Giant Crate 54" x 33" x 42" high
There weren't instructions for putting it together so I had to have a friend help. The crate is really large and I'm really happy with the size. I have a growing Great Dane and it's perfect for him. However, the door to the crate seems to be too close to the floor and drags some.

I use this giant crate to confine an elderly Aussie shepherd mix who is sometimes incontinent. I wanted her to have a really roomy, comfortable crate for overnight. I have occasionally used it to hold my 100lb Rottweiler as well. It's been great for both purposes. Like any lightweight wire crate, it is not designed to hold an agitated or panicked animal, so the criticism in the previous review seems a little unfair. For ordinary purposes, this crate is completely adequate. I will say that the "easy assembly" claim is overstated. The pieces are very large and cumbersome, and even though I managed to assemble it by myself, the job really would have gone better with two people. Overall, though, I'm happy with both quality and price.

Large and sturdy
Product was not overpacked very well so tray was bent up. Size indicated is outside not inside dimensions so you lose about and inch all the way around. Instructions are virtually non-existent, but we have a large one for our really big dog so it wasn't very hard to figure out. The door DOES drag the floor, even on tile. You have to use a little pull-up pressure on the door so it won't drag. If you want a real quality product, it will cost you about $100 more. For what we need it for it works, but if you are a stickler for perfection maybe this one isn't for you. Also the tray is very loud, unlike the plastic ones that are quieter. Hope this helps.

I ordered this crate, because it was advertised to have 5 guage wire, and be a sturdy crate. I had to take it to a welding shop, to reinforce the front, under the door, to contain a 50 lb. Collie female, who is afraid of thunderstorms. The only thing she hasn't been able to do, is scratch through the metal floor pan. Heavy duty crates, should be better constructed.
