Midwest Life Stages Training and Travel Crates

Midwest Life Stages Dog Crate Folding Sequence
Life Stages Crates Fold Without Tools!

This crate is sturdy and durable when erected, but folds easily without tools.

So, How Does it Fold?

The process sounds a lot more complicated in print. When you receive your Life Stages dog crate, you'll find the folding sequence is simplicity itself. The ABS plastic pan stays in place, but the divider panel must be removed for your Life Stages crate to fold.

Assemble

Un-clip the clips that keep the crate from folding back up, lift the top of the crate straight up, fold up the front and back (the short sides) of the crate, clip them in place and ... that's it!

Fold

Un-clip and collapse the font and back and then the Midwest Life Stages Crate folds down onto itself, and the clips hold it securely together.

Carry

With the included carrying handles you can carry it "suitcase style" allowing you to move your dog crate.

Boxed and Shipped to Your Door!

Because we stock our products, you don't have to worry about driving from store to store looking for the right size. And because these crates fold down so neatly, they fit right into a box that UPS will deliver to your door.

Life Stages Crates Adjust to Your Growing Dog

Which Size to Get?

Midwest Life Stages Crates are available in 6" length increments. As the crate models get longer, they also get wider and taller, so the different sized crates are designed for different sizes and breeds of dog. Remember: Because of the divider panel, you only need one crate from puppy to adult, so buy your crate for the expected size of your adult dog.

How Are the Various Life Stages Models Named?

The smallest crate is 24" long and the Life Stages series is called the "1600"series. So, the Life Stages crate that is 30" long is called model LS-1630 - "LS" for "Life Stages". They are then available in single, double door (DD), or Ultima triple door (UL) format. E.g. LS-1630DD is a Double Door Life Stages Crate 30" in Length, suitable for a dog 26 - 40 lbs.

If you would like to size your crate based on your dog breed, that's a much longer list and can be found at the bottom of the page. See our Life Stages Dog Breed Size Guide.

Includes FREE Divider Panel!


Life Stages Crate Showing Divider Panel in Use

The crate includes a Free Divider Panel which allows you to adjust the size of the living area as your puppy grows.

This is important because it prevents your puppy from eliminating in one end of the crate and sleeping in the other. As you can see - the "Puppy" in the picture above is housed in an area made smaller by the crate divider. Your crate literally grows with your pet. So, theDivider Panel Saves Money!

Some recommend you buy a variety of crates as the dog grows, but with the divider panel, one crate is good for your dog from puppy to adult, this is why it is called a Midwest Life Stages Training and Travel Dog Crate!

Life Stages Dog Crate Corner

Safety Rounded Corners

Life Stages crates are designed with great attention to detail. The corners are rounded for your safety which means no sharp edges, making it safer for you and your family (the two and four-legged kind!)



How Many Doors to Get?

So you've figured out how big the crate needs to be, but now you are thinking about the configuration of the crate door(s). Since the Midwest Life Stages Dog Crate is available in three configurations, it can be confusing as to which model to get. Read on - we'll do our best to help!

Single Door

The Life Stages Single Door Folding Dog Crate is the biggest seller and most people are happy with this configuration. It has a door on one end, and when we say "end" we mean the shorter of the vertical sides. So, as you look at the end of the crate with the door, it is hinged on the left and opens outwards. The primary advantage of this crate is that it is a little less expensive than a two door model. Tell me more about: Life Stages Single Door Dog Crate.

Double Door

The Life Stages Double Door Folding Dog Crate is the next biggest seller and has a door on one end just like the single door crate. If you view the crate from the end with the door, it also has a door on the long side to your right, allowing side entry to the crate. This door also hinges on the left and opens outwards. Due to the extra door, the double door model is a little more expensive than the single door, but is more flexible. Instead of having to access the end of the crate, you can access one end or one side. This allows the crate to be placed sideways between two pieces of furniture, or side on in the back of your wagon or SUV. Tell me more about: Life Stages Double Door Dog Crate.

Ultima Triple Door (Obsolete)

The Life Stages Ultima Triple Door Folding Dog Crate is both heavier duty and three door. Just like the double door crate, it has a door on one end and a door on one side that both hinge on the left. The triple door crate also has a door on the other end that hinges to the right allowing even more flexibility in how you place your crate. The advantages of the triple door crate is that it has more access and is heavier duty. In addition, if you have multiple dogs, you can get a crate large enough for both and use the divider panel to separate the dogs. Because of the door on each end, the crate can be a home to two dogs.
