Rated 4 out of 5 by DavisMarcy Not as pictured
I think the product pictured and described is the Midwest Select Series crate. In that series, crates have three doors, and the doors are removable. In the Ultima Pro series, crate have two doors (one front, one side), and the doors are not removable.That makes the Ultima a little less flexible (in terms of room placement) and heavier.
The Ultima seems sturdier than the Select, though I'm a little skeptical that the bolts for the doors are long enough to keep a determined dog in the crate. We'll see. I've only just set the crate up today.

Rated 2 out of 5 by texas13 Did not work for me
This crate was simple enough to put together (although the directions were horrible). Mine was broken in two places when we finally got it together.
PetsMart was great about the return, and I exchanged it for the Top Paws brand. Equal quality, not broken, and less expensive.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DogloverWV Large but NOT sturdy or secure
We have an 80 pound Great Pyrenees mix with separation anxiety so we bought the XL size. The size was perfect for our pup BUT he was able to escape the first time we put him in it (we were only gone 2 hrs). We then used 12 carabiners to try and secure the crate. He was able to bend the bottom of the door and get out again. We've finally ended up using about 25 zip ties to hold the seams and extra doors. This is working well and makes the crate more secure but we still have to use FOUR caribiners to secure the door we use so he won't get out. He was also able to demolish the plastic pan within a week. We purchased a one inch sheet of sanded wood and had it cut to size for the bottom of the crate and that has helped. Over all if you have a big, strong dog this crate will work but only with modifications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stormskeeper Seems like a great crate
We have only had our lab puppy for 1 week but have been very happy with this crate so far. It is sturdy and well made. The divider works perfect so that the crate will grow with our puppy.
