One-of-a-kind custom doghouses up for grabs at DIA

DENVER -- If you're a dog lover looking for the best digs in town for your four-legged friend, then you'll want to check out the most wag-worthy solar dog houses in Denver.

Fifteen of the most environmentally friendly, creative doghouses can be seen through Monday at Denver International Airport’s Sustainable BARKitecture Dog House Competition.

The doghouses, which were designed and built by local design and architecture firms, are located for public viewing on the plaza between the Westin Denver International Airport and the Jeppesen Terminal, just steps from the commuter rail station.

In addition to gathering ideas for your own doghouse, you can help select some of the winners through online voting that takes place through Thursday.

Through the public voting, one doghouse will be named the winner of the “People’s Choice Award” and another will be named the winner of the “Kids' Choice Award.”

Passengers, families, children and dog lovers are all welcome and encouraged to participate in the online voting.

Additional awards will be given to the “Best in Show,” “Most Sustainable” and “Most Innovation,” and will be selected by a panel of representatives from the airport, Dumb Friends League, Panasonic and the U.S. Department of Energy.

All winners will be announced on Monday at a special event on the plaza from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
