I can transport 6 dogs without doubling up. The box is made from a fiber glass truck topper. We took the windows out of the topper and covered the open space with MDO plywood. The doors were also cut out of MDO plywood. The dog boxes closest to the truck cab drop about 6 inches into the bed of the truck. This really helps keep straw in the boxes. It also makes me feel a little safer. The last two boxes are level with the truck rail, which gives me storage for taller equipment like water coolers. I put my short haired dogs in these shorter boxes to keep them warm. There is also a sliding glass door between the dog box closest to the cab, so I can open that up and talk to the dogs while I'm driving, or use it for extra ventilation in summer. I also had Plexiglas windows made for the doors, which can be screwed in with wing nuts if it's really cold outside. The sled is attached to the roof of the cab by a ski rack. I love this box!

This is a "summer dog box" I built this year. It's screened in on all 4 sides with hardware cloth, for maximum ventilation. The plywood top provides a nice area of shade. It sits on the wooden deck of my flatbed and has two compartments, which can hold 2 or 4 dogs comfortably. It functions great as a mobile kennel, or isolation kennel.
