I bought this crate to use in the car and for use at our vacation home so I would not have to lug the heavy metal crate around. I used it 2 weekend trips with no problems. Then an 8 day trip, on the last day she went into the crate no problem when we turned for lunch we were greeted at the door by my little escape artist. She figured out how to unzip the door. After lunch she went back in the crate no problem, about an hour later my son went to check on her and she had ripped a hole in the door and broke the zipper. I contacted Precision Pets and they would not offer any consolation. I asked for a new cover since the frame, pad and case were still good, but nothing. I used this crate for a total of 12 days now its out to the trash. Total waste of money. my 5 month old 22 pound puppy cut through the door like a hot knife through butter. Stick to the metal crates.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TedK A good crate, but doesn't hold up to abuse
I'm a SAR dog handler, so my dog spends a lot of time in my car, in his crate. This is the only crate I could find that would fit into the back of my Prius (the 23x24x36 size squeezes in exactly, with the rear 2/3 seat folded down), which is why I bought it. It's a well-designed product, but hasn't withstood the test of time, and my dog, a very clever high-drive 60-lb wire-hair labradoodle (who very quickly figured out how to open the zippers with his nose, requiring me to tie them together to prevent him from escaping); after a year of heavy use, the side door zipper, which opens out the hatchback of my car, has blown out completely and needs to be replaced/repaired. Admittedly, my nose probing doodle has put undue stress on the zippers, but I would have expected to get more than a year out of the crate, given its price. Make this product with higher-quality, more durable zippers, and I will consider buying another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KittyKatMommy Great product
This was just what I was looking for. The structure is very sturdy, no fear of it collapsing. The look of it is stylish and clean. I got the 42" long, x-large size to temporarily house my full-grown kitty cat as well as a good size litter box, a small square foam sleeping pad and her food/water bowls, with enough spare room for her to walk round or lay down and stretch. The crate also comes with a comfy foam pad that covers the entire base of the crate, which she loves stretching out on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeagleBasset We bought this because our rescue dog was afraid to ride. Because she was hit by a car before we adopted her, she hates cars and hates to ride in them. We thought if she couldn't see the traffic then she wouldn't be as nervous.
We bought a larger size than for her weight so she has room for a blanket and her toys. We laid a thin blanket over the top so it comes down on each side. It worked! Now when she gets in the car she immediately goes into her "house".
