No I haven't.... but if your dog chewed his way out of crates you might wanna explore another option .... training, daycare or anxiety work

I purchased this crate in January 2018. After seeing all the positive reviews I thought it was a good choice. I found out unfortunately the same thing you did. I have a very old Labrador retriever.

I put him in that crate at night and heard a loud barking, Other lab won’t me up and I realized it was coming from the garage where I had put the old dog in the crate I had just opened and put together three days ago. I found a disaster when I open the garage… My dog was half in and half out the crate. He almost died last night it was absolutely horrifying..Do you have panicked and apparently tried to chew out of the crate he was halfway successful. It is very cheaply made and came to me and shipment slightly bent at the bottom but when I put it together it did not seem to be an issue. It became a huge issue at almost lost my dog last night because of this terribly constructed crate. I do not recommend anyone buy it. I intend asked for a full refund and you’re lucky that I don’t sue them for the vet bill. see less I purchased this crate in January 2018.

Our GSD's middle name is also Destruction! They must be related - she has learned to open the doors, even with carabiners on the latches, and she did chew up the plastic pan (though it was very sturdy - am still at a loss of how she did it), despite having her two favorite Nylabones and her beloved Kong in there with her. She has, as other people mentioned, collapsed the crate on top of herself, but some zip ties remedied that issue in a hurry. In short - I would still definitely recommend this crate, but you should possibly be prepared for additional security - namely, zip ties and carabiners.

Not me, but my dog is more of a claw-er and less of a chewer. It seems pretty sturdy to me, I would be super impressed if your dog chewed out. My neighbor has the same one for his pitbull (who tore out a giant chunk of drywall) and it's withstood her tendency to destroy things.

Not that I know of. The shelter that I got my puppy from uses them all the time for all different types of dogs
and I've never heard of a dog chewing out of it. Plastic type crates, yes, but this one no!

Wow! We bought this crate for my daughter's dog who is quite a chewer and I'd be shocked to hear of a dog chewing through this cage. It's reasonably priced, yet still sturdy.

I have no problem with my boxer who's first name is destruction !!! Haha she will eat the plastic bottom that it comes with but I got creative and went to Home Depot and got a piece of plywood to fit and then sprayed it with a rhino liner style paint that works like a champ

The bottom of the crate, the tray, is plastic. Could be an issue if your pet is left in too long or has separation anxiety with nothing else to chew on. Would be worth a try even if you had to buy another tray. You won't find another crate this quality at this price.

Not sure if mine chewed out of it but I came home to her on my couch and the front door of this crate all bent to heck and laying in the floor. The wire is just not that strong.
