Specifications we’ve worked to previously

Because one size does not fit all

Below are just a few specifications we’ve been asked to work to. If you have a completely unique idea of how you want your custom built dog cage to fit into your vehicle, you just need to give us a quick call. As vehicle specialists also, we can adapt and modify the vehicle to suit you and your dog’s needs.

Extra storage space

Additional storage for dog treats, leads etc. A separate storage unit for personal belongings which can be locked securely

Inside access to dogs

Inside access to dog cages as well as from the outside. For those times you need to get to your pup without having to leave the vehicle.

Theft prevention

Secure lock to prevent any theft of your belongings inside the vehicle, including your dogs.


Bright purple painted cages to match the colour of the dog owner’s personality.

Product Options

One size does not fit all

We offer different types of matting to suit you and your dog’s personality such as paw print matting. We also offer roof vents, jump boards, door guards and additional storage units for your vehicle. To top this off, we know that having a colour that suits you is something many dog owners like to choose, so we offer a wide range of colours to give it that personal feel.


We offer a range of matting types to suit you.


You tell us what storage you need and we’ll design it to your specification.

Door Guards

We understand that your dogs are precious and sometimes they’re at risk from other people. So we offer door guards to help.

Air Vents

It can get very humid in a vehicle, especially if you and your dogs are sleeping in there too. So we can install air vents to help.

How does it all work

How we work with you to complete your customised dog cage.

We need to first work out what space you are looking to fill. We help you to spec out the vehicle and work with you to design a concept that will work for both you and your dogs. From then on, we will build the frame on our premises. We will arrange with you when to drop your vehicle and collect it so that we have time to build and install the cage safely into the vehicle.

Frequently asked questions

Below are a few questions we get asked regularly. If you have more questions you can contact us.


What type of materials do you use for the dog cages?

We use steel for the mesh of the cages. However we ensure that we spray paint the steel to high quality finish to prevent rust and wear. We can a variety of mesh sizes depending on the needs of the owner and to ensure the dogs don’t bite into the steel itself.

What information do you need from me to get started?

We will need the following information to hand:

1) Vehicle make, model and year

2) Desired cage layout – if you need help with this call us

3) The size of your dogs. Dogs can vary in size, so it would be ideal if you could measure your dogs whilst it is standing, from foot to head. The length of the dog is also very helpful fo us to calculate the depth of the cage required.

What colours are available?

We can make pretty much any colour you like! We don’t shy away from a challenge! We’ve been to paint the cages a bright green, purple, bright pink, black, silver, grey, royal blue, bright blue, yellow and orange so far.

What areas in the UK do you cover?

Primarily we cover the East Midlands area but we have been known to send Mike Bunday on adventures across the South of England and through the Midlands. Mike is used to travelling as part of his old career fixing all types of transport vehicles (including lorries, cans, golf caddies and more) so if you are from further and beyond don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can pack him some sandwiches.

What payment type do you accept?

We are happy to accept the following:

1) Bank Transfer

2) PayPal

3) Cash

How long does a build take to complete?

It varies depending on the complexity of the project but for a simple cage build we would need just under a week to ensure we provide a high quality finish and allow for the paint to dry.

Do you need to keep my vehicle?

Yes we will need your vehicle for the duration of the build. Everything is custom built for each vehicle, therefore we will need to keep your vehicle to measure up and install.

Are colours an additional cost?

No, the colours are included in the price, regardless of what colour you choose.

Do you build crates for home use?

Yes we do. We can build to your measurements and arrange delivery for you. Contact us with measurements to hand and we will give you a quote.

Had my cages fitted a while ago (sorry for delayed review Mike!) Fab service, high quality cages (the dogs love ’em) Highly recommend this business. 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kathryn Williams


I absolutely love my cages in my VW Caddy. Amazing quality, look amazing and exactly how I imagined them being (after months of planning) Thankyou SO much ❤️

Kevin Ashley


What a brilliant guy Mike is. He can build anything you want. I explained to him what we wanted and he also offered us some great advice. He is very easy to work with and explained everything to us so easily. The quality of the build is absolutely brilliant and the finish is perfect. The cages maximised every bit of space there was in the van. The dogs love the cages and find it very easy to get in and out of them. Everyone who has seen the cages has asked where we had them done. Highly recommended. If you are thinking about having dog cages fitted – this is the man for you! Many thanks Mike.

I’m absolutely over the moon with my fitted crates by Mike at Canine Cage Craft. His work is of such high quality and his prices are extremely competitive. He was actually the cheapest I could find, but in my opinion the best finish! Mike is a lovely bloke and even fitted me a few extras, like paw print rubber floormats in the driver and passenger sides, which just shows his passion for providing a great service. I would and will recommend him to anyone 👌🏻👍🏻 thanks Mike!

Elaine Ashley


Was really helpful love my cages. Gave me some great advise. Cages where ready as promised. Even made me some mats for my cab.

Staci Thomas


Great communication, fast responses! Mike was great with helping decide how to have my cages and he has done a fantastic job in a timely manner. I’m in love with my cages, thanks Mike.

Kate Summers


We collected our transit custom at the weekend with the cages all fitted, and we are absolutely thrilled. The workmanship is second to none and your advise was ” spot on” with everything. The limo tinting to the windows is really effective and gives a classy finish. Thank you Mike, especially for going that”extra mile” and finishing on time even though you had a day without power. We would highly recommend your services to the most discerning of customers.

Francesca Pardoe-Lamb


Absolutely outstanding job; 3 large cages fitted into my Nissan Juke for my dog walking business. Incredibly well built, every inch of space was put to use and the quality is outstanding. The cages are fully removable and the touches like the blue paintwork and paw prints really make this the best I’ve ever seen. Cannot recommend enough!

Sarah Campbell


Delayed review because wanted to properly use the cages and give a genuine review! What can I say, they are perfect! Just what I wanted, no rattling, dogs love having more space than before and using the jump board! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend, in fact I already have!! Thank you!!

Phil Meredith
