I bought the Large. The measurements on amazon were accurate: 26.2 x 18.6 x 16.5, but the dog sizing is off or misleading. Note that the measurements are all exterior measurements, including every last speck of plastic protruding outward, so the interior space is reduced.
Amazon says it's for dogs up to 15" tall. Every crate I've seen uses the shoulder height so that's what I assumed it meant, and that's the normal way to measure a dog. On the actual crate label it has a diagram showing a dog being measured at the shoulder and it gives 12" measurement. It gives dog length as 21" from tip of snout to back heel.
I think this will be OK for my dog because it's for in the car and I want her to lie down in it while we're driving. The interior is about the same size as a soft-sided kennel (Firstrax Port-A-Crate E2 Indoor/Outdoor Pet Home, 24-Inch ) we use as a voluntary den at home so I know she can walk in and turn around. (The shape of the Firstrax gives a full-size floor that takes a 24 by 18 crate pad--the Petmate loses quite a lot of floor space, mostly in width but even in length.) It will not be conducive to sitting upright or standing (my dog is about 14" at the shoulder).
(I set it up in my living room and secured the door in an opened position and my dog is now napping in there! A good sign.)
I found it somewhat difficult to assemble. It was hard guiding the door posts into the little holes while simultaneously lowering the top into place. Mine did not want to sit right but it finally did. Then it was quite hard to secure the plastic latches. It would be very easy to think one was latched when it was not. I would not dream of just casually dismantling this thing and I believe its lifespan would be seriously reduced if I did that regularly.
One of my plastic clasp/latches was all the way off the crate and it was hard to reseat it. I broke the little storage compartment on the top of the carrier the first time I tried it out. It sort of stuck part way open and as I applied just a little pressure, one end of the hinge broke and went flying.
Mine came with no directions; they can be found online. I have an email in to petmate about the warranty since I have nothing in writing. Their website and the online instruction sheet say it has a 5 year warranty.
The seat belt slot looks like a joke and there are no instructions about how to use it. It appears that the kennel would have to sit with the door facing forward to somehow insert the seat belt in the slot. I have some alternate ideas about how to secure it in the car.
For the money, it's not bad. Don't try to use it for a dog who will try to escape. I think they could easily chew their way out or tease at the seat belt slot and enlarge it. It's nice and light so it will be easy for me to remove it from my car when not needed. I would NEVER carry this crate while an animal was in it--I can't speak for the smaller size crates, but certainly don't think you can haul a 20 lb. animal around by the crate handle.
It is made in USA.
These are a great kennels, sturdy and just slightly roomier than the "medium" size. They are easy to assemble and the doors operate and snap into place firmly. Perfect for my small dogs. The price was much more reasonable than others I'd seen, too.
