Cons: A purchaser made a good point that this crate was not good for dogs with very severe separation anxiety, as the wires are bendable if he or she is determined to get out. They won’t detach from the soldering, but they can bend and a small enough puppy will clamber out. If you have a dog with separation anxiety, you might want to try behavioral training or look for something less bendable.

I purchased the 24.6" x 16.9" x 15" size which is good for my smaller Shiba - who is about 15 lbs. This is a good lightweight kennel for smaller dogs and makes moving your dog (when in the kennel) easy. The door swings both left hand and right hand which is very convenient - however the door does not operate as smoothly as earlier Petmate Kennels. Assembly is very fast and easy. There are no tie-down holes in this unit - which I think is a minus. Like earlier Petmate Kennels, this particular kennel size has a carrying handle at the top. Be aware that the larger sizes do not have a carrying handle - which I think is a minus. I would give this a higher rating if there were (1) tie-down holes at the four corners, (2) a handle ... full review
The Stationary version of the crate goes further, it is an IATA 82 dog crate which you will need if you are traveling with dogs more commonly associated as fighting or dangerous breeds. This means that that Stationary Crate’s industrial tough design meets the special enhanced IATA CR 82 dog cage requirements for for travel with pitbulls, mastiffs and other breeds that are claimed to be powerful, aggressive, fighting or dangerous.
The wires used for small crates may not be sturdy or rigid enough to retain their structural integrity when used in big crates. Additionally, large dogs have stronger jaws and teeth than smaller dogs do. Accordingly, you’ll always want to look for crates that feature thick, strong wire (if you opt for a wire-style crate – there are certainly plenty of other options out there too!).

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.
If you have a pooch that loves to escape their kennel, check out the Goplus Metal Wire Pet Crate. It is a good crate for those dogs that are keen to get away. It can be easily moved around the house although it is not collapsible, it is relatively lightweight. Indestructible dog crates are a great investment because you will not need to replace it.

Most Helpful review (read the full Amazon review): “Just over all, Mid-West makes the BEST crates. I've bred dogs for over 30 yrs and always use Mid-West crates. They last forever and have great features. This crate really does fit a Great Dane, or any large breed. I use one for my Great Pyrenees. I like the double latches on the doors, more secure than single latches if you have a dog that pushes to get out. This crate is not a “suitcase” crate like the other Mid-West crates, it does not fold down. But…“

Several owners complained that their dog was able to bend the wires and escape, so this isn’t a good choice for dogs who are escape artists, although it should serve fine for most pooches. Additionally, a few owners reported that while the crate can be collapsed, it’s not especially easy to do, so it isn’t a great choice for owners who plan to travel with the crate frequently.
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 have a rat terrier puppy and wanted to find a quality and reasonably priced kennel for her to begin her crate training, and for use for travel when we make our frequent road trips to visit extended family. Our puppy is expected to be approximately 35lbs, so I purchased the MEDIUM size because I wanted a crate that would also be able ... full review
