One customer claimed that it only took her 45 seconds to set up, which means that it isn’t complicated to put together. It also is collapsible for storage, though even when folded; it is a large piece of equipment. Lastly, customers were impressed by how the crate itself seemed deeper when you went into it (probably due to the lower pan at the bottom).

However, while it may help provide physical comfort to your pet, remember that it is your pet’s physical needs that need addressing in particular. For helping deal with your dog’s separation anxiety, the ThunderShirt is a possible aid. It is however not the solution. You’ll still need to complete crate training with your pet to ultimately help them get over their anxiety.
Providing your crated dog with something to do will significantly decrease their chances of attempting to escape as it eases boredom and takes their mind off being confined. Kong goes one step further and has made a chew toy that can house treats. Your crated dog will smell and hear that there is a treat inside and will endeavor to get access to it.
Overview: This uniquely designed dog kennel looks like a tiny hut and is designed for outdoor use and protecting your dog from the elements. Its dimensions are huge; five feet long by five feet wide by five feet high. The roof on top of the “hut” is a weather-resistant cover made of polyurethane. The Gazebo doesn’t require tools to set it up, and the access window that is secure and safe to lock and latch.
Some owners had a difficult time with the assembly instructions, claiming they needed to be clearer. This crate is also so big that the only way to really move it is to disassemble the entire unit, so not great for those who want a crate they can easily relocate. And as always, there were a few dogs who managed to make quick work of the crate, although this was relatively uncommon.
Dogs have a natural instinct to have a den enclosure and owners can satisfy these needs by providing them with a crate. Crates are also practical training and housebreaking tool because dogs are naturally averse to soiling in their den. Extra-strong crates can be used to prevent dogs and puppies from destroying their surroundings and chewing furniture.
I am using this cage currently for 2 of my 4 dogs, a little tiny 2 pound chihuahua and an 8 pound mix puppy. Sometimes they "share" and sometimes its just for one or the other. They both "fit" with room to spare. It comes with a divider if I want to keep them separate but so far I have not done so. It's too big to use as a housebreaking aid because it leaves them room to "go" without disturbing their natural instincts to keep their den clean but if I wanted to use it for that it could be done by using the divider. I hesitated for a long time about what size to get and this one seems nice, not too big or too small, it is certainly plenty tall for them.
