(Indoor) Dog camper by Straight Line Designs

Every year, the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel plays host to the BowWow Hause London dog house design show and auction. Benefiting the UK-based animal charity Blue Cross, the show features 60+ one-of-a-kind designer dog homes created by a mix of celebrities, renowned architects, artists and designers.

The show is held every April, and raises thousands of dollars (pounds) for the charity. Inspired by some of the entries I found, I thought today I would share my faves, alongside a number of great designs from other sources as well. Enjoy!

You can check out Blue Cross on their website.

  2. I’ve had two dogs and none were interesting in the dog house. They might reconsider with these… Especially the last one, ahh. ❤

  3. I especially like the idea of the noise-cancelling one. Does that come in human queen-bed sized too? I have neighbors who like to party a little too much sometimes.

  4. It is totally true that saying, “It’s a Dog’s Life!”

  5. These are all great designs. I especially like the thought that has gone into the noise cancelling one. I have never had a dog who had a house of its own or even a crate – they just lived in the house with us – but I would imagine that many dogs like having a wee space of their own.

  6. I’d like a noise cancelling cubicle for my autistic son. I wonder how to make that last one a reality and on a larger scale?
