This is a very nice carrier with a top and side door. The top door is not a moon roof. I like the top door--a lot-- because once I catch one of the little monst—I mean cats, I don’t want to have to shove it in the door. I love the drop-a-cat door. It cuts down on my injuries by 90%. The little bugg—, I mean cat, only got me once instead of leaving a full set of scratch marks on my hands and arms.

A crate provides a personal, den-like space for your dog to call his own, and it also helps with housebreaking, potty training, and reducing unwanted behaviors like chewing and barking. Choose a crate that will provide adequate space when your dog reaches its’ full, adult size, large enough to stand up without having to hunch and to lie down with legs outstretched. However, don't buy a crate that is too large -- it won’t provide the feeling of safety and security that a dog enjoys in a properly-sized crate.
This is just like every other wire crate except for one thing and it's the most important thing! On EVERY kennel I have purchased the sliding lock was shaped like a sideways "L". You slide it over, then roll the bar down and the end of the "L" locks the "lock into place" holding the door closed. On this crate, it is a simple straight bar that you slide over. If your dog is the sort that will try to get out or starts barking and jumping at the door, (due to hearing someone outside), the latch can side open. Why modify a part that works to something that doesn't work. How much money do you save by leaving a 1" piece of round bar off? And here we have it again folks, the price goes up, quality goes down.

Tough plastic material is ready for heavy use and is easy to keep clean. This pan features a generous lip to prevent food, water, and whatnot from spilling over the sides.
I bought this crate for my rescue when I learned his foster parents crated him and that's where he liked to sleep. He's a big dog - over 80 pounds when I adopted him - and this is the perfect size for him to both lay down and sit up in. It was easy to put a bed in the bottom and he slept in the crate for weeks until he became comfortable sleeping in his dog bed in the bedroom. He loves his crate though so he's easy to please in that regard.

Update: We traveled quite a bit this holiday season and this portable crate was absolutely awesome! I have seen some reviews about bad zippers but suspect it's due to misuse. You have to raise each side before zipping it -- just common sense, people. Otherwise, there is too much pressure on the zipper. I think zippers on this crate are sturdy. Another suggestion is placing your dog's favorite bed inside. The crate (we have extra large) has plenty of room to add an extra large fluffy dog bed our dog loves. Because the crate folds flat, we place the crate in the cargo area and cover it with dog's bed when on the road. The dog sprawls like a queen! :) When we get to the destination, we unfold the crate, throw the bed inside, and voila -- cozy house that ... full review

Crates that don’t close securely are pretty worthless, so you’ll want to make sure that any crate you select has high-quality latches. But beware of crates with exceptionally large latching mechanisms, as some dogs will learn how to open the door themselves.  If you have an especially escape-prone pooch, you’ll probably need a crate especially designed for Houdini dogs with double latches or more advanced locking mechanisms.
Addendum added January 28, 2013: My vet had never noticed these carriers because I had never put one up on the exam table until my last vet visit. She looked at it with interest and totally concurred with my opinion of having a small, but open carrier for my two (panicky) cats. She has seen more than a few overheated pets in too enclosed carriers. Since I live far from the vet I always carry spare towels for the bottoms of the carriers and she found that the "stable floor covering'* I use was an additional comfort feature for my pets long trip to their appointments. (I just ordered the larger size of this carrier for my "Phat Kat" and will donate her previous carrier to our local animal shelter.)
