Getting sent to the doghouse used be a solid expression for getting in trouble, but I’m not so sure it holds up anymore. Man’s best friend is moving up in the world, as you can tell from these seriously swanky doghouses. These are possibly nicer than the AirBnB you stayed at during your last vacation.
Looking to upgrade your pup’s pad? If you got some extra cash, any of these would be an amazing splurge. And if you’re like most of us, they’re at least a lot of fun to look at.
1. MDK9 Dog Haus
Now your dog can live in a house that’s nicer than the one you actually live in. Made from Brazilian teak, powder-coated steel and concrete, this modern dog home also features a brushed aluminum name plate. One downside is that your dog will be cooler than you.
2. Canine Camper
In this camper, your dog can pretend to be a vagabond traveling the open road from the backyard. Made by BigCreekMercantile, the canine camper is equipped with LED lighting, food bowls, and even handmade curtains. Want to keep an eye on your dog’s adventures? The trailer also comes with a Wi-Fi connected security camera.

This custom-built doghouse is available in variety of colors and provides your dog a unique safe haven when life gets a little hectic.

5. Modern Dog House Mid Century Ranch
This one-of-a-kind doghouse will make your canine the envy of not just your neighbor’s dogs, but your neighbors too. Complete with artificial turf and a even a succulent planter, this doghouse is so trendy it hurts. You might be tempted to move in yourself.
