How to pick the right size kennel for your dog
When it comes to kennels, size matters. Whether you select a plastic or a wire kennel, if it’s too small, your dog will not be comfortable. On the other hand, if the kennel is too large, house training may not be effective, as your pet may go to the bathroom on one side and sleep on the other. To properly size your dog for a kennel, measure him from the top of his head to the floor and from the tip of his nose to the base of his tail. The height of the kennel should be 1-2 inches taller than your pet when they are standing and sitting down, and there should only be enough room for your pet to stand up, turn around, sit and lie down.

Last week, I saw a post from an animal rescuer friend who got into a car accident with three dogs in her car of various sizes, all in wire crates. After the accident, all three dogs were loose, the crates had fallen apart and combusted on itself, and one dog suffered spinal injuries from being thrown.
Fast forward a few days after I shared that post on facebook as a precautionary tale, I got into a car accident myself, with one of my dogs in the kennel/car with me. The impact location was right where his crate was, near the back quarter panel. The impact was fast and hard enough to spin the car around 360. Both my back tires were off on an angle, side airbags deployed, all of it. I walked away with severe bruising all over. My dog ended up with a dislocated hip. I truly, truly believe, that the plastic kennel fit snugly together in a tight space saved him from much worse injury. He could have been thrown, he could have had broken bones.
Please reconsider how you travel with your pets and look into a good quality travel kennel, not just for flying your pet.
Design problems: This new Compass design adopts a different approach to securing the top half to the bottom. Instead of setting the top in place and securing it with built in clips, you now have to set the top onto the bottom and slide it forward about 3 inches into place. The biggest problem is that there are 6 plastic guide slots (6 on the smallest kennel -- 8 on the larger ones) that have to be lined up correctly in order for the top to slide into place correctly. If they're not in perfect position, the top won't fit right. And it is very hard to get all 6 guides in the right position while sliding the top into place. (You've only got two hands!) This basic design flaw is exacerbated by the fact that the kennel is more cheaply made than it used to be (see below). Another design issue is the need to use metal screws and plastic nuts to secure the top after it has been slid in place. The old snap-clip design was so much better -- easy to use and no small parts to get lost. It is difficult and time consuming to take the kennel apart and reassemble it. One positive design feature: the new double-pivot door is easy to use and versatile.
Execution flaws: The first thing you notice is that the kennel is considerably flimsier than the old ones -- thinner plastic, easily distorted out of its proper shape. This is also an assembly problem: because the plastic is so much thinner, the sides of two halves (especially the bottom) tend to be warped out of their proper shape. This makes the assembly process (see above) much, much harder as you have to push the sides into their proper position while sliding the top, so that the guide slots line up correctly. Only two hands, remember? Quality control is poor: my new kennels were missing one of the metal screws (there were 3, should be 4).
In summary, I strongly suggest buying somebody else's kennel.
