A Step Up: Awesome House Has Little Staircase Just For Dogs

Do we own our dogs, or do our dogs own us? We can’t be sure, but we can say that this house has gone to the dogs, with a custom staircase just for pups.

Short legs can make a steep climb up or down the stairs a feat and a half for some of our furry friends. With many pet owners treating their dogs and cats like part of the family, it’s little wonder that we’re now including the needs of our pets in our home decor and design decisions.

In fact, that’s exactly what architecture firm 07Beach recently did for some home owners in Vietnam. The family has two relatively small dogs and the human size stairs could be a bit challenging for them, so included in the home’s design is a twin set of half-sized, narrower stairs, perfect for little paws and short legs!

Aside from being a great idea, we think it’s absolutely adorable, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see more people incorporating pet friendly features in their homes in the future.
