I have a very active Australian Cattle Dog. This dog has destroyed the light plastic houses, wooden houses, and the Dogloos. He just takes them apart. I finally put down a stall mat and staked a large rubbermaid stock tank to it, (with a door cut out of it), and he could not destroy that! But I wanted something for our mild winters. This doghouse came fully assembled, except for the door and its overhang. I decided not to install that at this time. The first day, the dog had moved all 55 lbs of the house, and finally toppled it onto its roof. Not a scratch on it. The house has 5 legs; so I chained the back 2 legs to the frame of the fence. I know he tried to move it, but it's staying in place. The finish is very nice, and it will be easy to clean. I hope it lasts forever!!
I was a little confused about the latch for the lid. It’s almost like they made the hole in the wrong place. Wish it had a opening for hound heater. Still a great box and exactly what I expected.
These dog condos are what I’ve been looking for for over 10 years!!! Easy to move, clean and look sleek! Shipping was delayed within UPS for a couple weeks which was frustrating, but mom fault of Impact Crates! I think these are genius!!!
We purchased this house and love it so much. We have a chocolate lab that loves to chew. She spends time outside during the day while we are at work. The other cheaper dog house made of wood lasted about 4 months. My wife showed this one to me and I said "there is no way I'm paying that for a dog house". So there I was purchasing the dog house. But I'm so glad I did, the disappointed look of our lab when she realized she couldn't destroy this one was worth it. Very well constructed and nice clean seams. We did have to put cedar shavings inside and take the door off because she wouldn't go inside. The cedar shavings are natural so I don't care if she eats those. Probably hurts a little on the back side, but hey its worth it to know she is dry and warm when outside.
Fourth one purchased, great product. ImpactDogCrates was even better.
