We are on our second week of using the crate regularly, I had to re-crate train her because we hadn’t been using crates for a few years since she was able to break out of the standard wire crate.
We have been through the ringer with solutions for her anxiety, from behaviorists to medication - we’ve tried it all. With no other choice I was leaving my dog out while I was at work - and spending significant amounts of time cleaning up what she destroyed while I was gone.
Since using the Impact High Anxiety Crate, I have no much peace. In addition to my home staying as clean as it was when I left for work, which feels like a vacation now. We have gone from having 3-4 accidents a day, to ONE in the last two weeks. I’m not sure if having to hold her bladder during the day in her crate, had triggered her to start holding it again at night ? Regardless, I am a very happy customer.
As far as durability, we joke that this looks like the velociraptor cage from Jurassic Park. I will attest to my dogs ability to escape from a locked wife crate without unlocking it, and there is no way she could get out of this crate. She scratched at it a little at the beginning and it has some scrape marks on the inside front, but has since given up.
What peace of mind to know my dog is safe and my house isn’t getting destroyed. I feel like I can enjoy my dog again, without her being a constant source of stress in my life. Thank you !
