Have you heard of the tiny house craze? It’s all over television. You can watch the Tiny House Nation, Tiny House Big Living, Tiny House Builders and Tiny House Hunters, all while sitting in the comfort of your regular-sized home. All of this tiny house exposure is quite the phenomenon and makes for ginormous TV viewing hours. My husband and I have been into tiny houses before they were a thing…before the tiny house wordplay. We are into cabin living! Call it what you will…but, here’s our question…can a dog really live in a tiny house? Could we really live in a “tiny house” (a.k.a. our cabin) with our dogs?
Tiny House Living With a Dog
You can do anything you put your mind to. I should know, I completed a half marathon. Why not a full marathon? Great question! My mind was not having it. So we, my mind and I, settled on a half marathon. My calves and thighs thanked my mind when we staggered across the finish line. If I can finish a half marathon then I can live in a tiny house (small cabin) with a dog. I even found a tiny house show where they built a 200 square foot house for a couple and their Saint Bernard. A Saint Bernard in a Tiny House!?! Good grief, all our dogs combined don’t equate to a Saint Bernard…their cumulative weight is 24% of a 125 pound dog!

Could We Do Tiny House Living With Our Dogs?
For quite some time now we have been living in a small cabin, so yes, we can live in a tiny house – if you consider a small cabin a tiny house! My fuzzy ones and I, along with my husband have been living a complicated life – city for work and country for life. It’s a duality that often gets tiring. Our souls harken to live a life akin to Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music!
Our cabin is cozy and over the next three years we plan on making it our full time residence. Our dogs have always enjoyed our rural escape times, so we’re excited to share our next phase of our lives with them…embracing a less complicated, more rewarding, lifestyle. We’ll share our journey, including the highs and lows, as we slowly meander into tiny house living – we hope you enjoy our exploits as we learn to thrive in a cabin in the woods with small dogs!
Thanks for reading, and until next time – take care and keep on lovin’ your dog!
A little dog making a big impact in this world!®
