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.

This kennel doesn't come with a divider.

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.

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.

Door sucks

Definitely not secured. Dog just pushed the door and broke it. Not sure how it was tested.

Poncho Pad

Upgrade our older rescue! He needed an upgrade kennel for transport. Fits well in the back of my Jeep!

Good crate

Our pup is safe and (relatively) happy in it when we need to put her there. It is sturdy and very useable. I recommend it for training a large breed pup.

Safe& Secure, easy to assemble & take apart

I am very happy with this crate. In my last wire crate, my crazy pup was able to bend and escape, so I needed something much sturdier. This one is nothing crazy special but seems to be very secure and my pup is happy in it; she tries to eat her way out of it and luckily for me she has been unsuccessful! Bolts unscrew and screw back easily to take apart since it is too big to fit into most cars, definitely won't fit in a sedan so keep that in mind if you plan to travel. Overall have been very happy so far!

Poor quality

I’m not sure if we just had bad luck but our dog gets crated 1 day a week (the day our house cleaner comes) and he’s able to get out of this crate every week due to the door springs just popping off. I know we put it together properly…either it’s bad quality if we got a lemon, either way it’s disappointing to have an unusable crate after a couple months.

Broken upon receipt

We bought this crate and noticed when we unpacked it that it was broken. This kennel is in our camper. I contacted Chewy and told them about it and sent pictures.... asking if they could send us a new top for it. They said I would have to pack it up and send it back... and then they would send a new one. So... now I have to drag this kennel back home from the camper, pack it back up and be without something to put a 9-week old puppy in until the new one is received and taken back up to the camper. This is the reason I bought it BEFORE we got the pup so we would have something to put him in. My boyfriend is not happy at all... told me we could have gone to a store and had one without all this inconvenience.

Secure crate

Excellent crate for dogs with seperation anxiety. Keeps her safe & secure. She is calmer in this crate, over the other that I had been using.

good crate but poor quality control

The crate itself is legit, strong and well built. I have an adult american bully and works well for my pup. However, I am unhappy with the condition of the crate I received. The crate comes stacked into 2 large parts (top and bottom) and once I removed the stacked parts to put the crate together, I found 3 long human hair (not mine). Also the barcode sticker that was on the crate has been removed by someone because whoever removed it (or got this crate before me) didn't remove it right so a part of the sticker is on one part of the crate, and the other part of the sticker was on a different part of the crate. Lastly, it doesn't look new at all. It has random scratches and black markings on the crate. I know Chewy doesn't send out returned/used items, but all the things I found on the crate is causing me to believe that it was used. I chatted with Jessica B and she offered to have the crate replaced (after I send the one I got back) but since the new crate won't be available until 3/1 I decided to keep the crate (need it for travel reasons asap). She did kindly refund me $30 for the situation. I would have returned this crate but as all of you know who are trying to buy an airline approved crate, it is sold out everywhere! I am happy with the crate but it was a real bummer to see the crate looking used. Now I will think twice before purchasing something big on chewy.
