My mom has always wanted a dog house for her Golden. She spends every second she can outside in her gardens and Kody (her dog) often gets hot and doesn’t have many places to get out of the heat. When I asked her why she never got one she said it was because they were always so expensive. I had never looked into them but when DogHousesNow.com contacted me for a review and I saw how affordable their prices were I was dumbfounded.
I went through their choices for dog houses. They had some really cute designs for small, medium, and large dogs. I really loved the Beach House Dog House but knew my Mom wouldn’t. Since I know her taste well I knew she’d really like the Arf Frame Natural Dog House. I personally love it’s natural look but I know my mom will love the option of being able to paint it to her colors too.
The Arf Frame Dog House is a Real Wood Home for your woofer. One of Pet Squeak’s most popular Dog Houses, the Arf-Frame provides your pet their own comfortable habitat. The Arf Frame Dog House is a “Close Fitting” habitat for many breeds of dog who prefer a tighter den. If your dog requires more space, consider purchasing this house in the next larger size. Please compare listed dimensions to the size of your pet.
Natural Stains provide a very earthy habitat, or a perfect environment for your own custom paint job.
When it came in it was really easy to put together. Johnny did most of it but my husband stuck around for a second set of hands when he needed them.My husband was impressed with it’s cedar solid wood. Plus, the cedar gave it a beautiful look. Personally, my mom is nuts if she paints it. I think a little bit of stain to preserve it would be all it needs.

As you can see it looks good from all angles. The wood edging is a little darker then we expected but I like that it’s darker so it doesn’t bother us. I think it compliments the natural knots in the wood nicely.
In the front the roof has an overhang to further help with rain, wind, and sun.
The bottom is raised to keep it from flooding or getting more dirt then needed in side. They have rubber nubs for added protection.
The inside of the doghouse is just as nice as the outside. There is plenty of space for my Mom’s large golden retriever to take a break and get some rest.
You can purchase the Arf Frame Natural Dog House Large by Pet Squeak for $129.99 and comes with free shipping (as do all their dog houses).
We love the dog house. Its attractive, quality made, and was easy to assemble. Any dog (and owner) will love their new Dog House from DogHousesNow.com
