CarryMyDog.com sells this heavy duty XX Large crate for large dogs. These large crates offer 6 gauge welded steel wire construction. These large breed dog crates come with a 3-year replacement warranty. This is a giant crate that provides peace of mind for the large breed dog owner.
If you have any of the large breed dogs listed below, you may he having trouble finding a dog crate or dog kennel large enough and strong enough to hold your dog.
You can find a large dog cage at the big box pet store but the wire size is relatively small. These crates will not stand up to the dog that does not wish to be confined. Your giant breed dog will stay in the lightweight wire crates only as long as they accept their confinement. Once he or she decides it’s time to leave the crate they will simply walk out, chew out or push their way out of the big box pet store crate.
This crate will hold any pet you are strong enough to put inside it and more!
Here’s a list of the large or giant dog breeds. It is in no particular order and may not be complete.
Yes, most giant breed dog owners freely admit that their dog is as gentle as a baby. You often tell people he is a big baby. I was owned by a Great Dane during my younger years so I experienced this first hand. I do know that one swish of a Great Dane's tail will clear a coffee table.
That said, it doesn’t change the fact that they want what they want. While I did not crate my dog, many dog owners need to crate their dogs since they are away so often.
Peace of mind, it’s just that simple. These crates are usually used for separation anxiety dogs. In the case of a giant breed dog, this crate will allow you to prevent the enevitable escape from your dog's current light duty crate. Restating the obvious let me say again, large breed dogs all need a crate like this for their own safety and the preservation of your home and its contents.
First we take 6 gauge welded steel wire mesh and weld it to 1 ¼” square steel tube for the frame and now you have panel as strong as a solid steel wall.
The conversion chart here shows that 6 gauge wire converted to inches is .1620 inches. I’m no engineer but I do know that .125” is 1/8th of an inch. So, 6 gauge wire is slightly over 1/8” thick. When you put two 6 gauge wires together there is plenty of wire for spot welding. The result is a good, deep and solid weld. This is the major contributor to the strength of this crate.
Every metal component is galvanized. This means it is rust resistant and will maintain its good looks for years to come.
The crate door is typically the weakest part of a crate. When I say weakest I mean that your dog will always try to escape through the door first.
This giant crate door is made of the same material as the rest of the crate, 6 gauge welded steel wire fastened to 1 ¼” steel tubing. The sliding door lock is simple yet effective. We have a backup safety lock opportunity as well. Holes are provided for a padlock or carabineer. This assures dog owners that if your dog should break the sliding lock, the padlock will absolutely prevent the door from opening. Once you see the sliding door lock you will understand why it won’t be broken but the backup holes are there just for additional security. The sliding door lock is a $60 option.
Our standard size crates are found here. All other sizes are custom sizes. This giant heavy duty dog crate is a custom size. What does that mean to you? It is a bit more expensive due to special production requirement, materials and time involved. Any custom item takes more time to build.
It is not returnable because it is a custom item built especially for you and your dog.
Some more good news about custom crates: We will build any size you want! All our custom size crates show the same pride in workmanship and materials as do our standard sizes.

Your new giant dog crate is covered by a manufacturer’s replacement warranty for the first 3 years to the original purchaser. The slogan goes “If your dog breaks it, we replace it.”
Why would a manufacturer put such a long warranty on a product? The answer is simple: because we know your dog can’t break this crate.
Your new crate will arrive via tractor-trailer. It will be strapped to a pallet. The truck will need to park in front of your home. If that is a problem, you will need to tell the trucking company when they call to set up the delivery appointment. If a lift gate is needed please know that it is not covered in the $100 freight charge. It will be additional. It would be best to line up a couple of people to assist in the off loading and moving of the crate. We suggest you have a pair of tin snips available for cutting the straps holding the crate to the pallet.
The giant heavy duty dog crate is much larger than standard doorways. Most giant breed dog owners I’ve spoken to keep their crates in the garage or basement. Since this crate is so large you must know, before ordering, how you will get the crate into your home then into its final location. Remember: as we said previously, custom crates are not returnable?
UPDATE: These indestructible heavy duty dog crates are made to order. Current lead time is 2 weeks to build the product and another week for shipping. Your new crate will ship via LTL Truck line and by rail. The travel time could be slightly shorter depending on your location.
We do not ship heavy duty dog crates internationally. If you are in Canada and need one of these very special indestructible crates we will be happy to ship it to an address supplied by you in a USA border town. You can pick your crate up there and take it home.
NOTE: The main image for this crate is our standard size 48 x 30 x 33" crate. A photo of the giant breed crate is not available since they are all custom sizes. Photos are only available for our standard sizes. I mention this to confirm that your giant breed crate will be much larger than the photo.
“In order to offer a product with the highest level of resistance to corrosion from pet urine and water, The HEAVY-DUTY Collapsible Crate features an all galvanized steel frame. Due to the process of manufacturing, it is required that we apply a cold-galvanization to the welded portion of our products, which we then paint over lightly with an acrylic paint. This process is non-toxic. It will extend the life of our products by adding additional protection from corrosion. As a result of our manufacturing process, you may detect the presence of a fine oil or grease, and you may find that initially, the painted finish may rub off. If this does occur, we recommend that you wash the product with soap and water for best results.”
