About this project

 

 

Any Questons? Email us at: hi@barkitecture.dog

We aim to increase our offering of designs as the campaign grows. When a pledge for a house is made, please know that you will be able to choose from these 3 designs as well as a number of others as we hit our stretch goals. The larger the campaign gets, the more we will be able to offer! The designs will be chosen by you, through a survey, that we will send out after the campaign is funded.

We have been working with our high quality suppliers on other projects for years, but we wanted to be certain that we are making Barkitecture perfectly. So we went all the way to China to see the factories and meet everyone involved. We were blown away at the capabilities and the lovely people.

Our mission was to create affordable, quality homes for dogs – something to be proud of and not hidden away. Our goal is to grow Barkitecture into a loved, designer dog brand with a focus on outdoor homes and their designs.

 

If you have any questions, we would love to hear from you!

Risks and challenges

Being a simple, slot together product, Barkitecture requires no expensive setup or 'tooling' costs to put into production. We just need to manufacture a certain amount of houses to ensure we can get the right price for you guys.
We’ve developed other furniture products with our trusted suppliers and left nothing to chance by ordering production samples and tested them in the field with terrific results. As shown above, we even went to visit them.
The primary risk, however, is of production delays. Coordinating with an overseas factory and maintaining quality throughout every step is a challenge. This is why we are working with two suppliers to ensure we meet production deadlines and get the best price for you guys.
Bear in mind that there is some risk that items will not come exactly as pictured due to manufacturing considerations. For example, you may have noticed subtle changes in the houses shown in the video as opposed to the images shown in the campaign. This is due to changes made to our dimensions to better accommodate more sizes of dogs and include functional feature changes. Please note that the houses shown in the still imagery is the final design.
Our goal is to grow our company for the love of dogs, with good quality products that properly reflect you and your dogs' personality, all for the right price.
