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.

Answer by ChewyNov 09, 2018
According to reviews, pet parents have reported that they flipped the doors upside down to be able to open it in the other direction.

Can replacement doors be ordered? I have a Petmate Ultra Vari kennel 36 inch but the lock on the door which never aligned well is now broken.
Answer by ChewyJan 30, 2019
At this time, replacement parts for this crate are not available for purchase.

Does the Petmake Ultra Vari Kennel package include some kind of connectors for the seatbelts to secure the kennel in the car's back seat?
Answer by ChewyFeb 27, 2019
This kennel offers convenient tie-down strap holes allow you to zip-tie the kennel together for added security during airline travel, however it does not have connectors specifically to secure this with a seat belt.

Wonderful for traveling with my kitten

I go for skin cancer surgery in the near future and need to take my new kitten along. This size will fit his litter box, bed, and food dishes, and allow him room to move around during the 3 hour trip. It will be used in the pet friendly hotel if surgery lasts long and we need to stay overnight. The kennel is very sturdy with extra slots to put zip ties in if you have to fly in a plane with your pet.

Can I get a new top?

Shipped promptly, easy to assemble. Probably not a bad product for most dogs. Not heavy duty enough for us though. My dog runs in the crate like he's happy to go in but on his third time in the crate this happened:

Best crate

Our puppy chewed his way out of 2 crates before we bought this one. Not getting out now!
