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.
The Fido Studio Dog Crate was simplicity itself to assemble and consists of remarkably high quality materials. Very good value for money and stylish 'to boot'...Highly recommend it!
We’ve had this crate since we first brought our puppy home. The first thing he did was stretch out loving the fact he had so much space after being in the litter. Luckily he was already crate trained when he came home, he’s never had a problem being there and is as happy being popped in during the day if we have to leave him, as he is at bedtime. He has plenty of room to grow into it too. Also has the added bonus of being easy to clean and looks good in our living room too!
Bought this for my cockapoo puppy and she loves it. The lovely cushion is very good quality and fits perfectly.
Love the crate and the idea of having it as part of your furniture - it's definitely one-of-its-kind out there.
However, I had some serious issues with the getting the right products delivered (there were 2 wrong deliveries) before finally receiving what I ordered.
The DIY instructions and the flat pack components were also not the most user-friendly and it was a bit of a challenge putting it all together and having to figure out how they all piece together.
I am now the proud owner of a gorgeous Fido Studio 36 and Wardrobe for my pug, Boris. I chose the larger size even though I know the smaller one is more pug appropriate, in case I get another dog in the future. He loves it! To be fair he'd probably fit in the wardrobe at a push but with his huge new crate he has loads of room for a bed and his food and water bowls.
The construction was easy to follow and I didn't make any major mistakes. I like the fact that the wardrobe could be separated again later and the crate doors rearranged if I wanted to, so the crate could adapt to fit a different location. the white walls fit in perfectly with my craft room white furniture and I no longer feel like I'm being mean and trapping him in a wire cage while I work: he's got his own little mansion! Love the fact that there's even an Omlet brand logo plate... for the inside of the crate! Makes me smile because only he can see it in day to day use but there are a lot of careful details like that included.
On top of that I've got my cutting mat on the top of the crate as a little desk extension, so I get something out of the arrangement too, and the wardrobe is even big enough for my sewing machine (but I think he'll be claiming all of that space too).
I had been looking to purchase a dog crate 'with a twist' for a while - primarily to fit an alcove in my living room. I wanted something to compliment the rest of the room & comfortably accommodate my miniature schnauzer. The Fido 36 is perfect. It looks good in the alcove & the dog loves it, she can stretch out with room to spare! It's well designed, easy to put together & value for money. Very pleased with my purchase.
I got the 36'' crate with a wardrobe on the side and both me and my dog love it! It blends in lovely with other pieces of furniture in the house and the covered top makes it easier to find a place in the house without setting off the house alarm. My 1 year old Cavapoo loves to have his own space that he can sprawl out in and be comfy! It's a very sturdy product and so easy to clean. Could not recommend this crate enough!
Bought one of the dog crates with the cupboard attached for my Grooming salon and I absolutely love it - it looks great, less like a crate and more like a cosy little room for your dog!
I’d just like to say that my dogs love their new crate. They love having their own space to relax in and I’ll often find them asleep in the crate even when the door is open.
I love the stability of the crate and the way it blends in with the other furniture in the house. It’s easy to clean and looks great.
An absolute must for every dog owner.
