    Best I’ve owned, March 22, 2013

    Having raised and cage trained many dogs from pups, we’ve usually given the bulky cages away after successful house breaking. We found this to be the best we have owned over the years because:

    1) Cage is very sturdy. Others we have used have had much thinner and more easily bent wire.
    2) Two doors. Inevitably you need to place the cage in a position where a side door is needed.
    3) Divider to constrain puppies. A divider is the way to train a small pup, limiting their ability to relieve themselves to only where they rest. They get it much more quickly. In every other situation, I built my own divider out of plywood. This would have saved me construction time and readjusting as they grew. Another suggestion – Don’t use towels or blankets that might absorb urine during taining. Once or twice and your dog “gets it.” Introduce a blanket or pad only after they are trustworthy in the crate.
    4) Best fold and setup of any cage I have owned.
    5) Price. Checked out three big box pet stores. This was a better value for all the items above at a lower price.
    6) Liked the plastic tray for our situation as our dog is house broken and not a chewer. Think a metal insert might have been better for pups.

    Cons:

    1) Rough spots on wire end edge at doorways. I used a fine file to smooth out the sharp edges I found on several wire ends. The manufacturer should have done the same smoothing they used on the corners at the door openings.
    2) Clips not fully closed. There are metal clips that act as hinges for set up and fold down. Several were not completely clamped close, again making an unsafe edge for you or your pet. A pliers made quick work of that problem.

    I really wanted to give this product a five. But I just felt the slight safety issue was significant enough to mark it down to a four. No blood should ever be spilled by either pet or owner.

    Update: The manufacturer contacted me via Email on this issue. Manufacturing mgmt wanted the date code off the unit to remedy the problem I am very impressed by their followup and attention to Amazon comments!

    Basic Necessity for a City Dog, May 14, 2006

    If you have a medium sized doggie and are looking for a crate because you live in an apartment, this particular model is a good choice. Crate training is amazingly simple (just don’t use it for punishment–make it a happy experience when your puppy go into his crate). We have been using this for two months, and he takes to it easily.

    1. Easy to put together and fold away. Solid black e-coat steel wire, conjoined with small metal plates with welded corners facing out. It comes with a slightly smaller divider that you can hook to the insides of the crate. As our puppy got bigger, we moved the divider and eventually removed it.

    2. The two doors (one on the long end is off-centered) are not removable and opens only one way so it’s not omni-directional when you place it in tight spaces. You may want to check out some crates with three doors if so.

    3. The bottom tray is made of black-composite plastic material, easy to wipe clean and slide out from under the short end of the door.

    4. I like the double latch, but some people may find it a little more work to open and close day-to-day.

    5. If you buy a crate cover, check out Cratewear Pet Dreams 3-Piece (which fits this model well, but only work with the door on the short end).

    6. For this price, it’s a good crate to highly consider because your goal is to have a sanctuary for your puppy (for time out and quiet-time) and to housebreak your dog and/or temperate from negative behavior (such as chewing furniture, etc.)

    I hope this review is helpful for you.

    Great crate, December 21, 2005

    I bought this crate for my 30-lb beagle/terrier mix dog and it’s great. It folds up in a cinch (it’s literally 3 steps and takes about 10 seconds max) and has carry handles on the side, so it’s really easy to transport. I like having the 2 doors so I have options of how I can place the crate in a room. There are latches on the top and bottom of each door so it’s very secure. Great crate!

    laura h – Looks like a Maine Coon. These guys don’t reach full size ’til their a several years old! It’s not unmmoocn for them to weigh 20+ lbs and have size 8 feets. For the most part, if this breed was any more laid back, they’d be dead. Love shot #2 — he looks so regal looking over his kingdom with the clouds around his head!
