I have a crazy pit bull mix who was destroying my house. He was a rescue which was found roaming in the Az mountains. He hikes about 30 miles with my husband every week, but suffers from severe separation anxiety. He has destroyed two of the regular type kennels. I thought he would have to go and was just distraught. (He's very sweet.) This kennel saved him from having to return to the rescue league. (He was there over 6 months when he came home with us, people are nervous about the pit mix.) He can not get out of this kennel and seems to resign himself to accepting it. It's small but he can stand up in it and turn around (he weighs 50 lbs). He has his bed in it. It has been a lifesaver for us. We don't travel with this kennel, its a little of an odd size. But the design is what keeps him from escaping.
This is an awesome crate. But it will not fit a dog bigger than about 50 lbs. The design is good. it is easy to assemble (it does take time though). As far as fit, consider this crate to be the equivalent of a 32" crate (i.e. 50 lbs max) Pros: build quality - I doubt any other crate comes close to the level of protection this crate offers in a traffic accident. cons: heavy - difficult to move around by yourself
