Reasonably priced kennel with handle and reversible door is good value, good quality and was easy for this senior female to assemble. My only issue is that the squeeze latch is large and is requires the maximum my hand can stretch. If someone has small hands or limited hand strength the squeeze latch could be difficult. If the door had a smaller squeeze latch it would definitely get 5 staros.
works well in the car

I use this crate to confine my little pit bull Molly when
riding in the car. It functions well for that purpose. It
was very easy to assemble, and the price was good.
bottom half not very sturdy or stable
on Feb 3, 2019
Got mine the other day, 15-25lbs size, because our pup is beginning to outgrow her awesome petmate crate.
The plastic is very soft and seems not sturdy at all, which makes the clipping mechanism difficult and not really trustworthy as it easily unclips because of how much the bottom half bends away. We will keep it as car crate, but i don’t trust actually carrying our 17lbs dog in it.
Durable and Right Size

The 42” fit our Husky Shepherd mix just right. We have seven dogs and they all have this brand of crate. They are excellent quality.

This crate is very flimsy. Some of the latches were missing and the ones that were there, had nothing to grip as the plastic was broken and missing. The few that could actually catch would not hold when I picked it up. Could only put it together with zip ties.
Great for travel

This crate is just what I was looking for. It is a great crate for the price. It came packaged well and in good time. Also it was very easy to put together.
Alternative feral-cat house

I’m using this as a feral cat cave in my outside workbench! I placed a cushy pad inside & put it under a tarp on the lower shelf ( 9” above the ground). It stays dry & somewhat cozy! It’s a great size & the cats are loving it! Thanks
Great for my Doxie

My 9lb mini doxie fit perfectly! Our soft sided crate didnt work out for her so I tried this one. Chewy customer service is amazing and traded it out for me. I will always shop with them from now on!
Nice Quality Kennel!

I bought this kennel (the XL size) about 10 months ago for my 90-ish lb adult male german shepherd. So far it has been an excellent kennel! It fits him great. Very easy to put together. The plastic is very sturdy feeling, even when we drag it outside for hosing it out for cleaning. It is very easy to clean, whether it be by hosing down outside, or by just wiping it clean in the house. It is a little tiresome to take it all apart if you need to do that for cleaning, but if you don’t mind climbing in the kennel a bit so you don’t have to take it apart it’s still easy. The only downfall I had with the kennel is my shepherd sometimes doesn’t like to stay put and he figured out how to bust throughI bought this kennel (the XL size) about 10 months ago for my 90-ish lb adult male german shepherd.

The only downfall I had with the kennel is my shepherd sometimes doesn’t like to stay put and he figured out how to bust through the door, he broke 2 doors beyond repair (we ordered replacements) before I finally got smart and purchased a “vaulted” kennel door for him, which is what you see in the pictures. Since putting that on the kennel the escapes stopped and he has been unable to break it, fingers crossed that my literal revolving door (of doors!) is finally over! He did break a little of the plastic at the bottom of the kennel in his escapes but it doesn’t affect the use of the kennel at all and it shouldn't become a problem in the future either. Overall I would most definitely buy this kennel again, my only reason for 4 stars would be that I did end up having to buy 3 extra doors because my Houdini dog rendered so many broken and useless, and I have a collection of broken kennel doors in my backyard now. Maybe it’s a design flaw in the kennels, maybe it’s my powerhouse dogs, like I said I would still buy the kennel again, it’s just one star short of perfect for me. Sorry it’s kind of dirty looking in the pictures we haven’t done our monthly cleaning yet!… more
