Rated 2 out of 5 by Rescue The crate itself is fine, but the packing is terrible.
The crate itself is fine, albeit not easy to assemble. But it was inadequately packed and arrived with just about every bit bent. To assemble it, we had to spend frustrating time with pliers getting it back to shape, and of course the metal is now weakened and the crate does fit together properly. As it is housing a gentle crate-trained dog who does not try to escape, that is not a big deal. The manufacturer is at fault, but so is Chewy for not packing the box in their own protective shipping material. That said, this is the only crate that works for giant breeds that we have tried. There is now another brand on Chewy, but we don't know whether it is the same gauge wire. If it is, we would recommend trying it -- maybe it is better packed. Also note the crate pans tend to split because the wires on the bottom are very widely spaced, and they are expensive to replace.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RobertsFamily Holds him but not well made
We purchased this for our 95 pound 6 month old Great Dane/Saint Bernard mix. It holds him well, as nothing else we have tried has been any match for him.
The pros is the size and his inability to escape from it.
The cons are that it is not made as well as I had hoped. Many of the pieces were tangled together and bent upon its arrival. The top of the kennel bows down in the front from the door panel being shorter than the rest of them. The pieces do not match together perfectly and the plastic pan is quite a bit smaller than the wire kennel. We have only been using the kennel for a little over a week and the paint is already coming off on the moving parts.
I didn't realize that this kennel comes in pieces. I almost didn't have the room to put it together, but I made it work. It almost feels like putting together an outside dog run.
We still recommend this kennel but I wouldn't pay full price for it.

Love this cage. Bent a little bit when trying to set it up but was easily put together! Very roomy for my Great Dane mastiff puppy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jnzdogs Nice crate - just have a little patience
We have had many crates over the years and this is a good one. The assembly needs a little patience, space to maneuver and more than one person. Once together, this is a solid crate. I would not recommend it for a highly aggressive dog - it's firm, but I would not trust it to contain a 90+ lb dog who would be fighting to get out. For containment, separation, daily crating, it is great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by delo cage does the job
I ordered this cage for our new puppy. The cage came in a large flat cardboard box and was extremely heavy. When we went to put the cage together, the side door latch was not attached/missing. We found the part, but were not able to reattach onto the door. So, we are not able to use the door. The black plastic tray is also cracked in the corner. Not a huge crack and is still useable. I would say that both of these issues are due to poor packaging. There was no protection other than an outside cardboard box to protect the contents. This cage is very heavy when put in a cardboard box and I'm sure got flipped around and moved during shipping. In my opinion both of these pieces should be replaced. I have not yet contacted the Chewy company but plan on doing so.

by DogMamma Very nice and huge crate, very heavy weight
This is a very heavy weight crate and it is just what we needed. We needed one that our Golden could fit into and turn around in while wearing a huge cone to keep him from licking his paw (he has a lick granuloma and believe me I wouldn't wish one of those on anyone, once they start it is so hard to get them to stop!!). This fits the bill and while it's not collapsible like all of our other crates (which are smaller) I really don't know how they could make this one collapsible because of it's size and heaviness. I climbed into it with our Golden and Border Collie mix 85 and 65 pound dogs and still had room (course I had to bend over). So if you have two dogs that like to be together in the same crate this would work for that too. Chewy did amazing on the shipping. I ordered it on a Thursday night and it was delivered on Saturday, I was amazed! I didn't think it would come till Monday but there it was. Thank you Chewy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigDog2016 The online video to set up the crate was very helpful!
We have a growing Newfoundland pup, and this kennel will be great all the way to his adult size. He has enough room to stand up, turn around with space to spare so that he is not cramped at all. Best thing is that he likes being in his new home.
