The strongest heavy duty dog crates are the best possible tool for management of Canine Separation Anxiety and Noise Phobic dogs. Collapsible heavy duty dog crates mean that you no longer need to worry about getting the big heavy crate through your front door. Xtreme® crates mean no escapes, ever! These crates are constructed using field-tested designs and materials to contain the strongest of escape artist dogs.
Xtreme® heavy duty dog crates are constructed using field-tested designs from materials intended to contain the strongest of escape artist dogs. The materials together with the design make these crates indestructible!
I enjoy talking about the construction of these Collapsible Heavy Duty steel dog crates. They're unmatched in the industry for strength and durability. Made of 6 gauge welded wire over 16 gauge square tubing makes for the strongest steel crate to be found anywhere.

It is essential to understand that "the wire" used in these dog crates is not anything like the wire crates you have used or seen in the past. Many dog owners will look at these Xtreme crates and say to themselves: "Oh, that's a wire crate. My dog enjoys escaping from wire crates. He's already chewed through 3 wire crates." Nothing could be further from the truth. Your dog isn't getting out of these Xtreme® dog crates!
These crates are engineered to eliminate the possibility of breakage and escape. Your canine will not get out of this crate unless you let it out. Perhaps you're thinking "it's a wire crate - will it hold my dog?" Let's see how thick 6 gauge welded wire mesh is keeping in mind that 1/8th inch converts to decimal .125".
You can easily see that when 2 wires are welded together, we have more than a quarter inch of steel. The welded wire mesh is then welded to 16 gauge 1" metal uprights all around the crate. This design provides the Xtreme holding power that we are so proud of, holding strength unmatched in the industry.
Assembly is so easy with the Xtreme® design. Just line up the hinge parts on the panels and drop the pin. It couldn't be easier. Assembly of the top is even easier. Line the holes up, push the pin through and apply the keeper pin in the proper hole and you're done. Average assembly time is 5 minutes or less for the average person. Enjoy this short assembly video.
You're going to just love this door! For Houdini escape artist dogs, the door is the first order of business. Dogs will almost always work the door first. It doesn't matter what kind of dog crate they're in; they will always chew, push, pull or headbutt the door. This occurs on a regular basis until the dog is convinced that the door is not an escape route.
The conclusion is that the door needs to be perhaps the strongest part of the crate. It will require a door lock that will keep the door closed 100% of the time. Many dogs are clever. Many times they will find a way to unlock their crate door. Yes, it has been known to happen.
The Schlage brand is a household word. Schlage is a premier lock manufacturer. The company was founded in 1920 by Walter Schlage in San Francisco. Schlage is one of the most popular brands of consumer and commercial locks in the United States.
Xtreme chose to use a Schlage deadbolt to lock the front doors on their line of strongest escape proof & indestructible dog crates. There are tons of lower priced ways to keep a dog crate door closed. The manufacturer chose to use the strongest possible locking hardware to keep your crate door locked and your dog secure. This means that you can breathe easy when you're not at home. With the Schlage deadbolt locking mechanism, you know your dog will be in his or her crate when you get home.
The floor of this beautiful heavy duty dog crate is an 18 gauge galvanized pan approximately 1/2" deep. It is held in with a special swing arm on the bottom of the crate. This prevents your dog from kicking the tray out the front and destroying the carpet under the crate. The galvanizing helps keep the bottom looking good.
All of our standard sizes are done in a handsome Gray Hammertone color. We felt the Gray would be the best color for blending into most any home decor.
We know that some dog owners may wish to have a color more closely coordinated with their particular style and decor. We're offering a great selection of other colors. Please take into consideration that a color selection other than Gray will place your new crate into the "custom" category. Production time for custom crates is 14 calendar days. In case you're wondering, the pricing for the gloss colors is more because the metal requires lots of additional prep before the gloss color application. If you make no color selection you will receive our standard Gray textured color.
Just a few color samples which will not always look the same on all monitors. If you would like a custom color, just click below and choose your color. Please allow an extra week for custom colors. Thank you.
You can find the custom color chart here.

Here's a sample of our most recent custom crate. This Giant crate was made for a rescue agency. It was made to their specifications. It works for multiple dogs and giant breeds too.
Yes, it really is as big as it looks!
With over 8 years of experience in the heavy duty crate industry, the #1 question among dog owners that have to contend with Separation Anxiety and Noise Phobia in their beloved pet is: "what if my dog breaks out of this crate, what then?" That's understandable since their dog has escaped out of anywhere from 1 to 6 different "so-called" heavy duty dog crates before.
Life will be different at your house when you put your dog into a genuine heavy duty dog crate!
These first quality Xtreme® escape proof, indestructible heavy duty dog crates have a 10-year replacement warranty. We will replace any damaged part during the 10-year period for the original owner. These Xtreme crates were designed for extreme dogs, the kind of dogs that can bring the house down around you. Bring on your extreme dogs, exotic animals, and others. They won't be getting out of these heavy duty dog crates. The warranty does not cover occasional rust since it does not affect crate function.
Your new Xtreme heavy duty dog crate is as easy to take apart as it was to assemble. Whether it's for storage or travel, just a very few minutes and your crate completely disassembled. Whether you're headed to Grandma's house, your vacation home or just to the garage to store the crate, disassembly is quick and easy. Please remember to cover each piece to prevent scratches in the powder coating.
Our new strongest collapsible indestructible Super-Duty heavy duty dog crate is the ultimate escape-proof heavy duty dog crate. You can take this crate apart and take with you on holiday or that vacation or to Florida for the winter. It has everything you are looking for in a super-strong indestructible escape proof dog crate for your strong dog.
Nobody likes returns, right? Shipping costs for customer returns are very high. If you need to return a crate, you will be paying freight 3 times, the total of which will be more than you paid for your crate.
To get the length dimension simply measure nose to butt then add 2 to 4 inches for comfort. Always "roundup." It's not worth the risk to go smaller and hope your dog will fit.
Typically the width and height will be proportionate to the length. Once you know the length, you should be okay. But, if you have concerns about the height of the crate, just measure your dog in a sitting position. Measure from the floor, up the straight front legs to the top of his or her head. Then add inches for comfort.
Then there is the delay in solving your canine confinement problem while you wait for your new crate in the correct size. If you get a crate that is too small, just think of the freight back to the manufacturer then the freight to get the correct size to you. That totals freight being paid 3 times. The total will be more than you paid for the crate.
These indestructible heavy duty dog crates are made to order. The current lead time from order to shipping for standard sizes is 7 days or sooner. If your new crate is a "custom" order, then please allow 14 calendar days to produce and ship your new custom Xtreme heavy duty dog crate. Your new crate will ship via LTL Truck line. All tracking information will be advised. The trucking company will call you before delivery to set the delivery appointment. Someone over 18 years of age must be at the property to sign for your new heavy duty crate. Inspect your shipment. If you suspect damage, please note it on the carrier's paperwork. Take pictures of the package before you open it. If there is damage to the crate, let us know. Do not refuse the shipment.

The cage has worked out great and meets all of our needs. Zoey, a Belgian Malinois, is a big 8-month-old.
The attention to detail on the design and craftsmanship is excellent. We are very pleased with this purchase, as Zoey has destroyed or escaped from wire cages in the past.
Yes, it is a high price to pay but overall its an investment to secure our pet while we are away from home, which saves our furniture and keeps her safe.
She is huge and yes, if left alone in the house she has chewed on the furniture at my daughter's place. The cage is a huge blessing for our furniture and keeps her from hurting herself too. I have a husky (half the size of Zoey) too and they have
become best friends.

I love this crate! I can't say this enough times, really it was the answer to my Houdini dog problem. I have a 75-pound rescue pit bull that could get out of any crate I bought him. On top of this, he's claustrophobic so I had to buy crates that had room for him.
This is the only crate I've bought that he absolutely cannot get out of.
The crate is well built, solid (and I mean solid your dog will not be getting out on his or her own), my dog loves to hang out in it and it even looks pretty! I have peace of mind knowing my dog cannot escape this crate. The bottom pan doesn't move, so he can't force his way out of it :).
I love that it's heavy duty so not only can my dog not get out of it, but I'm going to have it for many years to come. This crate also has open slats that I can reach in and pet my dog or give him a cookie but he is still secure.
The door on this crate is exceptional, I can easily open and shut it and the latch is easy to lock. On top of all of this, the customer service I have received has been absolutely top notch. They went above and beyond to help me solve my crating issues. This is 100% the crate that will keep your dog secure.
My husband Robert recently worked with you on a crate for our dog, Frankie. Frankie has severe separation anxiety and is very destructive when left alone. She has been escaping crates since she was just 35#. Now she is 100#+. We gave up on crates for a while but then Frankie started eating everything in site.
Some of the notables are picture frames, colored pencils, unknown pieces of mail, socks, remote control, cell phone, several flip-flops, etc. When she finally chewed up a night light, bulb and all, we knew we had to do something extraordinary.
First, we got pet insurance, and then we ordered our crate from you. It has been easy to get her in the crate because she truly believes she’ll be able to get out. She can’t! So far, so good. We are cautiously optimistic that this crate is going to work out. Our friends are taking bets. She hasn’t calmed down in the crate yet, but she is a very determined dog, so I am hoping/thinking it’s just a matter of time. I would love to tell you that this dog loves the crate and everything is wonderful. She doesn’t like it, but it’s doing what it’s supposed to do, so far! That makes us happy because Frankie is safe.
Thank you so much! We will keep you updated!
Makensie from New York
Thank you for your testimonial update on Frankie. We have total confidence in the crate. Believe me, you have no worries about Frankie escaping. Please do let us know how it's going in a month or so. Thank you.
I have a 55 lb Shepherd that destroyed every dog kennel I put her in.
She is a high energy high anxiety dog. Every time she destroyed a kennel, I would spend even more money on what I thought was a stronger heavier duty built kennel from the last. Each time she would chew the steel bars, break welds, bend doors, rip out bolts etc... She is no joke when it comes to destroying a kennel! Not only did she destroy hundreds of dollars in Kennels but she also destroyed the house after she would escape. She has torn down our blinds, chewed up brand new expensive shoes, and the list could go on... She is a free dog that has literally cost us thousands because of this. That being said, She is amazing and worth every penny!
Thankfully X-Treme Dog Crates was our solution! I wish we had bought one much sooner.
First and foremost the owners of the company are amazing people. They are good communicators and they do what they say. No jerking you around. I'm lucky that I'm only 1 state away from them (6 hours away) and so I was able to get my crate very quickly. I ordered the crate on Monday and I had my crate Friday the same week by 1pm. My crate was made after my purchase and it was in my home in less than a week. The owners not only worked with me on shipping, but one of the owners personally drove 6 hours to my home for delivery. That is a 12-hour drive for him round trip. He called me and let me know he was an hour out from arriving. The best customer service you will find anywhere.
Once he arrived, he helped me bring in the crate and showed me how to assemble it.
As awesome as it was that he did this for me, it was totally unnecessary. This thing is so easy to assemble that somebody who is not mechanically inclined at all could do it without frustration. It's literally a slap together and pin it scenario. NO TOOLS are used to assemble. Once you put it together once, you won't forget. Not only that but you can take it apart and reassemble in about 2 minutes is my guess. I love that it’s made in the USA by hand and it all goes together precisely as it should!
The quality is 2nd to none! The quality of materials to the quality of craftsmanship, everything has been so well thought out... Every little detail has been thought of and addressed. Each and every weld is perfect! Nowhere is there anything that will hurt my dog. No burs, no small holes to catch my dogs claws. The door is tight and secure with no rattles. This crate is as sturdy as you can get. She loves that she can stick her nose out of the open slot above the door. The design of the crate really keeps her anxiety lower than all of her previous kennels. The smaller steel mesh is much thicker then the normal standard crates that most people buy. Dogs learn quickly not to mess with it. There’s no give at all and it's not going anywhere.
I'm so happy with this new crate! You could say that I'm X-Tremely pleased!
For the first time in months I can leave my home and feel comfortable knowing that my dog is ok. My home is not being destroyed. I have nothing to fix, and I don't have any surprise money draining out of my bank account. This crate will last forever through many dogs lifetimes and I am very happy with my purchase! It was worth every penny!

Well, he shredded his bed and chewed up his cone, but he did NOT break out of the crate! At last, something he can’t eat through.
Don’t let this sweet face fool you. Ozzy is half pit bull and has jaws like steel traps. He can chew through anything. He also suffers terribly from separation anxiety. He has ripped the doors off of crates and climbed over tall gates in order to get to us. Finally, we can leave the house with confidence knowing he is safe.
We were desperate to get our crate as soon as possible. Without it, we were basically being held hostage at home by the dog because we couldn’t leave him alone. Bill at CarryMyDog.com, was great. He answered all of my questions and made sure the crate was shipped to us as soon as possible.
One thing we really like about the Xtreme crate is that it is very open and tall. We know many dogs feel better when they are in an enclosed space, but Ozzy is the opposite. Closed, dark spaces make him very stressed. This crate gives him ample room and does not make him feel like he is in a prison. We are very happy with our purchase. It is costly, but not as expensive as replacing several crates or a couch.

Winston's X-TREME crate arrived today. Delivery was on time and contents in great condition (thanks in no small part to the handlers that packed the truck, and the perfectionist job you folks did at packing!)
I read through the pamphlet you sent in the card, and the crate was inspected and assembled in under 5 minutes! Not a paint scrape, single sharp burr, not a single sloppy weld, every hinge and bore aligned... excellent craftsmanship!
Now, Winston is rescued Bullmastiff x Amstaff, about 90 lbs, literally all muscle, and has fairly bad separation anxiety. He can bend and break bars, crack welds and pull off plates on other wire crates. Plastic doesnt stand a chance, he'll chew through in short order He has shredded 24 gauge aluminum plate, and bent 20 guage steel plate that i have used to reinforce other crates. He will escape, and chew off doorknobs and molding in an attempt to get out to find me, and has done alot of damage to his teeth in the process.
That said, I'm reasonably certain we will -never- have to purchase another crate, and -never- worry about escape or injury again. Thank you for making fabricating such a great product!
