What Is A Dog Crate?
A dog crate is a metal, wire, plastic, or fabric enclosure with a door in which a dog may be kept for security or transportation. It’s a piece that you use at home to keep a puppy safe, most veterinarians, trainers, and breeders recommend crate training dogs from a young age. Crate training is an essential part of housebreaking puppies, as dogs don’t like to soil their sleeping quarters.

Is A Dog Crate A Good Idea?
Dogs who are crate trained feel comfortable and relaxed having a secure den-like space of their own. Some people feel that a dog would be sad in a crate, or think it’s like prison. But the truth is that most dogs who are left out of the crate are far more anxious and stressed out.

When To Avoid A Dog Crate?
Your dog should not be crated if he/she has separation anxiety or claustrophobia – crate confinement can exacerbate stress and emotional reactivity associated with being separated or in an enclosed space. This can lead to panic and frantic attempts to escape thus causing injury.
Where To Build In your Dog Crate?
A dog crate can be built into many furniture items that you already have: kitchen cabinets, console tables, desks, kitchen islands, cabinets in mudrooms and laundries (keep in mind that there can be smells of detergents, which isn’t good for a dog’s health). You can order such a cabinet with cage-like doors or a sliding door that will still match the rest of the cabinetry. As for the top of the furniture piece, if it’s a table, you may go for potted plants and other types of decor. Make the crate comfortable with a cushion or a pillow and let your dog try it out!
