    Measure AND weigh your dog for correct crate size.

    First off, this isn't the best quality crate for airline travel, but as long as you don't have a crazy chewer, than it should work just fine. We used it to fly our pointer from coast to coast and she did fine. I ordered another one for our hound rescue, but unfortunately, even though his weight fell First off, this isn't the best quality crate for airline travel, but as long as you don't have a crazy chewer, than it should work just fine. We used it to fly our pointer from coast to coast and she did fine. I ordered another one for our hound rescue, but unfortunately, even though his weight fell within the crate specs, he is too tall for the large size. Chewy was, once again, absolutely fantastic to work with on the return. I cannot recommend Chewy enough to anyone wondering if they should try them. YOU WILL LOVE THIS COMPANY. The rep that helped me with the return was wonderful. Thank you, Janny S.! … more

    Bumpy Bottom

    By Mattie on Jun 24, 2017

    The kennel would have worked but the channel on the bottom is more like a moat and there are a couple other bumps in the middle of surface that my puppy would chew on. The bottom of the crate would be ok with a mat, unfortunately my puppy would chew that too. Customer service at Chewy is amazing.

  • Feels a little flimsy but will do for my purposes

    By on

    I just needed an inexpensive carrier to take my boy to the vet once or twice a year so this carrier is fine for that but it's pretty thin plastic and I'm not sure if I would recommend it for more than that - no long distance travel for instance.

  • Too small for 7-8 lb dog

    By on

    Maybe i measured incorrectly. I need a kennel for my now 5 lb puppy to mature to around 7-8 lbs. This is way too small. I'll donate it to local shelter for a kitten and order next size up. Quality is very good and I like that it's a light color.

  • Not like they used to be

    By on

    I have bought these kennels in the past and are still using them so I was surprised at how thin the plastic is now. They in turn are not very sturdy.
