  • Measure AND weigh your dog for correct crate size.

    By on

    First off, this isn't the best quality crate for airline travel, but as long as you don't have a crazy chewer, than it should work just fine. We used it to fly our pointer from coast to coast and she did fine. I ordered another one for our hound rescue, but unfortunately, even though his weight fell within the crate specs, he is too tall for the large size. Chewy was, once again, absolutely fantastic to work with on the return. I cannot recommend Chewy enough to anyone wondering if they should try them. YOU WILL LOVE THIS COMPANY. The rep that helped me with the return was wonderful. Thank you, Janny S.!

  • Bumpy Bottom

    By on

    The kennel would have worked but the channel on the bottom is more like a moat and there are a couple other bumps in the middle of surface that my puppy would chew on. The bottom of the crate would be ok with a mat, unfortunately my puppy would chew that too. Customer service at Chewy is amazing. They refunded the price without any issues....love this company.

    We highly recommend Chewy as a company. The customer service was fantastic, very quick delivery and a good quality product which ticked all the boxes. Far exceeded other competitors in the business and will definitely use Chewy again.

  • Pleasantly Surprised - Glad I gave it a try!

    By on

    I purchased the medium size Petmate kennel for our puppies because they had outgrown the small ones we purchased locally when we adopted them. When I received the container it seemed HUGE. I thought they sent the wrong size. I didn't like it - was going to send it back - thought it was to lightweight. SO GLAD that I decided to give it a try. Our pups LOVE it, I LOVE it. They are happier, sleep longer. For me it is lighter, easier to carry and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the fact that the door mechanism works so effortlessly. SO HAPPY I did not return it!

  • Merlins new carrier

    By on

    Item is well made and was easy to assemble. Like the easy to operate door lock. My cat, Merlin, won't like it even though it;s very roomy. He doesn't like his older smaller one. He hates to be confined and even hates to be held. However, he will cheek you and kiss you and lie down beside you on his own terms. Merlin is a VERY independent Tom cat, but loved by everyone that meets him.

  • Solid, Reliable Kennel, Reasonably Priced

    By on

    Great kennel for transporting our bichon. Easy to put together, light enough for a 5'2" woman to carry even with the dog inside! A good choice.

  • CAUTION: Actual, usable width less than listed

    By on

    Ordered afternoon Thursday...arrived noontime on Sat. Excellent. Crate was easily put together and seems sturdy. However, while the width of the large (50-70 lb) model is listed as 25 inches that obviously pertains to the width at its widest point including the protruding lip around the unit where the top and bottom are joined together.The actual width of the floor is at best 19 inches. I'm now wondering if I should of bought another PetMate model that comes in an extra large size.

  • Awesome carrier for a small dog or large cat

    By on

    We ordered this carrier for our ragamuffin . He out grew his original crate. He is a big boy at 23 lbs. The carrier assembled easy. I sat it on the living room floor and he and one of his sisters immediately checked it out. She was even laying in it for awhile. He has enough room to turn around so he will definitely be more comfortable.

    It's a great size, it's too big for her right now that she is a puppy but hopefully she won't outgrow it. It's very sturdy and easy to clean for all the puppy accidents we are having during crate training but overall a great item.

    This kennel was super easy to put together! My dog loves it. My only complaint would be that the plastic gets stained very easily. My dog often has dirty/muddy feet when he goes out in the morning. When he returns to his crate he moves his bedding around and ends up getting the bottom of the crate all muddy. It's been really hard to get that clean, it's actually kind of stained now. It's not a big issue but the plastic must be very porous.
