Durable, Comfortable Design

A strong, yet lightweight PVC frame maintains the crate’s overall shape without adding unnecessary weight, while beige-colored heavy-duty polyester fabric over the top, bottom, and sides of the crate provide a softer, more forgiving surface to curl up against, compared to a metal or hard-sided crate. Add a dog bed (not included) to the fabric bottom for extra warmth and comfort when placing the crate on a hard floor.

The crate’s rounded corners protect floors and car interiors from unwanted nicks and scratches, and its durable water-resistant fabric can be hand-washed with soap and water and air-dried (as needed).

Window Ventilation

On three sides, the crate provides a black mesh-fabric window in the dog-friendly shape of a bone. The windows allow for important ventilation and give pets a good view of the outside world, plus allow pet parents to peek inside.

Front and Top Doors

The crate’s three-sided front door can be unzipped and the mesh-fabric flap rolled up and secured out of the way to allow your dog to come and go freely. A second three-sided door on top of the crate makes it easy to set your pooch in from above. Fastening straps keep the rolled up doors positioned neatly out of the way. Zip both doors shut to keep your pet securely contained inside.

Portable Convenience

More practical than a wire or hard-sided crate, the lightweight soft-sided crate makes it possible to quickly set up a dog crate wherever you need it. From the kitchen to the office at work or when traveling, the AmazonBasics folding soft dog crate provides easy portability and the convenience of a take-anywhere dog crate. When not in use, the dog crate can be folded flat for easy carrying and compact space-saving storage.

    I love this product! I have a 10-12lb siamese-he comes camping with me. I got the small after returning a larger size-ts super spacious. The small gives him a lot of extra room. Its a safe space for him when I want to feed him-or have him secure when I am preparing food around the fire. It allows him to see things while being confined. I love it. Its gone on 2 trips and it has many more to go.

    This crate didn’t last long for my pup, which was my fault. I brought it along on a weekend when we stayed at my friends, but when we left he was nervous and managed so dig/chew his way out in the hour that we were gone. However, he was still young and working on crate training, so leaving him unsupervised in a new crate probably wasn’t the best idea. It’s great to supervised use and overnight use, but I would not recommend unsupervised use unless your pet is fully comfortable with the crate. It’s easy to put together and travel with, and it’s fairly sturdy. I would totally buy another one at this point (now that my dog is fully crate trained).

    It appears to be well constructed and well designed. I like having the abilityy to open from top or front. Opening the topd makes it easiest to set up and take down. The dog hasn’t damaged it yet.

  4. (verified owner)

    My cats love it !

  5. (verified owner)

    This crate is perfect for sleeping and time away from home. Our 5 month old Boston Terrier uses it for overnight beside our bed, and for car travel. Although he has destroyed a bed inside this crate, he has not damaged the crate itself.

    Zipper not very durable

  7. (verified owner)

    really like this crate, used when we go camping.

  8. (verified owner)

    My 26 pound French Bulldog puppy head butted his way through the stitching on the zipper seam and escaped.

  9. (verified owner)

    great product, easy to use and portable

  10. (verified owner)

    My dog is frightened to travel and this kennel does not rattle and allows air flow but she does not see so is not as skittish.

  11. (verified owner)

    Used twice. Zipper broke. Waste of money.Seller didn’t acknowledge email asking for replacement.

  12. (verified owner)

    i had to return it because it was big for my dog…

  13. (verified owner)

    The only issue I had was I ordered the wrong size and the cost of returning it was too much so triple check the dimensions!

  14. (verified owner)

    Finally, a foldable kennel that will withstand my dog! I have a 65 lb chocolate lab and I bought the 42” kennel so he’d have some extra room. The screens are thick enough that if he scratches at them they don’t just fall apart and it’s sturdy enough to withstand him moving around. Just make sure your pet is in a cool area because it seems like it could get really hot in there.

    I purchased this as a replacement for another collapsible kennel that had a zipper break. The description didn’t detail how this one set up and collapsed so I never imagined it would be a problem. It was.I keep the kennel in the back of my SUV and pop it up as needed for car rides. I can pretty much put it up with one hand and a shoulder. With this one I cannot erect it so fast and easily. I’d have to remove it from the back of the SUV and stand over the top and reach in from the top to put it up. Then put it back into the car once it was put back up. There is one support arm on the left side and one arm on the right side. The tent lifts up then you have to swing each arm accross to the opposite side while holding the entire kennel up. I almost needed to stand inside of it to do all of those moves at the same time. My old kennel could be set up from the front of the kennel by an upside down U shaped support bar that just folded into place to prop the entire kennel up in one movement. Collapsing it after drop off to doggie daycare was a piece of cake. I returned this and replaced it with the exact model I had before. I also noted that the support bars were super tight and sturdy once snapped into place. However, that made me wonder if it would hold up to how I need to use it, collapsing it and settimg it up over and over again…

    I was on the fence ordering this because of the mixed reviews. I am only using it when we travel with our standard poodle. She has already used it over the weekend and we had NO problems. With that being said I could see this not holding up if you have a dog that does not respect space or has issues with being in a kennel. But if you want a lightweight travel kennel this is a great option!

  17. (verified owner)

    Excellent quality and easy to assemble! Great value as well

  18. (verified owner)

    Great product, love the utility. Very easy to fold and carry. My pup loves it.

  19. (verified owner)

    Perfect for the bedroom or take on the go

  20. (verified owner)

    This is a terrible purchase for dogs that have the slightest bit of separation anxiety. 2 of these later my pup has destroyed both within hours of putting her in it. She had gotten her paw stuff in her metal crate so we wanted to try something a little easier on her paws. She ended up just chewing through the fabric..

  21. (verified owner)

    This is very useful. Very easy to setup and taking apart. I got the large one and my dog loves it!

  22. (verified owner)

    My dog lasted approximately 20 minutes in this crate and she ripped out of it. I think a refund is in order.

  23. (verified owner)

    Nice item we even bought another one. Our pup loves it.

  24. (verified owner)

    Only used short time before an outer corner started wearing out. Would be more convenient to have a side door also. Like that the top can be unzipped partially or completely.

  25. (verified owner)

    Would have been the perfect crate for our dog to sleep in, however I can not recommend it. After 8 months the zipper ripped away from the crate fabric. For the number of times we used the zipper this was VERY disappointing. If a more durable fabric would have been used around the area the zippers are sewn I think this problem would not have happened. However, now the crate is totally useless.

  26. (verified owner)

    My 7 month old bordie collie did not last 3 hours in this crate. We bought it for travel. Terrible. Wasted $70

  27. (verified owner)

    It’s got great”laying down” room for my coonhound (52lbs). It’s not as tall in height as her last one, but seems to work just fine.

  28. (verified owner)

    The crate is OK for the price. Will serve my purpose which is for relatively short transportation of my dog. But it you plan on using the crate more extensively, I would suggest spending another $10-15 and get a better crate.

  29. (verified owner)

    We love it for our Catahoula. He’s 96 lbs and has plenty of room.

  30. (verified owner)

    Order placed June 17. Our dog weighs 52 lbs & was in it long enough for me to run to the hardware store. Came home to her greeting me at the door, to my surprise. It claims to be sufficient for big breeds. Obviously it’s not. It’s replacement will be metal.

  31. (verified owner)

    All I did was put it together, then zip up the front to see how easy it’d be. After a few mins, the seams ripped at the bottom portion. Not satisfied, will be returning.

  32. (verified owner)

    Perfect for our 10 lb Yorkie

  33. (verified owner)

    Easy to set up. Sturdy. I used it for my medium sized cat because she hates being smooshed in a tiny carrier. Well, she hates being in any kind of carrier, so I thought this one would be more comfortable since she could stand and sit without bending her head. When she tried to get out by scratching and biting during a car ride, it held steady. I like all the possible flap openings that let me gently put her inside and slowly let her out. Overall a sturdy and reliable carrier.

  34. (verified owner)

    It looks great, its just not for a dog with anxiety. Chewed his way out of it. But i would order it again fir a non chewing dog.

  35. (verified owner)

    My 40 pound dog ripped/scratched a hole in it and ruined the zipper the first day she used it. She is kennel trained and we bought this for a road trip. Not very sturdy.

  36. (verified owner)

    My scottish deerhound pup traveled in this crate from Arizona to California and it worked great. I continue to use it when I take him in the car and will replace it with a larger size as he grows.

  37. (verified owner)

    This is very easy to assemble and transport. Bought this for a recent rescue pup who was very attached to her old kennel from previous home. I sat down in this with her and she loves it! The 42” is very roomy and the zipper windows make the entire thing easily accessible.

  38. (verified owner)

    Just two big

  39. (verified owner)

    No muy buena experiencia llegó con tres agujero tuve que devolverla

  40. (verified owner)

    It looks nice and is light weight but our 1.6 year old Siberian Husky chewed it open and ruined it in less than one hour in spite of having a nice soft bed, dog treats, and chew bone toys…….

  41. (verified owner)

    Easy to assemble.

  42. (verified owner)

    Great product.

  43. (verified owner)

    I use this for my dog when we travel. It folds up in less than a minute, weighs almost nothing, and is (so far) very sturdy. The pup likes it so well that I replaced the old heavy one and keep this one up all the time.

  44. (verified owner)

    … not made for any dog that has claws… teeth.. or the will to live.

  45. (verified owner)

    Love this. Use it in our 5th wheel for our Labrador. He loves it. We love it.

    I would like to say this is a great crate, it’s easy to pack up and go. It’s easy to assemble, but the first time my dog used it, it was ruined. He pawed at the zipper a bit and it broke off. If you have very rowdy pets, this is definitely not for them!

  48. (verified owner)

    unfortunately had to return due to zipper issue. Crate was easy to expand and pack.

  49. (verified owner)

    Great kennel but no pad

  50. (verified owner)

    I liked how easy it was to assemble! Frankly I am not that great at putting things together but this one was a snap! I am also pleased at how sturdy it is used it on my pups first road trip and it held up just fine! Got it delivered the day before we left!
