Dog Bark Park Inn is a bed and breakfast guesthouse in the body of the World’s Biggest Beagle located at Dog Bark Park on Hwy 95 at Cottonwood, Idaho. Guests enter the body of the beagle from a private spacious 2nd story deck. Inside and up another level in the head of the dog are a loft room for additional sleeping accommodations and a cozy reading nook in the dog’s muzzle.

Unusual Dog that might be a house

Featured in the book Barkitecture, by Fred Albert, are some of the most inspired and fantastic abodes for dogs ever built. In addition to doghouses by architects — Wright, Gwathmey, Antoine Predock, Centerbrook and NBBJ, for example — there are works by notable interior designers like Robert Couturier.”

Barkitecture is a tribute to the fabulous homes we silly humans love to build or buy for our beloved pets. Dozens of truly spectacular dog houses are featured in full color with details on their design, construction, and the dogs who call them home. It is at once a history of dog houses, a fun coffee table book, an inspiration for your own designs and a resource for those looking to have a doggy home designed for their pampered puppy.

    I find it always interesting to read great blogs with good content about Coffee House Seattle because we can learn so much about that subject. Your blog regarding Barkitecture seems quite relevant even if I dont agree with everything. Thx
