The Lucky Dog Uptown Kennel requires minimal assembly. With no tools necessary, it’s incredibly quick and easy to construct. The panels simply clamp together to create a spacious environment for your pet. There’s plenty of room for food bowls, toys, and beds – and the generous dimensions can be extended to create an even larger kennel, if you were to purchase a second crate.

Long-Lasting

Showcasing a stylish black finish, the welded steel frame is both sturdy and safe. Designed to prevent rust, the Lucky Dog Uptown Kennel is constructed with professional grade materials to ensure years of use. The wire has been carefully welded to provide a smooth surface – essential for your pet’s safety.

Waterproof Cover

We were impressed with the free waterproof cover. This added bonus allows your pet to stay comfortable, secure and dry outdoors, whatever the weather.

Price

This kennel offers fantastic value for money. For such premium quality, it’s very reasonably priced compared to similar products on the market. With the addition of the weatherproof cover, it’s high calibre construction means it’s likely to last you and your pet a long time. This kennel is potentially long lasting and well constructed, and it’s price reflects the quality materials and design. This means it may be an unsuitable choice for those dog owners on a tighter budget, or looking for a more temporary, disposable kennel solution.

Cons

Stationary

If you’re looking for a portable pen for your pet, this may not be the right choice for you. Due to it’s large proportions and quality steel construction, you can expect this crate to weigh in a little on the heavier side. Tipping the scales at just over 100 lbs, it’s not the sort of kennel that’s easy to transport frequently, particularly for the smaller individual. The Lucky Dog Kennel offers a premium, sturdy build that’s not really compatible with quick portability. The kennel’s easy assembly is totally tool free, but we’d recommend two people for the job to ensure a speedy build.

Cover Can Break

Unlike the solid steel frame, the waterproof cover is slightly flimsy and may show signs of and wear and tear with time. Replacements are of course available at reasonable prices, but this is an important cost to factor into your decision.

May Not Work In Smaller Homes

Those with smaller homes may be unable to accommodate this vast crate. Although ultimately designed as an outdoor kennel, some dog owners may wish to provide a secure space indoors for their pet. The Lucky Dog Kennel is generously proportioned, meaning many pet owners would struggle to find adequate room for it. However, a 4′ by 4′ option is also available to suit smaller breeds or properties.

Even Ground

Patios, gardens and yards are ideal areas for this kennel, however terrain needs to be relatively flat to ensure your dog’s security. Hilly, uneven surfaces may affect the stability of the Lucky Dog Kennel.

Conclusion

The Lucky Dog Uptown Welded Wire Kennel is a premium product at a reasonable price. Boasting a wealth of impressive features, it is solidly constructed with spacious dimensions – suitable for even the largest breeds. The smooth construction of the 10 gauge welded steel provides an appealing aesthetic, while making sure your pet remains comfortable.

This crate is most certainly purpose built for outdoor use, owing to it’s sturdy build and fantastic weatherproof cover. This addition allows an extra level of protection to shelter your pet from the elements. However, owners with larger properties could benefit from using it indoors too. The kennel provides a single gate with a long wearing hinge and a lockable latch – these added security features make it a reassuringly safe option, especially for more active pets.

This quality kennel is most certainly a safe bet. It’s durable, secure and well designed. You should get plenty of use out of the Lucky Dog Kennel, making it fantastic value for your money too.
