Blythe Wood Works has designed our new Raised Foundation to accommodate every size of cat and doghouse in our product line. So from our smallest house 17 cathouse, to our largest house the 24 sqft Goliath, the Raised Foundation will support the house 7 inches off the ground and still have enough room for the pet to lie on, or put dog bowls on or even accompany an optional porch and deck.
The construction of these Raised Foundations are made of full sized frame members (1.5 thick x 2.5 width). The posts and frame members are lifetime pressure treated lumber for ground contact. The decking is rich western red cedar which really compliments our beautiful cedar houses.
Raising your pets house off the ground has some very profound benefits. Fleas and ticks will be less prolific in a house that is elevated off the ground.
Dogs that have an elevated platform for doghouse entry is healthy for their hind in larger dogs.
Please note: the small, large and small duplexes are shipped via FedEx ground and can be ordered with or without a doghouse. The extra large, giant, goldzilla, goliath, and large duplex are so large they have to be delivered common carrier. Therefore they must be ordered with a doghouse. If you wish to order them without a house, there will be an additional cost for freight.
