Wood Pet Kennel

Build this kennel to guarantee your puppy a comfortable bed!
Do you remember when we presented Old T-shirt Cat Tent for our little cute cat companions? Now it’s high time we looked for something for our more even-tempered, calm and reliable friends - dogs! (Enumerating all these I meant adult dogs) Puppies are more destructive and have more excitable nature than kittens that’s why all shoes, slippers and pieces of furniture are in danger.

Nevertheless, some people decide to adopt a dog from a local animal shelter. They usually choose a little fluffy creature which looks the most innocent in the whole litter, but brought home the puppy turns out to be an incorrigible rascal. Once you face such a difficult situation I would advise to build a Wood Pet Kennel by Ana White, which may occur the only way to spare your favourite footwear.
