Home Is Where the Bark Is
Enter your DIY doghouse into a competition
Does your doghouse deserve its day?

There are a lot of elegant, strange and quirky doghouses out there. From straightforward shade providers to structures so tricked out they’d blend in on the Vegas Strip. Maybe because the scale is manageable and the perspective tenants are usually agreeable—especially on aesthetic issues—doghouses draw out the inner architect in us.

For too long your design-and-build efforts have gone unsung. But now the DIY Network wants to reward these backyard domiciles with more than a lonely howl. Enter your hand-crafted creation in the Best DIY Doggone Doghouse in Americz contest, and you could win the grand prize of a $500 Orvis gift card or a weekly prize of a DNA breed identification kit. So far there are canine cabins, palaces, pueblos and palapas entered in the contest—which runs through July 23. We’re hoping to feature photos of the winner in the September home-themed issue of Bark.
