Top Paw Double Door Dog Crate
Not a good crate for a strong or smart dog!!
The crate looked nice and was easily assemble which was great, but we encountered a few problems with it.
Our dog is around 80lbs, and the crate we purchased was one for dogs up to 90lbs. The latch system on this crate is sort of...easy to unlock. Our dog figured out that if you bump the latch enough, the door will pop open. So he escaped.
Needing the crate, we just chained both doors when we left so it wouldn't matter if he popped the latch.
WELL. Not even a full week after we bought it, and after chaining the doors...our dog completely bent the smaller door up and away from the cage base and escaped.
I DO NOT recommend this crate for larger dogs who are smart or strong.

Great dog crate
We have a 2 year old German Shepherd Basset Hound mix and it's perfect for her. She looks like a Shepherd but is long and short like a basset and she's 41 lbs. The 36" crate is perfect. I ordered it online and had it shipped to store. It was ready that day and they carried it to my car. The crate itself it great it's not too heavy and collapses easily for quick storage the double door is wonderful and the panel I could see handy for puppies we never used it though since our lady is full grown. All in all a great crate for a good price I'd recommend.

5 Month Old Puppy Escaped
Terrible. Not secure. Cheaply made. 5 month old puppy escaped after third use and then escaped multiple times : ( Destroyed the carpet in our newly built home!
Would NOT recommend.

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.
