Needed a lightweight crate for when we go to training classes. This crate is great. It took us a few practice runs to figure out the proper way to break it down. Needless to say we got it figured out. One of the features that sold me was this crate is a bit taller than the other brands. This crate is working out very well.
I love this crate. Just getting started with it in my bedroom for my bernedoodle. I have a Diggs downstairs for daytimes when I have to go out but this soft crate is just perfect in my bedroom. So light and flexible. Very easy and enjoyable for my best friend. Thank you for the quality.
I like this purchase. It is the right size for my needs and seems well designed. My dog is crate trained, so my puppy has not damaged. Although, at just 6 months, I was worried that he would break through the screen door. But he has not. There is a slight smell that has still not quite worn off after 2 weeks, but it is disappearing slowly. I intend to travel with it and like how it can fold down and be transported easily in my SUV.
This was a great purchase! Not only is this lightweight, very durable, but it is also very versatile. Set up is a breeze. I love the look of it and that it is easy to carry and easy to fold up or transport after set up. The blinds that fold up or down on the sides, front and top are designed well. Love that you can open this up as a nice cozy place for your pet to lie, or you can zip all the window to keep your pet contained. I would highly recommend this!
We had this crate 16 days before our 53 lb pup busted through the side while we were out to dinner. It was a replacement for the same brand which he busted out of while at doggie daycare. He is usually gentle with toys, furniture, etc. But he can cut through these like butter. Back to metal crates I guess.
This soft crate is very nice. It is super easy to set up and take down, it's light weight and has a nice carry bag, but also has a handle on the crate itself in case you forget or lose the bag. My only issue is (and this is on me because she was fine in a hard crate, I assumed she would be fine in a soft crate) if I don't watch her, my 3 month old puppy would tear the mesh and get out (durability is the reason for 4 stars and not 5). I would recommend this for a dog that is comfortable in a crate and does not paw at the door or try to chew their way out. This will not stand up to a determined to escape pup.
I probably should have measured it out before buying, I got the 36-in Med/Large when the medium would probably have been a little more than I needed. Looks sharp. Very easy to operate. My kids can stand it up or collapse it and work all the windows/flaps/togs. I didn't know it came with a travel bag, which is nice to have. My Shiba loves the "cave" experience and has no issues staying in quietly with the flaps down, but its definitely not for a digger or one with separation or anxiety issues, as the mesh windows are not going to stand up to any kind of force. Has some "new product" / chemical smell. Might use febreeze and leave it open for a bit when you first get it. Included pad has a zip-able shell for washing which is nice.
I like the design of this crate, however, I am preparing to return the second one in a row now, because one of the snaps won't close. When you snap it closed, it just separates and won't engage. These are the large plastic snaps that keep the crate folded closed. Once would have been a fluke, but twice in a row seems like an issue with perhaps poor quality in parts being used. I'm going to try once more, to see if I can get one with two working snaps (that's how much I like the design). If not, I'll give up and order somewhere else. I'm a bit worried about over quality at this point, as well, but time will tell.
The crate appears well made and light enough for travel and lifting. Not a crate for protection in travel but perfect for destination comfort.
Its quick to set up, and has a lot of good features, such as several flaps that can be lifted or let down as needed. I havent tried it with my larger, younger dog yet as I fear he will tear through it. It was recommended to me by friends!
