If you have a pet, most likely they are part of your own family. So generally speaking when you do things for your family you usually include the family canine, whether it be buying new clothes, going to the dr or the vet in your dogs case. So when your looking to make some home improvements, why not build your dog a new dog house?
There are all kinds of upgrades you can do to the dog house, to make it a great living play area for your dog. There are all kinds of dog house plans you can chose to build, some can look like mini mansions, wood houses, or even a brick home, the point is the ideas are endless.
One thing to keep in mind though, as many dogs get older, they can develop joint pain caused by arthritis, so you might not want to build a house with any kinds of steps, where they have to step up on. Unless you get a good anti inflammatory for dogs, there are many good supplements out that will help with your dogs joint pain, once you find a good one and your dog shows signs of improvement you can add on to that dog house and really customize it out.
