We have converted the shed near the vege patch into a large dog house. If we need to go out for a few hours or we are doing work around the property and we don’t want the dogs to get in the way, we thought an outside dog kennel would be the answer. Being frugal these days, we decided not to buy special kennels for Zeph and Zsa Zsa. Besides, have you seen how much dog kennels cost these days?

So hubby got to work and placed wire mesh around the shed and popped on a door. Inside, we put some soft carpets, large cushions and puppy toys. In the shed is an area for them that gives protection from wind and rain but hubby plans to build a simple room inside the shed – like a smaller kennel.

Frugal but luxury accommodation for dogs!
