This is the only actual kennel in this list, though it is an exceptionally great deal for the price. The kennel is easy to set up with only the use of some standard hand tools. It can be done by one person but it is recommended that you have at least two people setting it up.
The kennel is a 10FT by 10FT square and it is 6FT high. This gives even larger dogs plenty of room to run around a little in a safe environment. It is made of a rust-resistant chain link material, which means it will last for ages even in bad weather.
While this kennel does not come with a canopy one can be purchased separately – like the Weatherguard mentioned above – making a complete, all-weather place to play. In most reviews buying the canopy with the kennel is a great option. (Especially in warmer climates!)
However, the kennel itself may not stand up to strong winds since it is not anchored to the ground in any way. If you put the canopy on and it’s a particularly windy day (say 15-20MPH winds) there is a risk the whole kennel will catch air.
On days like that, you may want to keep your dog inside, so there is no risk they escape if this were to happen. Overall, since some people seemed to have trouble with the setup, costumes are not as happy with this product.
For $267.59 this is an excellent option for a kennel. The set-up is meant to be simple and quick and the best feature is probably the locking mechanism that is “puppy proof”. There is also a hole for a padlock in case you have an escape artist on your hands!
Personally, I would choose the PetSafe Box Kennel if I were looking for a quick and simple fix. I think it’s especially cool since it can be moved easily from one place to another. I could have it set up and home and pack it up when my family has a cook-out at my parents.
If you’re looking for a long-term solution the PetSafe Box Kennel would also be a great option – however, if it were meant to be a long-term solution I would definitely consider getting the canopy to go with it.
