The crate is excellent. It gives us peace of mind that when we go out he is safe in his crate.We are very happy with his new crate.
I have 3 boxers right now. I’ve always had at least one boxer for the past 16 years but the newest one, who is now 11 months old, is an escape artist. He could get out of the metal wire crate and even when he wasn’t escaping it he would chew, bend and break off the wires. I was told by other boxer owners how great these crates are so decided to go for it. This is the best crate ever! No more chewing on the crate or escaping. I actually think he even likes it better. It seems more comfortable and I think he feels more secure in it. I plan on purchasing a second one to replace another wire crate.
I am so happy with our crate. It’s the perfect size for our German Shepherd and sturdy enough for my husband to throw in his truck and take to job sites. I am the most impressed with Impact Crates customer service. I ordered the incorrect crate the first time and my husband had to call to get things sorted out. The call took less than 5 minutes and even my husband commented on how easy it was working with them (he is notoriously hard to please.) I just wish they would have free shipping to Alaska!
Crate was easy to assemble. It looks great and has already saved me the heartache of my Mal pup escaping! I called Impact twice with a few questions and the customer service was very personable and answered my questions very quickly.
Excellent product that really stands out from the competition. Very well made and worth the higher cost.
Perfect accessory for the crate! Easy to clean and fits like a glove. Would highly recommend this when purchasing any of the crates
Arrived on time and in perfect shape! Airline approved door guard is easy to assemble. I just wish I had longer arms to install the side rails. : )
We purchased the 40" wide and tall collapsible crate for our 55lb pit bull mix. Adding a LED strip brightens up the crate. It can stow away in a closet when we need more room and can be easily loaded up in the trunk of a mid sized sedan. It's well engineered, has a solid build and has a decent paint job. This is certainly not an impulse buy at >$1k, make sure you research your requirements before purchasing it. You will not be dissapointed.
The new crate is the perfect size for our Cane Corso. Justin was extremely patient and helpful in our selection process! Will definitely get another Impact Dog Crate for our next dog!
I was skeptical of spending so much on a kennel but it's worth it! My anxious dog used to go into a wire kennel while alone and I would come home to see his nose and paw pads scraped from scratching against the wire bars despite training for anxiety. The most frustrating part was that he would urinate through the wire bars onto the floor outside his kennel!
The high anxiety crate is perfect! No more nose and paw pad scratches and no more pee on the floor! The holes on the sides of the crate are small and high enough that he can't urinate outside the crate.
Thank you for designing a kennel to keep anxious dogs safe!
We have a German Shepherd husky with extreme separation anxiety he has destroyed every crate we have gotten him and our home in the process in desperation we turned to taking him to daycare but that just isn’t practical every time we need to leave the house we where cautious trying another crate but we decided to order the high anxiety crate and it is amazing our dog has been unable to escape or injure himself He attempted to scratch the first few days but now is amazing in his crate and we can leave the home with ease!
Our 7 year old staffy has severe separation anxiety and has destroyed countless plastic and metal crates. This crate is like nothing before, not only does it keep him from getting out but he is no longer hurting himself to try and get out. I would highly recommend this product.
Our crates couldn’t get here soon enough but it now was well worth the wait.
We bought a stationary 20” for the little terrier and a 34” collapsable for the cattle dog.
And the fans
And the Berber pads
And... well, you know.
Regardless i can’t wait to get to the field with these. There are precise, durable and well made. these are no fool around units.
Here is a photo of the cattle dog crammed into the 20”..... figures.
Let me first say that I wasn’t going to do a review but after the 15th email (Hyperbole) asking me to do so I guess I will. Let me first say this is a top of the line solid built piece of art. That being said I regretted my purchase the minute it arrived. The realization that I had spent $900 on a crate for my dog was not loss on me. This was done however of my own free will. Did I need a $900 crate? Absolutely not. But I wanted one. So kudos to you on the marketing.
All in all this is a fantastic crate but don’t do this on an impulse as I did. Make sure that it truly is something you want/need.
5 Stars though. Really top notch
I know it’s hard to believe but our boxer hated being crated... when we got our new crate from you... it was amazing... he goes into the crate by himself... it’s padded and dark and he feels safe... no crying no whining... WORTH EVERY PENNY! You won’t be disappointed! We love you impact crates!!
Impact crates are the best. Our dogs love them and we have peace of mind knowing each of them are safe when we are not home with them. The crates are both sturdy and beautiful and well worth the expense.
I live overseas for work and travel frequently. When I go on long vacations back to the US I always want to bring my dog, Shwari (a cardigan welsh corgi) with me, but dealing with his airline crate in a small rental car can be a nightmare. I also want the best security possible for him while traveling. I've actually gone through many crates, as the plastic ones tend to degrade over time, especially living in the tropics means the metal door begins to rust right away. Impact was recommended by my vet and friends who show their dogs, and so even though it was pricy I began to look into them. I ended up having to go with the 40" crate, because Shwari is loooooong! As you can see in the picture he looks dwarfed by the big crate, but when he lies down you can tell this is the right size crate! I would love an option of a collapsible crate that is long and low for corgis, bassets and other dwarf breeds. One thing I wish is that I had purchased a fun color, but unfortunately I didn't have a lot of time when I ordered and there was a bit more wait for a color. I guess because this crate will last me a very long time, in the long run it is good that it is a neutral color!
I recently flew with Shwari from Africa back to the US in his crate - this was our first time using it to fly. It was awesome! I flew Qatar Airways, who can be very picky about crates (for good reason, they always want to make sure animals are safe and comfortable, I've heard them refuse to fly pets whose crates are too small), and there was no issue with the crate being accepted (I did have it assembled, with the dog inside, before I got to the airport, so there was never a question about it being "collapsible"). I had the airline brackets and the door covers assembled. For water I attached a funnel and tube to the outside of the crate, and a small bucket attached inside, which worked really well. The air holes made it easy to position and secure the bucket and food tray. Shwari made it through the flight like the rockstar he is, and the crate looks pristine! Once stateside it was a matter of minutes to collapse the crate for easy storage or transportation.
I'm sure this will last me for a long time, but if I decide to get a second dog, I will certainly buy another Collapsible Impact Crate for them!
