The new Dogs home, which has been designed by Birmingham-based Associated Architects, puts dogs at the centre of the design process. The building will provide internal and external environments that will ensure maximum comfort and minimum stress levels for the dogs, through careful planning and orientation. Passive design principles will also ensure that energy requirements are kept to a minimum.

The state-of-the-art facility will sit sympathetically within the surrounding area and the extensive planting and landscaping will create a pleasant environment, with plenty of space for the dogs to enjoy external exercise.
