To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The cage itself seems relatively sturdy but the box must have gotten a bit knocked around and the door ended up warping or bending out of shape a bit as one of the slide bolts simply would not move. So no point having a 2-door cage when one of the doors won't open! The other three bolts worked fine. The cage was shipped in the original cardboard box which has no additional padding or protection inside so I can see the panels getting damaged easily with any rough handling during transport. The box was designated as "heavy" requiring a 2-person team to deliver it but only one fellow dropped off mine. Disappointing overall and a very heavy item to lug back to a return shipping point.
Just when I thought it was no longer possible to purchase a heavier duty wire crate, I found this option on Amazon! The build reminds me of the wire crate of 20+ years ago. It may not be your first choice if you move it around a lot, but if you have a more feisty dog, it's a heavier gauge wire and they are closer together. I haven't been able to find this model in local pet stores.
This crate is well built and sturdy, with two locks on the door. It comes with a divider which is nice as it lets you make the crate smaller while they're a puppy and expand it as they grow bigger. The only downside is it's quite heavy but that's due to how well built it is.
I choose this crate because I wanted something that was solid and built to last - well this is it. I am very happy with it. The shipping was a little poor because of COVID backlogs, but that was not the fault of the company or the product. It is very heavy at 50lbs, and the packing is just cardboard so doesn't protect it as much as it could. Because of the poor handling by the shipping company there was a slight bend in the wire in 2 places, but it is built so strongly that it had no effect on the crate and we just bent them back. I would buy this again if I ever needed one, but this will last forever.
Totally pleased, so glad I spent a few more bucks to get the Ultima crate made with the heavier wire. Appreciate the divider which is great to make a sleeping space for my new beagle puppy ... I can adjust it and move it as he grows. He likes it too. Just remember to take your dog's collar off when you crate him. Not sure what kind of crate my nephew had but years ago he lost a beagle puppy to strangulation in a cage, wearing his collar overnight. The Ultima Pro is a nice product!
Love it overall except for one of the doors locking mechanism doesn’t align quite right so it makes it tricky to open and close whereas the other(the side ) is very easy. Overall seems great just the one issue
For the price of the crate I expected the quality control and workmanship to be better..I cut myself trying to fold the door with so many rough sharp edges and scratches throughout and on the door latch too. So concerned it could scratch my puppy and myself handling it daily so thinking of returning..sturdy crate though if you don’t mind getting cut
I don't normally write reviews for products but I am really impressed with this crate. The heavy gauge wire is better than anything you will find in the big box stores. It will be a bit heavier as a result but you can't expect quality without the weight. The door latches are really good too. Everything about this crate is top quality. I suppose if there was one criticism I wish that MidWest made a cover that fit this crate.
The crate itself is pretty sturdy but the quality isn’t high. Two of the clips for assembling the crate were bent such that they couldn’t be clipped in with the frame. The sliding latches on one door are installed crooked and are not aligned properly so that door is really hard to lock and unlock, eliminating a major feature of the crate. The divider panel had a severely bent attachment clip making it wobbly when installed.
