Rated 5 out of 5 by Kuro 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UrsulaP 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeniseMH 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by McKenzieMama Great Features and Very Sturdy.
I purchased the 42 in. double door crate for my Cocker Spanial as I wanted her to have room to get up and move around to stretch her legs while I was at work all day. She is older, so well potty trained, but has a dribble problem and that's why I keep her confined. The 42 in. crate pads fit great and at a very reasonable price, I bought two so I could rotate them. She is very happy and goes in willingly to receive her small treat. I would totally recommend this product. Very strong and heavy enough to stay put as she moves around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kathy64 Love the ease of assembly, the second door convenience.
I love the ease of assembly, the convenience of the second door for placement in my minivan. I can place more crates in my van since the second door allows entry from more than one side. It's a great value at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WesHall2001 2nd Doggie Crate from Midwest
We bought our first crate from Midwest 18 years ago and it is still working. We needed a crate for the our vehicles with a side and front entrance for our Ridgeback and I knew Midwest was well built. Unlike some other crates, the sections are held together with metal bracket clips oppose to plastic ones.
My only complaint is that I wish they would have kept the metal tray instead of switching to the plastic ones, since dogs have been know to chew this trays to pieces. Good value for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Genochemist Not Perfect in Workmanship
This is our second Midwest Life Stages double door crate, as our puppy outgrew the last one.
I now have a 42-inch crate which is plenty of room for my female Vizsla. The crate is well-built and sturdy, but I would not put anything heavy on top though. Easy set up.
I have only one complaint thus far and that is the bottom slide bolt latch does not align properly, making it difficult to fasten quickly.
I did get the 6 casters which makes it very easy to move for cleaning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoxerOwner Midwest large crate
The delivery was extremely fast!! I couldn't believe how quickly it came in. The crate has a couple nicks here and there but it will suffer from that through normal wear me tear, so not a big deal. Easy to assemble & disassemble. The price on Chewy.com was by far the best than anywhere else I looked! Thank you and I will be ordering from you guys again
