Dog is regarded as the best friend of Human. Some people treat those four-legged friends as their family members, eat together, sleep together. I can totally understand that, since sometime I share my bed with my puppy. But some designs of Dog House presented below is far away beyond my acceptance, which is the reason I called it “Incredible Design”
The Pet House of the Future (with a web cam) [link]
The house is air-conditioned & heated using newly developed state of the art ‘thermo-electric’ technology with temperature ranges from a cool 17°C up to a summery 30°C. Built-in humidifiers ensures that the living and sleeping environment remains at a constant and pleasant humidity. All these features, including the LED lights, are controlled via a remote.
It gets even more bewildering and just plain weird…A WI FI Web Cam is built into each home that enables people to view their pet and other pets 24/7 worldwide via the internet. I mean what is better than watching dogs sleep and it is about time for canines to star in their own reality show. Apparently, this house works for both dog and cat. Hi-tech pet house.

Sustainable Pet Design offers customized eco-friendly Greenroof Animal Homes made mostly of non degradable red cedar wood. The roof of the house doubles as a mini garden. Customization of the homes include size, colour, design and plant choice.

According to Interior Designer Michelle Pollak, “Available amenities include running water, lighting, air conditioning and heat”. A building consultant will be done prior to construction. The consult encompasses details such as; breed of pet, style of house, budget, characteristics of the pet and for the allergy sensitive pet, appropriate building materials will be incorporated. In addition, architectural preferences and landscape are reviewed closely, in order to compliment the main house and grounds. Even the windows and doors are custom built to provide adequate utilization and functionality. The dog home can also be built as a complete replica of the pet owners main home.
The Zen House [link]
Personally, I think it is the most practical design in today’s post.The ZenHaus is a sophisticated modern designer dog crate. Besides its sleek and streamlined design, the ZenHaus also doubles as a sleek end table. It is topped with a opaque shatterproof glass, that also enables light to come in from the top. The vents on the side, creates excellent ventilation for your dog.
One Jackson Square Dog House [link]
This dog house is designed as a tribute to architect, William Pedersen’s glass luxury condo building, One Jackson Square in New York. The one-off designer dog house was auctioned off to support the Animal Medical Center of New York in 2008, bidding started at $15 000. According to Pedersen, the structure resembles a nautilus shell and the planted roof makes for a harmonious and eco-friendly environment.
Luxury Crystal Dog Home [link]
This dog house is made with 7,600 Swarovski crystals and is large enough to fit a chihuahua or a small terrier. This home might not have air-conditioning or a built in WI FI Cam, but one thing is for sure, it has the perfect feng shui, considering all the crystals used. This canine crystal palace retails for approximately $31 600. This one hold the record for the world’s most expensive dog house, before the last dog palace in Copenhagen came out.

A Great Dane owner in the U.K. spent about half a million dollars to have a doghouse built on an exclusive estate near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. It will be built from materials such as zinc, glass and limestone and is designed by a top-class architect.
This expensive doghouse will consist of:

- 52-inch plasma TV
- sophisticated retina scanner installed at the front door to stop any other dogs getting in
- ‘Dog-vision’ webcams to allow their owner to monitor their activity 24 hours a day

I have totally lost my words for this one… @_@
