This is the second kennel we have purchased for our Parson Russell terrier,,,,we have one for the car and one for the house in case we leave him home alone,,,,we chose the same model over again after using the first one for a few weeks,,,it is easy to put together in a few minutes and well built,,,for the price,
The picture for ordering showed the top and bottom attached by snapping latches, like one I already have. However the carrier that came has bolts and plastic nuts. At first I was disappointed, but now I like the bolts better than my other carrier with the snaps. The bolts are more secure in attaching the top and bottom, just not as fast in assembly and disassembly as the snapping latches.
This would be a very nice kennel if the latch worked correctly. The first one I got was poorly packaged and I think warped during shipping, and the latch didn't line up at all so it was unusable. Chewy sent me a replacement for free (thank you) that came securely packaged, but even so on this one the latch doesn't line up correctly with the bottom hole. So I had to modify it a bit to get it to work, but it is still not great.
I really like the looks of this crate...however, the assemble left a lot to be desired. The screws were too long for the fastenings and therefor could and would not hold the two parts together snuggle. I had to get out zip ties to put it together. I am quite upset by this, as anyone would be.
Kennel flat on the floor in car. Traveled frim Florida to Maine. Door rattles. Irritating for borh pet and people. Otherwise i like the size.
Excellent crate. Arrived in a timely manner. New puppy is sleeping in it well. Hoping the knobs that hold it together are tougher than puppy teeth.
We love this kennel. We use it mostly at home, as a safe place to nap or get away for our puppy, Gracie. It is exactly what we needed for her. She is also content to stay in the kennel when we are away from home for short periods of time.
My 8 month old beagle puppy chewed a hole in the side and escaped. Only had the crate for 2 or 3 weeks.
Strong Kennel, perfect fit for my Frenchie puppy. Kennel fits on truck's back seat and seat belt keeps it steady while traveling. Easy to clean .
Was really surprised to find that it didn't look like what I thought I ordered. (I see that Chewy has since updated their photo of it. I was trying to make sure that it had interchangeable parts with my existing carrier.) Thankfully came with extra fasteners. So I was able to rehabilitate another pet carrier too. (really, chewy, you should carry/sell the fasteners - they seem to always disappear) This 24" carrier fit the 22" kennel bed insert just fine. It is the same quality as other Petmate carriers I own. I thought the pattern on top rather than the little covered cubbies, or even open cups were not particularly attractive or functional, and possibly more difficult to keep clean. Not sure why they're there like that. Other than that, perfectly fine and functional carrier.
