This doghouse has a green roof so your pup will always stay cool

A lot of homes nowadays are going green – and we’re not just talking about the ones owned by humans.

In anticipation of the upcoming Carmel Canine Cottages Competition, California-based Studio Schicketanz has built an eco-friendly doghouse called Doggy Dreamhouse.

Proof that green architecture can be applied to any structure of any size or inhabitant, the shelter features a lush carpet that goes up a ramp and covers the entire roof, reducing indoor heat and giving your pet a neat view of the yard.

It comes with other eco-friendly amenities such as a motion-activated rooftop faucet for drinking, a solar-powered fan, and even a drain built into the ceiling for easy cleanup. There’s also a drawer for storing toys and treats.

And did we mention it has a window where your dog can peek out at you? It’s sustainable AND adorable!

The so-called “roof for a whoof,” as one commenter described it, will be on exhibit at the Carmel Canine Cottages Competition in Carmel, California, from 11-15 September 2018.

The house will be auctioned off on the 15th, with the proceeds going to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) for Monterey County.
