Heavy duty dog crates need to safely contain the biggest and feistiest of dogs. They also need to be escape proof for the wily escape artists among us! Safety always comes first, so it’s best to spend what you need on a crate that doesn’t have rough edges and that won’t come apart on your pet.
That being said, there is enough of a selection to provide for just about everyone and their circumstances. Whether you have a teacup magician that somehow gets out of every crate or a burly Mastiff that destroys all he encounter there are heavy duty dog crates that should meet all of your requirements.
The Heavy Duty Dog Crate from mpet is forged from 20 gauge steel with reinforced 1/2” steel tubes. Touted by the manufacturer as “commercial quality” they claim it is the sturdiest cage and specifically made with the powerful dog in mind. Four removable wheels are included for easy transport as well a floor grate and removable tray for cleaning.
The Diamond Deluxe Aluminum Dog Crate is nearly fully enclosed and may be best suited for the dog that gets anxious.
