High Style Dog Houses

A designer picks dog houses with real aesthetic value.

Cubix by Hundehaus via Bestfriendshome.comLet's not fool ourselves – Fido doesn't care about the looks of his doghouse. These dog houses are styled for people, people who like beautiful homes and objects.  Although Fido won't necessarily understand the value of a living roof and modernist lines, you will, and that's what matters.

Classic log cabin: If a log cabin was good enough for our 16th President, it’s certainly a good choice for Fido. This cute and classic log cabin style dog house includes a front porch for catching rays.

Magis Modern Dog house: While “modern high-rise” isn’t the first thing one thinks of when it comes to the dog, this colorful dog house is fresh and stylish for both back yard and inside the house. This dog house comes complete with a set of “front steps” for puppies and pooches who may need a little boost.

Cubix by Hundehaus: In another nod to modernist design, the Cubix dog house pays direct homage to the Bauhaus school of modern design. This dog house is not only beautiful, but is also functional. It can accommodate both small or larger dogs and has a built-in drain on the roof and cleaning lids in the back. This dog house is designed to look like it’s floating over its base.

Modern Cabana: For a little touch of South Beach, the Modern Cabana dog house features a clean, nearly stark design that is softened by the round door and rooftop garden feature. Integrates with your back yard landscaping or bring it indoors for a little indoor/outdoor living.

Frank Lloyd Wright style: The Architectura pet house for dogs and cats pays homage to Frank Lloyd Wright. The house features slatted walls on two sides for good ventilation and lets your pet keep and eye on what’s going on outside.

Indoor/outdoor living doggie loft: The Habitat Staircase dog house has a great mix of indoor/outdoor living for your pooch. Small dogs will love the cozy little interior space, which measures about 22”x 31”x 16” high, as well as their own roof deck for lolling about in the sun. A fun accent on a back deck or patio.
