 Product Description

The 500plus® Kennel Extension Kit will add a little more than 3 inches to the height of your existing Sky Kennel XL, Vari Kennel XL, Grreat Choice XL or any Petmate 500 size dog travel kennel

(40″L x 27″W x 30″H OUTSIDE Dimensions {Advertised size} )  After Kit installed on XL 500 kennel  the kennel's Height will measure 84 CM to 85 CM = 33.50" H

 CAGE IS NOT INCLUDED - DO NOT PURCHASE  UNTIL YOU HAVE A 500 XL KENNEL AND HAVE MEASURED YOUR DOG. THIS KIT WILL NOT EXPAND LENGTH OR WIDTH ONLY HEIGHT. RETURNS ARE SUBJECT TO A 50% RESTOCKING/RENTAL FEE.

Check with your airline for size restrictions prior to ordering.

 Luftansa Air  maximum height is 85cm or 33.50 inches so your kennel will still fit into Luftansa's cargo doors. 

If your dog is traveling internationally the airline NOW requires for the safety of your dog a full 2-3" of extra head room above your dogs head or tip of ears (in pointy eared dogs).  If you have an existing 500 size kennel that your dog is acclimated to and fits your dog but lacks the extra head room required, the 500Plus Kennel expansion kits are the perfect accessory. They easily modify your 500 XL dog kennel into airline compliancy. Simply add the two metal rails in between the top and bottom and install the new bigger steel door and you are all set.

The kit is 100% hand installed, no tools or hardware needed or required. Simply set the two rails in between the top and bottom of the kennel. Then install the new door and thread the provided 5.5" bolts with metal washers through the existing kennel bolt holes and secure with the reinforced Metal Thumb Nuts (all provided in the kit). That is it... as easy as putting together the original kennel and your kennel is now 4 inches taller and will now provided the extra head room required by your airline.logo-kennel-extension.jpg

  1. Fantastic product!

    Posted by Nidhi on 25th Jan 2016

    I bought the extension kit for the Vari Kennel XL. The size of the crate was just right for my yellow lab but the height was short.
    The extension is made out of metal. It fit perfectly and had all the required nuts, bolts and new door that was required for international travel.
    Thanks DryFur!
    Very well made, good quality product.
    Also, Lisa was extremely helpful. She answered all my questions and even sent me pictures!
    Thanks!


  2. Well made

    Good product that works exactly as advertised. Be aware that the added height might not fit on United 737's.

    RESPONSE: this will depend on the brand of kennel you are extending, The Grreat Choice XL is about 1/2" shorter in height. Please refer to blue print and be sure to check with your airline prior to purchase as suggested.



  3. Great product!

    Worth every penny - the parts are very well made of metal, not plastic. Everything is carefully machined and fits perfectly. Extra parts are given.


  4. Great extension kit

    Posted by E. Heinfling on 20th Apr 2015

    I have a "Petmate VariKennel Ultra extra large" and this extension kit fits perfectly and was very easy to install. While only 15 screws, washers and nuts are needed, the extension kit even came with extra screws, nuts and washers.
    I can definitely recommend this extension kit.
    I was also very impressed with the outstanding customer service at Dryfur. Fast and proactive replies and follow-up emails, until the ordered shipment had reached.
