Eco friendly dog house from Sustainable Pet is ready for the First Dog. The Obama family keeps making all kinds of public statements about the upcoming First Dog arrival – and it looks like in April the question will finally be answered. But leading up to that point – the fine folks at Sustainable Pet have created the Summa Canum as a gift to the yet-to-be-named presidential pooch. In the past we reported on SustainablePet’s Green roof dog houses as they made quite a splash on the Eco-friendly pet market.
With the Summa Canum project Sustainable Pet have taken Eco-design to a whole new level! The dog house is built from reclaimed Cedar trees naturally felled in a tornado on 7th President Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage property, painted with non-toxic zero-VOC paints and the “Green” roof will be outfitted with local vegetation supplied by a Maryland farm. In order to deliver the white dog house to the white house they have made arrangements to further eliminate their carbon-footprint – Rock-legend and Eco-warrior Neil Young will be delivering the Summa Canum to DC in his LincVolt (a super-efficient electric converted Lincoln Continental).
