Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rochie Awesome dog kennel, used for a rabbit run, great item.
The kit was on sale for $199.00, it is awesome, it's a 6' w, x 10' L, x6' tall, originally for dogs I bought this for my rabbits. I have a small herd & they love it. A few of the areas, like around the gate are almost accessible for smaller bunnies to get out. But as far as a dog kennel, this is great. Very sturdy, solid, no posts to dig, easy assembly. Even though the diagram shows the wrong image on the inside of the instructions, follow the directions, they are correct, the diagram has an extra "E" bar above the gate. There is only one, not two together. It took a few minutes to realize this, but the picture shows two "E" bars above the gate connected, this would make it 12' wide, there is only one "E". The diagram on the cover of the manual is correct, the detailed picture on the inside of the manual has two "E" bars over the gate, there is only one.

When I ordered this kennel online for in store pickup, I didn't realize it was completely unassembled! It would have taken me years to put this together or I would have had to hired someone which completely made it not worth the price. I opened the end of the box, took a look inside (it was the rolled up mesh that did me in) and took it back for a refund.

Easy to put together by myself, easy instructions, all pieces were there. I set this up for my chickens and have purchased two of them for more room. The going rate for chain link dog runs makes this a good deal. it is not the same quality as chain link fencing but it is pretty sturdy. I am more worried about keeping dogs out than in! I do not like the wire ties that it came with so I purchased a roll of wire and cut pieces to fit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TravelB Not the best
I cannot recommend the purchase of this kennel. It took a great deal of time to put together as the chain link was folded flat and was tangled when removed from the box. The metal bands to connect the chain link to the bars are very difficult to attach even using pliers! The finished product is okay but my bloodhound puppy is able to push the gate open.

I as well bought this for the use of housing chickens. With that being said, I only bought this out of desperation after not being able to find a used dog kennel the size we needed on craigslist. Let me assure The American Kennel Club and any reviewer that there is nothing American about this kennel, it is typical cheap Chinese stuff, and I figured that and accepted that going into the purchase. It is pretty self explanatory that this it is a kit do to the fact that it comes in a box... so there was no confusion there. We ended up taking the first one back because when we arrived back home and started to assemble it we found several of the connector poles had crushed ends, and there was no damage to the box we had picked out. Normally I would have just returned it but we were in a bind so we exchanged it, this time opening the box at Home Depot and going through it the best we could. The Home Depot people we great during the whole exchange. Putting it together is pretty straight forward and there is a video on the Home Depot website as well. Wrapping the thin gauge chain-link around the outside is a bit cumbersome, the biggest problem and gripe that we had was the roll of fencing itself. The instructions state to unroll the tightly packed roll of fencing and repair and re-crimp any ends that "might" have separated, then roll it back up like a rug. Well, I would say at least 1/3 of the links had come undone on both sides, so we went down each side with a pair of needle-nose pliers repairing all of them. Then when you roll it back up and then unroll it around the outside of the frame they get caught up on each other and some separate again. I think it would be easier and more efficient to stretch it between each panel like you do for the door, but that is me. It will work for what we need it for but I would have paid a little more for a used kennel that was the typical heavy duty one that is made out of actual chain-link.

Quality not so great. I would not trust leaving a large dog in it for any length of time. Putting the frame together was not hard but the fencing material was all tangled up together and uneven. It took us about 5 hours to straighten it out and put the tops and bottoms of the fencing back together right. If I had to do it over I spend the extra money and get a sturdier one.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kellt This is lousy
I was totally misled by the picture and the title of the product-chain link kennel. They forgot to mention this is a KIT!!!! Thought I was purchasing panels to attach to each other. This in reality is a kit. You must assemble the poles. Stretch the chain link around. Fasten it all. Took 4 hours so far and STILL isn't done. Wish I would've known. I would've purchased something else.
