XXL Double Dog Twin Door Extra Large Two Pet Kennel Wooden House

Very pleased with purchase

Purchased this for a boisterous puppy. Very pleased with strength, quality and ease of set up. Keeps Puppy safe when we aren’t at home.
Quick delivery. Happy with our experience.

Catio

Bought this with another 5 extra panels to make a spacious catio for my feline friend. Not perfect workmanship on the panels, but it does the job.

Exactly what we needed

We ordered this for our 4 month old Golden Retriever puppy to have a larger safe space in the house for when we need to contain him or settle him down.

This is perfect - it is very strong and durable (and was easy to assemble).
