this is actually a cool idea, hide you doggy dog with a dog house. I've always thought about people climbing through a dog door to invade a house. I've climbed through dog doors after locking myself out of a place.
If we ever get a dog.Pet station made from a small dresser - Food is kept in top with scoop. Drawers hold all pet supplies, leash, collar, sprays, etc.top can be where cat dishes are kept so the dog doesn't eat his food
