I think the big difference is just the locking mechanism. Mine came with a tiny lock and an extra divider for training. The locking mechanism on this one lifts the whole front gate up to release it so it would be really hard for an animal to open it. It's a lift and then swing mechanism. The cage door also doesn't flex much at the edges, so you don't have to worry about your pet pushing it open and somehow getting their little head stuck in there. With a few small locking rings you could eliminate all the flex in the door and the pet would have to break the entire wall of the cage apart (unlikely). I honestly think that's really un-necessary though especially if you have a small dog because the default mechanism works nicely.
I have a small dog, and I'm using this to crate train him. I don't think he could ever possibly force his way through it because of his size, but I was concerned with other cage reviews about safety. I think this cage is a good choice / upgrade over the other cages.
Guess what we learned?
Puppies have really sharp teeth, and fabric is vulnerable to said teeth. She made some pretty big holes in the doors of those crates. Puppeh does NOT want to be crated, yo!
So I gave up and bought her this crate, which was recommended by Zak George, the energetic puppy trainer on YouTube. He goes on and on about these crates! And now I know why - she freaking LOVES this crate. I mean, it's not a miracle worker, she still complains when she has to go in, but she is so much less freaked out about it, and she seems more relaxed and happy n there, where she can see out every single possible angle. When we first set it up, she happily walked in and sniffed around, and she happily plays in it as long as the door is open.
It's also really easy to unfold and fold, it pops together easily but also really securely, it's MUCH easier to clean - SO MUCH EASIER. And there is that little divider that can make it cozier as she grows, had we the foresight to just get this one in the first place. Oh, and it was CHEAPER than either of those other two crates, which we got USED from Craigslist. NO LIE.
This crate is a win.

This crate is mediocre at best. The wire gauge is thinner than expected. There are gaps in the near each corner for no apparent reason (see photo). Read morePublished 18 days ago by Dan

Love the cage, how easy it is to open, break down and transport, but my biggest issue with this cage is that BOTH of my dogs have figured out how to open the doors. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kristen
