Rated 3 out of 5 by Itchydog Airline shipping crate
I bought this crate to ship a kitten via airline cargo. It is a sturdy crate with good ventilation. It was easy to put together. I did have two problems. It did not have the cups needed for air travel (empty cups that attach to the wire door). It also did not have the hole drilled into the door area to secure the door with zip ties. The instructions show the extra hole for air travel security, but is was missing.
I would purchase this again, but be aware you will need to drill holes and buy cups if using for air cargo.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AlanK Size okay, doors faulty.
I should have heeded warnings of others. Perhaps for onetime use, you could tolerate the doors, but for daily use, the latch/prong mechanism will never line up properly. It takes a frustratingly long time to fiddle with the doors to get the door latched. I can see giving up on these much sooner than I would like. Disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennifer Excellent Quality!
Super durable and well constructed. Perfect size for my Pembroke Welsh Corgi. The grate in the front is metal not plastic which is great. And as always with Chewy, we received it in one day. It's easier than going to the store and shopping for it, love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Catzcanhazcheezburgers Great, durable carrier. Two minor drawbacks.
Wife and I recently moved overseas and had to check one of our cats on the international flight. The carrier is very durable and shows little signs of wear, however there are two small drawbacks (easily remedied). On international flights you are required to have the carrier top and bottom connected with solidmetal bolts ($9 +shipping, or find them at your local hardware store), as opposed to the stock half plastic/half metal ones, and you are also required to have the carrier door sealed with zip ties/cable ties (not included, $5+shipping, or find them at your local hardware store). Assuming you are not going overseas, you don't need to worry about those additional costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Camcrest Easy to open and close door, the latch is easy.
I have purchased 2 crates thinking they might be the right size, but one is too small and this one is too big. I need one in between.
It is too expensive to ship back for an exchange, so I just won't take chances on buying crates anymore which need to be shipped.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DogShowLady Good purchase
Correct size, stacks with my other crates. Only wish it were heavier plastic, & would never pick up with the handle with a dog inside as handle could break. But that goes for any crate with an animal over 8 lbs inside.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chartreux Not as visible as I would like
As much as I dislike the linen white crate, it is the safest color for shipping. Visibility is KEY in these huge airports and on tarmacks.... we ship coast to coast and many of our shipments arrive at dusk or at night during the fall, winter & spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BUPPYY pet carrier
The first petmate pet carrier I ordered turned out to be too small for my Dacshund and Chewy gave me full credit and let me order this one which is just perfect for my dog. I love everything about it, Easy to put together and the quick shipping I always receive from Chewy. The cost of it was also reasonable. Very Happy With Everything I Get From Chewy.Com.
