I purchased the medium and the large to figure out which size was best. I have a beagle mix who was able to fit the medium but was very confined. So I exchanged and now have two larges. My dog is 45 lbs can lay in this large kennel comfortably. When stretched out on her side, she basically fills the...

My husband and I travel to visit our children quite a bit and we have two 12lb dogs we enjoy taking with us. But putting a large metal crate in a small car was always a time consuming feat, and took up so much room in the car. We saw this wonderful crate in a catalog that Sierra Trading sent to the house and we immediately made the purchase. It rolls up into a zippered bag that is lightweight and easy to carry. You can take your dogs with you to the park and visit friends so much easier. A great idea!

The design of this is very good. I wish it had a bit more screening for hot summer days, but I am very happy with the mechanics of the folding design and sturdiness. As other reviewers have noted, however, the fabric smells very bad for a while. I let it air out for a few days, and wiping it down with a damp towel seemed to help. I hope the smell dissipates fully. If it does, this will be a very nice portable crate.

I have the smaller version of this kennel and have used it for several years. Got a larger dog and needed the bigger kennel. I like it because the set up and take down are incredibly easy yet it is a sturdy kennel, which I need for my rowdy Lab mix. I use it for crating my dog at agility trials. It is much easier to transport than a wire kennel.

This crate is easy for travel. It has a shoulder carry case that makes it easy to carry in and out of hotels and dog trials. It is so easy to setup, take down, and pack into its carry bag. The only drawback which caused 4 stars instead of 5 is the edges of the netting at each lower corner of the door will tear away. I purchased one just like it a few years ago and the door screen tore away from the corner in less than 25 uses. My husband insisted on staying with this type of soft create in spite of this problem because of the positives listed earlier. The screen tore away because our pointer likes to lean against the screen.
It is not. Crates must be made of solid plastic, wood or metal and cannot fold down due to safety considerations. Crates for travel by cargo cannot leak and must be secure to prevent the escape of the pet from the container.

Just the one door on the long side. It was kind of a surprise to me too, but our dog had no problem getting used to it. It does have a flap that opens on TOP for easy access to your dog.

Still no end door because of the mechanism to set up and take down the crate is at both ends.

The only door is on the side. The top also zips open. But no doors on the ends, probably because the support bars that keep the crate standing create a big x on the ends.

Just on the side (one zippered door on the wider side of the crate)

This has a screened opening lengthwise which opens with one u-shaped zipper. There is also a zipped opening on the top.

It only has the one of the front, but there's also an opening on the top. The supports are on the side, so it doesn't look like they could put a door there.

This crate has one "door"...almost as big as the entire length and height of the front of it. The zipper goes around the two sides and bottom so that when unzipped, the "screen door" can be rolled and secured at the top with an attached velcro strap.
