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.

I have 3 toy poodles is this big enough to put all 3 in together, looking for something in case of severe weather for easy travel
Answer by ChewyMay 29, 2018
For safety reasons, we do not recommend carrying more than 1 pet within a single carrier.

What size do you need for a regular sized domestic house cat?
Answer by ChewyDec 04, 2019
The best way to select the perfect kennel size for your pet is to measure them from the top of their head to the floor, then from the tip of their nose to the base of the tail. The height of the kennel should be 3-4 inches taller and longer than your pet so there's ample space to fully stand up, easily turn around and comfortably lie all the way down. The 19-inch kennel measures 19 x 12.3 x 10.8 inches and can hold up to 10 pounds of weight, the 24-inch kennel measures 24.1 x 16.7 x 14.5 inches and can hold up to 20 pounds of weight.

Does the 19" kennel use screws or clamps to fasten top and bottom halves?
Answer by ChewyAug 06, 2023
The two halves should be secured together with the seven snap latches on the top half. It is advisable to check the latches periodically to ensure they remain secure. For airline travel, use of wing nuts and bolts is required.
