1. Casual Home Solid Wood Pet Crate End Table

Quick Summary

Rated by: Amber

This wooden crate doubles up as an end teble so is a great alternative to a metal cage, as it can be incorporated into your home as an actual piece of furniture. However, because it only comes in one choice of color, it may not necessarily fit in with the interior style of your home. The Casual Home Solid Wood Pet Crete End Table is made from the sustainable Hevea wood so has a good ethical and environmental footprint.

The lacquered finish on the Casual Home Solid Wood Pet Crete End Table makes for a product that is smooth to the touch and looks juts like a piece of high end furniture. It features a door at the front with wooden bars and a latch that allows for your pet dog to be kept securely inside of the wooden dog crate. The wooden bars go all around the crate and thus provide your dog with a full view of the surrounding area.

The many vents that the Casual Home Solid Wood Pet Crete End Teble has keeps your pet dog well ventilated whenever they are in it. Because this is a high quality product, it is super sturdy and highly durable. At its tallest, the crate is 24 inches high and so will accommodate most breeds of dog and there is enough space in size to accommodate a bed. At the price point it is marketed at, it is much more affordable than many other similar wooden crates.

Because the bars that the feature on the Casual Home Solid Wood Pet Crete End Table are made out of wood, they can be easily chewed at and even broken by a badly behaved dog. Similarly, the metal latch that is on the front door is not that strong and will fail to keep a highly aggressive dog contained inside of the wooden dog crate end table.

PROS

  • Made from a sustainable wood
  • Looks like a high end piece of furniture
  • Provides lots of ventilation

CONS

  • Wooden bars can be chewed
  • Latch not strong enough to contain aggressive dogs

Quick Summary

Rated by: Amber

The stylish dark brown finish creates a sophisticated aesthetic that will fit in with most interior styles. To make the Merry Products Cage/Crate easy to clean, it comes with a plastic tray that can be easily removed. A divider is included with the crate, which is useful for when you are training puppies.

However, all of this comes with an expensive price tag, which may out off some dag owners who are on a budget. Because the top of the wooden frame can be removed, it can also be easily knocked off by your dag by accident should it get too boisterous. This is also true of the entire wooden frame surrounding the cage. This is because, on whole, the Merry Products Cage/Crate lacks any real sturdiness.
