      Comments about Petmate Deluxe Vari Kennel Jr. - Large:

      I was happy to find a quality dog crate for my 20 lb Cairn Terrier. Reviews on the new style Vari Kennels were not good, indicating poor quality, flimsy material and crates that broke open. I also had a hard time locating the right size crate as most are too small or too large. Well,this delux version is perfect. Most important, it's a sturdy material. The dial closures are quick and easy to use. The only thing I don't like is that the handle, which is not as pictured. It is attached only at each end and doesn't seem like it would hold my dogs weight. I would not carry the kennel by the handle for fear it would break. It will however provide a secure den for my dog which is why I bought it. I do recommend the product but would not use it for shipping because I don't trust the handle. The vendor gets 5 stars for excellent communication and service, couldn't have been a better transaction.

        I use this carrier to crate my Terriers. It is a little difficult to put together. However once assembled it is very secure. The latch is a definite plus when compared similar spring latches. I own 2 of these.

          For the money, this is a great product! Needed a crate for our 12 lb chipin (chihuahua-pinscher) for sleeping at night and for crate-training.
          We added a lightweight blanket for coziness.
          This crate serves our purpose and the price is excellent.

            [...].I bought this carrier for my rabbits and it's about big enough for a cocker spaniel to sit comfortably inside. I wouldn't say it was adequate enough for airline travel (a little flimsy) and the handle doesn't seem that sturdy.It was very easy to put together and will serve its purpose of transporting my rabbits to the vet.

                  Comments about Petmate Deluxe Vari Kennel Jr. - Large:

                  NEVER use this kennel to punish your pet. If you do your pet will associate the kennel with punishment and will reject it.

                  Our pup loves to take his naps in the kennel. When we need to leave the house for up to 2 hours we simply put the pup in the kennel, close the door, turn on a radio or TV block outside sounds
                  and upon return DO NOT praise your pet for staying in the kennel, simply open the door and walk away. The pet will think that being in the kennel is a normal event and not think anything of it if you need to put him/her in the kennel in the future. Always put a small container of water in the kennel when you leave the pet in it with the door closed.
