And, for my Dogs, I was sparing NO expense. It was to mimic ALL the comforts of home during the most intolerable weather conditions. Two weeks later, My "Luxurious" Upscale Dog House was Created.
A similar dilemma occured 3 years later, when a friend had approached me: He too had shopped heavily for a Decent Dog House and came up empty handed. I had agreed to build him a Dog House (upper left corner of this site) at cost. Much like myself, he is a true pet lover and spared "no attribute" for his Dog:
Internal measurements: 4ftH x 4ftW x 5ftL.
External Measurements: 8ftH x 5.5ftW x 6.5ft L
Solid 2x4 framing
Sealed wood siding
Window with screen
Insulated floor Ceiling and Walls
Internal, External Light
Human access Panel
You name it.
At about the time of completion, my friends Dog died. Leaving me with an Exceptionally Large (to say the least) Dog House, that needed to be sold (I wanted my money back). As unique as this structure was, I felt I was faced with a difficult task: To my surprize, It sold within 2 weeks at my asking price once displayed at a local auctioneer.
Today, we are a small "High End" Dog House Manufacturer located in Annandale, Minnesota. We cater to both business and consumer concerns (within the United States). We Build, Sell and Market High End, Dog Houses, to order, (Including size and amenities) nationwide. We have sold our Dog Houses at Auctions, On the Internet, From fliers hung up in grocery stores, etc. We even obtained a contract from a local retailer to display and sell our product (on consignment) at their facility. We have been in the local news an newspapers.
Some people question the "Need" to own such a sophisticated Dog House for their Pooch? If you are wondering the same thing, I recommend you go to http://www.jimboshoundhosues.com for our answer.
I invite you to check out the Dog House Market yourself. then \revisit our site. I am sure you will
find (as we did) that a "Suitable" Dog House of High Quality and Full Functionality is hard to come
And yes, from time to time, I still do build a Dog House or 2 in my Garage, on my own.!!
