Our 8 month old German Shepard pup destroyed the first wire cage we bought. Saw an add for Impact Dog Crates and man am I glad we did. She hasn’t been able to chew or do any damage to the Stationary Crate we bought. We’ve even caught her in there just napping from time to time. Would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone looking for a secure, sturdy well built crate.
I’ll be honest and say I was skeptical that our dog would love this crate. He was unsure when I first took it out but once I put his blanket and toys in there and fed him a few pieces of food in it, he was going in it on his own. He loves his new crate! And the best part is that I don’t need a crate cover, which he was chewing, and I could get rid of his blanket he was also chewing because we bought the pad that goes with it. We love our impact dog crate.
I have several Impact crates. I wanted a side door one for my older dog in the bedroom. Not having a side door before, I wasn't sure that I would like it, but it works out perfectly. Now I'm going to glam it up as I bought the gray.
I researched dog crates for several years before deciding on the Impact Crate and finally ordering them. I LOVE this crate! But, even better... my dog loves this crate. We did try other “safe” crates but they were just too hot for him and he finally just refused to go it. He loves his impact crate and always seems comfortable when I take him out. He has no issues going in.
We bought the stationary crate for one of the rescues here. He has destroyed over 10 large crates. I love this crate it definitely keeps him in
Seriously, the latch is what sold me on these crates. Arthritic hands don't do well with hard to release latches and the latches on these crates are totally easy and the doors swing open easily as well. I got these to replace my Rufftuff crates for that reason only.
Dog has anxiety and does NOT like to be in the crate if I leave the house. Pleasantly surprised that it as advertised. She doesn't chew or shred it and it fits perfectly in the collapsible crate! She does pull it back at the corner sometimes in high anxiety mode, but it hasn't ripped or torn or anything. Allows her to have some cushion for comfort without shredding or destroying. Thank you for the great mat and crate!
I have a 4 year old Shar-Pei and a 1 year old Alaskan Malamute that don't get along with each other after my Malamute went through puberty. They have gotten into fights that ended up with one in the hospital. I had Wired Kennels for a while but I couldn't keep him in them for too long. Only when I was switching them out to go outside. With this kennel I have 0 worries once that door is shut, add the latches and it's a Super Max Kennel. Absolutely worth the money!! He loves it, I love it, my Shar-Pei loves it, it's perfect.
Got it to day looks good and very sturdy i am going to test it out tomorrow hopefully it dose it's job and i will let u know how it holds up against Aries
Our create came in the midst of sheltering in place. The best thing about this pandemic is that our 60# puppy with separation anxiety has had time to acclimate to his new crate. He destroyed one that four families have used over the years. Now Griffin takes all his toys to his new home!!
Thank you for giving us peace of mind and him a secure home!
I have a 1 year old King Shepherd, He has both Seperation anxiety and Extreme general anxiety. He has to be on medication tranquilizers everyday to calm him down.
If anyone leaves the house he looses it. He whines, barkes, scratches and chews things up. This is when someone is still with him.
Me and my mom were working in the front yard and he was in the backyard with my grandma, and he started whining excessively, and then pushed himself half way out of our fence. He has also done the same thing at the shelter and gotten injured so after this I knew this wasn't the company I wanted to get from anymore, but the company I needed to get a crate from.
I originally ordered the largest size currently available as he is a king Shepherd and once it arrived... it couldn't fit through the door so it had to be sent back. Customer service was extremely friendly, and helpful for choosing sizes, sending the one crate back, and getting another smaller size. The size they recommended was perfect for him. It gives him room to turn around in but also to stretch out on his side.
Within the first day of getting it after throwing a couple treats in it he went in on his own. Now after a week of having it he goes in there both when I ask him to kennel up and when he wants to sleep in there generally late of night. I can close the door for a little while I'm still in the house and he is fine. Although we still need to work on leaving home. It is too big to put in my cars trunk and a bit to heavy but we still love it!
1000/10% would recommend.

Impact crates are solid and exactly what I needed to replace my aging plastic and wire crates. My dogs sleep comfortably and stacked together the crates don't take up too much space. Also the pad was on backorder and Impact was so kind to send a diffrent pad until mine comes in. A great company who really cares about their customers and the crates are solidly built and will last a lifetime.
I love my impact dog crate. I ordered the 400 high anxiety crate for my German Shepherd mix, Rookie. She has really bad separation anxiety. Her last crate (a black wire crate from Petco) was a mess. She has broke the door off (was held on by carabiners after that) and broke the black plastic underneath. When she would escape she would cause damage to the house that cost me thousands. The only thing I did not like is I am a night worker, and I wasn’t able to track the shipping with the company that was used. They called me the day before (woke me up) and weren’t that flexible with shipping it to me. So I had to miss sleep to retrieve the delivery and was unable to fall back asleep after the call. Other then that I’m in love with the crate and I am so grateful for it. I do not have a picture in her new crate but I do have pictures of her for any size references for others, the damage she did to my boyfriends man cave when she escaped her old crate and a picture of her poor nose when she would attempt escapes out of her old crate (and under her butt you can see where she destroyed that carpet as well). Crate = 1000 - Flooring in the house redone = 8000. Should have just bought the crate and saved money in the long run😅
We shopped a number of "high end" brands of crates for our new Malinois puppy. We settled on Impact based on our own research and the recommendation of our PSA trainer. We were incredibly happy with what we got. It came 100% assembled and required no extra work on our part. It's built with very high quality materials. The open/close and lock of the door is SO dang easy. Gone are the days of sliding two locks in place on a typical crate. This opens with a finger and closes/locks with a soft touch of the door. The regular is fine for most dogs I'd assume. If your dog is going to literally bang the mess out of the door you might wanna consider the escape proof one, but this one suits our needs fine as our boy is perfectly happy to be at home in the crate. This is worth every penny and will stay with us the entire life of our Mal. Very happy customer.
I drive a wheelchair lift equipped van and have so with three generations of Mobility Assistance Service Dogs. Impact Dog Crates High Anxiety XXL crate is incredibly well made and offers a ride safe alternative to laying on the bench back seat and being thrown around in even to an accident. I have seen reviews criticizing the seemingly high price of the Impact Dog Crate and as a disabled combat wounded veteran live on a limited fixed income so I had to save for several months to get the right crate but it was well worth the sacrifice and cost. Impact Dog Crates are extremely well made and my dog immediately claimed it as his. This is not something you will have to buy year after year but will last for decades protecting your loyal and hard working friend when you travel!
