I purchased the large crate for my Catahoula mix puppy. I have used it for about the last 6 months and it's a great crate that will last for many years. The included divider is a great feature that I used as my puppy grew so that I could purchase the size he would need as an adult. I took 1 star off because it was hard to put together. The slide and lock feature to put the crate together wasn't my favorite. It took my mom, brother, and myself an hour to get it put together as the holes didn't want to line up correctly. Other then that small flaw, I highly recommend!
Yes! Yes! Yes!

I have a 70+ pound 8 month old Mastador puppy. I initially purchased a large wire crate, which he mastered escaping. Then he would proceed to destroy my home. I tried everything including training to no avail. His anxiety was just too much (he is a rescue no telling what hes endured). So, we quit leaving him. Talk about miserable bondage. Enter kennel. This kennel has given him a place he feels safe. Its given me the security to leave him home alone again! Its large and well built with thick plastic. BUT....he hasnt even chewed on it (like everything else in my home) he just goes in and lays down now like its his sanctuary away from my kids. Thankful for this!!!
Great Large Dog Crate
on Dec 13, 2018
This crate/kennel is plenty large for our 60 pound dog and will be adequate for sleeping or travel when she grows to an expected 100 pounds. It is sturdy, but was easy to put together. We got a great price from Chewy at about 60% off standard retail price. (Even though other stores also discount it, their price was significantly lower.) It also shipped for free and arrived in about a week.
best kennel for a large dog

My son had bought this kennel a few years ago for his large 65 lb dog. The do had never been in a kennel before- the dog loves it and goes in by himself when ever he wants quit time. I bought this kennel to have at my house for when the dog comes for a visit- he feels at home- just what I needed for him
Great inexpensive crates!

I wouldn't use a crate with bottom pan ventilation holes to transport my dogs in a car, much less an aircraft. They're not stable enough for that. I don't think Petmate intended these crates for that. But as a reasonably priced kennel for a crate-trained dog or a puppy (who doesn't have separation anxiety), these are perfect. The two-way swinging door is a bonus. It makes the crate that much more flexible, when I want to move the crate to another room, which I inevitably want to do eventually.
For people who are having difficulties putting this together, there's a trick to remedy that: set the gate aside, start sliding the crate together, then tip it onto the front opening so that the I wouldn't use a crate with bottom pan ventilation holes to transport my dogs in a car, much less an aircraft.

For people who are having difficulties putting this together, there's a trick to remedy that: set the gate aside, start sliding the crate together, then tip it onto the front opening so that the opening is on the floor (or table for little crates) so you can easily see where the crate isn't lining up.
Then wiggle the plastic around a bit until everything slides/squeezes into place. Finally, snap the back into place.
I bought four extra large crates and had all of them put together by myself within about 20-30 minutes. Granted, I have years of experience putting all types of crates together. These were a back-up set so I could safely kennel the dogs in our cool basement when it was hot outside (and hot in the rest of the house). My dogs really seem to like the extra ventilation. They also socialized through the extra holes, so if you have dogs that don't get along well, I'd choose something with smaller holes and wire windows, like the Sky Kennel.
But the whole point is that plastic crates should fit together snug so that they're stable and secure. If you want something that is easily collapsible, a wire crate is a good option. If you still need stability, especially for travel, a VariKennel Ultra can be taken apart easily).
Every crate I own is a Petmate. They make a lot of varieties depending on need and price range. I really like this Navigator Kennel because it's inexpensive but does the job.… more

This kennel is great! It comes in 3 parts and it's easy enough to put together. You need a bit of strength to do it, but it's very straightforward. The door gets a little stuck from time to time.
Purchased for a german shepherd
on Oct 22, 2018
Received in a extra large shipping box, arrived missing one of the back locks. It takes two people to line up the edges due to the flexibility of the plastic. I also don't like the top dips in and shortens the inside height. I kept the crate, I needed it ASAP and local stores were out of XXL crates. I wouldn't buy again.

Fairly easy to assemble except two bolt holes were slightly off. Appears sturdy and our cat took to it readily. We leave the door open and he likes to nap in it.

I bought this for my miniature schnauzer. His original one was a just a tad small for him, so I didn't want to go huge on the next one. This one was only 4 inches larger all around and it is perfect! Easy to put together too!!
Travel crete worked great

Received my petmate in time for trip to Hocking Hills . Assembled easy and fit in car. After the first few time entering the petmate was easy. Nice to have door working from both sides. Unit can be cleaned up very fast. Lots of opening so that the pet can see out. Price was good, delivery time was fast.
