We really like this wood crate. The wood is pretty and the crate is made well! Looks very nice in our family room!
We do like this crate overall, having upgraded from an all-metal model It took over an hour to assemble, but that was with one person-- I expect it would be easier with 2 (as the instructions recommend). Some of the pieces are quite heavy. The reason for knocking off 1 star is the front latch. The design itself is not ideal, plus the pre-drilled holes have it slightly misaligned. The result is that it is quite difficult to lock and unlock, and our kids, who help with the dogs, are unable to operate it.
These are beautiful, but by the time they were in use for 6 months, they were held together with loc-tite and hope. I have two. The latch hardware failed on both. The screws that hold the door hinges all stripped. I’m constantly supergluing them back together. My dogs weigh between 3 and 12 pounds, so it’s not as though we’re hard on them. For the first time ever, I didn’t get a response from Chewy when I emailed with the issues. At $250 a piece, they are absolutely not worth it.
