    I have 2 of the Hero Edition crates and I have been very pleased with them. The door construction is solid and I do not have to worry about dogs breaking out of these. With the recent modifications done to the ventilation hole size and spacing, I do not see how a dog could chew through one of these.

    The only reason I’m giving four stars is due to the quality control. I know a few other handlers that have these crates with no issues. When I received mine, it had a screw that had dislodged from the lower dead bolt and a loose(minor) strike plate. Luckily I found the screw and was able to fix that no problem, but the strike plate is riveted in.

    It also seems the door is slightly out of alignment as the top deadbolt takes some maneuvering to lock it into place and I quite literally have to slam the door to shut it. Once it’s shut and the deadbolt seats it’s bulletproof though.

    The only thing I can think of is it’s shipping method that caused the problems. It shipped literally across the country to me and was only packaged in a cardboard box and plastic wrap. I know FedEx isn’t too kind on their cargo so I’m assuming it got knocked around pretty good during shipping.

With that said, our framed door kennel products can not contain ALL dogs. We expect that there are some breeds and or pets that are beyond containment with our products.

We are regularly working on additional products and upgraded designs that will give a higher degree of containment for aggressive breeds.

Dakota 283 products are exceptionally durable and with proper care will provide many years of use for you and your pet.
