Home is where the heart is – because that’s where your dog is waiting for you. Living the dream just got a little bit easier for our four-legged friends in new home communities that feature doggy amenities built right in.

Imagine you and Fido have just had an amazing game of frisbee in the spacious and lush bark park right around the corner from your home. After quenching his thirst in the fresh watering hole custom built just for pups, your pooch meanders back to his custom dog house, which happens to be an adorable little replica of yours. You both kick back and relax, thinking about how you’re living the good life.

The folks at Taylor Morrison, a home building company out of Scottsdale, Arizona, have made those figments of your imagination reality! We love the cool list of amenities pet parents can have built into their homes, just for their dogs. Sigh… it makes us want to pack up and move to our own doggy castle!

Graham Hughes, chief customer officer at Taylor Morrison, explains the mindset behind the pet-enticing perks of the homes they build. “We know pets hold a special place in our homebuyers’ hearts, and that was the impetus for ensuring we had amenities to help make not only the care of pets easier, but to provide pets with amenities that keep them active and healthy.”

With home communities in Chicago, Austin, Houston, Dallas, Denver, and Naples, Florida, the dog-focused features are pretty impressive! Going above and beyond the typical neighborhood dog run, Taylor Morrison clearly sets out to design features that you won’t find in other typical neighborhoods. For instance, the Esplanade community in Florida will offer doggy lifestyle concierges (wouldn’t we all love one of those in OUR lives??) who will help your furbaby plan playdates, set up grooming appointments, and host health and wellness seminars designed to bring the best out in your dog.

And, while those ‘conveniences’ sound (and are!) luxurious, get a load of this – awesome indoor dog showers that will make it super easy for you to give Fluffy the spa-like environment she’s always deserved. Seriously? Yes, seriously. I mean, how many times have you literally cried at the thought of trying to give your dog a bath? (Only us?) Well, weep no more; Those days are over!

If you’re interested in moving into a home that’s your dog’s castle, you can check out Taylor Morrison’s website for a neighborhood near you.

Because trust us. It’s a ‘ruff’ life. Do what you can to make it easier and more enjoyable! Your dog will thank you!
