PetSafe® 2-in-1 Dog Kennel
maybe for small dogs
Purchased for my 55lb pitbull and its pretty much useless. I wouldn't recommend for any large dogs over 40lbs. I gave it to my neighbor and she uses it for her lap dog.
-construction. the instructions are vague to say the least. Recommended purchasing 200-300 zip ties to secure the top and bottom chain link to the frame.
-Durability. The chain link is very malleable meaning a strong dog can bend the links by pushing on them creating holes in either the bottom or center of the chain link big enough to get through.

Tough to assemble
This is a beautiful kennel when put together. It took me and my partner about 5 hours to assemble it. The lack of directions would be tough for someone who has never assembled anything like this before. The directions are vague, and consist of a couple of pictures.
The overall effect is nice and looks good, the height of the run is really great for taller people. If you have a puppy you will need to tie down the bottom more often then every 3 links and the gate does have larger holes for puppies to crawl out. Overall good piece for the price.

Overall, a good product for the price.
This is a good, high quality pen for the price and I would recommend it. However, to be picky: The directions could have been a little better as the dimension for the vertical post placement for opening containing door frame was not precise and required undoing and adjusting (i.e., it did not show or say whether it was center to center, edge to edge, etc.). Also, the picture in the directions showed the fence fabric on the inside of the frame as opposed to the outside of the frame where it is supposed to be attached. Also, if you are very particular as I am and if you do it right and get everything level, and square up the frame, and stretch the fabric properly, the set up time is much greater than the directions indicate. Other than these few "negatives", I was very pleased with the product.

Good for what we needed
The delivery Promised 7-10days and this was here in less than 3 business days. Very fast and could not have found this fence cheaper anywhere.
As far as the fence itself...it's working good so far for what we needed. We have two labs and just wanted to create a small kennel attached to the house so they could use the doggy door and let themselves out.
As far as the construction it is kind of flimsy but for the price we paid we just added a couple of steel ties to hold the fence to the supports. The only other negative would be the door mechanism itself (it's not very user friendly) but again we just bypassed that as this was a very cheap option. Overall it is a good product and allows our dogs to have a bit of freedom.
