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.

Better than expected

I was hesitant to buy the small carrier because the picture and description show that the carrier has clips. Thankfully it now comes with bolts and nuts all around like what is pictured on the Petmate website. The correct interior measurements are 21.5 x 15 x 13.5, so ignore the response in the Q&A section. There isn’t a compartment on the top either like what is mentioned in the description. Chewy needs to update the model on their website.

Vari dog Kennel

came quickly,, suggest you offer a model fitted out for airline transport of birds.. Delta has restrictions that require me to completely dismantle the carrier, install 1/2" wire on the inside openings, bolt (with nuts) all the clamshell closures, install a perch and a food bowl,,,

Not thrilled

Ordered on 6/17 and not even 2 months later latch no longer works. Wasn’t thrilled about its durability, plastic is kind of on the thin side so I wouldn’t recommend for flights. I’ve only used it in the car for transport (1x a day/5 day week) and it’s been stationary with strap downs. For the last week I’ve been only able to use top side of latch but now it’s not effective and my dog got out while I was driving. Not a happy camper with this crate.

Too large and more

First, Chewy shows amazing integrity with prompt customer service responses and resolutions no matter what the problem. The intermediate was too large for our needs and Chewy was immediately responsive with a refund and suggestion that we donate to a local dog rescue, no questions asked. Not Chewy's fault, but FYI, the box arrived trashed. Yes, the door rattles and assembly isn't snug. I'd be worried about it holding during airline travel.

Good product for a good price

A basic crate that is easy to put together and use. It’s not the fanciest option out there but if you need a small container for your pet that is sturdy, this is the one. Chewy has this for a great price.

Pet carriers are sturdy

We bought 2 of these for our adult cats. They are plenty big enough. We needed to crate our cats overnight a couple nights for their safety. They were comfortable and safe. They are sturdy and easy to handle.

Not what is pictured

The online image was not what I got. When I was referred to the supplier, they told me they no longer made that Vari kennel. Also my kennel didn't come with enough bolts to secure the kennel. Very disappointed.

My 18 month old puppy travels more comfortably in this crate. No more motion sickness.
