Rock Creek Crates was imagined in a garage by two buddies, Jed and Mike, who were tired of replacing cheap plastic dog crates. As a long time dog breeder and kennel owner Jed, knew they could make something better. In January 2020 the Carlsens brought in Shawn's experience designing and fabricating roller coasters, and Chalyce's years of helping her dad, Jed, raise puppies to help Rock Creek Crates grow. Together they have combined their “puppy love” and unprecedented structural skill to create a uniquely elite product. Their goal is to give your pup the most durable, safe, and functional crate out there. Our namesake, Rock Creek, is a tributary in the nearby mountains; a favorite spot of the “Rock Creek” family. Thank you for supporting our family business. Whether you are in the backyard, big city, or backcountry you can have confidence in your Rock Creek Crate.
