How can I win the Movers for Mutts Doggy Dream Home?
Together, REALTOR® Matthew Hansen and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Nashville can even move your dog into his or her dream home! Bring a donation to any of our Movers for Mutts® events, and you can enter to win our Doggy Dream Home.
This custom doghouse was actually hand-crafted from reclaimed wood by Matthew, who spends his spare time working on fun carpentry projects. Although this weather-resistant doghouse is perfect for your porch and backyard, it can also make a stylish indoor dog bed when you insert your favorite dog pillow! This house is 44″ wide x 29″ deep x 34.5″ high (all measurements include the roof).
