Dog Gets Air Conditioner In Dog House

MacWhenever it’s hot outside, all that your dog probably wants to do is stay in an air conditioned room and lay on the cold floor. One dog got his dream come true.

Mac, a rottweiler and labrador mix, has his own dog house. It used to be a playhouse, but his owner, Ira Goodwin, converted it to a storage room and dog house for Mac.

With temperatures reaching above 100 degrees in Greensboro, North Carolina, Goodwin decided to put air conditioning in Mac’s dog house. He told his wife that he was going to put air conditioning in the dog house, and his wife asked “you’re going to do what?”

Having central air in their house, Goodwin took an old window unit from their home and put it in Mac’s house. He also took out some of the carpet in the dog house, so Mac can lay on the floor instead of the carpet.

Goodwin said that some of his neighbors and even his wife thinks that he is crazy for going to such great lengths for his dog and keeping him cool. His wife said that they didn’t even have air conditioning in their own house when they were younger. But, she does understand Goodwin’s love for his dog and all of the things that he will do for Mac.

Don’t worry, Mac also stays warm during the winter time. For those cold months, he has a radiator with an automatic thermostat.

    Yeah, caring about your dog’s comfort and well-being IS crazy. What was he thinking?

    why doesn’t he just let his dog share the house with his family instead of being separated from them?

    you shouldnt use an a/c unit for a dog house. it will say “not for specific use such as cooling animals” in the a/c unit’s instruction book. this holds true for people in direct contact with the air flow. its toxic.
