by Dee2play Glad we bought this crate!
I have owned and used this crate for 6 months. In that time period my Siberian Husky has grown from 29 lbs to 57 lbs. He loves it and so do I. Here are a few ways we use it. 1. As a standard crate, a place for him to hang out when he's alone in the house. I pull it 1/3,of the way in front of a window so he can look outside while I'm gone. 2. As a place for his meals. With all 3 doors open it makes him feel like he's still in the room with us. Love the top door as it makes it easy to put his food in and refill his water bowl. Also the plastic bottom provides a spill proof tray for water that gets sloshed out. Saving my hardwood floors! 3. For his summer bedroom. We have a airline approved crate that he likes as well and is more "den" like; but this one could be made to mimic that with a cover. Being a puppy and a husky he has done some damage to the interior by chewing on it. But has never been able to escape. He's attempted to "dig" his way out but the only progress he's made has been to leave some scratches. I left a water bowl with him one day and he spilled it which caused the screws to show some rusting. He didn't like the pad - chewed a hole in it ... But then he chews up any bed he gets. It's fairly easy to travel with. I drive a convertible 2013 Mustang and it fits in my trunk with a bit of room for backpacks beside and on top (about 3 adult size ones). It's a little heavy (37 lbs) but still a doable size. This size is a bit challenging to assemble single handed, yet I do it all the time. I purchased the 36" crate. I'm about to need to bump up to the next size. If I had to do over again I would buy this one first in the largest size avail and then make or buy a crate divider that could be moved as the puppy grew. Concerned that a larger size might not fit in my car or may be too heavy for me to lift.
4 stars because I wish it were a bit lighter, single person assembly could be a bit easier, and screws need to be stainless or some other non rusting metal.

Bought this crate on sale and is definitely worth full price! I have 2 Morkies and bought the 27". Its perfect for them! Set it up by myself, it was so easy as it just folds up from flat! It's very sturdy! So happy I ordered it! Love the garage door!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Journie Great for our dog!
We have a youth center so we want something a little fancier then the black wire cage that could be used for a bed also. This worked out great for us and we are receiving so many compliments on it.
