Uplander Dog House

Post by Garrison » Sat Apr 18, 2020 3:23 pm

Found a used, but in really good condition Uplander Dog House on Craig’s List for $50. Pretty happy with the find.

Overall impressions:
A nice dog house, think I like the now discontinued dog den more due to the better door. Dog preferred it over the barrel when I had both in the kennel. I’m sure it will last a long time.

Pros:
Simple, well made, floor comes out for cleaning, I can crack the roof in warmer weather to let some air in. Medium is perfect size for a 50lb dog, nice and tight and warm, Had to buy it for $50

Cons:
Door is really light weight aluminum, not nearly as high quality as the Dog Den door, can’t prop it open in the heat. Wish it was a little deeper for winter bedding

Upgrades:
I cut a stall mat for the floor, I might work out a magnet catch system for the door to prop it open in the heat. Interior is plywood, some models come with FRP, think I may get a sheet and line it for easier cleaning.

I was shocked at the price too, until I found out the guy that was selling it wasn’t a bird dog guy.

Although the people in the bird dog community are some of the most generous people I have ever met and we all spend untold amounts on our hobby, by and large it is incontrovertible that we also have the tightest grip on our wallets. :D

Two Pomeranians wouldn’t go through the door so it was listed. And now that my dog sleeps well at night featherfinder, I do as well :lol:
