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.
The durable plastic shell comes with heavy-duty, easy to assemble hardware. Each kennel features an easy-open squeeze latch, metal side vents to promote healthy air flow and an interior floor moat to keep your pet dry. Convenient tie-down strap holes allow you to zip-tie the kennel together for added security during airline travel. The Ultra Vari Kennel® is eco-friendly and meets most airline requirements. Be sure to check with your airline well in advance of your travels to learn about their individual requirements.

Crate I tried a thunder shirt, essential oils, dog separation anxiety music on the iPad and was about to give up and take him to the vet to be out on anxiety meds. I ended up buying this crate since he completely destroyed the other one. I set it up in the living room and put a dog bed in it (that I thought he would destroy, but he didn't). He hasn't been able to escape or hurt himself and actually lays down in the crate. I could tell over the last few weeks that he is getting used to his crate and enjoying it. The past few days he has gone in the crate and just laid down while we were home. This is a HUGE step for him. I can tell he feels safe in this crate and I am SO SO SO grateful that this crate is helping my dog. This crate is totally worth the money! My dog is pretty tall and about 70 pounds and fits snug in here. Overall very happy with this purchase!
In the past many of my friends have used the large folding metal crates and as a result, many have also had their dogs become injured as the cheaper models allowed the dog to force themselves out whenever one of the two latches were not secure. This crate locks in place with two spring loaded points that rest securely in place. The plastic walls (with functional windows) prevent your dog from "bringing in objects" from the sides so this kennel can be placed up against, or near curtains etc. This can also be used as a portable safe kennel.
Please do yourself a favor, spend a little bit more, and get either this crate or an equivalent quality crate. There is nothing worse than having to take your higher drive large breed pet to the animal hospital with a spinal injury resulting from a failed escape (speaking from experience). Can you honestly put a price on your pets safety? This crate provides that plus my baby loves it!
1 - length and width are just about 6 inches smaller than I expected because the dimensions listed are for the outside. I never thought the actual space inside would be 6 inches smaller. That made the size choice incorrect for me, since the dog has no room compared to what I had planned on.
2 - quality is flimsy- the plastic is very light weight and the floor has ripples as it is so thin.
3 - these kennels are made to stack one on top of another. The floor has various contours beneath to accomplish that. It also is not a flat, smooth floor as I have on my other kennel- instead, the floor is rough, with rough spots here and there, and a mote that goes around the inside which would really only function as a way to make the floor uncomfortable to lay on. The mote doesn't really look functional as such as it is too shallow and wide for that.
Based on this, not only do I have to return this item, but I need to go back to the drawing board and find one in person where I can see the quality before buying. Perhaps these contentions aren't deal breakers for you, and if that's the case, at least you know what you're getting ahead of time. I did not realize those points of interest until after the product arrived.
"Thank you for your inquiry regarding traveling. The Crate or kennels that we manufacture do come with the hardware. While our products are designed to meet USDA guidelines for pet travel, each airline can then have its own specifications as to what styles they will accept.
In recent years, we have seen some of the airlines request apparatuses be all metal. However, our units which secure with metal screws and plastic wingnuts, which contain metal inside are currently purchased by many of the major airlines. Here are a few of the airlines which currently purchase kennels from us.
Alaska, American, Delta, and United are currently receiving the metal screw and plastic wingnut. Should the airline your travel with require something with an "all metal" design then you can contact www.PetTravelStore.com at 877-241-0184 for this type of connector.
As aprecaution, we always recommend that you check with your airline well in advance of your travels to learn about their individual requirements since each airline can have their own specifications which we would not be aware of"
