This is the second 10x10x6 kennel I have purchased. The other came from a national farm supply store and is made in the USA. The price was comparable to the other I purchased. In comparison, the Lucky Dog version is not near as beefy. The pipe used for the framing of the panels is a smaller diameter and has thinner walls. The Lucky Dog kennel pipe is maybe 1" in diameter while the other is close to 2". Not evident by the pictures, the panels are not 10 x 6 like my other kennel, they are 5 x 6. Not a huge deal but the clamps don't secure tight enough to keep a large dog from pushing them out in the centers. I remedied this by drilling 2 1" holes in some 2x6 blocks and anchoring them to the 2x6 elevated pad the kennel sits on. Had I not installed the a top that uses corrugated tin with treated 2x4s running across the top it would have been even more flimsy. Lastly, the coating on mine was already chipped upon receiving, several of the clamps had vibrated off but luckily were still in the shrink wrap, although I had to replace some lost washers and nuts. The door latch is of poor quality and with a big dog it would be quite easy for them to jump against the latch causing it to open, also there is no hole to put a snap or lock through to keep the dog from accidentally opening the latch. With the modifications that I did, the kennel is sufficient, but I wish that I had gone with the same model as before. Only reason for going this route this time around was Walmart accepts Paypal which allowed me to do the 6 months interest free financing. As for the service of Walmart, they were great. I had it shipped to the store. Once I checked in, I pulled around back and several employees helped me load it on to the trailer. I will try and post some pictures of the finished project if this lets me edit the review.
