Let's Begin By Defining Some Terms

Fold & Carry Style Homes - folds easily in seconds!
 

Epoxy Finish: Also referred to as “e-coat,” this black coating provides a beautiful long lasting finish.

Pans: All MIDWEST wire homes come with an easy-to-clean plastic pan.

Strength

MIDWEST provides the perfect home for every breed and temperament.

Light Duty: For new puppies that will be crate trained from the start and for breeds with a mild temperament.

Medium Duty: for older puppies and breeds with an average temperament.

Heavy Duty: for adult dogs that have never been crate trained and for active breeds.

Crates:

Single Door iCrate- 1500 Series   

The iCrate folding homes are designed for the price conscious pet owner. They have a black epoxy finish and matching black ABS plastic pans, which are held in the home by a “pan stop.” These doors are equipped with “slide bolt” latches for dependable security. These homes are constructed of thinner wire, with wider horizontal wire spacing. Although not included, carrying handles are available as accessories. The Better Buy folding homes are safe, secure and affordable.

Model Numbers: 1518, 1522, 1524, 1530, 1536, 1542 & 1548. 


 
Double Door iCrate  - 1500DD Series    

These homes offer the same conveniences and features as the single door model, and add the versatility of a full functioning second door on the right side panel. This door is great when using the home in a vehicle or anytime you have more space side to side than front to back.

These value priced Double Door homes include divider panels*, plastic carrying handles and black ABS plastic pans, which are held in the home by a “pan stop.” The doors are equipped with “slide bolt” latches for maximum security. They feature rounded corners on the door and the panels. The horizontal wires are spaced a bit closer together which produces a slightly tighter mesh spacing than the Better Buy folding homes.

Select - Triple Door Homes - 1300TD Series  

A step up from the iCrate and Life Stages, the Select Series takes security and convenience to the next level! The horizontal wires are closer together to provide tighter mesh spacing than most other pet homes on the market. The wire gauge (thickness) is also heavier. This provides extra strength, which makes the Select Series the choice for professional users as well as for owners of active breeds and adult dogs that have never been crate trained. In addition, the Select Series offers the following features not found on any other pet homes that will appeal to a wide range of pet owners.

Three (Removable) doors! Each Select Series pet home includes a door on the side and one on either end. What's special about the doors is that are all easily removable! This is a great feature for dogs that have already been crate trained...the door can be removed for easy access at any time, and the door isn't in the pet owner’s way. When placed lengthwise in a vehicle, the two end doors allow access to the dog though the hatch as well as the passenger compartment. With their multiple openings, Select pet homes can be placed in the most convenient location for the pet owner in any room regardless of configuration. Finally, with the included divider panel, Select Series pet homes can be divided in two to house 2 dogs with individual access to each one.

Like the Single and Double Door pet homes, every Select Series includes a divider panel, plastic carrying handles and black ABS plastic pan. The pan is held in place by a “pan stop.” The doors are equipped with “slide bolt” latches for maximum security. They feature rounded corners on the doors and panels.
