Yap of lux­ury! The £170k dog ken­nel

Daily Mail - - News -

IF YOUR dog is fed up with ruff­ing it, then this could be just the thing.

For a mere £170,000, you could get your mutt its very own man­sion.

The ‘dog manors’ can be fit­ted with treat dis­pensers, a con­fer­ence-call­ing sys­tem and even a ther­mo­stat.

Each house, pro­duced by Cheshire­based He­cate Verona, takes about four months to build, with styles in­clud­ing colo­nial villa, Ro­man im­pe­rial man­sion and Span­ish pala­cio.

The houses fea­ture dolomite and mar­ble – and, of course, the floors are scratch-re­sis­tant.

Prices start at £30,000, but if your pooch is af­ter some­thing more pala­tial, a top-of-the-range ken­nel costs £170,000 – not that far short of the av­er­age house price, which is £218,390. Alice Wil­liams, of He­cate Verona, said: ‘I started work­ing on my dog manors af­ter I be­gan ask­ing my­self why a dog house shouldn’t be as el­e­gant and beau­ti­ful as its owner’s.

‘Our ob­jec­tive now is to cre­ate ma­jes­tic and royal- look­ing homes for dogs, while seek­ing to com­ple­ment the gar­den and sur­round­ings it stands in.’
