Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyIrish Seems pretty good
Easy enough to put together. Took a few hours and 2 people. The chain link fence seems pretty thin and cheap so I don't think it will last more than a few years b/f it starts to rust through. Other than that it is pretty good. Once you put it up it can't really be moved with out it coming apart. I would not try tp move it cause if you ask me it will get all screwed up of you try. Over all it seems to be pretty good. This is not a crate to put your dog in all day just to rot. If you have a big dog it may be able to break out. But if you are looking for a safe place to park your pup for a short outside juant this is for you.

Took me 3 days to singlehandedly get this kennel put together. Had trouble with some lines of the chain link fencing twisting into the wrong positions, even when all were correctly linked on initial inspection. The frame is relatively easy to put together, but the chain link is HEAVY, so a 2nd person would help. In addition, it is tough to get a really taut pull on the chain link on your own, so again, a 2nd person would come in handy. Finally, the metal ties used to attach the fencing at the top, poles and bottom are very stiff and hard to manipulate. Have a small wrench available to help in their twisting and tying. Looks good on completion, as long as it is on level ground.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gatorade21 Nice Big Kennel, work for my 120lbs Akita
The kennel is really good for the price. Its has lots of room for my big dog to move around and be comfortable. Its easy to set up with basic tools. I did it by myself in about 1.5 hours. The only thing I didn't like is that the metal ties for the chain link are not that easy to use and didn't tighten up the chain link to the bars that well. So I drove down to home depot and bought heavy duty, thick zip ties and tied down the chain link fence to the bars every 2 ft. Now the walls are sturdy. Overall its a good kennel for the price, just buy a cover or tarp for shade and your dogs will be all set.

I got this about a year ago to keep my dog free of the yard till she was a little more tame. Easy to set up with two people and works great! To address the issues that I had and have read...the ties are not enough as the dog gets bigger! Get a roll of metal wire and thread the base. Takes time but keeps the dog from getting under a loose spot. The other is the door...my dog pulls on it till it moves enough to open the door! Get about a foot of chain while at Home Depot with some way to secure it together to keep the door from giving. You won't find better at the pet store at this cost!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MEH8050 It is just as advertised
My wife requested a kennel so that her large and small dog could have an area for movement and fresh air without access to the entire yard. One has a sensitive stomach and throws up after eating grass! This kennel kit was the perfect size to fit a small patio adjacent to a home office. I was able to assemble the unit without assistance and slide it into place. The dogs can now go directly from the house into the kennel with sun shade fabric to provide respite from the sun in summer. The kit included everything needed and was well engineered to go together as noted in the instructions. It is sturdy when assembled and has met or exceeded our expectations. We have been using it about one month.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by damama I'm not sure.....
I must have not read, the product description, or it may have not be clear...I had no idea it was a kit, that needed to be put together. My husband and I are both disabled, together we almost make a whole person. I thought this was like the panel pens We have had in the past....just connect the panels.
Needless to say, it is still in the box in the garage. Not sure when someone will happen by and we can con them into helping us put it together.
I'm sure it is a nice kennel....just it is not any good to us at the moment.
Lesson learned...READ and ask questions firtst.

I BOUGHT THE PRODUCT AND TOOK IT HOME. THE ASSEMBLY WAS SIMPLE AND WE HAD IT TOGETHER FAST. WE PUT OUR 3 DOGS IN IT TO SEE HOW THEY WOULD DO. THEY WERE ABLE TO BEND THE CHEAPLY MADE CHAIN LINK UNTIL THEY GOT A HOLE BIG ENOUGH TO GET OUT. WE ARE NOW GOING TO HAVE TO SPEND EXTRA MONEY TO BUY MATERIAL TO REINFORCE IT AND ON TOP OF THAT IT NOW LOOKS TERRIBLE BECUASE OF THE HOLES AND THE EXTRA MATERIALS. I WOULD NEVER BUY THIS AGAIN BUT EVEN IF I WERE TO RETURN IT, WHO WOULD REIMBURSE ME FOR THE TIME SPENT PUTTING IT TOGETHER????

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1HappyDogOwner Petsafe Boxed Kennel 7' x 12' x 6'
I own a an 18-month-old, 80 pound Chesapeake Bay Retriever that is faster than a speeding locomotive and can jump tall buildings in a single bound.
She is a rescue dog and I am training and socializing her. Sometimes she just needs a short time-out place where she can chill for a few monments. This kennel has been great. The six-foot height keeps her safe and the large interior allows her room to be comfortable.
The kennel arrived approximately a week after it was ordered. The set-up was a breeze due to the easily understood instructions. The entire construction process was completed in about two hours. By the way, I did an extensive internet search and Home Depot had the best price (including shipping). This product/transaction was a definite winner. Many Thanks.
