    New, Stylish Crate Covers Make Metal Dog Crates Attractive

    CHARLESTON, SC – Locally based Dog House Properties, LLC launches a pet product to make metal dog crates attractive and compliment the interior design of most homes. In addition, the product reduces anxiety, barking, and stress during crate training, while making the crate aesthetically pleasing in the home.

    Dog House Properties LLC, who also owns, has developed Doghouse Covers; stylish crate covers for metal dog crates inspired from the most popular colors and patterns found in major home design magazines.

    Research shows crates (also known as kennels) are an effective way to assist with dog training, serve as a safe haven for the pet at home or when traveling, and also prevent or rectify problems associated with destructive behavior. By nature, dogs are “den” animals and covering a crate can alleviate anxiety, barking, and stress during the early training years. As a result, pet owners initially purchase metal crates to train dogs, and do not realize that dogs build an attachment to their crate. Allowing a dog to maintain its crate throughout its entire life can help a pet live a longer, happier life.

    Creator behind Doghouse Covers Rebecca Suarez says, “We realize the benefits of covering a dog crate, but often ignore how it can detract from even the most professionally designed homes. Many pet owners spend a lot of money on the look and design of their home. Doghouse Covers were developed as an attractive and affordable way to transform the training crate into a long-term stylish bedroom for your dog, in addition to matching the décor of most homes.”

    Doghouse Covers will be available in 3 different styles and are easily machine washable. The covers will fit dog crates from 22”-49”in Length and fit the majority of dog crates on the market including Midwest, Precision, Four Paws, Petmate, and more. Suarez adds, “Our crate cover serves many purposes. It can assist Real Estate Agents in covering chunky dog crates during showings, hide crates while entertaining guests during parties, double as a coffee or end table, and yet, still provide a comforting space for the family dog.”

    Doghouse Covers has enlisted Nexsen Pruet Adams Kleemeier, LLC in Charleston, SC to prepare and file the design patent. The patent is currently pending. Suarez says, “What makes our crate cover unique is the ability to easily roll up and tie off any side of the cover when the dog is inside the crate. When entertaining, you can roll all sides of the cover completely down and zip it up so the metal crate is out of sight. Most importantly, the 3 different styles compliment sophisticated or everyday home decor.”

    Beginning early December, the dog crate covers can be purchased online at or locally at Three Dog Bakery downtown (430 King St. Charleston, SC 29403). The covers will retail from $36.00-$69.99 and will come in 6 different sizes, ranging from XS-XXL.

    In addition, any purchases made on by November 25, 2007 can receive 10% off by entering coupon Launch2007 during checkout. The covers will ship in time for Christmas.

    Dustin Guthrie, owner of Three Dog Bakery, says “Until now, pet owners have not had an appealing option for covering metal crates. It’s time to take the old blankets and towels off your dog’s crate and cover it with one of these classic styles. With the Holidays right around the corner, Doghouse Covers will make great gifts for any pet owner.”
