Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
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.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? It's better in person
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.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? similar although you can't see the second opening
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. quality is good.
My cat carriers arrived on time. They are easy to assemble and there is ample room for my cats. I buy the small locks just in case the present clasps should become loosened during trave. The cats can look out the sides and top of the carrier. I usually keep the carrier covered with a blanket though during a trip to the veterinarian. It is very convenient to have two doors. My cats love to sleep in the carriers and it conditions them to be more comfortable during travel. I also place a kitty pad or some soft towel for the bottom of the carrier. I would recommend this carrier and the price can't be beat. This is the older more stable model. I have six of them now.
I have several of these 2-door carriers, but I needed a couple more. Unfortunately, I can't find them in my local stores any more. Fortunately I found them here, and at a good price. They came quickly and were just what I wanted.
The top door is very handy for getting cats into the carrier - much easier than trying to push them through the front door. Newer models that have a top door have complicated doors that are very difficult to use and would be hard to get securely closed with a cat trying to get out. This model is the best, I don't know why they are discontinuing it.
The top load and side load possibilities are great. All my cats seem to hate the front entrance and fight like crazy not to go in, but the top load doesn't bother them as much. The carrier is well built and well vented and can be stacked if need be. With six cats, it's good to have a product I can rely on.
I had one of these years ago but gave it to a friend who needed to move out of state with her cat, so I was glad to find it on Overstock. What makes this carrier the best for cats is the top door. Have you ever tried to get a cat out of a carrier when at the vet? This alternative latching door makes it so easy! By the way, the true color of this kennel is royal blue; it is not peacock blue as pictured. Also, it is a medium size and will not fit under the seat on a plane if anyone is wondering.
This is a fairly nice pet carrier, but the little connectors that hold the top to the bottom aren't very sturdy. I do not trust the top part and bottom part to stay together when my 10 pound cat is in this carrier. They look like they will fall open with just a little bit of giggling. So, I bought a bungi cord to wrap around the entire carrier to keep it together. This works for me.
Thank you for inquiring about the Petmate Medium Two-door Deluxe Kennel. It is not airline approved, however adding a water and food bowl would be airline approved. Here is a link to check out for airline kennels. http://www.united.com/web/en-us/content/travel/animals/kennel.aspx Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 30, 2013
