Rated 1 out of 5 Poor Design or REALLY smart dog!
We bought this for our 9 week old English shepherd. The second night in this crate, she figured out how to escape! We thought the first time was just a fluke, and that we must not have put the latch hook down. But after her second, third, and fourth escape we knew she figured it out and we had to bungee the doors shut to keep her in! There is actually a YouTube video of someone's dog doing the same escape trick!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LF01 needs better locking system
Easy to assemble for us... and our 11 pound dog.. it took her about 5 minutes to get out using the door. All you have to do is lift up on it from any point on the door and it comes open. We are returning it for this reason. We had to tie it off with a rope to keep her confined...

Rated 1 out of 5 by 12345tk Horrible! Don't buy this crate!!
This crate is horrible. Our puppy has managed to escape so many times, I've lost count. He started escaping when he was just 9 weeks old, and roughly 8lbs! I thought it was human error at first, but then I realized that no matter who puts him in his crate and how correct they do it, he would still escape.
We started using a caribeaner to reinforce the lock. Why would we need to do that ? This is not excecptable when you spend $70 for a crate.
He escaped again last night and we came downstairs to chewed up papers and #2 mashed into the rug.
I hate this crate!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by data314 I recommend this
We have been using the large dog crate for 3 years and have had no trouble. One time our dog got out and was running around the house when we got home. If that happens it's really easy to use wire, zip-ties, or even small locks or carabiners to keep the latches shut. It's not a big deal. I am buying another one today in a smaller size for a small dog we have now. Our dogs love these as their safe place. When loud noises such as fireworks frighten them, the first place they go is into their crate where they feel safe. I feel comfortable with these crates because my dogs like them. The large one also serves as my night stand on my side of the bed, I just cut a piece of particle board for the top. Good crates!
