Rated 4 out of 5 by Coco12 Perfect Size good quality
Perfect size for my Great Danes. Front and side doors are very convenient. Not an easy-up. Need another person to help. My smaller crates are basically fold up/snap in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OwnerOfABehemoth Great Crate!!!!!
Overall, this is a great cage and a great value. It's big enough for our Saint Bernard, to flop down in and snooze, while having a tall enough door that even when fully grown, he'll be able to enter and exit without crouching down. The tray (which several other brands do not include) is durable and easy to wash; an important detail for giant breed puppies! Crate is (as advertised) sturdy and tall enough for giant breeds. It is well-constructed, with a solid anti-rust coating and easily-operated locks. If your dog is a mammoth size, this is the crate for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Winsche628 perfect for my great dane
I looked for a long time and $179-180 is the cheapest I have found a crate this size. Our great dane "puppy" is 80lbs now and has plenty of room to grow. I wish we would have saved our money and bought a crate of this size when we first got him, because at only 23 weeks old he can't use anything smaller. The tray is very easy to clean, and the product is sturdy enough to last us a long time.

by kkezir Cheapest I could find :)
We have a Dane puppy that was quickly out growing its transitional crate. I tried to find a used crate but by the time I added up the cost of gas, time, travel and cost of crate, it was going to be cheaper to order it from chewy.com It arrived when expected. I was able to put it up by myself in 35min. Out 4mon old Dane puppy loves it!!! The 4mon old Dane, 7yr old and 9yr old can all fit in. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Irish2 Perfect our two Irish Setters to share
I purchased this crate because our Irish Setter Babies were getting to big for the double crate we were using. They had got too tall and need more room to stretch out.
This crate was a little difficult to put together but with the help of a very smart daughter who can put together anything she had it together in 10 minutes.
It is very sturdy and is very well worth the money. Prior to buying this crate I read the reviews and all were good with the exception of maybe 2 people who had a Pit Bull who ate their way out. Before I order I had to conclude that Pit Bulls will eat their way out of anything.
My Puppies love this extra large crate and they'd never try to make their way out. They love it like a new apartment.

by DeniseW Well worth the investment!
Our cat, Grace was hit by a car and fractured her pelvis. We needed a crate large enough to allow our cat to move around and still keep her safe during the healing process of 6-8weeks. This crate not only fit the bill but allowed us the added perk of actually climbing in and spending time with her! While the box was extremely heavy and horribly beat up, the crate and tray(now a hard plastic) arrived in perfect undamaged condition. It is solid, sturdy and secure. The bars are solid and fit properly together with easy assembly (aside from the bulky size to work with). I love the double door option allowing a variety of optional placements and access entry. While we purchased this for a cat safety situation, I would be confident in purchasing it for a dog as well. The only minor critique I would have it that the top is connected to the sides in a way where you cannot push the top up but does not clip so that the top cannot crush down. While it is sturdy and solid I did find that an odd bit of construction.
Customer service with Chewy.com was more than competent and accommodating. Not only was I pleased with the product, and fast shipping but also and most importantly with the quality of overall service the company provided in assisting me in choosing the correct product with peace of mind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by thistle67 BIG!!
We were debating whether to buy another XL for our 3yr old GS as his younger 'sis', a white GS had inherited his XL crate. This one is much, much larger. Our whole family can fit inside! It was semi-easy to put together,... with another person; directions lacked but it was well worth it. Something to consider if you are on the fence; your dog may have surgery and have to be sequestered, planned pregnancies need ample space, and anything else that may occur. Our black n tan, a totally well behaved boy in any situation looks so small in it and I feel less guilty locking him up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DS99 Good product, extremely poor packing and instructions.
The crate is everything I hoped for (size, sturdy), BUT, the packing was atrocious. The bottom pan came cracked and with a piece broken off (although I am going to be sent a replacement one, no extra cost, so that is good!). The top, bottom and sides came all locked together, which I couldn't figure out for the life of me! Turns out they were locked together with the corner rods (which I was told when I called).
Instructions were unclear, and pictures unhelpful. I've had to put the crate together twice to get it right. It would have been much easier had the individual pieces labelled very obviously. The descriptions, and hand drawn pictures were difficult to match to the real thing. I ended up putting one side of the crate in upside-down. Color pictures would have been nice, as well as a picture of the finished product.
There were bent parts where I had to fix with pliers.
Definitely need 2 people to put together.
