Rate Your Home’s Barkitecture

Posted on

Dogs are family members, and, as dog parents, our homes always reflect this. Some, more than others.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how does your home’s "barkitecture" rate?

Give yourself one point for each:

  1. Leash hanger by the door
  2. Custom bed or couch
  3. Personal doggie shower area
  4. Swimming pool
  5. Toy bin
  6. TV on for your dog when you’re not home
  7. Custom doghouse
  8. Framed photos of your dog
  9. Custom food and water bowls
  10. Doggie door (bonus point if it's a Wall Entry Pet Door!)

How many of these did you check off? Let us know on Instagram or Facebook. We'd love to see pictures!



"I searched for months for the best dog doors for my new dog building. These doors with the tunneling wall look amazing & work exactly like they need to. They are secure & keep the heat or cool air in the building. Our Aussies adapted easily to the doors."
