I have very mellow crate-trained danes. They are not "hard" on their crates by any means, but ranging from 115-160lbs, they're heavy. The tray in these things cracks along each of the wires on the undergrid. After going through MANY of these suckers, replacing the tray for $50 a pop, I found a solution.
Placing a mat or rug or blanket.. anything with some cushion, between the grid and the tray solves this problem, entirely. If your tray is already cracked and destroyed by the weight or your giant breed dog, duct tape the underside of the tray, and the top, and then put a rug under it. I just buy fleece at the fabric department on clearance, and double layer it on all of mine- it's a pretty cheap solution.
The rest of the crate is sturdy and hold up very well. I wish the tray could just be fantastic as-is. But it's not, and there's no better one out there, so that's what we've done to make do with that we have.
Its bad enough you have to buy the pan separately even though its pictured on the colossal crate product, then you get a pan that doesn't even fit.
Love the kennel, hate the pan.
I was worried about ordering the pan because:
1. reviewers said it sometimes arrived damaged in transit
2. it was flimsy
Here's my experience:
1. we received our pan by mail and it was damaged in one corner. The next day, we heard from the seller, who apologized and said a new one would be sent right away. It was, and it was perfect! And we were able to keep the other pan, too. No hassle.
2. we do rescue and have had a variety of dogs temporarily housed in the crate. The only one who did damage to the pan was our diggin' bloodhound girl. But I read a super tip from one of the reviewers which we implemented: put a doubled-up blanket between the pan and the metal floor of the crate to help preserve the plastic pan.
So we were happy with the way things turned out!
I purchased the 54" crate and pan from Midwest for my last Dane in 2009. She was a bit unruly as a pup, but the pan held up fine during those times. As with all of my dogs, once she was old enough to have free roam of the house, the crate is accessible but not used often (as all Dane owners know: they prefer couches. lol!). It was still in good shape when I got my little Dane pup this year; he's not at all unruly so I blame the cracked pan on myself: I would often step into the crate to clean up after him rather than remove the pan. Somehow, I didn't realize that the pan comes out easily through the door -- while I thought I would have to try to unhook the 'roof' of the crate to get the pan out. Once I realized how easy it was to remove, I decided to buy a new pan and do it right from then on! I thought the pan that came with the crate was a bit flimsy, but since it held up to years of use, I was hoping for at least the same quality, but had my doubts based on these reviews.
The pan came in -- unscathed, fortunately!! -- and I was amazed at how much thicker and better quality it was compared to the original Midwest pan that I still had. I had to wonder what others had received. It is definitely thicker and heavier than the original pan that came with the crate; just in weight alone you can feel a difference.Read more ›

The fit is perfect. We had to put some folded towels under it to make it more stable, as that what other reviews are saying. So far, so good.Published 1 month ago by Red
