Rated 4 out of 5 by Whatever Does not have sufficient venting for international travel
This item does not have sufficient ventilation for international travel for pets. Dimensions were spot on but holes are required on all sides. Drilled holes and used it anyway,

Rated 4 out of 5 by Linda Better than most
Although this kennel is not made from the heavy duty plastic of earlier Vari Kennels that I have purchased over the years, it is adequately constructed and held up to airline travel very well. It is better constructed than many of the other kennels I examined--most were made of even flimsier plastic than this newer version of the Vari Kennel. (It did come with about 6 extra screw/nut pieces which is nice because those pieces seem to loosen and fall off all the time.) One thing that I did do is drill additional holes--about six--and use zip ties between the bolts. Since many airlines are requiring zip ties instead of/in addition to bolts, it would be nice if the manufacturer just added the extra holes in factory. I also drilled two holes above the door and two below the door as the airlines requires zip ties so the door cannot be opened unless ties are cut. Ditto nice if done in factory. It is very easily assembled and taken apart, although I much preferred the older wing nuts to the new 3-prong ones the co. is now providing. The kennel does NOT come with the travel kit like it used to, which is inconvenient, since I purchased it specifically to fly a dog.

Rated 1 out of 5 by doozledorf not the quality I wanted
I show my dogs and wanted something good and strong...checked crates at all the local dept. stores and all were flimsy.....So I remember I had a very kennel at one time and loved it so I got on line and ordered 2. they got here very fast but was not happy once I opened the box..they were not what I use to have...they are flimsy... I wish that vari kennel would of kept up their quality and charged us more money than to cheapen it and save a buck...

Well, thank you for Chewy.com company's fast and kind services. I liked this Kennel type carrier on internet pic.
But the handle on the top looks really weak to hold, the plastic is very thin,too. I can say good enough for my 11lb dog.
By the way I tried to put some products that I am going to need or buy in my shopping cart, but one day they were all gone, and I'll tried to save other stuff in my shopping cart today again. It is not working,either. Is there problem here on this site??
I have to save them again someday in my shopping cart. It will take some time to find the same stuff that I am going to need near the future.
Anyhow, I want to recommend Chewy.com strongly, because of the price, good products, good services. I wish I always have money to buy what I need.^o^
Go,Check! what's on sale today!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PhillyRatRescue I run a pet rat rescue, and chewproof carriers are hard to come by!
We have tried a wide variety of carriers that rats cannot escape from, either through the front grate or chew through the plastic somehow. We have been using Petmate Look N See which were half metal and worked fine, but we lost one when someone didn't return it, and now we find out they are not being made anymore!
So, we decided to try this one. Varikennel has a good reputation, and this one seems to be escapeproof and chewproof from the inside.

I'm glad that Petmate has added Vari Kennels to their line up of carriers, and at such a good price, too!:-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by DMS329 Just what my pocketbook was looking for
Very good price for a very good product compared to other suppliers. I am a very long-time user of Vari Kennels and their quality never varies - meets my expectations today as in they have in the past. One of our dogs has separation anxiety, so the construction of the kennels keeps her from flinging saliva outside the crate. I ordered 4 in various sizes, all boxed separately, so the fast free shipping was a big decisive factor in my ordering.
