Rated 5 out of 5 by Robin Hill Terriers Great crate, great price!
Having to ship a puppy international, I found this crate to make the procedure very easy. The crate is already airline approved for international travel and comes with everything you need to fly your dog cargo. The plastic is sturdier than the normal Vari-Kennel and the door is also more substantial. I liked these so much I just ordered 2 more for my terriers here at home when we travel to shows.

Heading overseas and received our large sized crate in great time! Dog seems okay exploring it, and plenty roomy for his size. Appears to be designed for international travel and comfort. Helpful info inclosed.

I bought 2 of the SkyKennel #200 to fly my cats from California to North Carolina. The crates claimed to come with everything I would need to pass airline requirements. The airlines require metal fasteners; these came with plastic wing nuts. Also, the handle is not the best. As I said, I shipped cats: 17lbs and 14lbs respectively. The crate I shipped my 14lb cat in made it all the way through in perfect condition. The crate I shipped my 17lb cat in made it from California to North Carolina fine but the handle ripped out as the airline attendant was handing me the crate. The flight schedule for the cats had one stop-over. So, all told the crates with cats inside were moved at most 10 times before the handle ripped out of the top of the crate. Overall, I think the crates were great. I would just note that shipping animals over 14lbs might cause the handle to come off after a few moves when loaded.

I foster for a rescue group and this has been the best crate I have ever used. I have dealt with the worst cases of seperation anxiety and this is the only crate that has been able to withstand a 70lb crazy dog.

I purchased three of the large kennels for shipping six month old greyhounds. They came quickly and with everything needed to ship. They come equiped with four holes molded into the plastic around the doors to attach zip ties for further reinforcement of the door. The door on the large through XXlarge have a very good locking latch system. Although many brands of kennels claim to be airline approved most airlines will not accept a kennel with a plastic latch system used to assemble top and bottom kennels. Sky kennels come with the proper metal bolt attachments. They are easily cracked if dropped however, so care should be taken until they are assembled.

use one shown, medium size --as bird carrier and night cage (he ate the plastic window on the one he came home in); use it to take cats and rat terriers to vet; it also works as a holders while cleaning ferret cage, so as you can tell it is very handy and cleans easily used daily.
