I just am too much of a worrier to do 2 big dogs stacked. I know people do it though! My husband is working on building something for me prevent the sagging that happens when stacked. If sturdy enough, that would ease my mind on stacking two larger dogs and crates.
50 Best Large Dog Crates 2017 - Pet Life Today
When buying a pet crate, ensure that you do not indulge in an overly spacious model. Keep the large pet crate for bigger dogs. The space inside the crate for dogs should give your pooch enough room to move and turn around with ease. This means that, the pooch should not find himself hitting the sides or the top (ceiling of the crate). Basically it is important for your pet to be able to sit straight up without banging their head. Invest in folding dog cages where they can lay down on the surface with their paws stretched out. Take special care with small dog cage and puppy crates. Make sure that the crate does not end up cramping up your dog. The only way it will love their new “den” is if they seek natural comfort and don’t feel caged.

Choose a crate big enough for your dog to stand up and turn around in, and also to stretch out comfortably when he lies down. Make it inviting with a cushy bed. If your dog’s inclined to his bed, get a chew-resistant bed, give it some competition from safe, chewable toys, or use rags and old sheets that your dog can destroy without giving you an aneurysm. (Actual ingestion of cloth is a whole ’nother problem.)

This will help your housebreaking program, since your puppy has a natural tendency to want to avoid soiling his sleeping area. If you get a crate that’s too big, he’ll use one half as a bedroom and the other half as a bathroom. Not good.A crate need only be big enough for the dog to stand up, turn around and lie down comfortably. I like them to be just long enough for my dogs to stretch out on their sides to sleep. Growing puppies can be a problem when buying a crate. Not everyone can afford to buy a new one for each stage of growth but too large a crate can make a puppy harder to housebreak. Fortunately, dividers are available for some brands so you can shrink and expand the puppy's space as needed.
