Rated 4 out of 5 Great dog house for our Chocolate Lab
We have a chocolate lab who spends all her days outside whether it is summer or winter she simply prefers to be outside running around and playing. I generally have no problem with this except sometimes it gets a little cold int he winter with the snow and everything and then the blaring sun in the summer tends to be too much for her and she seeks shelter from the sun anywhere she can.
I received this dog house and was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to put together. It came in a rather large flat box and at first I thought oh no I have to put this together, I hate putting stuff together when there are a ton of pieces and it takes hours to do so. I opened the box and there was only 9 pieces in total to this dog house to be assembled. It actually took us longer to find a screwdriver in my husbands mess of a garage then it did to put the dog house together.
8 bolts and 12 screws later we had a fully assembled dog house. The first to try it was our three kids who all fit in there together no problem. Once we lured the kids out with the promise of freezies we got Holley, our dog, to give it a try. At first she was unsure of it but as the day wore on she had no problem going into her dog house and hanging out, now she spends a lot of time in there when it gets too hot out and is quite happy with her new home.
The dog house did arrive slightly damaged around the door frame the decorative trim was broken but since it did not actually affect the dog house so I did not bother returning it for a new one. Also when assembling it the wood split on the roof some when we were putting the screw in, this was not due to over tightening as it started as soon as we started to screw it in, but again it is not affecting the functionality of the dog house.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lukie177 This is a great house for the 3 stray cats we take care of. It doesn't leak and provides nice shelter against the wind, cold and rain. We bought a plastic door for the front to provide even more shield and added bedding. The cats LOVE it. They climb on top of it and lay inside when its cold. Its even big enough for my Shetland Sheepdog. The cats we take care of are skinny and we got the small size but all 3 fit in it with no problems. Its bigger than I expected and was easy to assemble. I would highly suggest this to anyone!
Rated 5 out of 5 by flcountrygrl I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY OUTSIDE CAT!
The cat house is great and Rebock loves it. But I found problems as I took it from the carton. All the sides & roof panels were moldy; I had to scrub that off. I didn't want my pet to get sick. The floor came in 2 pieces, which did not stay together, so with help, we stapled strapes underneath, so it would hold his weight and stay up.
I gave it excellent ratings, but buyer beware; as you might have to do the same thing to yours and I did to mine.
Rated 3 out of 5 by villis Missing parts
The overall quality of the wood is regular, I had to re-painted because it only has a thin layer of color but no waterproof stain or gloss finish as it seems to have by the pictures. The wood around one of the pre-made holes for screws was cracked. The worst was that we put it all together and then we realized there was a part missing, the top long piece of wood that unifies both sides of the roof wasn't in the box. Obviously, this house as it is now cannot be used outside because all the water will come inside. Now I'll try to get the missing part with the manufacturer to finish it all. One good thing about it is that my dog loved it from the fist time :)

Very easy to assemble and the finished product was beautiful. Just waiting to see how it endures the weather, but so far so good.
