order makes it to the distribution center closest to the delivery address specified, and set up an appointment time for delivery.

    Pet Pro Supply Co. Free LTL Freight Shipping - Curbside Delivery

    Our standard Free Freight Shipping option for LTL deliveries is curbside, which is to a delivery to a Commercial Address and does not include a liftgate. If your order is to be shipped freight, you will have the option to specify whether the item will be delivered to a Residential, Limited Access, or Commercial address. If there is no option to select a shipping location, then this cost ia already included in the price.

    We strongly recommend adding the optional Liftgate for all deliveries to locations without a loading dock or forklift.

    Freight Delivery Locations

    This option specifies whether the delivery location is a Commercial, Residential, Residential Business, or a Limited Access address.

    • Commercial - These addresses are those defined by our freight carriers and/or zoned by local municipalities as commercial sites. Typically these addresses are zoned as commercial real estate or are used exclusively for business. Most commercial sites have tractor-trailer access and a loading dock.
    • Residential - If the address used a residence, select this option. This includes Apartment/Condo complexes and dormitories.
    • Residential Business - Any business being operated from a home, apartment, or other dwelling where people live on the premises is considered to be a Residential Business.
    • Limited Access - Locations where deliveries are restricted, limited, or very far from a distribution center. Examples Include:
      • Place of Worship
      • Restricted Areas - Secure Research Facilities, Military Bases/Installations, Correctional Facilities, Government Buildings
      • Farms, Ranches, and Rural Areas
      • Recreational Areas - Camps, Parks, Fairs, Carnivals, etc.
      • Individual Storage Units
      • Sites - Convention Centers, Construction Sites, Mines
      • Schools and Universities
      • Commercial establishments not open to the walk-in public during normal business hours

    Freight Liftgate

    A liftgate is a hydraulic lift that is attached to the back of a truck that can lower freight to ground level. Freight carriers prevent their drivers from assisting with the unloading of heavy equipment other than using a liftgate to ground level. We highly recommend any delivery address without a loading dock, select this option.

    However, please know that for certain very long items, such as Kennels over 6' in length, a Liftgate will not be able to bring the entire order down to ground level. Please have the necessary manpower available to receive your items with limited delay to the driver.

    Love it

    The best dryer I have ever owned. The customer service was even better, I was notified when it came to shipment progress and didn't have to check every now and then. Keep up the great work!!

    Hale doors

    These are incredibly great doors, been using for years. Had addition done so needed another. Was great I could use amazon account to pay, makes it so much easier to process order.


    We installed the Hale pet door when we build our home 13 years ago. It truly is the best dog door I’ve ever seen. So after 13 years of two dogs going in and out all day we needed a replacement flap both inside and out. Now it looks just like the day it was first installed and we are very pleased that we could get the same replacement flap. Great service.

    Endemic 3002

    This dryer is awesome.

    Double MIM Variocage

    Awesome product. Our giant breed puppies would alway whine when taking trip in car with regular travel kennels. In the Variocage they are totally silent and go to sleep right away. I think the bumper cover which folds up over the back to block direct sun light also makes a difference as they are not confused when looking out by the trees flying by or other cars behind us.
    I erroneously did not order spill proof water bowls nor a large ramp at the time and realized it after the fact. All the equipment is well engineered as you would expect from the Swede’s.
