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.

I inherited two cats and a petcrate pet taxi from my deceased brother in law. The crate is missing one front and one side clip. Is there any way to replace them? TY😺 M
Answer by smeejade442Dec 09, 2022
Contact PetMate (google PetMate to find their number) and they will send you replacements. I received replacement clips quickly and with no trouble.

What are the interior dimensions of the Large Petmate Vari dog and cat kennel?
Answer by ChewyAug 21, 2018
The interior dimensions of the Small are 17 x 14 x 14 inches, the interior dimensions of the Medium are 24 x 18.5 x 20.5 inches, the interior dimensions of the Intermediate are 28 x 20.5 x 23 inches, the interior dimensions of the Large are 32 x 23 x 26 inches.

Where can I buy replacement doors for the intermediate, large and extra large?
Answer by ChewyJul 07, 2020
Replacement parts may be purchased through the manufacturer directly.

Could you please let me know if 1) Medium has a top handle and if 2) Medium's dimensions of 28 x 20.5 x 21.5 inches are inside or outside? My cat is 23lbs are very long. Thank you.

The Intermediate and the Large don't have carry handles and the dimensions listed are external dimensions.

Latch does not work well

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.

It is fine

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.

Perfect Hide-a-way

This dog kennel does the job perfectly. It arrived on time, was super easy to assemble and has become my dog's resting/sleeping space. The solid bottom section is a bonus for my cat who can tiptoe past the back of the crate without being seen by the dog.

Huge for a small

This thing is supposed to be small and it's HUGE. We have a small puppy and needed something to transport her in and... yeah this does the trick but sheesh.

Perfect safe space

Thus pet crate is great. I never liked the wire ones as they remind me of laboratory cages. It gives my little dog a safe space and the privacy a cage does not. Sturdy and was easy to put together. I wish it came with a pad like my soft care, but other than that I am totally satisfied.

Vari Dog Kennel is the best

I've used Vari Kennels for years. I recently purchase an additional kennel and can say that the quality of the product is still as high as ever.

Not like the picture

X small not like picture. Top and bottom are secured together using screws not hinge clips. The top does not have compartments. The plastic is simply molded to have a front and back raised section.

Wrong Item

I received a dog bed and not a crate. Was frustrating because I had to go buy one from a local store that isn't the same quality.

Do Not Buy

I bought three carriers for moving pets to new home. Went to assemble and found that bolts for all three kennels were TOO SHORT by about 1/2 inch. No way to secure the kennel top and bottom with accompanying parts. Too bad because kennel looks okay otherwise.

Large Dog Crate

The crate is just as expected and my dog loves it. I always recommend ordering anything you need for your pets from Chewy. Their customer service can't be beat. You know you can rely on them if you do find an issue or need to make a return. On top of their quick delivery.
