You Can't Go Wrong With This Dog Cage
Clifford Martin from Pensacola, FL– Verified Buyer
I bought this medium sized Life Stages cage to supplement the small sized I-Crate cage obtained at the pet store for transporting my Sheltie puppy home and which for now, serves as her sleeping quarters The medium cage will accomodate an adult Sheltie and serves as a "safe shelter" for the puppy during daily activities not related to her socialization and training. The puppy has taken to the cage quite naturally as her day-time shelter, napping area and prefers the side door open. The double door offers more flexibility in orienting the cage in its desired location. The Life Stages Medium sized cage is a little larger in dimensions than the I-Crate Medium sized cage and it is made of slightly heavier gauge wire; hence it will be a little heavier. The double door model's price was less than the single door model which makes it more cost effective even if only one door is desired. We are completely satisfied with the construction and serviceability of this product which meets all of our needs and that of our pet. Shipment and handling was expeditious and professional in all respects. This product is one of the better dog cages and it is highly recommended.
Folding Dog Crate
Dennis from MI– Verified Buyer
These "Life Stages" crates work really well for house breaking puppies. The adjustable insert is really helpful to not give them too much space while they are young. A note to dog owners questioning the use of crates: Never use to punish the dog. We use when putting them to bed for the night or leaving the house. Really it becomes their "bedroom" and keeps them safe so they don't get into trouble or even hurt themselves or damage things in your house. Our dogs will actually seek the enclosed space when they want to relax or be left alone. They are after all, denning animals.
Owners of Two of these.

Work very well for our Yorkie Sisters at nighttime or when we are away from our home. Lots of freedom for them to move around and stretch inside. We have even double decked them, one on top of the other like bunk beds, and they are very secure and will not topple over preventing any kind of an accident or injury. For anyone who might try this setup, just make sure, do a test first, that they Do Not Move or Wiggle.
Great and sturdy
Shannon from Whitney, TX– Verified Buyer
I have had this product for 2 years. I have a Rottweiler/German Shep mix. I bought this when he was a baby and used it to crate train him. The divider was very convenient. It was easy to move as he grew. It was also light enough to move inside and outside on a daily basis. He sleeps in my daughter's room, so the crate is permanently outside on a covered patio. I bought a cover and a pad for it and he uses the crate as his house while we are at work. I would recommend this product.
Evonne from Millis, MA– Verified Buyer
We use this in our living room for our 60lb. black lab. She has plenty of space and when we re-arrange furniture, we can choose to use the side or front door. This is doggy's house and she's very comfy there with her bed inside. My only complaint would be that the metal-on-metal can be noisy when doggy moves around. The removable tray is a nice feature if water is spilled or for cleaning.
Good for most Dogs!
Rodney Raines from East Peoria, IL– Verified Buyer
This cage suits my needs. My adult dogs dont try to escape. I use them to separate my 3 females who will fight each other. I have recently discovered that my male dog is smart enough to open the cage from the outside and release my females... the cage was empty of females... he was actually going after the food that one of them had left behind. None the less, it made me aware that the double latch design is too simple. To be fair... he would not be able to open the latch from the inside of the cage. I have a cage (unknown mfg.) that I purchased some twenty years ago and still use... it also has a double latch, but they are connected by a double vertical rod that is spring loaded... it is more of a pain for me to open and lock but it is relatively dog proof.
Does the job
anthony from fairfield, CA
Has held up very well with daily usage. In fact, the top has turned into a table where we've put upwards of 40 lbs of stuff (I know it's not intended as such) and it's still going strong.
Heavy Duty and strong
Kay from Simpsonville, SC– Verified Buyer
I needed a larger crate for my growing German Shepherd puppy. She was able to escape from her the one that had been loaned to me. I looked at a number of different brands and decided to take a chance on this one. I am more than happy with the quality. It's a little heavy, but I needed that for her. For the price the quality exceeds what I was expecting.
Folding pet crate
Brian from VANCOUVER, WA– Verified Buyer
This is a reasonably nice folding pet crate. It collapses down well for transportation or storage. There are two wire "latches" that are supposed to hold the collapsed crate together, and I have a problem with these falling off, but it is not a serious problem. My dog loves the crate, but you should get a pad for the inside.
Great product especially for the price
Connie from Prospect Hill, NC– Verified Buyer
We needed a crate for when company comes to call. This is perfect, exactly what was described. Sturdy and actually pretty easy to assemble (would make me more inclined to take it down and only put it up when needed)....and not to heavy. Love the handles you can attach for easy moving. Really great buy for the price!
