Considering building a doghouse in your backyard? Even a small pet shelter offers protection from hot summer sun and inclement weather. It also provides your pet with a comfortable place of his own to nap, lounge, and enjoy the great outdoors. A do-it-yourself doghouse doesn't have to cost a ton of money, either. You can design a doghouse from leftover building supplies or salvage materials. Make a one-of-a-kind retreat for your pet with a creative design, or choose one that coordinates with your home's exterior.
