Your Furry Friend
A dog is a man’s best friend. In St. Petersburg, as in many other dog-friendly cities, there’s a whole wide world out there begging for your dog to sit up and take notice; from dog parks to pet friendly retail establishments.
Your furry, loyal friend deserves all the love and attention you throw his way. Homemade dog biscuits, organic grain-free kibble, and so many squeaky toys, are just a few of the ways you show your dog how much he or she means to you. But where do you make him live?
Doghouses today are no longer just a way to keep Fido or Fluffy out of the elements: the doghouse of the modern world is an architectural work of art.
Safe and Secure
A dog house in Florida must, at very least, be practical. Its functions should include:
- Wind Protection
- Rain Protection
Make sure that any materials or paints used are non-toxic. Dogs will be dogs; let the worst damage of a teething canine be some doghouse construction, not a trip to the vet!
Security with Style
Of course, many homeowners are looking to go a step up from the generic dog house. Although a room that enables your pooch to turn around and settle in, is really all your dog needs (canines, by nature, are den animals and prefer a cozier abode), imagine the possibilities and fun of a little embellishment….
Modern dog house design is the art of combining function and flair. There’s a whole enterprise built on creating breathtaking dog houses that outshine any of your pooch’s pals.
If you’d like to add a little pizzazz to the doghouse in your care, start your creative juices flowing with these thoughts:
- Match architectural designs – is your home a modular home? A modern marvel? Does it have gables or a gambrel roof? Maybe a skylight or two? Make your dog house a mini-me that is a tiny model of your home’s exterior!
- Give the Pooch a porch – Is it necessary? No. Is it adorable? Yes. Give your doghouse a facelift with a little shaded patio so your pup can look around the yard while laying in the shade.
- Provide the Furnishings! – There is something to be said for…a soft bed to lay on…fresh water inside…possibly even a divided room for two dogs to have their own spaces?
- Match colors – At very least, paint the doghouse a matching or complementary color to your home. Instead of looking like an afterthought, your dog’s home will seem to belong.
