Darwin loves his crates; it's just part of his personality. So, they are here to stay long term, it seems. We thought they'd be more temporary, so just got metal and plastic ones when he was a pup. We'd like to upgrade to the type that looks like furniture, ie an end table, but has a "secret" crate, so that the crates are not so obvious. Does anyone use one that they can recommend?

Chris, one thing you need to consider: when he is in his crate, can he see you?  The family?  You want to be sure he still can with one of these, he may not like it otherwise, so would not use it.

Another thing to think about is access: which way does he go in and out?  I don't know if the pups get picky about that or not.

I actually researched the furniture crates about a month ago when I saw an ad about them.  Most are closed on the ends and the ones that are not run around $500.   I decided to use the metal crate I have with fabric draped over it!  Laugh and Bounce
The furniture would be nice tho.  Good luck searching.  Kay

I also drape fabric over the cages but the furniture ones are a good idea.

The only thing that I do not like about the furnture crates is that they look hot- not a lot of circulation except in the front.  My friend bought a crate that was the plastic wicker and it is very nice lookngi.  She has some wicker in her liiving room and this looks like an end table.    She got it at HOme Goods and it was less thatn $100.  Z sleeps in a crate for now and I made the mattress and bumper guards and also a cover to put over it. I used minky for the covers.    Certainly not living room presentable, but it is nice in the bedroom.

I was browsing online and discovered PetsMart has a major sale on and the crate / tables are part of the sale. Today is the last day of the sale.

The stuff is marked down quite a bit, PLUS shipping on $60 or more is free (all these are over that price, though one is just $90!) PLUS you get $10 off an online order. I checked, yes the $10 DOES come off these sale prices.

Just thought I'd let folks know!

Here is the link, for the crate / table.  The small size is $80 but I can not find the sizing!!!  All it says is small for up to 20 pounds pet.  Medium up to 50 pounds, large up to 100 pounds.  There are 2 reviews, person with small dog very happy, person with large dog very UNhappy.

I did a Google search, just put in the name of it and found it on Amazon with the dimensions.   Size small is:

Product Dimensions: 23.6 x 18.1 x 22 inches ; 22 pounds

Here is the link to Amazon -- just go up and change the size setting then scroll back down and it will show the dimensions for medium and for large.

http://www.amazon.com/New-Age-Pet-Habitat-InnPlace/dp/B00519LNV0

Medium:  Product Dimensions: 29.5 x 21.1 x 25.5 inches ; 30 pounds

Large:  Product Dimensions: 35.4 x 24 x 28 inches ; 39 pounds


There is also an x-small on Amazon, and an X-Large on Wayfair.com  http://www.wayfair.com/New-Age-Pet-Habitat-%E2%80%98n-Home%E2%84%A2-InnPlace%E2%84%A2-Dog-Crate-EHHC101-NEW1061.html

So, you really need to read all the reviews.  Apparently the dogs can quickly and easily break this to get out.  If your dog is crate trained, and not left in it all day while you are at work, seems folks like it.

I wouldn't worry about Darwin jail breaking at all. We have before not even latched his crate and he doesn't come out until 'let' him out. Sometimes, we have to actually pull him out!

OMGosh, can't believe this, just went on craigslist prior to shutting down and someone in RI is selling a LARGE one for $50!!!  She does say her puppy chewed it and has photos to show the chewed bars.
