I ordered the crate in Sage - it is a beautiful color. Since this crate was going to be in my kitchen, I was willing to spend more money on the crate. Unfortunately the measurements are absolutely incorrect, the crate is much smaller. My Weimaraner couldn't even stand up in it. The locks would never hold up as they are plastic and can easily brake. The crate is extremely heavy and could not be used for travel. I returned the crate, a real "hassle" as it needed to be boxed up again and sent. I can not recommend this crate for a large dog, but as it is very pretty, it would be a nice crate for a short dog.

This will be my 3rd crate of this exact design. We have 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and we bought our 1st of these crates in size small, when they were 8wk old pups. Used it until grew out of it, and replaced it with the exact crate, just in size medium. They’ve shared this crate for the last 18 months, and while they still have plenty of room, (15 & 18lb dogs) I'm going to buy the large so they can have some extra room to spend the day in while my husband & I work, and just use the medium for our travel crate. I love, love, love the design and functionality of this crate!! The four-door access is amazing - it can fit right into either a left or right return corner. I also LOVE the garage door style front access. When they're not confined in it, we are able to keep the door open to allow access to their den without always running into an open crate door with our knees when we come around the corner. In the summer the sun-roof is an added benefit, because we can open it up to have air circulate for them by just turning on the ceiling fan.. I know several people have given this crate negative reviews because of the plastic locks, but seriously, we lock the crate every day, our dogs do not have free roam, and we've never had any problems with the locks. They have been just as sturdy as metal for us... I hope if you chose to buy this product you love it as much as I do!

I replaced a fabric pen that my 100 pound dog broke the zippers on with this crate. I need this to travel to dog shows and for hotels. I really like the built-in wheels and the padded handle, but this kennel weighs a lot more than I expected. We took it in the car to the show but didn't end up taking it to the hotel room because it was daunting to haul around. I will keep this and use it with the dogs, but I'm not sure it's the answer to traveling with your large dog.

We got this crate for a 7 week old lab puppy. We have had other wire crates before but this one has features that make it special. The side door gives it a more open feeling although I don't think the puppy cares. He has just started going in on his own through the end door and taking a nap. The top door is handy for when you want to drop in some toys without having the dog trying to escape. The handle and wheels are a nice feature too. We haven't tried folding the crate up for travel but hopefully that will be simple to do. One problem is the width of the crate. We wanted to keep it in the family room during the day and wheel it into the laundry room at night but it doesn't fit through the door. We got the sage green color and it looks quite nice. I would certainly recommend this crate.
