A beautiful way to make your pet a part of the family room. This is huge for our Border Collie, she could fix in a medium but the large was the same price. We've had her and 2 small dogs in it at the same time... Serves as a perfect side table for our couch too. We've had it for a year now and it still looks perfect. Our dog does not chew, she may push on the door occasionally at most. This is decorative and can contain a dog but is not intended to be a cage or dog pen for active dogs.
We have a one-year old Labrador who chews just about anything. He managed to chew off the acrylic panel that is supposed to protect the front rails and then just scratched the rails a little and broke three of them. Then he tried to get out and got stuck...half in, half out. I am afraid this just isn't sturdy enough for an active dog who loves to chew. Maybe good for a dog with dentures that come out at bedtime.
