Crates are not pretty. Nor are they very cozy.  But for many of us, they are part and parcel of raising a puppy or young dog.  

Many Labs are not de-crated at night until around their second birthday.  And a full grown Lab needs a big crate. Two years is a long time to have a large and rather ugly contraption dominating your home. And many pet parents look for ways to make their crate more 'den like' so that their puppy will feel safe inside.  

We have been collecting ideas and inspiration on our Pinterest page for hiding, disguising, and otherwise prettying up our dog crates. And even for building pretty home made crates or indoor kennels from scratch. 

Some of the ideas require a bit of DIY knowledge, some are more advanced projects, some are expensive and some can be purchased for a few dollars. Check them out and let us know what you think.  

Pinterest is a brilliant place to look for inspiration for home and lifestyle products and projects. But if Pinterest isn't your thing, here's a link to our dog crate covers review, and to a collection on The Labrador Site of a few of our own favorite crate covers.
