More and more dog owners, particularly those with young puppies are crate training their new family members. It is widely understood that crates provide a fantastic way of giving your puppy a safe space where they feel comfortable and secure.
Unfortunately having a bare metal crate in the middle of your living space is not particularly pretty. So we solved the problem!
The simple Chester crate housing is based on the design of our classic Amberley collection, so it looks beautiful and can be finished in any of our standard or special colours to match perfectly with your other painted furniture and blend seamlessly into your interior scheme.
Shown here is the simple housing which could be the better solution if you need a large or extra large crate, but depending upon the space you have available you can add drawers or cupboards for extra storage (just be mindful of the overall dimensions!).
Sustainable and Future Proof
If or when your dog no longer needs a crate then you can just as easily remove the crate and install a suitable dog bed.
Remember however that your Chester crate, like all of our furniture, is built right here in the uk and therefore, if you wanted to be really smart, you could send the crate housing back to us at a later date and we could convert it into a really useful piece, by adding doors, drawers, shelves or any other storage options you fancy. (If Chester grows out of this one it will make a fantastic office cupboard!)
How Do I Get The Correct Size?
We are aware of course that the sizes of dog crates from different shops and brands will be slightly different, but we had to start somwhere! Our standard sizes (Ex-Small to Ex-Large) are based on the Two Door Dog Crate from Pets at Home.
If you have a crate from a different brand or supplier thats not a problem, we will bespoke build your crate housing to suit the specific dimensions of your crate. Simply select the Chester crate housing which is the closest size to your crate. When we recieve your order one of the team will call you to confirm a few key measurements so we can build the best fit possible.
This chart shows the crate dimensions and overall dimensions of the standard Chester crate housing:
Please check carefully that your chosen crate housing will fit into your house, UK Standard widths for external doors are generally, but not always, 813mm (32 inches), 838mm (33 inches), and 914mm (36 inches) so if you want a Large or EX Large housing it is worth checking and remeber that any internal doors could be narrower.
All Crates are Custom Built To Order and you'll understand that as such they are non-returnable.
