SIT. STAY. UNWIND.

Nestled in a lush tropical forest peppered with towering durian trees there is an exclusive retreat, about an hour south of Kuala Lumpur. Not just anyone can stay there. Guests of this designer hotel are required to belong to the Canis lupus familiaris species. The aptly named Doghouse is a holiday sanctuary for dogs to stay at when their humans are away.

Designed by husband and wife team Wen Hsia and BC Ang of award-winning WHBC Architects, Doghouse comprises six ‘villas’ constructed from concrete (to protect dogs from falling durian fruit) and fitted with ceiling fans, mosquito netting, skylights and even sound systems. “Dogs are playful, fun loving, happy animals. We decided to have a little fun and build this literally as the classic Pluto dog house but in concrete,” Ang said. Lined by stone walls and constructed around the four-acre site’s existing trees and boulders, Doghouse’s facilities are designed to weather naturally, and offer guests plenty of ground to play. “We are most happy when we see the dogs running around and doing all their funny antics in the spaces,” Ang added. Pure pooch getaway bliss.

ISSUE SIX — BUY NOW

We are excited to announce our sixth issue is now available.
In this issue we learn about anthropomorphism, dog-headed succulents, four-legged shop assistants, gentle giants, doting dachshunds, and a wolf with friendly eyes. We fall in love with mash-ups of Snoopy and Charlie Brown, hybrid dogs, flying pups, and a handsome bull terrier celeb hailing from New York City (did you guess already…?). All this, and more, inside the covers.
