Think Outside The Box... Errr Cage

Cage or crate training a pooch can be one of the biggest hardships when owning a dog. Whether you are trying to get them acclimated to their own den or if you're trying to keep your home safe from curious paws while you are at work, Crate training your dog can take some serious work.

Unfortunately, there is another downside to putting your dog inside a cage. Aside from the yips and whines after you lock them in, you also have to deal with an aesthetic problem.

Since we live in a society that places so much value in style and class, it can be a downer to see your living room tainted by the presence of a boorish metal dog cage. For years, pet owners have relied on the durability, usefulness and affordability of standard dog cages, however their cold design has left amateur interior designers wanting more.

Finally, a handful of high-end pet manufacturers have put the wheels in motion to innovate the dog cage. By using the same sort of craftsmanship reserved for extravagant furniture makers, pet companies have been able to produce a full lineup of cages that actually add to the splendor of a room.

Different Materials For a Different Age

For years, cold steel and aluminum were the only options for pet owners who wanted to crate train their pooches. Not only does this cell-like environment seem like punishment for a pup, it can also bring down the vibe and spirit of a house that you work to feel welcoming.

What sets the latest dog cages apart from the older models is the material used. Whether you're looking for a cage that uses wicker, wood or a soft plush material, there are now stylish options for homeowners that want a cage with out the "cage feel."
