We bought this dog house about 8+ years ago for one of our older dogs. She has now passed on and our 3 border collies have taken residence & use this to rest & shelter in when they are outside.
It was very easy to put together and has not fallen apart in 8+yrs. We have taken it apart to move and clean it, and we move it to different spots around the yard and it holds up well.
Our big border collie (60 lbs) and the small one (40lbs) both fit in there in a rain, thunder or snow storm. They dont seem to mind both being together in there as long as they are sheltered. Years ago, for a joke , I can remember my husband actually got into it and he's 230lbs - he backed in as far as he could go and fit !!!
The snow and rain only get inside if it's blowing sideways, I made a bed to fit inside and it rarely gets wet, but we put the house in the most sheltered position for rain/snow.
Our youngest Border Collie chews everything plastic and I mean EVERYTHING, but she has never even tried to chew this house - thank goodness.
Even after daily use for 8+yrs it still looks really good and does not look old and weathered, the floor/walls/roof have not buckled or become mis-shapen, even with the extremes of temperatures we get in Colorado. I would buy this house again in a heartbeat if anything happened to this one.

I am the proud mom of a 10 month old, 120 lb rottweiler husky mix. This giant puppy chews up everything, the world is his toy. This house has not been a target of his slobbery jaws. It's well built, tough, and looks good. I use a large industrial rubber mat as bedding. (he shreds blankets) He took to it well, and sleeps in it every night. I highly recommend this house.

I have owned this for over a year and I can write an honest review. WORTHLESS. Buy something else or build your own. I wanted a doghouse for our 85# doberman. Some of the reviews spoke about dogs larger than mine, so I figured this would work plus our dog is 50/50 inside and outside so I knew it wouldn't have heavy use.

Basic requirements:
1. Large enough for him to curl up inside: Pass (barely-THAT photo has to be a small lab)
2. Keep the wind off of him in the winter: Fail
3. Keep the sun off of him in the summer: Pass
4. Keep him dry. Fail--miserably.

Problem: The sides of the house do not line up flush with base(see pic) so any rain that hits the side rolls down and goes inside the dog house instead of down onto the ground outside. (either that or its curling under the roof(which I don't think so)) I have to constantly replace cedar chips, even a slight rain will seep inside.
Its not just at the opening thats getting wet. It apparently leaks all the way around as evidenced by the rain we got last night, since the bottom piece is concaved inside it looks like a cedar chip swimming pool. ( I am ticked off - this thing cost $200.00 bucks)

The picture that is posted is misleading. The fit is not that good. If the reviews from 3-4 years ago are honest(I am suspicious) then the manufactuer has fired its quality control person. I recieved all the parts and it snapped together easily enough--this isn't a heavy duty dog house - it is just an expensive shelter. But even shelters should have the ability to keep a dog's bed dry. (call me crazy for thinking this is a basic requirement)

I have 4 feral cats that have called my deck their home. It all started when I fed one cat and word got around the neighborhood that I was running a soup kitchen for homeless cats. I purchased an Our Pets Tuff-N-Rugged Dog House about 5 months ago to give them some shelter. Unfortunately only two cats fit so I just ordered a second one. This is a well made easy to assemble dog (or in my case cat) house. I have built three very large sheds in the past so I could have easily built something out of wood with a shingle roof but why bother. Wood will eventually deteriorate and my homemade dog house would weigh much more so it would be difficult to move. I did not buy the door because I don't know if cats will be willing to push in or if they will be fearful of being in a totally closed in structure. The psychology of a cat is way different than that of a dog. So I decreased the size of the opening using a piece of composite decking and some plexiglass. The last image with the feral cat inside was taken before I made the entrance smaller. I also put a warming mat inside as well as led lights. There is a bed of straw in there as well. I put the doghouse on a stand about 2 feet off the ground so that it will be above most accumulations of snow should there be snow. Because of of the fears cats have is being trapped in a structure with one exit/entrance I cut a side door which can be used in an emergency such as when a hungry predator (likely a raccoon) comes in for the kill or even just to investigate. Cats are very vulnerable to predators despite their reputation as rodent and bird hunters. The side door is plexiglass and has a barn door configuration using brass hinges. A slight push on the doors from the inside and they will open easily. I have not noticed any issues with rain coming in.Read more ›
