MidWest Life Stages Double Door Dog Crate
Best price, quick delivery
I had researched this crate for a week and searched dozens of websites comparing prices, shipping rates and shipping timeframes. Not on did chewy.com have this order in stock (which other sites did not), it also had the best price, free shipping and it arrived in two days. Product was just as described, easy to assemble and well made. It was recommended to me by my breeder. I'm very pleased all around.

Excellent product, very easy to assemble and disassemble.
The large crate I ordered was very nice though a little heavy because of its size. Very easy to assemble and disassemble. The crate material is well made with just one issue - the two plastic handles for carrying the crate when folded broke easily when inserted to the carry the crate. If you are not careful the handle can easily break.
I called Chewy and they cannot provide a replacement just for the one handle that was broken but they are very willing to replace the whole crate and have me donate the one I received to an animal shelter which was very nice of them.
I decided to keep it and will improvise a handle since I only need the handle when carrying the crate to the car, during dog's use, and when carrying it back to the garage to store it.

The two door option is a benefit for space saving.
This crate is exactly the right size for my growing pup. The two door option is nice to have when moving this crate to different spaces within my home. Would recommend this to my future puppy buyers.

Strong crate, well made
The Midwest life stages crates are the only ones I'll own. We get the double door style so placement is not restricted and for puppy use, place coop dishes inside so pup can eat at will until old enough to be on a feeding schedule. These crates are strong!.....and well made and easy to set up or take down. We now own 4 (had 3 same size dogs), and just got toy breed puppy. No crate better as far as we're concerned. All our dogs are crate trained, sleep overnight and when we are gone in them, and can quite often be found in theirs by choice at other times. Wouldn't own a dog without one!

I've bought lots of crates and this one is my favorite. I breed French Bulldogs and they are really spoiled. I get a large crate so they can do flips if they want. Lol they only sleep in them for their safety. I love the double door for litters. I put a baby bed bumper pad around the sides. Works wonderfully. Chewys has the best price I've seen! I'll be ordering more as needed.

Love this crate. We bought the 30-inch size for our growing border collie puppy back in August 2013. We knew she wouldn't be much bigger than 30 pounds, and at almost ten months she's 25. She fits very nicely in the crate with plenty of room, and we've even taken it on trips when the hotels require her to be crated when we are gone. The double doors are awesome and I honestly would never buy another crate without that option. It's easy to put together and take apart, easy to move, and most of all, seems more than capable for our needs. I'm not sure if it would withstand a very aggressive chewer, but it handled our puppy through her 'puppy stages' with dignity. Great crate!

Two door feature is great
The two door feature of this crate allows the flexibility of placement in the home. The crate is quality construction. I would recommend ordering a size larger than the company chart. The large ended up being the correct size for our 58 lb. lab mix, NOT the medium as suggested.
