Beautify Your Dog's Crate With This Simple Table Build

Not all pets need a crate, but in our case Buddy is a rescue. A family gave him up at 3 years old because of behavioral issues, and he came with a "7 Day Free Trial" -- which was very telling! He's a puppy mill puppy (with papers) and the crate, I was told, made him feel safe. Most of his "issues" are now completely gone! Our only complaint is that we couldn't use this corner for much more than the dog's crate, so we took matters into our own hands and created a little "house" inside of our home.
After: A Simple Table Build Makes Your Dog's Kennel a Usable Space
Prior to meeting him, I had rescued 23 pets (before my DIY days). But then, we met Buddy. His separation anxiety is VERY intense when we (namely, when I) leave the house. But it's getting much better.
Buddy's crate is medium size. He hangs out there when he "needs to get away from it all. Finally, we decided this corner needs more "function" -- plus we needed a place to store some of his chew toys, snacks and grooming supplies.

    He is well loved ..... It's always good for a dog, especially a rescue, to have a place where they feel safe and I agree .. 5 star!
