What Reviewers Are Saying?
This type of dog crate is very handy. Comparing to metal dog crates it is light and easy to transport and handle. It fits well in the backseat of the car, so not worry about that.
The quality and the sturdiness of the material is outstanding and it comes in one of the most neutral colors, which goes with every interior if you care about it.
The ventilation is very good, and the dog can breath in it very comfortable without any issues..
I personally like the coziness and the easiness of the folding and storing it.. It is time saving comparing to folding of metal cages. It easy fits in any corner or just under the table.
This dog crate is not for very big dogs, which weight more than 70 pounds. Big dog can fit in the biggest one (perhaps)depending on the dog breed, but won’t be able easy to stand.
I use this crate only for transport. The dog really can not see well, so if it is more for sleeping or resting, dogs may become anxious when left for long periods of time without seeing .
Tip : Choosing the Right Size:

I would advise to plan how the Petnation port a crate will be used. For smaller dogs, if used for transportation and traveling it should not be a problem to choose the right size.
For more active dogs, always go for bigger size, so they can wiggle a little bit. Do not plan on crating the active dog for long time in this kind of crate. For day carting ( training) choose the wire dog crate.
