Top 10 Designer Dog Houses
Most dog owners have a weak spot when it comes to their cute canines, pampering them with organic kibble and expensive sweaters — after all, who can say no to puppy eyes? Whether it means splurging on doggy massages, pet spa days or designer dog houses, if you’re anything like us at House & Home, you’ll do just about anything for your pet. While many of these luxuries verge on silly, a puppy palace with beautiful “barkitecture” is one doggy indulgence we can really get behind.
From a mini $25K mansion to a pint-sized puppy caravan, your pooch won’t mind setting up camp in a dog house if they’re as nice as one of these designer digs.
