MY PUPPY CUT HER SNOUT WHILE INSIDE THE CRATE. I CHECKED INSIDE TO SEE WHAT MIGHT HAVE CUT HER AND FOUND THAT ALMOST ALL OF THE WELDS HAD EXTREMELY SHARP EDGES. EACH AND EVERY WELD WOULD HAVE TO BE FILED DOWN. THIS CRATE IS MADE IN CHINA AND THE WORKMANSHIP IS VERY POOR. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE ONE OF THESE CRATES IT WOULD BEHOOVE YOU TO CHECK THE WELDS ALONG THE BOTTOM OF THE CAGE AND ESPECIALLY AROUND THE OPENING OF THE DOORS. IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR PET,DO NOT BUY THIS CRATE.I AM RETURNING MINE.Midwest iCrate Double-Door Folding Metal Dog Crate, 42 Inches by 28 Inches by 30 Inches

We purchased the 42" crate for our lab puppy. The crate was very affordable and easy to assemble. The tray liner is durable and easy to clean. I also really like the divider which allows you to make the crate smaller for a puppy and expand it as the dog grows. My biggest complaint is that I wish it was a little more sturdy. The wires are pretty thin and somewhat flexible. Our puppy was able to break out several times by pushing out the top of the door or between the roof and back panel. We have had to reinforce the crate with zip ties and attach extra hooks to the doors so that our little Houdini stays put.

This crate is BY FAR the easiest I've ever assembled; it takes about 1 minute. Shipping was fast and my puppy loves her new crate. It is fairly lightweight but still very sturdy. Originally I had purchased the 48 inch crate and while it seemed fine it was just too big. I was told that because the error was my fault that they would refund my money minus the cost to ship it back to them via UPS (which was $26). I was pleasantly surprised and very happy to find that they refunded my entire purchase price and did NOT charge me to send the original crate back.I don't think I'll need another crate anytime soon but would definitely recommend using this company to someone else.

I am pleased with the size, but I found setting up the crate was a test of strength. It doesn't seem to match up too well...almost it is a tad short which makes it harder to get it to fit properly. The best thing was the fact that the price was a bargain over the larger pet stores.

Bought this for my 22ish pound new pup - Carin Terrier / Corgi. Was fairly easy to put together. Not as sturdy as some I've seen, but she doesn't get too crazy in it, so it works for us. I bought a snap'y fit water and feed bowl to put her treats in while encouraging her to go into the crate. Plenty of room for her to stand up and turn around. There are little wheel like things on the bottom that make it easy to move around.

42x30 is huge. Bigger than you might think. But for $60, you might as well give your pup that little bit of extra space. Similar products are sold elsewhere for upwards of $100.I received my crate in the factory box, with a divider, and plastic pan to go underneath (in case of accidents). The divider is great if you have a new puppy and expect him to grow big enough to occupy the full cage. You don't want to give him/her too much space too soon for fear that the find a space to use the bathroom inside.The double door also helps. It allows you to position the crate any way you want and still have complete access to your pup.
