We got this for our 9 month boxer, who sleeps in a kennel when we are at home. Since he grew out of his hard-sided travel kennel, it seems like all of our travel nights have been interrupted by him waking up and wandering around, sometime crying, in an unfamiliar place. Unfortunately, we didn't have a chance to acclimate him to the sport sack dog tent as much as we would have liked before the first use, so there was some complaint the first time he was in the kennel. As promised, the netting stood up to several strong scrapes with sharp dog toenails as he settled in, and he ended up sleeping great! Not only did we have the peace of mind that our friend's house wasn't getting destroyed by a curious puppy, but we also didn't have any middle-of-the-night walkabouts or whining. Highly recommend for any crate-trained dog to have a bigger option that is both super-portable and durable.
