Pet Gear The Other Door Steel Crate & Fleece Pad
Our Shiba inu was recovering from knee surgery so we needed a crate that we could reach in to care for him and this crate serves that purpose with the large garage style opening. The plastic is rugged and the wheels help to move it. Only wish the latches were made of steel verses plastic. I don't think I can trust it over metal. Its a very strong crate that it behooves me that they would stop at the latches. I still like the design but it could be improved. almost perfect.

Home Sweet Home
Our puppy "Hatch" has taken to this crate like a fish to water. The portability is a great asset because it folds up to fit in our Mini Cooper. Makes a great travel aid when destinations are reached. I would like to see an improvement to the latch system. They are functional, but a little flimsy in construction, yet sticky and difficult for small hands like my daughter's. The pad could be a little denser as well.

Best of 3 Purchased
After getting a female boxer puppy we were in a hurry to crate. We purchased our first "metal cage type" at local pet store for the size she may become. Don't like it in the house and just a little too big for the dog which should not be over 50 pounds.
Second crate was a table type which was an improvement at least for in the house and will continue using out on our sun room but again just a little too large for our size rooms. Not a bad crate but only one way in and when open, you must either use a door stop or secure the swing from the inside. I used velcro.
This medium size crate is the perfect size. Works now and should work when she is an adult. Is mobile and soft corners make it less like to damage wood work when moving through house. She seems too love it. She enters via the end gate without too much encouragement and for now I often pick her up through the top for a an outside run.
Did my research for our particular dog and to date, this is the best I have seen. Would have given it 5 stars but haven't had long enough. JAC

Great garage door feature
I have used this type and brand of crate before and have two crates by Pet Gear that are 9 years old! Durable and convenient!

Love the product. Perfect for my pets needs.
Great product - The four doors are my favorite feature especially the garage side door. The only negative comment - The cage itself is top quality, but the plastic clips are cheaply made. I am hoping they will last the life if the crate. It took less than 5 minutes to put it together. I highly recommend the product.

Was so excited to set this up only to find our dog was able to get out it when we left her in it alone! So disappointed as it was exactly what I was looking for. Back to the drawing board. Need something more sturdy I guess!

Great travel crate
This is the third crate that we have purchased. We have traveled the country with the oth two crate but now needed a third one. They are sturdy and easy to put up and down. The dogs often sleep in their crates at night, with the side door open. The wheels are also a great feature. Highly recommended.
