I have a 90-lb, 5 year old GSD and he has destroyed 2 wire kennels and broken teeth to get out of them. He is absolutely PERFECT in this kennel, it certainly helps him feel more secure. Assembly is easy and the kennel is well-made. Definitely worth the investment, especially if you have a destructive/anxious dog.
I think it's a strong cage for an indoor only situation. I wouldn't expose it to weather or water. It loses a star because I don't like the tray/base design or the hasps. I might have ordered the wrong size but it's too large to return. FedEx delivered it to my door, but I feel terrible because it weighs 100 lb. It's easy to assemble if you use masking tape to hold the sides up while you line up the top and insert the bolts
This crate is heavy and heavy duty. If your dog can destroy everything, like a hurricane coming through the Atlantic, this is the crate for you. This is indestructible and heavy. You are not going to move it very easily unless you install the wheels. This giant dog home won't be thrown in the back of your SUV, but maybe a truck if your husband is a body builder. It does not collapse and fold away, so you are stuck with it being a part of your house (we have embraced it). You will need a crate pad otherwise your dog could be very uncomfortable. An indestructible crate pad, if your dog is anything like mine. Also, if you have smaller dogs, they enjoy the bottom trap door to keep the big dog out (sometimes needed during dinner time). Don't question my dog parenting, it works for us. My little ones try to see how much food they can throw between the bottom bars so you are forced to pull out the bottom trays and clean them. I give this crate 10 stars after dealing with many other crates.
