Excellent value

Compared to similar sized kennels, the PetSafe Box Kennel comes in at an affordable price. If you’re looking for a vast and versatile kennel on a budget, this is certainly it. A professionally built kennel of this proportion could cost considerably more, so this DIY solution really does give you value for money.

Cons

Truth be told, we really had a hard time finding anything wrong with this outdoor dog kennel. Take all of these cons with a grain of salt. The PetSafe Box Kennel for Pets really is a premium outdoor dog kennel.

Heavy!

Shipping at a weight of 136 lbs, this large kennel isn’t the most lightweight of options. A smaller pet owner could struggle to transport it, so allow two or more persons to ensure your safety. This weight is also a plus, since this kennel will be able to withstand heavy winds!

Takes up to 20 minutes to set up

The PetSafe Box Kennel does require some basic tools to assemble. You really shouldn’t need to possess much DIY knowledge, as the chain-link fabric simply connects to the frame. However, some pet owners have noted they found it slightly more complicated to construct than some other available options. Set up time seems to be very varied, with some pet owners spending only 20 minutes on construction, and others requiring up to two hours. In addition to this, if you’re looking for a particularly travel-friendly choice, the PetSafe Box Kennel is designed more for security than portability – frequent assembly and disassembly could be time-consuming

Not great for hard chewers

If your pet is particularly strong, or an active chewer, the wire mesh design may not be sturdy enough to prevent him from breaking it. Some reviews suggest the chain-link construction is a little flimsy for especially large, determined dogs. However, the galvanized steel should provide enough strength and durability for the majority of pets.

Does your dog jump high?

Although compatible kennel covers and sun-shades are available for purchase, these do not come as standard with the PetSafe Box Kennel. This means it does not come with a roof or cover, which may be off-putting to owners of large pets, or those on a strict budget. However, it does measure a generous 6′ in height, so most dogs should be unable to escape.

Conclusion

The PetSafe Box Kennel is an extremely large, versatile pen perfect for outdoor use. Measuring an unrivalled 10’x10′, it’s ideal for a variety of different animals. Requiring only a little DIY skill, you can construct this spacious, rust-resistant kennel-in-a-box at an affordable price.
