I bought this kennel to attach to my 50 ft x 60 ft chain link fenced play area for my 7 dogs. Prior to using the kennel, we had a few escapes while trying to put them all in the play area as well as when we were bringing them back into the house. I left the fencing off one side of the kennel and attached it to the play area fence surrounding the gate. That way if a dog runs out while we are opening the gate, they are still contained in the kennel and we can leash them safely. It has worked beautifully. The dogs and humans are much calmer. The kennel was easy to put together with 2 adults and my teen daughter. It took us about 2 hours, even with adjusting the fencing to leave one side open. I am very happy with the purchase.

I bought this as I was pricing out building my own 6x10 kennel. Cost was near the same if not a little cheaper and I figured that made the precut, pre-engineered one a better deal. Once I got it home and started getting it together, I realized that i it was going to work as I needed it, it would be just barely and with modifications. The railing is TINY, just 1" and not strong at all. The chain link is weak. The gate is an atrocious design! You can latch it and still just push the gate open as it swings around the pole... If you're putting a larger dog in a kennel there's probably a reason, and unless you modify this one of three things will happen: it'll either end up on its side somewhere and your dog will be free, or the gate will be wide open and your dog will still be free; or, your dog will fuss with the chain link enough to pull the tensioners off the puny hooks that "hold it in place".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary Perfect for what we needed!
We have an auto body repair shop that we take our dogs to and from with us each day. (60 lb boxer and an 80 lb american bulldog) They had destroyed the break room and almost killed themselves chewing the AC power cord. We assembled this kennel and placed it inside the workshop and it is perfect! It took 3 of us about an hour and a half to set it up and feel really good about it. (Probably would have been fine, but we added some extra anchors to the frame with wire coat hangers for a little more peace of mind... the boys are pretty good at figuring out any weak spots.) The frame connections are a little loose until you get the chain link stretched around it... We just put a little tape around the joints to hold it for a few minutes.
We have our break room back and the bulldog doesn't have to live in his taxi all the time so that he can't get to the drywall.
The kennel rocks!

Very easy to assemble if you follow instructions, I used this kennel as part of a chicken tractor, so therefor I added a roof made of chicken wire and beefed up the sides with horizontal rails mid way between top and bottom,I used self tapping 3/4 screws where each piece come together, I added retractable wheels on one end so it can easly be moved aroung the yard.

Bought one so I could keep chickens in because I got the Idea online the first week another dog came and scratch and chewed through chain link mesh killed all my chickens then proceeded to get out of the kennel with no problem. Lost a nice rooster and two hens. So if you want to protect any animal inside or from getting in please do not buy this product !

This kennel is sturdy, well built and easy to assemble.
The wire mesh is what holds the entire structure together, therefore, you must stretch it very well, removing any excess and pulling it constantly to make sure is tight before you lock it in place. Kennel comes with plenty of aluminum ties, but you must wrap them 3 times around the wire mesh with pliers. If you just bend them with your hands (as per the instructions) the ties will bend back and come out if your dog pushes against the mesh.
Another good thing: This kennel is like a “starter kit”, because you can always buy more galvanized pipes, wire mesh, ties and make it bigger!

Bought this kennel and I must say that I wish I would have sucked it up and paid a little more for quality. The frame is okay with the exception of how it is connected. The mid pieces can be easily pushed in unless anchored. However still leaves the top to be flimsy. The chain link was of poor quality. It was tangled, miss woven and uneven. Even after removing many strings of the fencing and tying it to the frame it is still loose. A large dog could easily tear this up over time. I live in a remote area and drove 2 hours to purchase this, plus the difficulty of repackaging will probably leave me to just eating the price. I plan on paying for a quality kennel.
