Amazing customer service

Purchased a kennel but it wasn’t suitable after building. They have been super helpful in regards to organising it to be returned. They have even organised a courier to pick it up. Sad that the kennel wasn’t suitable but had the best customer service ever!! Thank you!

Great product

Very pleased with this crate. Easy to assemble and my dog loves it.
