I love the crate - it fits in with the other furniture which was key to me. My pup seems really happy in it too. I think the top of it could be a higher quality finish - one of my edges is a bit scuffed - this would add to durability. It was super easy to put together too. All i

Our little pup is arriving this week so we have just built this this weekend . Reasonably easy to build but did take a while to do . It’s very sturdy . Only criticism ... the wardrobe doors fits nice and snug - so snug that it’s v difficult to open up . I think it should have a handle or a spring close mechanism ? Looking forward to our pup enjoying her new home :)

It took 3 college educated people, including an architect to assemble the crate. Whew! All of us agree that the instructions were overly complicated.
The result is terrific, but be prepared — this is not a one-person job.
Although I am 72 year old female, I managed to put the Crate together all by myself, though I found the instructions hard to follow, with only pictures and no words. Took me 2 hours, but it works well. It fits nearly into my space, with a white wall background, but I would have liked a timber look option.
First and foremost, the Fido crate is a fantastic idea and a dream for all owners who would like a crate that would fit and integrate seamlessly into their living space (rather than a standalone crate with grilles). My dog loves his crate and happily sleeps in it every night and whenever he wants some me-time.
I took 1 star off as the flat-pack assembly instructions were not straightforward to follow, and some of the holes were not drilled properly. This is definitely an area that can be improved as what may be intuitive to the designers/engineers might not be for a first-time layman user!
Overall, buy with confidence and your dog will love you for it.
