can't go wrong with this kennel and the price can't be beat.Read More
Great deal for the price, and its nice to have the gate on the top .would recommend..Read More
This is the 3rd one I've bought as my cat family increases. It is sturdy and well made. Like the double entry system. The only thing I'd like manufacturer to use a more substantial carrying handle. I've tried other carriers but have given them away as this is the best !Read More
This is the second Petmate carrier I've purchased--had the smaller version previously. Was easy and fast to assemble. The plastic housing could be more substantial but is about average for a carrier in this price range. Highly recommend the two-door version as the top (second) door makes it significantly easier to load a recalcitrant pet. Would be nice if Petmate would make a carrier that was about halfway between the small and medium in size. I have an average size cat, and the small was too small, but the medium is kind of overkill and is more difficult to carry and balance. Overall a good buy and would recommend.Read More
The new carrier is so comfortable and non-threatening that our cat, Emme, has taken naps in it!Read More
I am a dog trainer and have seen and used a lot of crates. However my own personal crates have only been for big dogs. I have the extra large model and this is exactly a mini version except the small one has a top opening. I am so glad I got the one with the open on top feature especially for this small dog I have now. I release him from the crate from the front door, as you would do for a larger crate, but when I put him in I always use the top opening.Read More
I have bought many of these, as I do cat rescue. I have learned that the locks can open easily and I'll use cable ties to put in the holes of the locks to secure them.Read More
This is the second Petmate cat carrier I have owned. I like the opening in the top. It makes it so much easier to put a cat in the carrier. I only use it going to vet appointments. I don't know how it would work traveling on an airline. The top latches could come open if not secured.Read More

With patience and time, your pet will enjoy, or at least tolerate, periods of time in a 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.
