Top Paw Double Door Dog Crate
My dog is too smart
I purchased this crate when I adopted my dog in February. It really is a good crate but doesn't stop my dog from escaping, she's recently figured how to do this. I have serious doubts about the "locking" mechanism as it's not as secure as advertised. I should have purchased one with a sliding mechanism like her big brother has. he stays put, she doesn't.

Locking system changed for the worse!
We bought this crate in a 36" for our new puppy last year and it is still great. Since our pup is about a year old now, we wanted to get him a larger day crate so we thought to get the same one in just a bigger size.
Since our purchase last year, Top Paws has changed there locking system on the crates and it is now a door that lifts up instead of the sliding lock. Our Vizsla easily gets out every time we put him in it and since he is a counter surfer, we come home to a mess. Luckily Petsmart has a good return policy and we got a full refund.
I would NOT recommend this crate for anyone with Top Paws new lift door locking system.

I purchased this crate in order to crate train my Golden Retriever puppy. I liked the adjustable gate that can be installed inside because I wanted to limit her space as she grew. After a few weeks, she figured out how to open both the doors, so it was impossible to keep her contained. I recommend a crate that has a more secure latch instead of simply lifting up on the door to open it.

My 4 month old collie/Aussie mix was crate trained prior to my adopting him and he loves laying in the crate with his toys, however the latches on the doors are not as shown. I too wish I had read the reviews prior to purchasing (before reading I thought he was Houdini) so that I could've gotten a better quality. The material is very weak (my dog is only 30lbs but can bow it) and you need add-ons in order to keep puppy inside. Luckily he is a good boy and doesn't get into any trouble when he is not crated. I will be returning this product and will be purchasing a better quality for him. All in all it's not the worst but it certainly won't work if your pup has the will to explore.
