Fasteners that connect to the bolt are plastic, NOT airline approved
Airlines require solid metal bolt which this kennel has. The fasteners that connect to the bolt are plastic, NOT airline approved. Went to a 24 hour Walmart at 1AM for wing nuts which they do NOT stock. Purchased metal nuts to fit the bolts. Too much of the bolt was showing, put the plastic fastener over top of the nut onto the bolt and the airline accepted the kennel. The kennel is extremely light weight, very thin construction suitable for a very young puppy or kitten weighting less than 10 pounds. A parrot could eat right through the sides within minutes.

Best Crate!
We have been using this crates for years for our terriers. They are the best! Last well, easy to clean and the dogs love them!

Use it all the time!
Over the years I have purchased this crate many times. I show Min Pins and this is the perfect sized crate for most of them. They sleep in the crate at night, I use it to take them to the dog shows with, and I use it to ship them to other breeders for breeding etc. I probably have 7 or 8 of these! I got a great price on this with 1800petsupplies and it even arrived earlier than I expected!

Sturdy crate
Compare to some crates on the market, this crate is made of better quality material. The ventilation are covered with metal grilles which prevent the dog from chewing.Most other sites are selling around $45 to $50 for this product. With a 30% discount at petsupplies, it's really worth it

Flimsier than last Varikennel
The plastic in this Varikennel is MUCH thinner than a 3-year-old model. Since this is a small crate, it probably doesn't matter, but I would be reluctant to purchase one for a larger dog.

As always, a reliable and safe choice for dogs "on the go".
My first one is over twenty years old, and still in great shape!

looked bigger in picture not the right size returned it!

Sturdy
I bought the giant size for my new retired racing greyhound. Perfect! It's just the right height (these dogs may not weigh much but they are tall) and I often find my older greyhound napping in it. I bought my first Vari-Kennel at a yard sale in the early "80's for my cat. It's stil being used today even though it has a few scratches from a bad car wreck. Without this sturdy crate, I doubt my cat would have survived a triple rollover. If you want safety first, buy this brand of crate.

to keep german shepherd safe during heat cycle
Charlotte K on Jul 28, 2017
this is a good airline crate that comes with correct hardware, fits my breed of dog, is sturdy and safe for the dog , and ships at the small crate fee.

A person with a parrot said this doesn't have holes on the back the bird can chew through during Shipping I pray they are right as I just went to every pet store in two counties trying to find this in small and they only carry L & XL with wire.

Vari Kennel Classic is THE BEST. It still has the sturdier construction of the original design. . .unlike the newer Vari Kennel Ultra, which is more flimsy, IMHO. I wish they still made the Vari Kennel Deluxe. . .now those are THE BOMB! They are almost as heavy as a bomb, too, but unless you carry them around every day, who cares? They last virtually forever.
Lisa S on Sep 21, 2016
Great price when on sale but be careful, the quality is starting to suffer on the smaller crates. I just had a handle break while carrying a 14lb dog.
Lisa S on Sep 13, 2016
My parrot chews through the carriers with the plastic holes and this one has metal grids that are not vulnerable to strong beaks.

Price. Use when I show dogs
Marlene P on Jun 4, 2016
I like the height of this crate. Most crates are shorter and longer, so the animal is hunched over if they stand up unless you buy the next size larger.
Rebecca K on May 25, 2015
It is good products with reasonable price.
Runchana L on May 18, 2015
This is the very sturdiest kennel for traveling. All of my dogs travel in my car ONLY in Vari-Kennels as they are the absolute safest in the case of an accident.
Adam M on Sep 16, 2014
This is the perfect size carrier for a cat or small dog. There is ample height for the animal to stand up in but it isn't so wide that makes it too bulky to carry or place in your car. I have purchased about 20 of these all together over the years!
Jane L on Aug 1, 2014
Most reasonable price on this item. The Vari-kennels are used because they have metal bars that can't be chewed through.
Mary Ellen L on Oct 28, 2013
Travel and bed time.

Is this crate approved for air travel?
Martha D on Nov 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Im reallly not sure. Sorry. I bought this crate for my English Mastiff puppy. I can tell you that it is a GREAT product. The construction is excellent. Our Puppy now weighs 200 lbs. at 16 months and he still has rom to relax in his den. I'm very, very pleased with this product and highly recommend it!
Does it comes with handle?
RC W on May 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have bought the small and intermediate size crates and both come with sturdy handles but I doubt that the larger sizes have handles since it would be too heavy to pick up that way
Dog plastic kennel Dimension is 28x20x19.2. What is the weight ?
A shopper on Mar 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am sorry but I cannot provide that. The kennels we offer for this model are not of that size and I would only be guessing if I tried to figure out the weight of a kennel that is 28 X 20 X 19.2
Is the bottom smooth or is molding like the top pushed through the bottom?
A shopper on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not sure on the giant size, but on the small ones it's smooth. I have older thicker ones that are not smooth. They have the same pattern as on the top which cannot be comfortable for the dog to lie on. I have to put a thick pad or double the padding for them. The older ones came from other dog breeders. All the ones I have ever bought, quite a few, have been smooth. But I always buy the small.
IS THIS AVAILABLE IN GIANT SIZE?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: In this particular model, we do not. We do have giant travel kennels available, for instance: https://www.petsupplies.com/item/petmate-sky-kennel-pet-carrier/101554/
