I bought this crate to help keep my 8 year old German Shorthaired Pointer safe in my vehicle. It's easy to break down, and she has no complaints about getting in it. It isn't something that I would ever crate her in for long unsupervised periods because of the material, but for the purpose I bought it for of restraining her in my car while I'm driving and encouraging her to "chill and lie down" while not feeling imprisoned, it works perfectly. She hasn't made any effort to chew the mesh, and I don't expect her to because she can still see out the windows of my car, which is her sole requirement for not feeling trapped. It does take up a lot more room in my car than a plastic crate would, but it's 110% worth it for my dog's safety and sanity. My dog feels comfortable in this crate, so anytime she is somewhere where it is necessary to crate her for short periods of time (ie: at horse shows, at work, hotels, etc), I know that she will be comfortable and happy as long as I don't ditch her by herself for too long. The people who are using this crate for anything but short term "storage" are just asking for trouble. I'm sure that if I left even my very well-behaved and trained 8 year old in there all day, she would get bored and sick of being cooped up in a box and try to escape too. My advice: train your dog better, or buy a crate meant for your situation, not one meant for travel and short-term crating.

by Stonesour73 Used it once
Went to get my girlfriend from work and placed our dog in the crate. In the 4 minutes it takes to get to her work place and him he busted out of the crate. I spent my hard earned money on this thinking hey this will be great since we travel often....little did i know it would break the day after i bought the thing. Going to try and get my money back tomorrow...hopefully the store will refund me or the company that sells this terrible product will refund it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointedowner worst purchase ever and probably most expensive
I bought this for my dog who is crate trained to give her something softer to spend her time in when I'm gone. Plus, it did look easier to break down than her metal crate for when I have her stay with a friend when I'm gone. My dog chewed through the mesh "door" in front and got out. She's not a chewer--she's 8 years old. Definitely a design flaw to put such flimsy fabric on the opening. If it were only half of the opening, then it would have been fine, but to put it on the whole height of the opening was a huge mistake. This was EXPENSIVE, by the way, and now it's useless. Good thing I didn't give away the metal crate, although I hate breaking that one down. I want my money back.

Used ONCE and my dog busted out of it, breaking the crate beneath the opening. Completely useless piece of junk.
