Frank Lloyd Wright is the architectural genius behind countless numbers of well known projects. But what isn’t well known is the fact that FLW once designed a dog house for a 12-year-old boy’s black Labrador named Eddie. The boy was the son of Richard Berger, a client of Wright’s. At the time FLW was designing the Richard Berger House of San Anselmo, CA. The boy wrote a personal letter to Wright asking if he would add on the dog house that he would personally fund from his bike route. Wright agreed and the “canis domus” above was built.

Denver-based architect Andrew Wright needed a house for his Australian Shepherd that was sturdy enough to protect her from the harsh Winter elements.

Fortunately, for all of you DIY’ers out there, Andrew’s Savannah Cabannah plans and building instructions are available for purchase.

Miller Pet Products has come up with the idea to help keep dogs cool in the summer and warm in the winter even when outside. Made of 20% recycled materials and designed to be mostly underground, this eco-friendly dog house uses the Earth’s own temperature control system to heat and cool a special space for your dog. According to Miller Pet Products, the shell is “indestructible,” leak-proof, UV resistant, chew-proof, and comes with a lifetime warranty. Plus, with it partially buried, you won’t miss too much of your precious back yard space.
