Rated 1 out of 5 by Travino Allows Pets to Escape
I purchased this for my 10 month old German Shepherd pup.
We worked with him regularly before leaving him home alone in the crate. We put treats in it, sat next to him and praised him while he was in it. He knows where to go when we tell him to go in ti. He seems to have no anxiety when he is in the crate.
The first day we chose to leave him alone for four hours, we came home to the dog no longer in the crate, and he was running around the house.
Upon further inspection, all the pup had to do was push hard enough on the lower corner of the gate, and the dog was able to open the corner of the door enough for him to slip out.
Not a strong crate. I zip tied the second door shut, and any day I leave him home alone in it, I put carabiner clips on the gate, and I use bungee cords to keep it shut. Now he doesn't escape.
I bought the crate for big dogs, but the metal is not strong enough to contain a big dog with a will to escape. Don't be cheap like me, spend the extra $40 for big dogs to get a crate strong enough to hold your dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mitch What a crate
I have had many types of crates in my life, for many different animals, and I have to say - I've never owned one which I loved as much as this one. I originally bought the large, but as I have a puppy, I was using the divider which came with it. That in and of itself isn't the problem; the problem was that it was a bit more of a process than I wanted, to get in and put it up every time I broke the crate down to travel (as we do often). After my wife suggested I spend more money, and after a week of my grumbling, we broke down and bought this new crate - A medium, this time - and I have not regretted it at all. The crate fits wonderfully where it's needed, fits her perfectly (YAY! No more potty inside!) and as an added bonus, my wife gets to gloat! That being said, I do not regret purchasing this crate for one moment. The best part is, we kept the old one, so we now have a dedicated travel crate.

I bought this crate for my newly adopted puppy from the shelter. I think he approves of it! It looked new and was easy to set up. I placed the divider in there according to his size. The two doors are great to have. The tray slides out easily. I had at first bought a medium crate locally since he was 11 pounds, until I had a better sense of what size he would become. However, my puppy appeared to prefer my resident dog's large crate much better. So, I found a large Midwest crate online a couple of weeks ago through Chewy.com, at what seemed a reasonable price. My puppy is 21 pounds now. The reviews looked good. It arrived quickly. The only challenge I had was with the handles. I attached the two handles, which come with it, onto the top of the crate. My puppy got a hold of one handle and chewed it. I took both handles off. I will keep them somewhere else, until I need to move the crate. Good product so far!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rhonda Good crate - double door is nice
I bought this as a second crate so we would have a crate in the bedroom. Our other crate is a different brand and kept from my previous dog (2001). The new crate is a good crate and the double door is nice. I just hear the crate frame rattle when dog moves around in the night, but I am a light sleeper (my husband hasn't mentioned hearing it). If I didn't have the comparison I would probably rate this crate higher as it is a good crate...and priced less than my other crate even with a double door!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CKCC Great quality, unbeatable price
We bought the extra large crates and couldn't believe how well they were made and what a good value they were. Chewy is a wonderful online store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SMD57 This product is very easy to set up. It took less than 10 minutes!
My pet and we LOVE this product! As soon as it was set up and lined with snuggly blankets my pet was in the iCrate like a shot. She continues to enjoy it especially when she wants alone time!

I shopped around the 'brick and mortar' stores in my area looking for the same item. I found it at PetSmart for $90 plus, so when I saw it on your web site for $40.00 cheaper....well that's a no brainer.

My order came fast and the product was all that I expected. Easy to set up and the large fit perfect with extra room for our 70lb dog.
