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.

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.

Excellent carrier

I absolutely love that this carrier has 2 openings to it since most of my cats hate getting in these. The top opening works really well to put them in it when heading to the vet or such . This was my 3rd carrier in this line to buy. I also love that it has a moat around where they sit on the inside in case one urinates in it then they're not sitting in it like older carriers.

Inaccurate dimensions listed in description

The dimensions listed for the size small carrier are: 19.4" x 12.8" x 10" with a weight capacity of 10lbs. This is a little bigger than the soft sided carrier I use for my 12lb cat, so I thought it would be perfect for my new kitten to grow into. HOWEVER, that measurement includes the 1" border that surrounds the outside of the carrier, and every surface inside the carrier is rounded and tapered. Meaning, the small size is TINY, and in no universe could it hold a 10lb cat, as demonstrated by Fitz in my pictures who is exactly 10lb. The actual, internal, functional measurements of this carrier are: Length 15" x Width 8" x Height 10" (I didn't buy this for my adult cats, they were just the gracious models. The carrier was meant for a new 6 week old kitten. I could see immediately that he would outgrow it in no time).

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.

I don't worry about the top coming off of this one because it feels well made and the bolts stay tight. Mine came with two extra nuts and bolts, which was nice. Both doors open easily, and my cat tolerates the top door reasonably well.

Petmate 24" Carrier

Our car was recently totaled during a collision with a large deer. We had 7 foster kitties with us. Airbags deployed and once we got ourselves and the animals back home I noticed the damage to the carrier in direct line with the one air bag. We may have lost our car but this carrier protected our blind foster cat Early. I am grateful for such a sturdy carrier.

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.

Sturdy, durable, great for 2 rabbits

My two bunnies fit perfectly in here, each ~ 6lb. The top opening makes it very easy to take out one at a time (ex. at the vet) and the front opening is nice to let them get out without being picked up again

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
