Quick-Latch 2-Way door design opens left or right, and stays closed with safeguard door bars at top and bottom.
Although, we like this kennel, I think it is WAY overpriced for the quality. Also, it was NOT easy to assemble. It did not slide on easily, nor did the holes for the screws line up properly. It took us 30 minutes to get the holes readjusted to line up.
That being said, the kennel is easy to clean, lightweight, and I like that the door opens from both directions.
The sizes reflect outside materials, not internal space

I was so disappointed that this was supposedly 5” longer and wider than the current crate we own. The online description should be more clear on articulating (or make it easy to find if there) that the dimensions are for the outside materials of the crate, not for your mat or dog. This is a waste and my husband got rid of the shipping materials so too late to send back.
Not the sturdiest

I'm not loving this kennel. While convenient due to the size, I don't think it closes very easily and frankly, I think it's a bit cheap. I won't be purchasing this product again.
Pros and Cons
on Sep 1, 2018
We tried 2 kennel sizes from a local big box pet store and the 2nd kennel fit our miniature schnauzer puppy just fine. Based on those dimensions, we ordered this kennel due to the easier to operate door latches. We also wanted the additional ventilation holes in the base to keep our dog comfortable next to the A/C and heating floor vent. Unfortunately, even thought the dimensions are identical to the big box store, the interior is a bit smaller, which may become an issue when he reaches his mature size. We really appreciate Chewy's liberal return policy for kennels based on the other reviews, so we will keep it while he grows and contact Chewy if it doesn't work for us later.
beware, bare minimum kennel
on Sep 11, 2018
I have had a lot of dogs and a lot of kennels and didn't even notice when I bought this that it has no handle on top. And the floor of the kennel has four large circle indents in the corners, not flat for the dog.The screws absolutely do not fit in the holes so I may just try to keep the top fastened to the bottom with plastic ties. The door is cumbersome since you have to line up the bottom and top metal thingies to get it to line up to shut or open. Not happy. Worst kennel I've ever owned.
Easy to assemble, but needs a custom crate pad
on Aug 14, 2018
Despite it’s easy assembly, I only gave it 3 stars because I found it very difficult to find a cushion pad to fit this crate. Why doesn’t Petmate make a cushion specifically to fit this crate? I took the inside measurements, then went to two different pet stores, brought home 4 different crate pads and none of them fit. This is not a ‘standard’ sized crate unfortunately. I only found one that kind of fits at a Homegoods store, and it’s not the best pad. Also, this crate really curves in at the bottom so it just doesn’t feel as roomy as it should be. We lost our old crate in a house fire, then found this online with measurements very close to the old crate. But with the curved in sides, my dogDespite it’s easy assembly, I only gave it 3 stars because I found it very difficult to find a cushion pad to fit this crate.

I wanted to purchase a second kennel so I had one upstairs as well as downstairs for one of my dogs who had outgrown a smaller one. I searched at a retail store and could not find it which was very aggravating. I decided to give Chewy a try. They had it and it was delivered to me within two days. It couldn't have been easier and was exactly what I was looking for.
Only crate I'll buy!
on Sep 12, 2018
I just purchased my 5th and 6th of this exact crate. I have 4 of the 30-50# size that I've had for several years and now have 2 a size larger. These are sturdy, look good, secure doors and easy to clean the inside with potty training dogs. Worth paying a bit more for the Compass style crate in my opinion.
It works - sort of
on Jul 4, 2018
The size is right. Bought this for the twist knob door openers. The other door opener type (squeeze) isn't easy if you have bad arthritis. This works much better. The reason for the low rating is the construction. Assembly is straight forward but lining up the tabs and slots takes a little jockeying and finagling. The plastic construction seems a little flimsy and allows the kennel to flex. Most of the time I have to wiggle the structure a little to get the door to close. The door seems a little large (fraction of an inch) for the opening.
Petmate Compass Carrier
on Sep 16, 2018
I ordered 2 of these carriers to transport our cats. They were sturdy and our cats had room in them to stretch out. These are durable and I felt our cats were very secure.
