I bought this crate in brown and my dog really enjoys it. It isn't an eyesore in the family room. Only thing is the screws are plastic and a few of them did not catch probably. This makes the crate a bit shaky.
Easy to put together, I purchased two small for my welsh terrier and mixed beagle. This is not a training crate by any means, do not put a puppy or chewer in the type of crate. For you dogs safety always crate train them. If you have to evacuate your home you will be glad to have a pet that is crate trained. This wood crate is a dark brown as described, and will provide a cozy place for my dogs to sleep. It looks so much better than the wire crates my pets have now. Good purchase at a fair price. Delivery was quick.
Bought this for our Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Molly, who is small for her breed at about 25 lbs. It serves as a side table between my husband's and my chair. It is cozy for Molly, and she likes it. It is fine for when we have to leave her for a couple of hours, but I would not leave her in it for a longer period of time. We have had several compliments on how nice it looks, and we are happy with it. My one complaint is the latch. Molly is a laid-back dog and usually just curls up and naps when left in her crate, so the little latch supplied is adequate, but an anxious dog will probably break right through due to the little latch. By the way, there is no mention of the latch at all in the instructions for assembly. Assembly was easy. The crate is very dark brown, almost black, and blends in fine with our woodwork iin our home.
I bought 2 large expresso crates. No complaints. Do the job and don't cost *** . My dogs are crate trained, so I just wanted something a little "prettier" for the living room. This expresso has a little bit of a reddish undertone to it when you get close with lots of light. Picture is accurate though. Some expresso furniture I've ordered look more black/brown instead. If your dog doesn't like being in the kennel and is strong, it could possibly damage the crate and get out. My 70lb lab retriever and 50lb boxer/shepherd mix each have plenty of room and enjoy their new homes.
