It was late at night 1/10/19 when I was leaving my parent’s house to go home. I loaded my dog up in my variocage and started the short highway trip to my apartment. As I was exiting the highway I had to come to a complete stop to yield to oncoming traffic on the main […]
On Saturday March 23, 2019 I was driving on a country road. I dozed off, ran off the road, hit a tree, went through a barbed wire fence and ended up in a pasture, (no cows were harmed). My first thought was to get to Kiz, my little sheltie. She was the only one of […]
Two things were made clear to me especially after seeing the pictures…the BMW beautifully built vehicle saved my life, and the Variocage XXL saved my dogs lives. I blacked out and have NO recollection of the actual accident but apparently I stepped on the accelerator flipped both hood to end AND rolled. The vehicle took […]
I had a very scary thing happen this winter, I just arrived home in snow storm with very high winds from doing an overnight shift at work. I parked my van in the driveway and went into the house. No more then 10 minutes of being in the house, I heard a loud snapping noise […]

Fit, design, ventilation, and overall comfort for the dog, were features I was considering. Little did I know […]
When I first started looking at a Variocage, I was surprised at how much they cost. Are they worth it? Does the crate really do such a great job in a wreck? I am a sceptic by nature, so it takes a lot to convince me. After much debate, I decided that it probably was […]
One very early morning in September 2016, I was driving my Portuguese Water Dog Violet to an All Breed competition hosted by the Tuxedo Park Kennel Club. As I approached my exit from the state highway, the cars in the exit ramp quickly came to a complete stop. Just after I came to a stop, […]
I was in an accident today. A box truck ran into my RAV4 while stopped at a light. They were likely going 40mph or so. I had an empty double XXL Variocage in the cargo area. The divider was only secured by two bolts instead of the Normal five bolts. So the divider bent a […]
