My cousin just bought a desert house out near Ocotillo Wells, and for a house warming gift I am going to build him a doghouse for the backyard. There is plenty of rooom in the backyard, and there will always be 2-5 dogs out there, so I am thinking kinda bigger than a normal doghouse.What I need help with is what should I model it after? I built a doghouse for my dogs that is a replica of the workshop I want to build, but I wanted to do something creative for his dez house. Any ideas?

A castle, barn, replica of his house, the white house, the great sphinx??? No idea is a bad one! Thanks for the help guys

I have always wanted to make something like this for my dogs. One of these days I will. It would really help keep the temperature down in the summer months for my pups and nobody has a dog house like this.

I also thought a cave would be cool. Or maybe replicate the real house (just smaller) like Rob Dyrdek did for his mini horse. A google search resulted in some pics you may find inspiration from....It would be cool to have something that blended with the landscape and big enough and safe enough so kids can play in it too.

That last one is great.Thats actually what I have for my two shepards.I had a longbed shell leftover from when my truck got totaled so I turned it into their dog house.It sits in a corner of the yard against two walls and ontop of a bunch of milk crates .It even has the carpet kit in it for them.

Those are some great pictures! good ideas too, like the underground one that keeps the dog cool. I like the RV/Travel trailer one too lol, that one is funny. Maybe I will bring this old POS travel trailer I have on my property over there and put a dog door in it then call it a doghouse...kill two birds with once stone haha
