Was very impressed with how much Pet Travel Store prepared me for flying my pet through Delta Cargo. With all of the regulations about metal hardware, pet dishes, paperwork, etc., this website and this crate in particular made it so easy. It was so simple to add metal hardware and a document pouch onto my order, and the dishes came with it automatically. It was great construction and very simple to put together. It was a very stressful move, and finding this website and this crate made it so much easier. My kitty made it easily and safely from Michigan to Texas! Would absolutely recommend this to anyone I knew flying an animal. Told everyone at my vet about . Thank you!
Great Cargo Carrier

Nice product. Met all expectations. Just the perfect size for a cat or small dog.
Excellent crate at a very good price

Our puppy has taken to this crate immediately and it is very strong indeed. It is also very good value at the price -- which was important as our dog will outgrow it after a few more months. So I recommend it highly, especially with the upgraded metal bolts.
I would also note the excellent, instant service I got hen I had to get back to them about a related item, which was resolved instantly and to my full satisfaction.
