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.
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 !
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.
I was happy to find this old style crate which is similar to others I currently own. The top door allows flexibility in taking pets in and out plus gives more air circulation so they don't get hot. Mine like the ability to see what is going on in the room while inside. The materials are sturdy and I have had this style crate for years and years without any problems. The only problem I had with the purchase is this crate was labeled as medium sized. When it arrived I realized that this was the medium sized CAT crate, not the medium sized DOG crate, so it is several inches shorter than I was expecting. While my dogs are small and can still use this smaller crate, I was expecting the larger version. The manufacturer should have a better description because it is too easy for confusion. Since I don't think this style is actually in production any longer this is probably a mute point, but if you run across this crate for sale, be very careful to confirm the dimensions so you know what you are actually getting.
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
