Is your pooch house hunting? You may be surprised by the variety of options available.
From the modern to the traditional, take a look at these out-of-the-box ideas for keeping your dog cozy.
The Hundehaus Alabama Dog House is a plantation-style mansion for your dog. On breezy, summer evenings your puppy can curl up on the columned front porch, sipping mint juleps, singing the spirituals of yesteryear. On rainier days, your dog can retreat within. Sure, there’s no working fireplace, radiated heat or electricity in this one, but your dog is a simple creature in this finer lifestyle.
The Frank Lloyd Ruff in your family will certainly enjoy this one. Hundehaus Cubix: The Modern Doghouse is a white-walled, red trim dog house with large windows and an interesting woof, er, roof. It’s large enough for a few dogs to share, leaving enough room for them to adorn its inner walls with their favorite modern art.
You are looking at the world’s most extravagant puppy palace owned by none other than Paris Hilton. The $325,000 doghouse is a mini version of Paris’ own mansion. The house is two stories, features a juliet balcony, clay tile roof, copper gutters, and custom light fixtures.
This Victorian-style doggie mansion cost a cool $20,000 to build. It’s home to three fabulous dogs, Chelsea, Darla, and Coco Puff. The home is a smaller version of the owner’s historic Victorian home. She commissioned the project after an owl almost kidnapped one of her Pomeranians. The structure is large enough that she can enter and visit her canine neighbors.
This is the Nomad Dog Home, part of Italian artist Marco Morosini’s “Dog is a God” series. (A concept in which this particular canine host wholeheartedly believes.) Each work in the series pays homage to a different aspect of doggie deification. This particular piece celebrates the traveling dog.
