According to this article, "Doghouse design tends to be popular with architects and homebuilders who sometimes refer to it as 'barkitecture' and donate their creations to charity auctions that raise money for animal shelters." But nonetheless, the $5,000-$25,000 that owners typically spend on a specially designed dog house for their best furry friend, gives new meaning to the term "In the Dog House"-what creature, two or four-legged, wouldn't want to be banished to one of these stylish homes?
What do you think? If you had the extra cash, would you spend it on a designer dog house? Like Hugo's parents acknowledged (see photo above), "It's hard to get a dog to love the doghouse...he'd rather be in our bed."
