Escape resistant - has built in lip to keep door from being pulled inward. Nice and roomy for the bigger breeds. Crate is also able to use a 'vaulted door'. Easy assembly and dis-assembly for travel and cleaning needs. Great crate for the over-sized family fur friend and for professional needs. Thanks doghouses.com!

I bought the XL crate for my 50 pound mix dog as I had read that the L was not large enough to allow a dog to fully lay out. I assembled the crate and on the 1st use, my 10 month old dog ripped the door out with his teeth (in less than 1 hour time). I purchased this crate as a replacement for my old wire cage...I will be going back to the cage which he so far has not destroyed. I like the crate, it is light, assembles easy, but the door attachment system is weak. My dog is not an out of control dog and yet, really easily bent and removed the door (I re-installed it and watched him do it a 2nd time). I will be returning the crate ASAP.

Kennels were damaged(cracked)

      Comments about Petmate Portable Vari Kennel Ultra - Extra Large:

      The Kennels themselves were good but they were cracked during Shipping. The flimsy box that they were shipped in came to me wide open and tape dangling all over. I should have inspected the contents closely before the fedex truck left but they were out of here before I could say anything. I didn't notice the crack when putting together. To make a long story short, I got to the airport to ship a puppy to California and the people at delta cargo said it was damaged and I had to buy one from them for 90.00. Not the deal I thought I got!

        Comments about Petmate Portable Vari Kennel Ultra - Extra Large:

        I have a dog rescue going on for many years in Miami and now we are moving, finally, to north Florida. For the move and after we get there we let groups out to run and play but to eat and sleep each dog has his own crate. This is very important for their safety and our sanity. These crates are sturdy and roomy and the price is outstanding if you go to other sites and compare. I bought about a dozen and will probably come back for even more. In rescue, you can never have enough 'rooms' in the 'inn'.

          The dog crates are well made and user friendly. My 2 Weimaraner puppies are doing great with the crate training and all the vent holes allow them to view each other and feel secure. The size is perfect for my 7 month old pups growing so rapidly that as adults they will be comfortable. It is comforting to have crates that are made of non-toxic plastic material. We are satisfied with the purchase of 2 dog crates with superior quality compared to other brands. I will recommend this brand to all of my friends that own dogs. Vari-Kennel Ultra is one of the best crates I have purchased and have had 3 other brands. Thanks for making a great product. :)

            Hayneeedle is a great site. I ordered this kennel & about 36 hours it arrived in good condition. Kennel is easy to assemble, sturdy, nice looking & our pup likes it. I would recommend it for home use. We have no intention of using it on an airline so can not rate it for that use. The size is good for our spaniel. We are using it as traing aid to eliminate fear of kennel crates. She takes all her meals in the back of the crate but has not yet entered on her own except to eat. The door was removed for this purpose.

              The picture to the left is not the crate I ordered , mine was cut out holes in sides of hard plastic and not wire. I was happy with the quality of crate though. It was unfortunately too small for my dog so I have to return it.

                Ordered this Vari-Kennel for transporting my Great Pyrenees to the groomer/veterinarian/whatever. Arrived surprisingly quickly, was (as all Vari-Kennels are) incredibly easy to assemble, very pleased with both the product and Hayneedle's service.

                  We just purchased this kennel to relocate from Phoenix AZ to Rochester NY. We flew United and although the kennel itself is approved, United has a new rule that requires you to replace all of the plastic butterfly nuts that come with the kennel to metal. I called Petmate to see if they would supply them and they said no, not at this time. Suggested I get them at a local home improvement store.

                    This is a good crate for the money. I have another crate by the same manufacturer, which I bought years ago and it cost a bit more, and is also a tad sturdier. My new dog did chew a little bit by the door, but I utilized the extra tie down spaces and opening for an additional tie by the door and he was not able to open the crate while we are crate training him. I think it is a good value for the money and can be used for airline travel. It was easy to get into my mid-sized SUV as well. This same manufacturer does make the same size crate which is a big tougher, but it costs a lot more. I am pleased with the purchase and it arrived incredibly fast.
