My 1 year old loves this space. I don't even close the door. At night she goes to bed and in the morning she will wake up come out and snuggle with me while I wake up. It's so convenient for my cousin who dog sits too. My dog was already crate trained when I introduced this as a replacement for her soft crate that wasn't getting ventilation. This design is open and air flow is great for any living creature. We love it. Hope it reduces in price so more people can buy this for their pets.
We originally ordered the medium but it was too big for our Frenchie. Both are great products but I wish the small door locked like the medium. The small door is kind of rinky dinky with the rod & difficult to lock closed. I wish the pad also was little nicer and had an option as a zipper to wash. Note if your potty training flip the pawd upside down where the roof is the bottom. It’s easy to clean when there are accidents
The size and appearance are both wonderful. I love the convenience of the door, which almost disappears when open. It is a bit disappointing there is no incorporated handle on this model. That was a big selling point. The made to fit pads are well made. I purchased two, after realizing how thin there are. So, I would have liked the pads to be thicker, but two of them create a nice space for our dog. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.
The only thing keeping me from giving the KindTail crate 5 stars is the fact that the latches for the door are too loud when you close them. The “snap” sound alarms my puppy every time. Not sure if anything can be done to make this mechanism quieter but that’s my only feedback related to improvements.
