Problem Solver – Pet Crate or End Table… Or Both?

Wood Dog Crate

Double Duty in Your Living Room – Dog Crate That Looks Like a Table

This is a problem solver that you probably never thought about before.

On one hand, if you have a new puppy, one of the things you absolutely must have is a crate.

Puppies just don’t know the rules of the house and what you consider ok and what is not ok.  The best way to deal with them is to get them a great crate and keep them crated when you’re not able to watch them.

This is also the fastest way to train them.

Of course, depending on the dog, you may need that crate for a longer period of time.  Some dogs quickly learn that it’s NOT ok to chew the pillows, jump on the counters, scratch the leather couch and pull down the shower curtain just because you aren’t around to stop them.

Some dogs don’t.

I’m pretty sure our evil new puppy Scout (the kid in the picture at the top of our site) will be in a crate f-o-r-e-v-e-r.  I’m the dog in the picture who is much wiser and well behaved.  I stopped having to live in a crate when the boss was gone when I was about 1.


One of the problems with dog crates is that depending on the size of your dog, they can be huge… and nobody really wants a big, wire box sitting in the middle of their living room.

The solution – wood dog crates that are made to look like tables.

These are relatively new to the pet industry, but have become wildly popular over the last few years.

People love them because it really is a dog crate, but it looks so much like a regular piece of furniture that it totally blends in with the other decor of your home.

If you need to find a crate for your dog that is functional, but looks fantastic, these are great options.
