Benefits of Truck Bed Dog Boxes

While your pooch may love the open air, riding in the back of an open truck is unsafe. Sudden turns or stops could create a situation for potential injuries. Even that fresh open air has the potential to cause flying debris into their eyes, resulting in unnecessary vet bills and a pup that doesn’t feel good. Weather is the key factor in why you should consider a truck bed dog box. On warm and sunny days, those rays are heating up the metal truck bed. Along with being hot on your dog’s paws, it raises the heat in the truck bed. That means an environment with an increased risk for heat-related illnesses. On the flip side, unexpected rains or snow leave your furry friend exposed to harsh elements. The safety factor aside, these boxes are designed to add a pleasing aesthetic to your ride and are easy to install and use.

Selecting the Right Dog Box Size & Material

While there are many crates and other options available, an aluminum dog box has become the most popular option. These aftermarket boxes are designed to fit securely in your truck bed, giving you peace of mind that your dog will stay safe. Aluminum is a durable yet lightweight material that can withstand weather conditions. As opposed to steel, which is heavy and easily rusts, or plastic, which moisture and varying temperatures start to degrade, aluminum is durable and corrosion-resistant.

Getting the right box is a must. While you may think you know how big your dog is, the best bet is to measure your pooch to ensure you don’t get something too big or too small. It is ideal to measure across the shoulders, from head to tail, and from the ears down to the floor. Ideally, you want your dog to be comfortable yet snug, preferably able to stand yet travel curled up to avoid injuries in case of any jostling.


Note that many states prohibit dogs from being transported unsecured in the bed of a truck, and that's for good reason. Allowing your pup to roam free makes him susceptible to injury from getting tossed around or hit with debris. Of course, curious canines may also be tempted to hop out of a truck at the first sign of something to chase. What's more, many nervous or anxious dogs do not do well when left unsecured in the bed of a truck. However, it is legal, safe and humane to use one of these secured pickup dog boxes to keep your pet secure in transit. Please note two important safety considerations:

  • Do NOT leave your dogs locked in a hot car in these crates!
    These dog crates are NOTdesigned to be mounted to the hitch of a truck or SUV!
