Beautiful Crate! Just like in Photo!
on March 9, 2011
I love this crate! It's gorgeous! Looks way better than the black crates or silver crates/kennels.
It's a perfect fit for my Bichon's height. Some Bichons and other small dogs are climbers though, so it may be possible for them to climb out. It's about 3 feet high, though, so it's not that easy to climb out of. It looks awesome. I do wish the seller offered a top for it. I see in the picture on my item it shows a label with an optional top. I can't read the language so I don't know what it says or how I can get a top. I would love to get one, just in case my dog tries to get out, jump over, or climb over it.
The white fencing part is metal and very strong. The white bottom is like the regular kennels that you see in the store which are plastic, but a little better quality than the black flooring in the regular kennels. But the pink posts are plastic. I am trying to think of a way to describe the plastic. It is like plastic on a toy. It's not that I think it is weak, but I just thought the pink part was going to be like the resin on slides at the kids' park. It's not. If you bang the plastic against something hard or hit it with a hammer it will shatter in pieces. I don't like that it's cheap plastic on the posts, but would I return it? No way! It looks awesome! If your dog is calm and a smaller breed, then it will be fine. But if you have a german shepherd puppy, this kennel is not strong enough for it for sure!
Still I give it 5 stars because the company shipped it right away, it is new, looks exactly as the picture you see (minus the water bottle, pink bed, and training pad holder) and it looks cute cute cute!! Even my adult male Bichon went in it because he liked it so much! Lol.
