Craftsmanship - Wood Dog Houses
Quality and craftsmanship begin with the selection of only the highest quality materials. While many manufacturers opt for cheaper cuts of wood to reduce costs, our dog houses are made from modern engineered wood designed for superior strength and structural integrity, as well as the highest possible level of moisture, rot, scratch, dent, and insect resistance. As a result, our dog houses resist warping, cracking and splitting better than any other wood dog house, so that this will be the only dog house you ever need to buy for your pet. The engineered wood used to construct our dog houses is proudly made in the U.S.A.
Many of our competitors use plywood, pine, Asian fir, other soft woods, or inferior grades of cedar. These woods lack the structural integrity of our engineered wood and are prone to cracking, curling, warping, moisture rot and other damage when subjected to rain and temperature extremes. Even western red cedar, commonly touted as the best wood for outdoor construction, falls significantly short of the performance of modern engineered wood.
Even worse, some of our competitors use plastics to build their houses. Plastic is a very poor choice for a dog house as it can emit volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), it lacks appropriate thermal insulation properties (too hot in summer, cold in winter), and it generally degrades and becomes brittle relatively quickly due to damage from UV light from the sun.
You can also be assured that the materials we use are safe for your pet. Sadly, a large number of dog houses on the market today are made in China where safety standards have recently come under scrutiny. In fact, in 2008, a major scandal involving tainted dog food from China led to the deaths of thousands of dogs in North America. While some of these dog houses are inexpensive and may appear to be of fair quality, we are sure you will agree after comparing our dog houses, that we offer superior value. And of course, you can be assured that your pet will always be safe and secure in one of our pet homes.
Our commitment to quality is also evident in our innovative designs and in the fit and finish of our houses. At each step of the manufacturing process, our houses are inspected to ensure that they meet our rigorous quality control standards. We employ modern wood cutting tools, several with digital controls that ensure the precision of our cuts. The manufacturing is carried out at our plant in Canada by experienced carpenters and finishers.
No other manufacturer of dog houses uses our patent-pending innovative features including PanelAbode laminated engineered panel systems, a unique insulated wall panel which is light-weight yet unbelievably strong. Not only does it offer superior insulation, it looks great too. Another innovation is our patent-pending Slide-Lock removable roof system which allows you to remove the roof of your dog house in seconds without any tools!
Some of the design elements of our houses may seem like small things, but we call it attention to detail. Your pet deserves nothing less than the best for its comfort and safety, and you deserve nothing less than the best value for your dollar.
