We Tested This Super Fancy, Actually Good-Looking Dog Crate—And It’s Totally Worth the Hype
If you’ve recently added a pup to your family, then you’re probably thinking about crate training. While some dog owners prefer not to invest in a crate at all, others use a crate for house training purposes and travel. Many dogs like having a nice little enclosed space to sleep in too, making a crate a beneficial tool for both you and your pupper. The only problem? Most crates aren’t exactly… aesthetically pleasing. They’re also pretty bulky, which can be a major issue for apartment dwellers. Enter Diggs. The brand makes smart, stylish, easy-to-use pet products, and we got to test their award-winning dog crate for ourselves.

The Revol crate stands out for its seriously smart design—not only is it sturdy and durable, but it’s also collapsible so you can store it away when not in use. It has two doors and three access points, including a ceiling hatch that lets you attend to your pup without dealing with the inconvenience of side doors. It’s also easy to clean, thanks to the removable bottom tray, and the ergonomic doors have safe locks on them that won’t pinch. And of course, it’s seriously good-looking. It’s currently available in one color (with more in the works), and even the steel mesh wire sides look better than most crates.
AT’s Chief Finance Officer, Phil Vuong, and his pup Riley got to test out the Revol, and reported overall positive feedback. The main benefit, according to Phil, is how easy it is to set up—and how well-built it is. “It feels sturdier than our former crate, and the materials are definitely nicer,” confirms Phil. “Riley took to it very quickly and seems to love it!”
“It has a very simple setup, although I will say that it’s pretty heavy and the wheels are small, so it’s not the easiest thing to move.” If you don’t travel often though, “It’s a way better space-saver than traditional crates, and the folding mechanism is super helpful.” There’s no doubt that the Revol is a game changer for those of us with pets in small spaces, not only because it’s easy to hide away, but also because it’s not an eyesore and blends in a bit better than other crates.
The biggest con, of course, is the price. Starting at $375 for the smallest size, the Revol is much more expensive than traditional crates — it is, however, worth it if you travel a lot or really need a small-space solution.
