If you want a puppy and need a way to train the dog, crate training is one of the most effective methods. If you already own dogs and are looking for a crate that will work as a nighttime den or a place for them to cozy up in when they feel like it, the Casual Home 600-44 Pet Crate End Table is perfect. It does not take up any extra space like a regular crate would and it can keep your home décor from being interrupted.
This piece of furniture comes in espresso and white. It also comes in two sizes 24 inches and 27 inches. This review is of the 24-inch crate only but they are made from the same material and require the same degree of assembly. The 27-inch crate is good for dogs up to 38-inches long. This one is for dogs up to 20-inches long.
The crate is an attractive end table. You can add a cushion for the bottom if your dog wants it as the crate does not come with one. My dogs do not seem to be bothered without one. They enjoy going into their own safe, private space from time to time.
Each crate is made of hevea wood. This is a sustainable material that comes close to mimicking natural wood. At first, I thought this furniture crate was a weird idea. But I have used travel crates in the past when necessary with my dogs. This one is a permanent fixture and it does not get in the way of the flow of the room. Plus, the dogs seem to feel more comfortable in this spacious crate.
Of course, you need to be sure to buy the correct size so that the dog has enough room to turn around in. My dogs never hated going in the travel crate when necessary but they were made of plastic and just didn’t have a good feel to them. At least, that was my impression.
The bottom does not pull out which some owners do not like. That is a good feature to have on crates in case of accidents, but most grown dogs will not mess up the area in which they sleep. If you are using this to train a puppy, however, I’d make sure to be aware of this. You can simply line it with a potty pad instead.
If you prefer to give your dog total control over using the crate when he wants, you can leave the door off the crate when you go to assemble it. My dogs just love being able to relax in their own space, and they take turns using it but I think I will be buying a second one soon. They really are excellent end tables.
This is a unique product and really enhances the life of you and your dogs. It works as a training crate or as a permanent bed. The best place to buy it is Amazon and I think it is available on other online retail websites, too. I hope this Casual Home 600-44 Pet Crate End Table review helps.
