Rated 4 out of 5 by Geesmom Wonderful except for the door
I happened to find this product in the store, and I bought for my dog, I had no problem putting together, but you should know it comes in the box in pieces, Rails, Poles and brackets, all have to be put in, also, you will need a 1/2 in wrench for the bolts and I also used a mallet for certain areas to snap together . Takes a while but I did by myself and no problems. The door latch could use improvement as it is a flimsy catch so I just used to cable locks on the top and bottom and the door is slanted and no I did follow directions its the way it was made. But the rest is square and fits well inside the room. My girl is an indoor dog only and I wanted to give her more room as she is older and we work all day. Does the job!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SGMR51 Overall, durable and roomy.
Our TWO great danes share this kennel during the night and have plenty of room to walk around. They are both well over 120lbs. It is tall enough that our male (stands over 6' tall) can't push it over. The only negative...the door does sag after a few jumps from a dog. It does stay hinged, just sags.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rescue1 Just bought this kennel today from Petsmart. It took my husband just under two hours to install. He felt that the instructions were decent..... It is just a little time consuming to put together. Incredible value for the money as it is very sturdy. My biggest complaint would be that the slats are VERY wide and all small dogs or skinny medium size dogs would likely be able to squeeze out of bars. Overall we are happy:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigdogmom1234 Excellent value and quality for the price.
I ordered on line and it was shipped free to my local store. This kennel comes in a 5 foot long box that is easy to load in your car (box is 5 X1x1 or so). All the posts are packed inside the frame pieces to ensure they don’t get damaged. All pieces are marked with letters that are described in words and detailed pictures in the instructions. My recommendation is to assemble it where you want to place it. I would first take out the pieces and lay them out by the alphabet markings and that makes it easier to find them when you follow the instructions. It does take a little more than an hour to put together. You basically put the gate together, make the bottom and side frames and simply drop the bars into the slots (that is most easy) and then you put the frame on the top. The only extra thing we had to do was tap some of the screws to get them to go though (so we could attach the securing nut). Other than that it was most easy to assemble. The finished kennel looks good. It is very sturdy. If you have a little dog I would add chicken wire or some sort of meshing around the inside around the lower side area as the bars are just far enough apart that a little dog may have issues without additional containment. I have medium and large dogs, so I am most happy. I would definitely buy more of these. Excellent value and quality for the price.
