Great Crate at a Great Price!

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!

Nice crate, bad door.

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.

    Comments about Petmate Portable Vari Kennel Ultra - Extra Large:

    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.

        Comments about Petmate Portable Vari Kennel Ultra - Extra Large:

        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.

          Comments about Petmate Portable Vari Kennel Ultra - Extra Large:

          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.
