playpen for small pets, comfort zone for larger
I have used the small version of this crate as my cat carrier for years and have recommended it to countless others. My cat LOVES her small Petnation crate. It is her house, her bed, her favorite hangout spot. A few years back, my boyfriend bought both the small and extra large versions for his cat; since he RVs, it's nice to have a larger enclosure for the cat so she can go out a little at RV parks. She loves it, too. Recently, I adopted an older dog with some bladder issues, mostly stress-related from being in the shelter. I ordered the extra large for her in case I need to crate her if the bladder issues do not resolve and aren't fully addressed with diapers when we travel. My cat has already adopted it as a "vacation home", and one of my other dogs loves hanging out in it as well. The intended resident only goes in when I go in with her, but she does not fear it. So we're off to a great start. The construction of these crates is excellent. They are very durable. NOT intended for animals with extreme anxiety or for aggressive animals, mind you. These crates are perfect for calm animals and for travel; my cat rides in hers across the continental US several times each year. They fold flat and take up no space at all. The mesh on the "windows" and front zipper flap is as advertised, extra strong. Zippers are solid and are also easily secured shut using a clip or small padlock. The funky new plastic smell dissipates quickly. Handles on the small model are perfectly balanced for carrying. And even though I'm not a Walmart shopper, Walmart is the only place to order these crates because they cost at least double everywhere else. Excellent product, and excellent value for the price.

No Carrying Handles!
I bought this 24 inch crate to carry my 2 cats in the car when moving. In the photo when I ordered it showed carrying hands to carry the crate open w/the cats in. I was sadly dissapointed when it arrived with no carrying handles! The only 'handle' it had was the one to use when the crate was folded. Doesn't do me much good when I have to carry my cats in the crate from the car to the motel.

Perfect for a fat cat :)

My cat is 16 inches long and weighs 18 lbs, she loves this! I was worried it would be to small for her or she would fall out the bottom but when i got it and put her in she fit fine! I put her favorite blanket in the bottom of it for her to feel extra safe and not to feel her paws threw the bottom of it! :)

Multipurpose carrier.

I got this carrier to transport my cat for vaccines. It looked more secure and comfortable than the others. The mission was a success and Tigger chose it for his bed. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Great Value

I, like you, read many reviews before purchasing a soft sided crate. I am well aware that they are not as indestructible as either a wire crate, or an airline style crate, and I didn't want to waste my money for something that would give me nothing in return. I show dogs (Vizslas) and wanted to be able to have something portable and convenient for my already crate trained dogs. This delivers to my expectations. The XL size is quite roomy and comfortable, with plenty of space for them to stand up and turn around. They are also able to lay down in their favorite positions. It is extremely easy to set up and take down; I think it took less than 5 minutes to set up the first time, without looking at the instructions. I would never use the Petnation Dog Port-A-Crate to attempt crate training, that would be a futile effort as it could easily be torn to shreds, but if your dog is crate trained and you want a safe haven within the home, or hotel/motel, it should meet the needs of both you and your dog. I recommend this product.

Terrific for travelers with pets

Verified purchase

Our order arrived to the site for pick up within the time window we were given. We purchased model #E32 (32" L x 23" W x 23" H) and it is the perfect size for our 50# lab mix. There is plenty of room for her to stand up, turn around and sleep in. The material appears to be sturdy and has a nice neutral color. The one we got has very little odor, unlike those mentioned in previous reviews. Set up and tear down was a piece of cake. Love the "skylight" feature. It will be great to take on road trips. Our lab mix was curious with her new sanctuary and went into it without hesitation since she is already crate trained. She loved it!! This product is a great addition to the hard plastic [airline approved] crate we use at home. We highly recommend this!

2. Per the instructions that come in the package, this is not recommended for animals that are prone to chewing or digging their way out of containers. It's pretty sturdy and well-built, but if he really wants to get out, he will. If he's fairly docile and happy to have a warm, quiet place to sleep, he'll most likely be fine.

7. Maybe if he did not chew a lot. This would be destroyed very quickly by any dog that likes to chew because it's fabric and soft-sided, with some mesh pieces, not metal or plastic.

8. It is a very good night crate. My pup is happy to be in it. He came from Arizona to Northern Nevada and the canvas sides help him to stay warm. He has plenty of room to turn around and stretch out, but not to his full length. He uses it with no hesitation even when he needs a nap in the daytime. He is a 9lb, 5mo old Russell terrier.

1. No. It does not bend in that manner. It only folds up into a large flatter type piece for storage but it cannot be wadded up and put in a washer like a piece of fabric.

5. There are no handles, but the top has a zippered opening big enough to put a 15 lb dog through it. The bottom is only "cloth" so there would be no support.

8. According to the manufacturer, Petnation, the handles only come on the E16 and E20 which is small. All others medium and large have no handles as it would not be strong enough to hold the animal.
