When you live with a basset hound, somehow they seem to end up taking over your entire house. Another post got me to thinking about this, so I thought I would share a few of the ways I have customised my home to make life with my dogs easier. If you like some of these ideas, by all means go ahead and use them.

Here are two pictures of my built in trash and dog food containers that keep the dogs out of both the trash, and the dog food. Works very well.





This next picture is of our Dog Center. We built this because my wife wanted a place to set stuff when she was cooking. Because this was the area where we fed our dogs, we built this to allow different height dogs to drink/ eat comfortably and yet have the house looking clean and neat. Dog treats and leashes are in the bins behind the bowls. This works great as well.



Finally this picture shows the tree house I built in my dog kennel. The beagle loved to get on top of his dog house and bark. So I built him this tree house that is 8 feet high. He is no longer with us, but Kenworth, our basset hound, spends hours up there as he loves the outside!



The last thing I made was a dogwalk that goes from the house to the kennel. I don't have a picture of this, but it is covered with a roof so that my dogs don't have to walk through the lots of snow we get here in Maine. In the summer we let the dog door stay open and they go in and out of their kennel as they please.

Well that's my "Dog House". As you can see, my dogs are very spoiled.

Thanks for all the kind words. I've really worked hard to make my home dog friendly and since they never seem to want to go outside anymore, I guess I have done that.

As for selling my ideas...I'll gladly give them to my Basset Hound online friend's for free! If you like them, go ahead and use them.
