I was concerned with heat build up while traveling in my minivan for my German Shepherd puppy in her existing plastic crate which only has perforations on the top half of the crate. It was difficult to position the A/C vents to keep her cool. With this crate she has ventilation from all sides, no hot areas. I am extremely pleased with this crate and will order a second one for the house. To me it has the benefits of a wire crate when it comes to air circulation but the security and safety of a plastic one in case of an accident.

Before making an online purchase, I always like to read the lower ratings to see what kind of problems are putting people off. This time I found that most of the complaints were from difficulty of assembly. So I bought the kennel and had no trouble at all, even working alone. I did put the corner carriage bolts in from the bottom instead of the top as shown, because it was easier to align the holes. I admit it was a little tricky aligning the sliding parts, but one side at a time and a little nudge to hold it in place was all it took.

This is a great crate. My pit/lab mix has crazy crate anxiety and we invested in something he couldnt hurt himself busting out of if it happened. He has gotten out once, but i think the door wasnt latched right. He is 70lbs even, i got the Xlarge and im glad i did, i would have hated to see him in the large, the Xlarge was perfect for his size. Overall very happy with crate, i gave it a 4 because im not sure how my dog got out of the crate (i didnt put him in it that time)
Overall good kennel

It was quite the task to get the top and bottom parts of the kennel to line up correctly, but after several tries it fit together great. I love divider that goes inside which is why I ultimately ended up going with this kennel. I love that my puppy can grow with this kennel. I also love that you can open the door from either side without having to reconfigure anything. Overall very please with this kennel, just wish it had been a little easier to assemble.
Best plastic crate!
on Jun 5, 2018
We looked at a number of plastic crates and this one beat out every other-- even pricier models. It is super sturdy, easy to assemble. The gate mechanism is flawless and smooth- not weak or clumsy like a number of other ones we tried. The divider was a tad confusing to put in at first but once we figured it out it was easy and def comes in handy for the puppy stage! Great buy!

I purchased this when our silver lab pup only weighed 30#. Since I got the large size (36x23x26), it was a bit large, but in the past 5 weeks she's grown to 50# and the kennel is wonderful. She has plenty of room to turn around, lie, sit or stand. We use it in the car to take her for rides. For safety's sake, it's anchored down using the back seat safety belts. I love the 2 way door opening as well. Although, due to its size, it's a bit clumsy, it's still easy enough to move from the car to the house. It only weighs 18#, yet is extremely sturdy. Assembly was easy, taking my husband about 30 minutes.

I had researched MANY other crates/kennels prior to purchasing this one, and I'm extremely satisfied with my decision. The price was about 1/2 what the pet stores were asking as well, so that was a plus. I'd definitely recommend this crate/kennel to any dog owner looking for a safe place to keep their pet.… more
Pet mate Navigator Plastic kennel

Chewy replaced the entire kennel for me after my BullyPit broke out of the first one! The locking mechanism fell apart after one three hour stint home alone! I placed the divider (which is metal) as a deterrent) as a second door behind the actual door and she bent that one. I read the reviews before purchasing (this was supposed to be for Houdinis) and this is just not for a dog who is determined to get out. Chewy was wonderful and stood behind the manufacturer defect the first time however. Its cheaply made so if you have a very strong dog don't waste the money!
NOT easy to put together!
on Apr 7, 2018
The size, the holes for air flow are what I Expected! However it was not easy to put together as some reviews had sounded like it was a piece of cake! I had to ask someone else to put it together. The directions were such a tiny print that they could not be read. Now that I have it put together and my golden has used it is what I had expected. Almost sent it back but glad I didn't!
Good prices, excellent customer service.

This is a company I can stay with. I made mistakes with my recurring order and Rosie fixed it for me. Professional, personable, and patient with me.
Bert also handled a problem with the same friendly professional demeanor.
They both saved me money.
It's a cage
on Jun 11, 2018
Its roomy and simple to put together but I thought it was going to be more secure and mines didnt come with a piece in back to secure it,it just came with bolts. If you have a dog that moves around a lot I would not get this cage.
