I love the size of this crate and the tray on the bottom it's a great thing to have when a "time out" needed. However, we experienced some of the same problems as others; puppy tearing it apart because of small gage wire, welds not holding, needing to use zip-tries to hold the walls together and problems opening the door latches - this is why it received 3 stars for this review. My husband called the company and they readily fixed the issue without a hassle or argument; the company itself gets 5 stars for their customer service.
I wish I would have seen the most recent review. Our puppy, key word 4 month old puppy, was able to destroy this defective and cheap product on its third use. We have used many other kennels with this dog and another adult and never had problems before. The seller is expecting me to pay return shipping on a defect item that is now trash so that I can get a refund. Do not buy this product or from this seller. This is definitely not meant for XL dogs as it states since a puppy was able to wreck it.

I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for, so I was a little concerned that the Frisco crate was so much less expensive than the Midwest crate. I read the reviews and decided to go with this one. First thing...I got it the next day! That was impressive. After getting the huge box opened and separating all the pieces, it took me about 20 minutes without help to assemble the pleasingly sturdy crate. It did take another 20 minutes to clean up all the styrofoam, but I was prepared for that. The instructions were complete and easy to understand, it was easy to identify the pieces, and assembly was easy. I only used pliers once, and that was due to a piece that I probably bent myself.

We purchased this crate as an economical way to move two cats across country. We're currently preparing to be moved by the military from the Raleigh, NC area to Las Vegas, NV. The military will move our house hold goods but not our vehicles or pets, which leaves us forced to move the cats by car and SUV. After researching airline tickets to fly the cats, we were looking at nearly $1,000 to move them. For this crate at less than $100, we're now looking at only a fraction of the cost.

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.)
I just got my crate in today, I pulled it out of the box and put it right back in to return for a refund. It is a peace of junk. I guess they ran out of tops because they used a side panel with a door for the top. The metal pan is bent I have never seen locks like this before. It's flimsy and cheap. I have 4 boxers and already have 3 crates set up, I got this one to move my 6month old to a bigger crate. I would not trust his life to this crate, I honestly am scared he would get hurt or kill his self in this crate. I'm only giving 1 star because I have to give something or I would give it 0 stars! I've asked to return and refund it better not be decided but if it is this crate will see my trash, I've already ordered a better one.
It can be difficult to accurately judge how much room your dog will have in a crate. It's roomier than you might think. We bought the 42" size for our 100 lb adult German Shepherd. She can stand fully upright inside it with comfort and she can turn around. She can lie down and stretch her front legs straight out. She does not have room to exercise, but exercise is not the point of a crate. She is safe, secure and comfortable inside it. It is well made, easy to set up and fold, with a roomy door for clean-up and care. It's about half the cost of a similar crate at a major bricks and mortar retailer. Look for the photo to get a reference. I don't think you'll find a better deal.
I did run into difficulty assembling the crate. One of the latches you have to undo to put the "wall" up was truly nearly impossible to unlatch. It was grueling but after about 15 minutes worth of painful attempts I managed it. Hopefully this was just a flaw in mine and no one else will have that problem.. or they'll figure out how to undo the latch with a tool.
An outdoor dog kennel is a useful tool for training your dog and helping keep them safe while they are outside. It also gives them room to explore a bit, while keeping them to a confined space. There are also a variety of sizes so that you can create the best space for your pet. For example, if you don’t have a fenced yard, you might want a larger space for an outdoor kennel, whereas if your yard is fenced, a smaller option that your dog can retreat to might be better.

I purchased the 42 inch crate as a recovery area for my elderly cat. She loves it and continues to use it as her private apartment even though she is currently well. She won't use the shared food or litter boxes anymore and she will ask to go back in her crate (by rattling the door) when she wants either. She spends the night there and I've never had to coax her in, only out! If I had known she would love it this much I would have gotten the 48 inch size.

Our 11 week old German Shepard puppy was able to open the top latch and tried to get out of the top of this kennel. He was wedged in the cage so tightly that when he was found he was dead. We were gone less than 30 minutes. Our children are devastated. We are devestated. This kennel was suppose to be a safe place for our puppy. I hope no other family has to experience a tragedy like this.
