LifeStages® single-door and double door dog crates by MidWest Homes for Pets® are designed completely around the safety, security, and comfort of your dog. LifeStages® crates set up easily in seconds, do not require tools, and can be assembled by almost anyone. Features include safe and secure slide-bolt latches, rounded corners, a durable satin-black Electro-Coat finish, and a removable, washable plastic pan for easy cleanup in the event of an accident. LifeStages® crates also come with a free divider panel for use while your puppy is growing. Simply choose the size of crate that your dog will need when it reaches its full adult size. The divider panel will allow you to adjust the length of the living area while your puppy grows, keeping the living space small enough to reduce the chance of your puppy eliminating in one end and sleeping in the other.

If you have a medium sized doggie and are looking for a crate because you live in an apartment, this particular model is a good choice. Crate training is amazingly simple (just don't use it for punishment--make it a happy experience when your puppy go into his crate). We have been using this for two months, and he takes to it easily.

1. Easy to put together and fold away. Solid black e-coat steel wire, conjoined with small metal plates with welded corners facing out. It comes with a slightly smaller divider that you can hook to the insides of the crate. As our puppy got bigger, we moved the divider and eventually removed it.

2. The two doors (one on the long end is off-centered) are not removable and opens only one way so it's not omni-directional when you place it in tight spaces. You may want to check out some crates with three doors if so.

3. The bottom tray is made of black-composite plastic material, easy to wipe clean and slide out from under the short end of the door.

4. I like the double latch, but some people may find it a little more work to open and close day-to-day.

5. If you buy a crate cover, check out Cratewear Pet Dreams 3-Piece (which fits this model well, but only work with the door on the short end).

6. For this price, it's a good crate to highly consider because your goal is to have a sanctuary for your puppy (for time out and quiet-time) and to housebreak your dog and/or temperate from negative behavior (such as chewing furniture, etc.)

I hope this review is helpful for you.

Size Name: 36"L x 24"W x 27"H Verified Purchase
Having raised and cage trained many dogs from pups, we've usually given the bulky cages away after successful house breaking. We found this to be the best we have owned over the years because:

1) Cage is very sturdy. Others we have used have had much thinner and more easily bent wire.
2) Two doors. Inevitably you need to place the cage in a position where a side door is needed.
3) Divider to constrain puppies. A divider is the way to train a small pup, limiting their ability to relieve themselves to only where they rest. They get it much more quickly. In every other situation, I built my own divider out of plywood. This would have saved me construction time and readjusting as they grew. Another suggestion - Don't use towels or blankets that might absorb urine during taining. Once or twice and your dog "gets it." Introduce a blanket or pad only after they are trustworthy in the crate.
4) Best fold and setup of any cage I have owned.
5) Price. Checked out three big box pet stores. This was a better value for all the items above at a lower price.
6) Liked the plastic tray for our situation as our dog is house broken and not a chewer. Think a metal insert might have been better for pups.


1) Rough spots on wire end edge at doorways. I used a fine file to smooth out the sharp edges I found on several wire ends. The manufacturer should have done the same smoothing they used on the corners at the door openings.
2) Clips not fully closed. There are metal clips that act as hinges for set up and fold down. Several were not completely clamped close, again making an unsafe edge for you or your pet. A pliers made quick work of that problem.

I really wanted to give this product a five.

I bought this crate for my 30-lb beagle/terrier mix dog and it's great. It folds up in a cinch (it's literally 3 steps and takes about 10 seconds max) and has carry handles on the side, so it's really easy to transport. I like having the 2 doors so I have options of how I can place the crate in a room. There are latches on the top and bottom of each door so it's very secure. Great crate!

We have three dogs. One is a 45 lb Boxer, another is a 30 lb. Boxer/Pitbull mix, and the last one is an 75 lb. Pitbull. We have owned a 36" Midwest Life Stages crate for over six years that has been used by each one of our dogs; and have gone through four 36" ASPCA crates.

We had the initially purchased the Midewest for our Boxer at a local pet store for $120.00 (we didn't know how cheap they were at Amazon). When it came time to buy crates for the other two we decided to buy two ASPCA crates for $75.00 each. Our dogs are extremely hyper, and get EXTREME seperation anxiety. Long story short...we left for two hours, and came back to both ASPCA crates being ripped to pieces. The welds on the crates were broken, and the plastic trays that lined them were broken and chewed to bits. Because it was so easy for them to bend the bars on the ASPCA crates, one of the dogs (the boxer) pulled down the front portion of the crate and was able to escape (thank God she wasn't hurt). The only crate left standing was the Midwest, in pristine condition, that held our 75 lb. Pitbull on this particular occassion. We then purchased two more crates (I forget the brand), and they broke those crates to bits as well.

I just purchased three brand new 36" Midwest Life Stages Crates for $54.00 each from Amazon, and they were delivered the next day for only $3.99 shipping and handling (I signed up for the free membership trial). We have been using them for the past week, and there is not so much as a bent bar!

I highly, highly, highly recommend these crates!!!!!!!! They are extremely durable (even for the big, strong, and hyper). They will last you a lifetime, and you can not beat this price anywhere!
