Finding a crate for Great Danes these days is almost impossible and many of the vendors I've known for years have even stopped carrying them! Seems "there's just no demand for such giant crates."! Well you and I beg to differ owning Danes ;)
TIP: Crate sizing information is towards the bottom of this page :)
I present to you the last few and absolute best sources I know of for these hard to find crates, dividers & crate accessories! I've also added some honest information & details to save you the trouble of running around the web.
Both crates are manufactured by a company called "Midwest" and are a proper size crate for Great Danes. The main difference is the door configuration. Both models are very similar yet one has a single door and the other a double.
Best Seller & Hard to Find Midwest Model 1154U Single Door
Midwest's single door crate is less than $150-dollars plus shipping and the PVC pan is optional!
Why is that exciting? Why waste money on a pan if your Dane is already house broken or you're crating an adult, or a rescue that's potty trained?
You can also section off a crate for your puppy with a Crate Divider Panel and remove it when your dog grows! Shipping at this great site is always low with delivery time just a few days!

Midwest Crate Specifications
These Midwest Crates are HUGE! The single door crate is 54"L x 35"W x 45"H and the double door 54"L x 37"W x 45"H. They are both appropriate size for our Great Danes!

- Use safe and secure slide bolt latches for door closure.

Obviously the crate is too big for proper potty training, you will have to section it off to the appropriate size for your puppy. Crate dividers are available here and fit both the 1154U & SL54DD! You can also section-off the dog crates yourself using some cut plywood or other material.
No sense in wasting money on a variety of puppy crates, Danes grow too rapidly. This is definitely a crate for Great Danes that your little puppy will "grow into":)
How To Size a Dog Crate
A general rule for crate sizing is, measure your dog (or estimate if it's still a puppy), from chest to base of tail, and again to top of shoulders. Take the measurements and add 4 to 6-inches to each, this is the desirable crate size.
Understand that the final size of a full grown Dane will vary and is most noticeable between males and females. Those of you with smaller Great Danes may be able to go down one size.
Many Great Dane owners eliminate the crate all together once their pups are fully house trained. This includes being over the destructive chewing and teething periods. The choice is yours and is based on your individual needs.
If you intend to continue crating your dog once it matures, a puppy crate like Midwest's is the way to go and will save you money over the long haul. Those of you who will only use the crate through the potty training and house breaking phases should choose a smaller model.
