|I have a few options plus ultra and a few platinum. I like them both. Going on 4 years old, no rust, dogs have not damaged them except for one door, and my Pit Bull did that to get out. No kennel would've stood up to it, so I can't fault the kennel. I bought mine through ebay, saved a little bit.|
Personally, lately, I just check craigslist for good deals. Avoid chain link like the plague. I got the platinum kennel on craigslist for $200. LOL
Where are you located? I have some extra panels for the ultra series.

|Chain Link has worked well for me for years. I get the heavier gauge wire and they last forever. I do like the options plus and Mason as well. Tractor Supply or Southern States have some nice kennels as well.|

|I wish the L&M ones worked for me, though they're expensive. They are very nice and very sturdy. No normal animal is going to get out of them. I bought one used once and the dog (same darn dog) trashed it and was oh-so-proud of himself when he appeared on the porch, as if I had been looking for him and hoping he'd show up, lol. This is the same dog who ruined the door on one of those solid metal jail-style crates you're supposed to buy for escape artists. I thought I'd win a prize when my dog was the first to ruin the door on one of those. The company was shocked, but I didn't win a prize. I did get a new door at cost, however, since they had been so sure that design was "escape proof". I had to send them pictures; they didn't believe me.|
At any rate, look for all the above-mentioned brands on craigslist. I have gotten GREAT deals this way. It's hit or miss, of course, but worth it to check regularly. My Optinons Plus Ultras are the only ones I bought new. If I remember right, I bought a 3 kennel set-up, each 5x10, for $1200 or so. I found a matching one locally on ebay for $200 and made it a 4 kennel system....which I hardly ever use. LOL

|Last year when we put new kennels in we did them in commercial weight chain link just like our font fence. We will be moving in about 2 yrs and when we do we will be purchasing Options Plus kennels which we wish we had done this last time.|
