Not that good
I bought this for airline travel for my 80lbs golden retriever. I got it today but small pieces are broken. How can i use this weak kennel for travel. I d like to get a refund. It is also heavy. 23 lbs. i think my dog can escape or break it easily. Waste of money : (

Good solid carrier. Very roomy and Miss Muffet has finally found a carrier she will go in.

Great design idea; plastic not sturdy enought
I really like the idea of lots of ventilation in a hard crate vs. wire crate. I like the dual opening doorway. Crate divider for pups is good idea. However, the instructions are very poor and even the diagrams are bad. I've put together many crates before and this one took me 30 minutes to get it right. The plastic is not hard enough or sturdy enough to make the "easy fit together" idea work as intended - as shown on video. However, once it's together it is sturdy enough (I hope) for a medium sized, well behaved dog in a 36" crate. A really strong dog that wanted to chew through the plastic would be able to escape in no time - especially if it started with the ventilation holes. A strong dog like my previous German Shepherd would have caused the plastic locks to break just by flopping down against the sides. I can see if you are breaking this crate down often the plastic locks won't last too long. If you crate train while the dog is young and small and leave crate assembled most of the time, this product will work.

Well built, functional dog crate
I just purchased two of these crates for my chihuahua's and they are wonderful. I had been searching for plastic crates for quite some time to replace the wire ones that I currently use. These crates are well ventilated and the door latches are easy to use. I also like the fact that you can stack them easily because of the indents on top of the crates. They also come in many convenient sizes. I don't like my dogs to be in a cramped space. These crates are just perfect. The color is wonderful and blends in well with neutral colors. Also like the fact that the doors open from both sides. Plenty of ventilation. Great quality at a great price. I would definitely buy them again. Only fault is that I wish they had a carrying handle on top and perhaps a top that lifted up so you could more easily clean inside without disassembling the crate. Very good product.
