Good, better, best: Dog crates that are also great side tables

There’s no denying that pet parenthood comes with a lot, and we mean a lot, of changes in your home. Especially if you’re crate training your dog, you’ll need a dedicated space to belong to your pet — toys, food, bed, and all. But now, decorating for your dog is a whole lot cuter. Dog crate side tables are here to change the game.

With a dog crate table that has multiple functions, you’ll use (and save) space like never before. Even if you use the tabletop for decoration rather than storage, it’ll add a stylish flair to your bedroom or living room. Here are a few of our favorites:

Good: Ginny Pet Crate by Archie & Oscar

This classic yet modern recycled wood crate is everything your pet needs for a relaxing space all their own, but you’re going to love it too. With four color options to match any style space, it’s just as cute as it is practical. The environmentally friendly material is also rust, odor, rot, and crack-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about your pet’s safety or your wallet’s distress — no replacements needed! Even pups who like to chew will have to work on it for a while before they can do any damage.

The best news? This adorable side table starts at only $109 for the small size, which is a steal for high-quality furniture like this. Don’t forget that it’s dual-purpose, too. Score!

Why we like it:

  • Comes in a variety of color options
  • Made from environmentally friendly material
  • Resistant to rust, odor, rot and cracks

Better: Richell Accent Corner Pet Crate

Yes, you read that correctly—this crate fits in the corner of any room or furniture set up. The triangular shape does make it less ideal for larger dogs, but pups up to about 17 pounds can fit in the smaller size, while dogs up to 45 pounds will be comfy in size medium. Consider this the perfect small-space dog crate, especially since it’s a table as well!

This space-saving crate is fashioned with a rubberwood base and sturdy, antique-style mesh doors, so you know you’re getting both style and quality with your purchase. The space inside the crate is breathable and roomy, with space on the floor to add your pup’s favorite mat or blanket. It’ll make this cozy little corner feel just like home.

Why we like it:

  • Fits easily into the corner of any room
  • Great for smaller dogs
  • Antique-style doors add to your decor

Best: unipaws Pet Crate End Table with Cushion

The ultimate two-in-one dog crate is finally here. This adorable, timeless end table is also a wood and wire crate for your pup to lounge in style — it even comes with its own removable cushion for your pet’s comfort.

Although the crate’s bars are metal to keep your dog as secure as possible, the sturdy external wooden frame ties the ideas of “dog crate” and “end table” together seamlessly. The scalloped frame around the crate’s double doors adds a touch of elegance and softness, as well. With a spacious, cozy spot for your pup and its cute look, this crate and end table combo is perfect for nearly any home.

Why we like it:

  • Comes with a removable cushion
  • Scalloped frame adds elegance
  • Wood and metal mesh well for a design that’s functional yet stylish

Whatever your style may be, there’s an attractive dog crate somewhere out there that’s meant especially for your home. And even better news — there’s an adorable dog crate side table for every budget, too! With this simple home addition, your pup will have a space that’s all their own, but your space will stay yours, too. And who said cute couldn’t be functional?

All pet parents worry about their fur baby’s well-being -- that's normal! Knowing your pup is safe and content is a gift that keeps on giving, but finding ways to achieve this is a different story. Luckily, many families have found dog crate training to be a wonderful way to make this peace of mind a reality. Whether you’d like to give your dog a reassuring retreat from loud sounds and stress, or you want to leave him unsupervised for a while, trying crate training couldn’t hurt! But first things first: Is crate training right for you and your dog?

What is crate training? What purpose does it serve for a dog and their family?
When you crate train a dog, you teach him to associate his crate with safety and security. The hope is that the crate becomes the place to go when your pup feels overwhelmed or sleepy. A lot of owners who crate-train want their dog to sleep there at night, while others do so to reinforce potty training — or just for safety reasons. Sometimes you may need to take your dog with you in the car, and a crate will keep him confined and comfortable, which benefits you both.
Whatever the reason you’re considering crate training, it’s important to look at the whole picture before jumping into a big change like this. Crate training requires dedication and patience from you as well, so make sure you’re committed to the practice — and the upkeep — of this new behavior.

You don’t want to pick just any place to care for your precious pup, though, so it’s important to ask a few questions before letting your guard down.

Should I board my dog?
Before finding the perfect dog boarding location, you’ll need to decide if this is even the route for you. Well, for your dog, really. There may be more to consider than you realize.
