Life Stages Folding Metal
Not only does our favorite dog crate come in a variety of sizes, but it also has a sturdy design that facilitates a safe, comfortable environment.
Easy to assemble and break down, this crate includes a divider panel, dog tray, and carrying handle plus roller feet to protect floors. It also comes with a 1-year warranty.
Some owners have found rough edges on the wire door that could potentially scratch your pet.
42-Inch Folding Dog/Cat
The BestPet wire cage rivals higher-priced brands. It’s an economical choice for pet owners and the best dog crate for well-trained dogs.
The crate tray is extremely easy to clean and the entire kennel can fold down in a few, quick steps.
This crate may be a bit too flimsy for larger dogs. The handle can also be difficult to latch at times.
Compass Plastic, Chrome Door
We recommend this crate for owners who like to take their pets with them when they travel.
Made in the USA, this crate features a 2-way door that opens on either side and has superior upper and lower ventilation that provides adequate air flow to your pet.
Assembly is slightly difficult and the crate may rattle during travel.
Heavy-Duty w/ 2 Doors & Metal Tray Pan
This dog crate is more durable than most, but it’s not as portable as other options.
Assembly is quick and easy and the overall structure is incredibly sturdy, according to many dog crate reviews.
Some dogs have reportedly escaped and gotten past the “heavy-duty” latches.
Large w/ Crate Cover
This crate definitely beats its competitors in terms of beauty. It’s the best dog crate for pets who like to hang out in the living room with their owners.
Made of high-quality material, this crate looks like a piece of attractive furniture and can double as an end table or nightstand.
It’s expensive, a little difficult to transport, and may not be as structurally sound as other crates.
