Lots of dog specialists tout the merits of training your pet to stay in a crate when you’re out of the house or even when Fido is going to bed for the night. Not only can it keep them out of trouble, but it gives your dogs a special hide-y-hole that reminds them of a den in the ground. That said, most crates are eye sores, not exactly the type of thing you want to display in your living room, especially if you’re into entertaining.
This hand-built “canine cabinet” is an exception. It incorporates a dog crate into a shelving unit in a clever way. Most people won’t even notice the canine portion until they see Fido stroll inside.
The Canine Cabinet is the work of woodworker “Relic Farm Tables” on Etsy:
The base is pine with custom wood grills for air flow. The base is finished with our Black Rub Custom Distressed look. The top is Solid Pine that is over 1 inch thick. It is finished in our special 3 part blend of stains to give it an old look. This Canine Cabinet is our Large model and can fit dogs up to 80 pounds or two smaller dogs.”
The price tag is $1745 (plus $200 for shipping).
