This is for the 36x24x30.
Over all, I'd say it's the better way to go verses the playpen you fold-out on the floor. The puppies stay cleaner and you spend WAY less time cleaning up mess. I also like the adjustable floor grid you can move up and down for puppy size, and it's easier to pick up the puppies.
What I didn't like -
The wires on the side didn't line up right with the hook latches, so I had to have a REALLY strong person bend the side wires so I could latch the top door all the way. One of the handles for lifting was attached to the inside of the playpen, so I had to have that person also take that off and put it back on where it was suppose to go. The top door will fall into the pen and crush your puppies if you do not latch it first. I freaked out when it happened and my puppies were SCREAMING. The side door latch can be opened by the puppies inside the playpen, with the floor grid were it is they can't get to the bottom door latch. Thank goodness, or the side door would open and the puppies would fall out to the floor. You can't clean underneath the floor grid without opening the side door, so you have to take the puppies out or they will fall out.
If you take these things in mind and be careful what you do then it's a great product. I'm buying the next size up now because I decided this one was too small around for my Pug puppies once they reach a certain size.

i didnt see these before, i bought from manufacture.wow what a great crate! I breed chihuahuas, only problem is babies can get through wires, need them smaller on sides for the toy breeds,as a birthing pen.

The largest size, is virtually terrible to put up/take down, clean, move and get pups out of. It is just too big and not easily set up. Even with small miniature Dachshunds, I would order the 1 inch squared grates, as the slatted grates do not allow any feces to pass through, therefore, making the point of a puppy pen almost pointless. I am selling mine, and have replaced it with the smallest sized pen with the bigger-sized grates.

This playpen is just the right size for a larger toy litter (3X3)and it does not take up too much room. I like the floor inside the pen with newspaper and use it that way. Don't like the idea of pups learning to eliminate on the wire or having spread out feet. I have Toy poodles and Toy Fox Terriers and they are enjoying their pen.

Prefer the 1" grill which allows waste matter to fall through to pans below.
Do NOT like the opening UNDER the door when opened which allows dog to go UNDER the pen grill. This could so easily be correced.

This is the best thing i could have ever bought for my puppies! Mom, puppies, toys and bedding stay clean. It is so much easier to clean this pen. I was at first concerned that the grates would be too big for toy size puppies but they aren't they are nice and thick so the puppys' feet don't fall through. I am glad I found this pen and so are my dogs.

I am a breeder of Toy Dogs and love your pens not only for puppies but for my Show Dogs. Yorkies have long coats and cannot be dragging them on the floor or it will be damaged. My dogs each have their own crate which is more then sufficient room for sleeping and moving about when I am not home to let them out to run and exercise. The flooring keeps them clean as well. I always recommend these to other breeders every chance I get.

I am a breeder and I love your puppy playpen. My puppies stay a lot cleaner. Also, floor is adjustable, so I can put it down and use the side door for my larger puppies. Then I can raise the floor and let the top swing back and reach in for my smaller puppies. I even fixed a platform with locking wheels to set it on. This makes it easy to move and mop under. I LOVE IT

I have been using playpens for my dogs safety and night time containment for years. They are great. I know when I leave the house those dogs are safe. No way they can get out or hurt. Easy to clean and move. I use paper and inexpensive rugs on the grating. It is like their own little bedroom (with a lock).
The Midwest version is very well constructed and I like the door entry.

This is the greatest cage for puppies! In your home or in your kennel. The puppies stay clean because of the grate floor. Put paper in the bottom pan and thats all there is to it! Great for housebreaking, whelping, or just a safe place for your dogs. I would highly recommend this cage!

Very nice size, keeps your pet up of the floor. Great for older people we do not have to bend down. The grid floor is very easy to clean. The only thing that I wish they would do is add the tabs on the cage top,like the 36x36 size because the top like to fall inside the cage, and this could hurt your pet. I have add bracket to mine.
