Plastic Pet Homes

Plastic pet homes are a great option for any size dog. They come in various sizes to suit your particular breed and the modern design looks great in any backyard. Made from durable plastic, they are easy to put together - the instructions, screws and screwdrivers are included in the kit. The elevated base helps to protect your dog from the cold wet ground, and air vents in the walls and roof will keep it cool and help prevent odours. You also can remove the base for easy cleaning with a garden hose.
