It's a Dog's Life

This laundry and mud room was designed around the chocolate lab, literally. In the corner, his bed is stashed along with his bowls. The counter top height, cabinet depth and even the rustic color of the cabinetry were selected to work with the needs of this very special family friend. If only he could work the washer and dryer while he waited!

Brookhaven cabinetry by Wood-Mode, Colony, Dove Grey on distressed pine; Whirlpool Duets; Tile flooring

Not meant to offend but isn't the cage a little small for a Lab?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Never having owned a dog myself, I have no idea. I designed the room around the size of the cage that this lab already called home, which was approximately two feet wide by three feet tall by four feet deep.

Double check that your pets’ tags have the new address and your cell phone number on them. Introduce pets to their new home gradually and keep them in a secure place, so they aren’t accidentally let out in an unfamiliar neighborhood during all the commotion.
