Remember when sending your husband to the doghouse was a punishment for bad behavior? These days, it actually might be a relaxing mini-vacation instead because of all the great new dog houses on the market. Many are really expensive and made for the stars, but some of the simpler ones can easily be redesigned and remade for a weekend project.
This house is great for those who like the architecture south of the border.
Think your dog would make a great president? This dog house is a great choice. It is specifically made for the toy dog and easily fits inside your home. The White House style in this picture is one of the more simple designs that is easier on the budget.
For those (like me) who enjoy the classic Victorian style, this is a perfect option. Even if you don’t have a dog, this would also make a great play house for children.
As you can see, this dog house is one that Paris Hilton uses. (Another picture is featured at the top).
As you can see, this design is also one of the more simple designs that can be re-done as a fun, mid-price-range project. Although you can make it as big or small as you'd like, this specific design would suit a smaller dog the best.
This is one of the dog houses that requires a very big yard in order to benefit from all the technology included (there are many great options included, like CCTV). As you can see, it is almost as big as the trees in the background. I would describe this one as a piece of art in and of itself. Even if you can’t afford this one or don’t have the room in your backyard, it is always fun to look at or be inspired by.
This new age design (fully pictured below) is one of the most expensive dog houses on the market- one that originated from a designer in Tokyo.
Here are a few examples of homes that are traditional human homes, transformed into dog houses. The designs are more simple, yet can be a great additional feature to help you increase how much you sell your property for if you do decide to sell.
This dog house specifically is a little more high end- costing around $10,500.
If your looking for that brick house look, this is the perfect option.
With these two designs, a wilderness theme is perfect. So, if you have many acres of property and want to pamper your pooch, these houses would fit the bill. The best part is that both of these designs also make a great outdoor play area for kids.
This specific doghouse has a little more of a classic feel to it, but it also reminds me of a house that you’d find on the prairie. What do you think?
Vote on your favorite design and look or just let me know what you think of expensive dog houses good enough to live in.
