Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by critterdink Easy assembly!
Just as it advertised, it was a fairly easy assembly. My 14 year old son put it together. We put tarps around it and now my dogs have a fully insulated dog house for the winter.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MJR1947 Lower quality than expected.
The price of the item is good as compared to pricing out the pieces individually. The instructions weren't bad as some reviewers thought, but when it comes to the fencing itself, it's a nightmare. It's the cheapest poorly made fencing I've ever seen, and I put up several hundred feet of chain link fence on my property. The instructions say to check the individual pickets to see if any have come unhooked. Most have come unhooked, not only that a large percentage of the zig-zag links have twisted up or down a turn or two. It'll take longer to straighten out the fencing as it will to erect the frame. It's a good product if you have more time than money, and a very low threshold for frustration.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by None Works but difficult to setup and why so cheap
I had the already purchased another fence that was put together and did not require the pain and misery of installation. Do your self a favor and get one of those already complete.
This one was made from a thinner tube wall thickness but the fence material was the same. The door was smaller too. Just cheaper all around. I kept it and meshed it together with another fence to form a chicken coop run. Working well so far but I can not recommend it! Cheap!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Knudi It's nice
its very nice. like the fact that you can decide on how big you want it. the only bad thing was that the instructions were a little confusing. easy to move after assemble and pushes into the ground to anchor the kennel. door is smaller than it is in the video.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Edward Great! So much cheaper than fencing the whole yard!!
Great product, sure beats the cost of fencing in the whole yard. Plenty sturdy enough for our two medium size dogs. Box was way too heavy to drag around back, but it was easy to bust it open and carry a few poles at a time, and a ten yr. old carried the roll of fencing. It took three adults and two kids about an hour just to get the chain link fence unrolled, stretched around the frame and wired down, mostly due to the strands snagging on each other.
I researched for many hours before picking this one, and then I checked everywhere for it, and found the best price from Home Depot. A week later I still think I bought the right one from the right place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DJBatesNC Using for flock of Urban Hens
I wouldn't keep my lab in it, but my hens like it! The dog doesn't try to break into it to get the birds so in that regard it works pretty much as expected. We're hanging a bar across one corner for a roost and have put a tarp on for a temporary roof to keep the birds dry and shaded. The chain-link gauge is sufficient to hold the roost with all 3 hens on it.
The run assembled very easily and quickly with just myself and my husband putting it together.
We did put the door on upside down so we could have it open in instead of out which makes it a bit easier to keep the hens from rushing the door to get out and free-range.
All in all - everyone is REAL happy with how it's performing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Crutch123 What a Pain!
Upon unpacking all of the necessities from the box, we realized the chain link was tangled. While trying to untangle the chain link, we realized the reason it was tangled was because some of the links were not even connected. Several hours and curse words later, the kennel was built but looks terrible due to some of the defective chain link. I went to work the next day thinking "well, at least I don't have to worry about my dogs getting out anymore." WRONG! I came home from lunch to see one of them on the front porch. I went to kennel to figure out how and where he got out, there simply weren't enough ties in the package to keep him in the kennel and he is a BIG dog. My husband had to take ties from the top of the kennel to secure the bottom. What an overpriced, dysfunctional, cheaply made, piece of junk. Probably will never purchase anything from this brand again. We should have just built one ourselves.
