I love this crate! It was cheaper than the "basic" petmate veri kennel when I bought it. I prefer this one because in addition to the side vents, it has vents in the back. I use the crate for my dog to sleep in and for travel in the car, and I like being able to see her through the back vents. This crate is also just a lot nicer looking than the basic kennel.
I am so happy we found this crate. My dog has chewed her last one, and this looks so much more durable. Very affordable. I thought it was take a while for her to go in, since she is very picky, but she went right in.
