Excellent Product For Small Animals

We have a large (13-pound) cat that we wanted to be able to sit outdoors, in a protected area, to enjoy the birds, animals, and nice weather. But the enclosure had to be heavy enough and strong enough to keep coyotes away. We live next to a forest preserve and we hear all the time about small pets being taken by coyotes in the area. I looked at a number of different "pens" or "kennel" products, and none seemed to fit our needs. Then I found this product at a local store. It was the last one they had, so I purchased the display model. I disassembled the floor model, put the components in the back seat of my SUV, and then put it back together at home. I was impressed with the quality of the construction, the simplicity of the design, and the overall weight and strength of the product. It is light enough that two people can easily pick it up and move it. But it's also heavy-duty enough that it requires some strength — more than what a coyote or large dog might be able to muster. If I need to do so, I can easily attach a couple of 5 or 10-pound weights to the metal panels in a couple of spots to make it even more difficult to move. Or, if it is out in the yard, I can use a few metal stakes to stake-down the enclosure in several spots to give it even more security. I would not recommend this product for any animal larger than about 10-15 pounds. It is not designed to be used with a medium-sized or large dog. I'm sure the company that makes this product — Advantek — has other units that are built for larger animals. All in all, I think this is a great, high quality, intelligently-designed product that will give us many years of great service!
I would recommend this to a friend!

This is a great way to take your pet with you and give him some room. I do feel that the plastic couplers would be better made of a stronger material, it is easy to set up and very strong if put together completely. The top does need to be on to secure its integrity. My Lab does just fine in this.

Not worth it

I put this together very easily. There are plastic pieces at the top and bottom to hold the panels together. There are also "spokes" across the top to hold the cover. As it was a nice day, I didn't put the top on. I have a 24 lb Scottish Terrier. He was able to push/jump against the panels and break 2 of the plastic pieces, and effectively folded the structure. In addition, the latch is flimsy and easy for a dog to open. There is a small hole where a pin or small piece of wire could be placed and lock it but it won't hold for long as the hole has very little metal around it. If my 23 lb dog can break out (took him 20 minutes) a larger or stronger dog would be out in less time. Returned it.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Hello,
We apologize for the inconvenience you have found with The Pet Gazebo. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and your experience with this product.

Our Pet Gazebo must be assembled with the roof attached as it will make the entire kennel sturdier and therefore hold up against a dog’s weight. Without the roof, the kennel is not structurally sound. We have since updated our instructions to clearly state the roof must be attached. Fortunately, your pet will get to experience lovely weather with the roof on even more so because he will be protected against those dangerous UV rays!

We are very sorry you were disappointed with your purchase and hope to see you in the future as we develop some new exciting and high-quality products.

Thanks again.
