Our two little shih tzus love their cage and love to snuggle in it.Read More
I bought this crate for my 6 month old LARGE samoyed. I wanted one that she wouldn't outgrow and the size of this crate is great for her. The cage is very sturdy. I am very happy with the quality of the cage. My only complaint is that the packaging that it is shipped in was not sufficient. The crate is VERY heavy and when it arrived the box was a bit torn up. The reason I only rated the crate a 4 was because it did arrive bent, but it is so heavy that I didn't want to go through the hassle of returning it and having a new one shipped. I believe a new one probably would have arrived in the same condition.Read More

How to Introduce Your Pet to a Pet Kennel
Introducing your dog to a kennel or crate can be tricky because some pets do not want to be confined to a small space. Dogs usually acclimate to the den-like environment quickly, but you'll need to start out by showing her that it's a safe environment in order to help her learn to like it. With patience and time, your pet will enjoy, or at least tolerate, periods of time in a kennel. Crates and kennels, if used properly, can provide a place that your dog feels is her own space while also protecting your home from your pet.

How to Choose the Right Dog Kennel Size
One of the first things you need for a new dog is a quality dog kennel.

The wrong size dog kennel, however, can make things uncomfortable for your pooch and a pain for you. As a rule of thumb, kennels and crates should be at least 4 inches taller and longer than your dog and allow him to stand, sit, and turn around easily. You'll also want to make sure there is water and a blanket or towel in there for him. These guidelines can help you find the right fit for your pup when shopping for dog kennels.
