It’s nice to have some personal space, even if you’re a dog. Dog owner Betty McCall must have had this in mind when she decided that her 4-year-old Chihuahua, Pancho, deserved his own private room.
Imgur user Fatisbac is McCall’s nephew, and he recently took a few photos of his aunt’s creation. He noted the picture of dogs playing poker on the wall of the room, writing: It’s “the little things that can make a room come together.”
Isn’t that the truth? Pancho must feel right at home in his little room.
Pancho’s bedroom is under the stairs, leading some to draw parallels between Pancho and Harry Potter (remember how poor Harry was forced to live in a tiny room under the stairs in the Privet Drive home of his terrible relatives?). No word on Pancho’s wizarding abilities, however.
Pancho seems to be pleased with his little pad, unlike Harry. After all, we all need a place to rest our itty bitty sombreros, don’t we?
Pancho looks like he’s got a good thing going with his own room. From his little bed, to food and water bowls nearby, plus a tiny chest of drawers to store treats and toys—little Pancho is one lucky dog!
But Pancho isn’t the only dog to get his own room under the stairs. These photos shared on Twitter show how someone actually renovated the space under the stairs to create a room for a dog. It’s even got framed artwork on the walls and a nice cozy bed. Very impressive!

If you thought those were nice, check out little Mia’s room! Decked out with a hot pink bed, cute nightstand and her name on the wall, you might even mistake it for a child’s room.
Here’s another stair-nook-turned-dog-bedroom. The dog-themed artwork and a large plant make this space so homey!
This dog house is more utilitarian, but definitely a major upgrade from your standard crate. With dog-themed trinkets on the built-in shelves and the decorative door, it looks like part of the home’s decor, instead of an afterthought.
If you’re feeling inspired by these dogs’ digs to give your pooch a room of her own, check out these inexpensive dog houses that you can make or buy.
For a simple solution, buy this pet teepee for $22 on Amazon.
For $118, you can get this charming two-story dog house, complete with a staircase and rooftop deck. The only downside with this one is that you might start to feel a little bit jealous of your dog!
If you’re handy and willing to put a little bit of elbow grease into your dog’s dwelling, Lowe’s has a handy dog house tutorial. The instructions include all of the supplies and materials you’ll need and easy-to-understand directions for building the dog house. The end result is very cute!
Really ready to put your carpentry skills to the test? Then try your hand at constructing this sleek and modern doggie abode with a wrap-around porch. You can scale down the measurements to make it smaller if necessary.
And finally, the grandest dog house of them all. It’s a dog mansion, really. The dogs that call this palace home belong to none other than Paris Hilton (naturally).
This doggie mansion is 300 square feet. It was decorated by interior designed Faye Resnick and features furniture designed by Phillippe Starck. And yes, there is even a balcony (you didn’t expect Hilton’s dogs to sit around inside all day, did you?).
