I'm torn on how to rate this.
We needed a "training crate" with the main purpose of keeping a puppy captive so that it can learn to hold it and not eliminate in the house. As long as the dog isn't trying to break out of the crate, I think this works fine. However, if using this XL sized crate with a big, strong dog, I have no doubt that they would destroy the thin wires and be out in short order. The description gives the impression that this is a strong cage (uses word "durable"), which this is not at all. I would not call it a "cage" as much as a "training crate". To me, the word "cage" implies a strong structure that will withstand the captive's attempts to escape. This crate is not strong enough to be called a "cage", in my opinion.
Since my need a strong "cage", just a "training crate", this works fine for me. I just know that there will be folks that order this thinking it is going to be sturdy enough to contain their strong dog who wants out, and will be very unhappy when they see how light the metal is that makes up the walls of this crate.
-The thin wire used to make the sides of this crate keep it relatively light so it can be transported easier.
-Latches are hard for dog to unlock
-Included divider is a nice extra
-nice plastic floor pan
-great crate for "crate training" a dog that won't try to get out of the crate
-The thin wire used to make the sides of the this crate bends very easily.
-Sides snap together in a way that is secure enough to hold together with a calm dog, but likely would come apart if the dog started bouncing around and trying to get out.
Again, I think it is a great product for the right purpose. I just don't think that the description makes the scope of intended use clear.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality build and finish
This kennel is great for our 4 m/o lab pup. He's got room to romp around in it with toys and can still have lots of room to lay down. He even fits in there with our 90# adult lab. It has helped tremendously with potty training!

I bought this for our new basset hound puppy. I wanted to get something that she will fit in when she gets full grown. I was very happy with this crate. We bought a plush bed to put in the bottom of it (just to make sleeping more comofortable) and she goes in and out on her own free will to play and sleep. I am very happy with this product.

This crate was purchased to protect my home and furnishings from our new rescue puppy. It is working out well for us. It is set up in the living room and she has taken to playing and resting in it! She is a lab mixed with something HUGE! At just three months she is close to 30 lbs and has recently gotten all her puppy teeth. If left free to do whatever she wants I feel that she would eat my dining room table and chairs in one afternoon!
The quality of this crate is very excellent! I love having the two doors, for it makes placement so much easier in the house and seems to be more secure for our puppy (more like a play space than the scary place she was in before coming to our home). It folds very easily for transport when we visit family and friends, is not extremely heavy, and fits easily in the back of our small SUV. So far it has stood up well to all her big puppy antics and she has been unable to eat, dig, or chew her way out!. The removable bottom tray makes it easy to clean if/when there are any accidents (I just take it outside and spray it off with the hose)!
I purchased the 42 in crate thinking that she would be around 70 pounds at maturity and I'm certain that this size would have been adequate for my needs, but now that the vet is suggesting her mix is probably great dane and her maturity weight will be in the 90-100 lb range, I am certain that I will be shopping for a larger crate in the future and will definitely look for the GoPet Club brand.
I bought this cage for our basset hound. I saw on another persons review that they had a basset so I knew it was the right size. ( Thanks for putting your dog breed in the review) We have a 10 month old that weighs 45 pounds. This cage is the perfect size for him. He likes being in there throughout the day. The cage is very sturdy and is a great size for him, he has extra room to move around. I like the option of having 2 doors to open, which is useful when finding a spot to put it in my house. I would recommend this to anyone.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good sturdy item
great for large dogs, easy to assemble, fits most anywhere and contains the dog. My dog is an escape artist but he cannot get out of this crate unless we let him out. The crate is easy to transport because is folds up easily with a carry handle. My dog cannot be left alone at night he chews everything, this crate was a life savor to me and my furniture. Thanks so much overstock.
