Answer:
No, it has not. I received the 36x23x25 intermediate crate today (2/22/2019) and the edges are definitely sharp. In the past two years, I have ordered two of the higher end MidWest Ultima Pro crates and neither had sharp edges. I wish that I purchased another Pro but I needed something lighter, cheaper for a growing pu… see more No, it has not.

Answer:
I have large male cardigan corgis, who are the same proportion as a full sized standard dachsund (because cardigans were bred from dachsunds), yet the corgis are much bigger in body and head.

They fit quite happily in the medium 30" long crate. There are charts on the internet with recommendations plus ways to measure your pup. Basically, you want them to be able to lay down flat and comfortably with room to spare above their head (this does not count the "sploot" position as corgi owners call it, where their back legs protrude straight out behind them in back, thus extending their overall length about 10". Has to be a normal laying position with head up). That's a medium sized crate for most. It's nice to have extra headroom for when they are standing, but I'm pretty sure a dachsund can stand up. You could go larger with the 36" and accommodate the sploot and as others have said, give him room to turn around, but the corgis do fine with the 30-31" length. see less I have large male cardigan corgis, who are the same proportion as a full sized standard dachsund (because cardigans were bred from dachsunds), yet the corgis are much bigger in body and head.

Answer:
It's ideal for my 65 lb. rangey mutt, taller and longer than most boxers. He has enough height and enough room to lie down and to turn around. Something to consider is the size and weight for storage. This folded 36" crate is pretty heavy and unwieldy at about 25 lbs. with a soft mat included.

Answer:
I am not exactly sure but I would think its cheaper because it is not the secure lock model. My puppy was able to easily jiggle the door and escape. I ended up buying a more expensive model that has a much more secure locking mechanism.

Answer:
As others have said, the configuration of the two doors is as shown in the pictures which renders the middle partition somewhat useless. However, with a set of pliers and about 10 minutes of work, you can swap the two end pieces and have doors that access both sides. If you bend back the 4 retaining loops on the bott… see more As others have said, the configuration of the two doors is as shown in the pictures which renders the middle partition somewhat useless. However, with a set of pliers and about 10 minutes of work, you can swap the two end pieces and have doors that access both sides. If you bend back the 4 retaining loops on the bottom of both end pieces with some pliers and swap the two ends, the end piece with the door will then be separated from the side access door. With the partition approximately in the middle, you then have room for 2 dogs with separate access. One partition is larger than the other due to the width of the side door, and in my case, I ran the partition slightly diagonally to make them more even. Hope this helps! see less As others have said, the configuration of the two doors is as shown in the pictures which renders the middle partition somewhat useless.

Answer:
The divider is wide enough to insert into both sides, you probably have to rotate it. However, there is a small gap between the roof of the crate and the divider.

Answer:
Our puppy is a strong chewer and he hasn't chewed through the crate, he tries but no damage. It's a 1 year warranty and I would have to say, their customer service is great. All I needed to do was email them and they got back to me right away. Highly recommend this product.
