Dog Crate Sizing Guide

Just like you, your dog needs a place to live too and it cannot be just any random space, it has to be the most perfect crate.

Having a crate too small or too big is just not acceptable after all it’s your little one’s home and it needs to be cozy and comfortable. Finding crates is easy but finding the perfect size for your dog seems like an almost impossible task.

Here’s a little guide to finding the perfect sized home for your little doggo. Just find the one that fits your dog’s breed and size perfectly and order up, I’m sure you won’t regret it!


The Crate all-inclusive dog crate is the most versatile crate I’ve come across. Everything from its construction to size is made keeping in mind all kinds of dogs.

The crate has a free divider panel, durable dog tray, and 4 roller feet to protect the floor and roll about easily without strain. It even has large double doors to fit in dogs easily and give the illusion of a spacious home.

The floor is waterproof to prevent accidental messes and is constructed from ABS plastic which guarantees maximum comfort if not anything else! For safety, it has double durable heavy-duty side bolt latches so your dog cannot escape when in a mood either. It has a single door as well with 3 latches attached for maximum security.

The crate is available in 6 different sizes, actually 7 but the largest one is short in the market due to lack of demand. After all, big dogs aren’t exactly found everywhere these days, right?

Extra Large (XL) | 48 Inch in Length

This crate measures 48 x 30 x 33 inches which is the largest size available since the 52-inch one isn’t available due to shortage in the market. This large crate is the perfect resting solution for your extra-large furry friend.

It is meant for dogs that weigh 90 pounds or more for example an Akita. Dogs that are suitable for this crate type include; Afghan, Bloodhound, Briard, Bullmastiff, Rottweiler, German Shephard, and Old English Sheepdog.

If you have any of these big furry ol’ fellows and cannot find a home for them, why not consider the Midwest double door crate? You and your doggo will sure thank me later!

Large (L) | 42 Inches Long

Now this one’s meant for a tad bit smaller dogs – they’re still large but not all over the place. The dimensions for this size are 42 x 28 x 30 inches. Be sure to check them out by your dog before you go ahead and buy them.

Dogs that are meant for this crate are Labrador retriever, Chow-chow, Irish water spaniel and Irish setter, Australian Shephard, Border Collie, and Belgian sheepdogs. Even your cute dalmatians can rest inside this large crate.

These dogs and many more are yet to find the perfect home with the help of the Midwest double door crate, so what are you waiting for?

It’s time to find a crate for the Intermediate/ Large dogs now. These dogs are the most abundant as they are just the perfect size for house guarding as well as being the perfect furry friends. The crate designed for them measures a good 36 x 23 x 25 inches and weighs 22 pounds.

The dogs blessed enough to live in this large-sized heaven are Beagle, Bassel hound, Harrier, Bulldog, Bull Terrier, Cocker Spaniel, and the list goes on. Large dogs are my favorite because they’re just so big and cuddly and trustworthy. Which is why they should be treated with the utmost care and who cares better than Midwest?

It doesn’t matter the kind of dog you have, his comfort comes first which is why Midwest designed a crate for every size. This helps gives them maximum comfort while hanging about in their crate.

Medium | 30 Inches Long

Medium crates for medium-sized dogs are hard to come by since their size isn’t defined all that well. This is why for dogs like Basenji, Dachshund, French bulldogs, and similarly sized friends, this is the ideal crate.

The crate is sized around the dimensions of 30 x 19 x 21 inches and weighs merely 17 pounds. A medium-sized crate that weighs too much is just a no-no even if it has roller wheels like this one underneath.

Also, this is the perfect size to try out if you’re confused about whether your dog is one of the big boys or a small one. Just check whether your dog is one of the above or you could measure him and compare the dimensions just in case. Anyhow, I’m sure you’ll find the perfect size on this list today.

Small | 24 Inches in Length

It turns for the small dogs finally since we’ve had a pretty detailed division of the bigger ones. Your little ones deserve a comfortable home as much as your older ones. The safety locks on this little crate are spot-on so there’ll be zero chance of your dog escaping.

The dimensions of this little crate are 24 x 18 x 19 inches which is the perfect size for dogs like Chihuahuas, Pugs, Fox, Boston, and Norwich terriers, and my favorite ones, the miniature poodles. How adorable are these cute little dogs are you need a cute little home for them.

This is why the Midwest double door crate is the ultimate choice for all small dogs. Small dogs are just so adorable and they deserve nothing but the best and who to trust with such responsibility if not Midwest?
