3             The Canine cavern

For many of us a dog is a mans best firend and for those of you who do have a pooch or two then you’ll love our under counter dog bed. We all know that dogs like to keep an eye on our every move and we also know that just occasionally they get in the way while we’re trying to get a meal prepared or served. Our crafty canine cavern gives the best of both worlds by including the dog but keeping him or her out of our way.
