    I purchased the MidWest LifeStages Double Door Collapsible Wire Dog Crate in X-Large 48L X 30W X 33 H, to replace the existing Intermediate double door size, 36-in L x 24-in W x 27-in H crate. If your dog is like mine, who loves to stretch out when sleeping, you NEED to get this size crate. I have I purchased the MidWest LifeStages Double Door Collapsible Wire Dog Crate in X-Large 48L X 30W X 33 H, to replace the existing Intermediate double door size, 36-in L x 24-in W x 27-in H crate. If your dog is like mine, who loves to stretch out when sleeping, you NEED to get this size crate. I have a boxer mix (55 lb), and I was afraid Bria might have hip issues later, because of being in a crate that was only adequate. This crate arrived in great condition, is sturdy, well-made, and easy to assemble. She absolutely loves this X-large crate. I also bought the MidWest QuietTime Couture Paxton Reversible Dog Crate Mat in X-Large, which I highly recommend. The mat is made by MidWest, and fits the crate perfectly, providing the support and cushioning needed. I put a sheet on top of the mat, with a fleece blanket on one end for warmth; the other end has the sheet, so she can decide her own comfort. She loves pillows, so there is one at each end. Now that she has the X-large crate, she has stopped rearranging her bedding at night, if she got too warm. But she has never been destructive. She uses the X-large crate whenever she wants to take a good nap, and can fully stretch-out. And she leaves the bedding alone. Note: I only cover the crate on the back and partial sides for a den-like feeling. It is their safe-haven. Never completely cover the crate on all sides, or they may feel they are being punished, and may promote destructive behaviors. (The other crate does not go to waste; it is used throughout the day by both the cats and dogs for naps.) … more

    Disappointed. Not adjustable enough, paint missing

    By SGCMom on May 28, 2020

    I did a lot of research before choosing this crate and I am disappointed in both it’s design and it’s condition. This crate is advertised as being appropriate for all ages by using the included divider. However with the double doors set up the way they are (side door is nearest to the end with the I did a lot of research before choosing this crate and I am disappointed in both it’s design and it’s condition. This crate is advertised as being appropriate for all ages by using the included divider. However with the double doors set up the way they are (side door is nearest to the end with the end door), it is impossible to make this crate small enough for a puppy. The divider will not hang on the door properly so it has to be put behind the door which makes a still massive area for a puppy (30x27) . The vertical bars under the door are not aligned with the bars on the door, therefore the bottom hook on the divider has nothing to hook to if you try to hang it on the door. The divider also leaves a significant gap along the bottom. It cannot be moved down further and there is easily enough room for a puppy to get a leg stuck under the divider. If you feed on the crate (and I do) and kibble spills under the divide I can certainly see a pup getting a leg wedged underneath trying to reach that kibble. I know someone else with two Midwest crates that do not have nearly as large of a gap. Her dividers can also hang on the door. I do not know if the door in the one I have is made poorly or if she just got lucky. In addition, there are multiple places with paint already missing, straight out of the box. I’m capable of touching up paint, but you shouldn’t have to on a brand new item. Aside from the missing paint the rest do the crate seems well constructed. The gauge of the wires is thick enough to feel sturdy and the doors operate well. It may be a good crate for an adult dog but due to poor door placements and design of the divider it is not useful for all Life Stages. Now I have a heavy item to figure out how to return and no crate for the puppy. Or I have to hold onto this one for six months and go buy another crate locally for the puppy stage. … more
