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.

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.

Unimpressed with the door

I had to replace my dog's crate, typed in the name of the previous crate I had been using and this one popped into the window. The door can be hung to open from the left or from the right. The door is opened by squeezing two metal tabs that compress springs. Two metal bars fit into holes at the top and bottom of the door opening. The casing for the front of the lock is plastic, easily removable even from inside the crate and my dog was able to knock it off, and the door opened because nothing was now holding the metal bar/spring mechanism in place. Wyatt is an escape artist who as a puppy, was able to open his first crate with his nose. The crate I replaced was Wyatt proof. I'm hoping Gorilla glue and some packing tape will keep the cover on the lock and the dog in the crate. For how expensive this crate is, the manufacturer needs to do a redesign of that lock, because it is definitely not worth the price.

Sloppy Workmanship

I've had several Petmate kennels before and was extremely pleased. I got this kennel the other day and was disappointed in the quality. Holes were not drilled in the upper lid by the gate. There should be 3 holes starting by the gate to the middle of the of the right side. The bottom section has the holes drilled. I am keeping the kennel since my dog is well behaved in the crate and will only be used in our home.

Exactly as described

Exactly as described. Easy to assemble. You’ll be shocked at how large of a box it comes in but it was well protected and did not crack.

Awesome product and amazing service.

This product was very nice, good quality. It was a little too short for my Havanese/Coton 11lb. puppers.

Quality at good price

Just the right size for my Australian Kelpie. Plenty of air holes for circulation and not overly heavy. Using in the house and for travel.

Good product but not perfect.

Crate was easy to assemble and works wonderfully for our dog. There are a few complaints. The door does not shut easily and takes a little more work to make it close correctly. There is also a broken piece in the lower right hand corner. It seems to have broken off at some point. Not large enough to effect our dog, but still disappointing. The crate is still useable just a little frustrating the few flaws.
