A+++ for Pet Gear - this crate ROCKS!

After doing extensive research and reading a lot of crate reviews, I purchased this crate based on its appearance, design, and owner reviews via Petco.com. I bought this crate (in "Brick") for the specific purpose of transporting my 14 year old/13LB cat (who had never traveled longer than 5 minutes in a vehicle) for my move from the Northeast to the South. We drove 2 days, 1140 miles, and spent one night in a pet-friendly hotel.
My cat LOVED this crate and when she wasn't sleeping, she was looking out the crate windows at the various scenery. She never meowed or cried the entire trip and she was not medicated (except for some catnip here and there!) The size of the crate was perfect - she could easily stand, sit, and sleep. I was able to put her regular fleece cushioned cat pad right inside/on top of the crate's removable liner for additional protection and comfort. The crate also held a few of her favorite toys and a food/water dish without crowding her.
The 4-door design was incredibly useful and practical - we were able to open one of the doors and put her litter box right up against the crate so she could move back and forth easily and we didn't have to worry about unexpected "accidents" or about her getting out! The garage-door and top doors were also handy and made it convenient for us to move her when/if needed. The wheels and handles allowed for an easy transport to and up the stairwell (we used two people to carry it up the stairs for safety) right into the hotel room.
The plush pad and the fact that the crate assembles easily, folds flat and has a sturdy carrying case are just bonuses! We are thrilled with this purchase and are happy to continue to use this aesthetically pleasing crate in our home on a regular basis when our cat wants a comfortable and safe place to retreat! Thanks for your amazing design and ingenuity Pet Gear - keep up the great work!!" >^..^<

The crate looks like an awesome dog crate, but I really wish it would be bigger so I could put my Irish wolfhound in it. Now the only crate i can put her in is a black wire jail cell :(

A little larger than I thought it would be but it is wonderful. She can stand up , turn around or cuddle in the rug. I love how easy it is to put together and the carry case. The three doore...they are great. The open side is a real plus for the dog to go in & out of when they don't need to be shut up. I have it set up with the open side here at home and when we travel we will use it as a crate. My dog really seems to like it.

WE LOVE IT

We bought this for a 20 lb puppy we expect to get to 65 or so lbs. It appears very sturdy and well made, although the pad is thin and we replaced it.
The large front door is terrific. we leave it open(still out of the way) and the pup often goes in on her own.
Also, it shipped and arrived promptly and is easy to set up.
I would recommend this to a friend!

BEST CRATE EVER INVENTED

I purchased two of these travel dog crates about two months ago at Petco.com. I have two golden retrievers and they love this products as much or better than I do. This crate is defiantly the best crate ever invented. This dog crate is well built , sturdy and it has wheels so it can easily be moved .It makes cleaning under and around the crate a breeze. This crate does not scratch floors, walls or snag on carpets in your home or auto .The crate has a home friendly look about it. This crate is also great for travel. It folds flat and sets up in less than a minute once you are use to it. I do recommend reading all the directions before setting the crate up for use.
I would recommend this to a friend!
