Love that the size is small & lightweight enough to easily move around (from outside our bedroom door at night) to the living room during the day. Its also smaller than most of the competitors dimensions so it fits into various spots in our small NYC apartment. The small fits my 10lb 7 mo old mini doxie well w/ room to spare for a blanket and toys. I got the pad to go w/ it, which my dog enjoys pulling out but so far it's held up to her biting and shaking.
However there are a few improvements I'd love to see in V. 2.0:
1) add a carry handle to the top so it's easier to move around when assembled, or add wider "hand shaped" openings at the top/ center of the wide sides for hand grab spots.
2) Improve the latch so it's quieter and sticks less often. My dog now goes in at night by herself and falls asleep, but when I close the door and try to close the latch outside, the "snap" is so loud waking her back up is unavoidable.
3) add a more proper folding handle on the carry points when collapsed. The hand notches are ok, but a proper handle would be much nicer to use.
I have yet to travel with it, but plan to soon since it's so small and lightweight. Hoping it breaks down/ goes up smoothly on our trip!
I bought this for my dog who recently started being anxious at nighttime. Her metal crate was supposed to provide the cave like structure to make her feel secure, but she wasn’t a fan. The pawd is not only aesthetically pleasing, but she loves it. She even spends time in it during the day with her toys.
Bought this beautiful paw pad for travel and it is sooo stylish and my baby loves it!
