We get plenty of questions about the difference between the three types of Midwest Life Stages dog crates. Let's start by listing the three different models.
• Midwest Life Stages
• Midwest Life Stages DD
• Midwest Life Stages Ultima
Now we'll look at the similarities. They are all folding wire dog crates that fold "suitcase style" for easy carrying and include a carrying handle. Each Life Stages crate comes with a divider panel and an ABS plastic pan and are available in sizes 24, 30, 36, 42 and 48 inches for dogs 11 - 110 lbs. The series number is is Midwest Life Stages LS16XX and the last two digits represent the size of the crate. For example, a 36 inch Life Stages crate has three variations:
• Life Stages LS1636
• Life Stages LS1636DD
• Life Stages Ultima LS1636UL
Life Stages and Life Stages DD
The Life Stages and Life Stages DD are very similar in that they are both medium duty folding crates with a black, electro-coat finish. The primary difference is that the Life Stages crate has a door on one end and the Life Stages DD crate has an additional door on the side. The extra door provides a great deal of flexibility in crate placement. The crate can be place sideways between two pieces of furniture and the side door can be used as the primary door to the crate, or the crate can be placed in the back of your SUV to keep your dog safe while traveling.
Life Stages Ultima
The Life Stages Ultima is a heavy duty three door dog crate and it comes in a handsome silver galvanized finish. It offers you the ultimate in flexibility and safety for your dog.
So - it's quite simple really, and now you know you can check out more details and photographs here:
