About Petmate Kennels

A Comfy Place for Rest

Give your canine companion an inviting place to sleep and relax with Petmate’s plastic kennels. Each kennel is built with comfort in mind, with rounded edges and a smooth interior designed to help your dog doze as comfortably as you do. Your furry family member deserves the best and nothing less.

A Cozy Canine Safe Space

Dogs have an instinctive desire to be snug and comfortable in a semi-enclosed space of their own. Petmate kennels satisfy that natural denning instinct, giving your pup a place that feels both safe and secure where he can go to relax when he’s stressed, out of his comfort zone or just ready for a restorative snooze.

Secure What Matters

Petmate kennels are built for strength and safety, with durable construction designed to keep your pup in the kennel and out of harm’s way. Whether you’re traveling with your dog somewhere and need to secure him or crating to stop destructive behaviors while you’re gone, you can rely on Petmate to provide safety and peace of mind.

For Pups Big and Small

Whether your dog is pint-sized or extra-large, Petmate has a kennel that’s the perfect size and shape for your best friend. Made with size-specific details like heavy-duty materials for larger kennels and nice touches like top access on some smaller models, you’ll find that each kennel was designed with your pup’s unique needs in mind.

Made Right

Petmate kennels are engineered to stand up to rust, bad weather and rough handling to give you many years of trustworthy use. From their durable plastic construction to the hard-as-nails hardware that keeps them together, these kennels will provide a safe and cozy environment for your pup through thick and thin.

Air and Road Trip Approved

These kennels were built with safety in mind and are made to be fully compliant with air and highway travel requirements. That means you can take your furry friend with you anywhere you need to go! Your best friend will love his comfy home away from home on all your journeys, and you’ll love knowing he’s in a safe and secure place.

About Petmate

Petmate started out making kennels back in 1959 and they haven’t stopped since. They now offer a vast line of different products for all sorts of pets and provide trusted solutions for pet parents everywhere. They care about the environment, too, employing eco-friendly manufacturing techniques at their Edison Green Award-winning facility and embracing new technologies to further reduce impacts.

Can this crate be secured in a car with a seat belt?
Answer by ChewyAug 10, 2018
At this time the manufacturer does not produce accessories to secure the kennel in a car.

My large cat is strong and has pushed his way through carrier zippers. How secure is the top panel? How is it fastened? Thank you.
Answer by ChewyMay 12, 2019
The top of this kennel is securely locked with spring-loaded latches. Steel wire and plastic construction combine to create a sturdy carrier.

What are the interior dimensions? I'm trying to see if my carrier mat/pad will fit properly before I buy a new one.
Answer by ChewySep 26, 2020
The Medium crate has interior dimensions of 21 inches long x 14.5 inches wide x 13.5 inches high.

Is assembly required?
Answer by ChewySep 16, 2018
This kennel does require some assembly.

A better carrier

My partner bought three of these for his cats. I was impressed with the ease of loading a prickly cat through the top, when I took one to the vet. It was sturdier than my carriers. I haven't assembled mine yet, but my partner said it was easy, only took a few minutes. If the current stray moves in, I'll be getting another. We chose the medium to give more space gor cats to move around on a long trip. The only quibble I had is that the box is tapered so the floor and roof are smaller than the "waist". I prefer a more square shape to get maximum floor space for the space it takes up in the car.

Front door is a little difficult to open and close

I like this kennel, but the front door is difficult to open and close. It seems to stick and I need to wiggle it a little bit to get it closed and opened, which makes it difficult with the water dish on the front and spilling it. Otherwise, I love the top door to get our puppy out.

Top door doesn’t stay open

I purchased this carrier specifically because it had a top load feature. Unfortunately, the top door does not stay open. The door only flips open and falls shut when you let go of it making it difficult to manage with one person if your cat is not a fan of being in a carrier. Unfortunately I didn’t try it out before our first vet appointment. I ended up having to reschedule. The carrier is fine if you have a second person or you don’t need the top load feature. Unfortunately it doesn’t work for us. I’m going to have to figure out what to do with it and how to get Maggie cat to the vet

Faulty Product

I really should have returned this, but I McGuyvered it with duct tape. The holes in the top/bottom don't match with the side door metal rods. If the bottom rods are in the holes, the top rods CANNOT match up with the top holes. Also, because there is a top door, and because the carrying handle is only attached to that door, and because the top door is only held in place by hinges on one side and 2 metal rods going through 2 holes in the plastic, I worry about putting any weight at all in this carrier. In fact, I haven't used it yet, even though I duct taped the heck out of it. I have a few very light cats and I'll see how I feel about carrying them in it. Really, I should have returned it. I would NOT recommend buying this product.

Works Well

We have a 10 pound cat, so we're not beating it up or anything, but it's worked great for us. We have to give our cat who has kidney failure fluids at home, so he can't move too much when we're giving them to him. We have one person in the front distracting him (and his claws and teeth lol) while the other uses the top bit to do the fluids. Works way better than our previous methods! In general, it does seem sturdy and well put together outside of our specific use.

Awesome cat carrier!

Bought this as a second carrier because my two furballs are grown now and it's too hard to get them into one carrier. This carrier is exactly like my first one. Love the fact that you can open the carrier from the top and the front. My vet always remarks how much he likes this kind of carrier.

3rd one for us

I already have two of these. We just rescued an elderly Persian girl, so I needed a third. They are the purrfect size for a small cat. If you have a larger cat like a Maine Coon, I would get the next size up. Otherwise, these work purrfect for us.

Love top load carriers

So much easier to load a cat thru the large top opening rather than the small door as they do not have much of a chance to put the "brakes" on.

Durable, functional, cute. Nice crate for my small dog. Just wish door would stay open or had a hinge to keep it open as a safe space for my pup.

Two door top load dog & cat kennel.

This is a quality dog kennel. I believe it will last a long time. We have a small dog and it is a perfect size to grow with her. Extremely pleased with my purchase,
