I love the way it is paintable. So, I painted before putting them together. The color looks perfect. However, the floor parts are not very stable since they have no screws to hold them together. So, it is a bit movable. That's why, when my dog went inside for the first time, she felt a bit of moving and rushed out from the dog house immediately. She has never stepped inside again even with her favorite food or toy put inside.
Instructions are fairly clear but some of the pre-drilled holes are useless and won’t hold including one of the “feet” and two on the roof. Plus while the middle section of the floor has bottom support the two side sections do not so with weight there is sagging and certainly opportunity for pinched paws. For this price I was expecting something more sturdy.
This house lasted 3 days before the entire bottom fell out. The material was not sturdy and the wood felt flimsy. I really wanted to like this but I just feel like I wasted money as I can't send it back or get a refund for it.
I got the large size for my Lab puppy that I get to bring home in a week. This was so easy to put together! I had my mom hold the pieces for me and I was able to put it together very fast with no problems. This will be the perfect size for my pup as she gets older and seems like it will hold up well in this Florida weather. I plan on painting it I will definitely be adding some protection on it to help with all the rain we get.
Our pups started enjoying their new large dog house immediately after we finished assembling it! We put their pillows in and they walked right in and snuggled up for a nap. We have two smaller side dogs (20 lb each) and this fits both of them comfortably without having to snuggle up. Will definitely be painting it before it goes outside as the wood feels like it wouldn’t last long without protection. Love that it’s up off the ground so it shouldn’t rot too quickly and will last longer!
It’s not really worth the price it has the cheap wood and the bottom doesn’t really have support. It’s beautiful but it wouldn’t buy again.
The most difficulty I had was it being a little too heavy for me when trying to put together. Other than that is a great house. My dog is 50 pounds and he’s fits comfortably. When summer comes he’ll probably use it more but so far good. Great quality!
I have purchased several dog houses made in this style. I must admit this is the best doghouse I have ever purchased. It is built with strong material; the top is made of material that will not leak. It is very sturdy I cannot say enough about this doghouse. If I could have given it ten stars I would have. The price was great. I have three small dogs and they fit in perfect. I really love this doghouse. You will not go wrong by purchasing it.
We painted this with matching paint for our house, and it looks so cute on our porch! I even added house numbers and an LED battery lamp to match our porch light, and it looks custom made. Super easy to assemble, and big enough for our 70 lb lab.
My dog loves to hang out outside. And he will stand in the rain just so he can watch the cars go by. This has been perfect for him. We have had some major rainstorms since putting this together and the inside has stayed totally dry. I was also super worried that it would be hard to put together but we had it set up in just a minutes. And my daughter also really enjoyed spray painting the house.
