Great crate, great price!
Having to ship a puppy international, I found this crate to make the procedure very easy. The crate is already airline approved for international travel and comes with everything you need to fly your dog cargo. The plastic is sturdier than the normal Vari-Kennel and the door is also more substantial. I liked these so much I just ordered 2 more for my terriers here at home when we travel to shows.

Great Dog Crate
Heading overseas and received our large sized crate in great time! Dog seems okay exploring it, and plenty roomy for his size. Appears to be designed for international travel and comfort. Helpful info inclosed.

For Flying Cats
I bought 2 of the SkyKennel #200 to fly my cats from California to North Carolina. The crates claimed to come with everything I would need to pass airline requirements. The airlines require metal fasteners; these came with plastic wing nuts. Also, the handle is not the best. As I said, I shipped cats: 17lbs and 14lbs respectively. The crate I shipped my 14lb cat in made it all the way through in perfect condition. The crate I shipped my 17lb cat in made it from California to North Carolina fine but the handle ripped out as the airline attendant was handing me the crate. The flight schedule for the cats had one stop-over. So, all told the crates with cats inside were moved at most 10 times before the handle ripped out of the top of the crate. Overall, I think the crates were great. I would just note that shipping animals over 14lbs might cause the handle to come off after a few moves when loaded.

I foster for a rescue group and this has been the best crate I have ever used. I have dealt with the worst cases of seperation anxiety and this is the only crate that has been able to withstand a 70lb crazy dog.

Excellent Shipping Kennel
I purchased three of the large kennels for shipping six month old greyhounds. They came quickly and with everything needed to ship. They come equiped with four holes molded into the plastic around the doors to attach zip ties for further reinforcement of the door. The door on the large through XXlarge have a very good locking latch system. Although many brands of kennels claim to be airline approved most airlines will not accept a kennel with a plastic latch system used to assemble top and bottom kennels. Sky kennels come with the proper metal bolt attachments. They are easily cracked if dropped however, so care should be taken until they are assembled.

petmate kennel carrier
use one shown, medium size --as bird carrier and night cage (he ate the plastic window on the one he came home in); use it to take cats and rat terriers to vet; it also works as a holders while cleaning ferret cage, so as you can tell it is very handy and cleans easily used daily.

Sky Kennel-Medium Size #200
Just received the PetMate Sky Kennel, Medium Size (#200) and it is more than I hoped for. First, it is very roomy (it's for a large cat) and very well built; nice and sturdy. When closed the front door is quite secure. However, the unit I received does NOT match the picture that they show above! Actually, it looks nicer. The front door is more rounded than shown.

This kennel is to be used to "ship" my cat by airplane to the West Coast. The Sky Kennels are approved by Airlines for this purpose. Many kennels are not airline-approved, and they will not ship your pet if you try to use them! There is a BIG difference between "Shipping as Cargo" and bringing your pet on the plane with you! Be Aware!

I could not find a better price for the same or equivalent unit ANYWHERE Online. In fact, many places wanted much, much more. One place wanted almost $100, with S/H and Freight Charges!! Spend a few dollars more, and you'll get free shipping! ($49). If you need a top-quality, well built kennel/cage for your pet at a great price, check it out. (I'd also recommend "Dry Fur" padding if your pet will be inside for a long period of time.)

Not as Pictured
I have one of the old Pet Mate Kennels (the one in the photo) and that is not what you will receive. The new ones have an arched door, and simply DO NOT latch properly without a good deal of effort. It is easy for an excited dog to put both paws on the door and get out if both pins are not in the super-tiny and off center holes.

door/ faulty???????????
The metal door on the "new shape" vari kennel is terrible and it bent( post that goes in to the plastic) so the dog can just push it and walk out???????
Glad she was at home and not on a plane???????????
