Rated 1 out of 5 by Dogcatlizardmom Cute, not well made
We purchased this crate at our local Petsmart because we liked all of the features it offered. Two doors, a cute bed, and a cover.
Let's start with the doors: the first day our dog was in the crate he managed to paw the latch of the sliding door, push it aside, escape and wander merrily through the house, leaving presents on the rugs.
On day two we zip tied the sliding door shut since we were on to his game. Another fail for us. He was able to nose the swing gate up enough so that it unlatched, swung free, and escaped to leave us more gifts on the rugs.
Day three: we padlocked the swing gate. Haha! Take that dog. No escaping for you. Wrong again. He nosed up the gate and squeezed through the gap at the bottom. Awesome.
Let's talk about the cute little dog bed:
On day three our sweet little angel had a little accident on his bed. (He must have thought it was a rug.) So I read the washing instructions on the tag and followed them. Imagine my surprise when I open my washing machine to see it FILLED with green stuffing. Filled. To the top. Another awesom.
This crate gets an A+ for cuteness. But that's it. If you have an even moderately intelligent dog, do NOT buy this crate. It will escape.

My husband picked this crate out for our new puppy, and I was pretty skeptical. I mean what does, Martha know about pets? Not to mention, pricey! As soon as it was put together, I am convinced we will never buy a different brand of crates. I love how it's adjustable, and will grow with our 11 wk old pup. I also love that it includes a nice plush pad and a cover. Definitely do your research before making the purchase. We would have ended up spending the same amount of money, maybe more purchasing multiple crates that don't include all of what this one does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogshowmom I purchased two of these crates to use at dog shows for my Standard Schnauzers. The are "over-sized" and I was happy to find them, to give my dogs extra room at the shows. The ONLY "problems" I see is that the covers don't come in any other color but brown. I would have definitely purchased extra covers if you had a choice of colors. I don't use the crate pad, so that wasn't important to me. Again, it would be nice if Martha Stewart made a better crate pad made with supportive foam (like orthopedic) with a choice of colors. I'm going to try and dye my cover and see what happens.

I love this crate! I was skeptical on purchasing a wire crate, I always thought they were cold and prison like...until I found this one! It is like a cozy pet retreat. The crate is well made, coated metal. The cover is lovely and versatile. The pad is AWESOme Super soft and plush. Love the attention to detail with the subtle bone print on cover and coordinating pad without being kitschy, it helps it not to scream "I'm a dog crate". I got the medium sized crate for my cocker spaniel, it's perfect!
