About us

Impact Dog Crates are made by the “Impact Case” division of Heater Craft Marine Products, Inc., a family owned business located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in North Idaho. Our employees love the natural beauty of the outdoors and their dogs are always part of the many activities the area provides, be it hiking, boating, hunting or just watching sunsets. Our employees make your cases just as if they were making the case for their own dog.

The first product originated in the garage of Michael Bailey, the company’s President. Bailey created a heater with flexible tubing for boats so that customers could stay warm in their boat, dry off after water skiing and prolong their time on the water. Now these heaters can be found on ATV, UTV, golf carts and other outdoor vehicles.

All our Impact Dog Crate products are made from high-grade aluminum to create durable but lightweight crates, letting you rest assured that your dog will be protected, safe, secure and comfortable. This is our vision and we are dedicated to this goal. We have also developed a fan system for our crates to cool your dog on hot days. This product innovation and continuous improvement is important to our growth and customer satisfaction.

Our sales manager, Ed Thomason, trains, shows and judges and can be seen at dog shows around the country and in Europe. We love to hear his stories about the shows and the acclaim and reputation our crates and accessories are gaining. If you have a story about your dog or any of our products or suggestions, we would love it if you would share them with us.
