Pet Gates Can Have More Than One Function

Everyone knows the old cliche "as curious as a cat," but if you are a dog owner then you know that a pooch can get in just as much trouble. Dogs are born to be explorers and not as limber or flexible as cats, they can still get in hard-to-reach places. Puppies require an even more watchful eye.

It's because of a dog's mischievous nature that owners need to take preventative measures to keep their homes and pets safe. If you live in a home that has small children, a staircase or expensive carpet, then you want to make every measure to keep your dogs within their boundaries.

For years, homeowners have utilized pet gates to keep their dogs in check. By installing a pet gate in your home, you allow your pet to roam free in one section of the house without having to worry about them getting injured, lost or causing a mess. Recently, Richell, the manufacturer of the most splendid gates on the market, has changed the way we look at pet gates.

From Pet Gate To Play Pen

For more than ten years, Richell has been making the best pet gates for homeowners who cared about style as much as safety. Since the company's inception, it has been making gates that have a unique touch of luxury that has never been seen in pet gates before. What sets the company's products apart from competitors is the high-end materials and innovative designs that are used in each gate. This makes every Richell pet gate have a truly custom look to it.

Recently, Pet Street Mall was lucky enough to stock some of their new gates that are getting dog owners very excited. By twisting around the design of one of their award winning six panel gates, the engineering minds at Richell's headquarters in Texas were able to come up with something truly original: a hybrid pet gate that doubles as a playpen. Check out the design below:

  • Six Panel Playpen: This is the pet gate that forever changed the way we look at panel models. The wide range of the panels and functionality of the design cannot be matched. What makes the six-panel gate so unique is that you can quickly turn it into a locking playpen with specially designed hook arrows that allow for various size and shape variations.

  • Four Panel Playpen: According to Richell, this pet gate is ideal for pet owners with narrower hallways or smaller breeds. Just like the six panel, this pet gate can be used as a gate or a playpen. The lockable gate provides security for your pooch while the durable material makes it suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

One of the reasons that these new pet gate/playpen hybrids are becoming so popular is because of the affordability. For less than the price of a high-end six panel pet gate, dog owners can purchase a four or six panel playpen that also doubles as a gate. So, when it's time for you to start making boundaries in your home, you can rest assured that you have the option to buy a pet gate that comes with an extra feature to keep your pooch cozy indoors or outdoors.
