Rated 5 out of 5 by iLoveDogs47 4th kennel from them. LOVE IT
Love this brand. 4th kennel in 5 years for 3 dogs. We ended up buying more because the pups grew out of them.
This kennel is great for training and durable for training. (Key word: TRAINING). As in consistency, training your dog to love it, durable (can last a dog's lifetime if you train your dog right and get one big enough for when pups are full grown), provides sufficient enclosure to make your dog less anxious compared to the wire crates but still open enough for air.
Plus, USDA & IATA airline compliant. Although, some airlines require all metal hardware, it's an easy fix just replace the plastic nuts with metal ones from home depot. We got these solely for this reason because we are military and always moving. So they trio as an in-home, car, and airline kennel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TimandAidan It is good
This crate/carrier is a PetSmart store brand and works great. Unfortunately, when we are not home, our dog needs to be crated or she will destroy the home. We have gone through many different types of training and other things to try to break her of these habits. Nothing has worked, so for her safety per recommendations of her vets and trainers, she has to be crated.
She has escaped from every type of crate/kennel/carrier that we have gotten up until this one. She is very comfortable and can not escape.
The only down fall to this product, is that they do not sell replacement parts. My dog has slowly started pulling the cross bars from the door on it, and PetSmart does not sell/carry replacement doors. So instead of just purchasing a door, you are required to buy the whole crate. This makes no sense to me as it is a completely self assembled product and not something that is one solid piece assembled in a factory. If it wasn't for this fact, I would have rated it excellent.
