Phoenix Rising Rescue Shelter Spotlight

By | Shelter Spotlight | One Comment

This post is part of our Shelter Spotlight series, where we highlight animal rescues and shelters around the country and donate $200 to their cause. Nominate a rescue in your community here.

Phoenix Rising Rescue is a foster based rescue meaning that they do not operate out of a facility. All of their rescue dogs are either with Carrie, PRR Founder, or in foster homes with other loving families. They aspire to have their own facility one day, but for now, they are still in foster based homes until they are adopted.


Why do they only focus on bully breeds? Pit Bulls and other bully breeds have been given a “bad rap” by the media. The truth about this magnificent breed is that they are incredibly intelligent and can be great family dogs.

The majority of the population think they’re out of their minds for how much time and energy they invest into what’s done at Phoenix Rising Rescue. Most don’t understand that dog rescue is not a hobby…it’s a lifestyle! They intend to change the world’s perception of Pit bulls and to rescue as many of these fabulous dogs as possible one pitty at a time!

Waggin Tails Shelter Spotlight

By | Shelter Spotlight | No Comments

This is post is part of our Shelter Spotlight series, where we highlight animal rescues and shelters around the country and donate $200 to their cause. Nominate a rescue in your community here.

Waggin Tails Canine Rescue was founded by 2 crazy dog loving women with a passion for the canines. The rescue has now saved over 1500 dogs from high kill shelters and puppy mills across the country. The rescue is still run by the same two ladies, but has grown and amazing team of fosters that help care for every dog that comes to the rescue. Each dog receives love from the moment they arrive. Waggin Tails Canine Rescue is 100% foster based, and is inspected by the state each year. We are incredibly blessed to have the foster system we do.

All animals receive vet care, spay/neuters, vaccines, microchips, and are sent out to specialist if needed. We have seen some horrible neglect cases while doing this but nothing brings us more joy then we we are finally able to see the sparkle return to a rescued dogs eyes once they finally realize they are safe!

We Had To Sell Our House…Here’s Why

By | Doggie Den Updates | 17 Comments

Well, we’re officially homeless, and here’s why this is great news for you.

In 2014, Brody and I bought our home in Parker, Colorado. It was our first, and as you could imagine we were beyond excited. Being the handy-husband he is, Brody spent days and days remodeling each and every part of our home.

One part of our home that was particularly bothersome was the area with two hideous wire kennels. We had two ugly wire kennels in our kitchen! Thus the idea for building beautiful indoor dog kennel furniture was born.

Fast forward 2 years and building over 430 kennels in our basement, it’s time to grow our business faster. We’ve invested in a large warehouse here in Colorado, and sold our house to help pay for it. We have had a few bumps along the road that have set the construction back a couple months. Fingers crossed we should move in around the end of February!

I never thought that we would move back in with my parents, but we are going to!

Brody and I can’t stand the fact that you have to wait to so long to get your Doggie Den and that’s why we are fully committed to delivering your B&B Kustom Kennel to your family as fast as possible, and we’re pleased to say that once were in or new building we will be able to deliver them faster! We are currently running ahead of schedule but we will need that cushion time as we transition and move.

Thank you again for understanding that quality takes time, and believing in our mission to eliminate all of the ugly wire kennels in the world!

P.S. If you haven’t placed your order yet, I’d recommend doing so soon to get a good place in the queue!

P.S.S. Here’s our future warehouse!

It’s not just a business.

Brody and I took some time to reflect over the Thanksgiving Holiday and got to thinking about what our little pet furniture business is all about. I get to talk to every person who becomes part of our B&B family and it’s truly amazing to hear everyone’s story. One thing’s for certain, our business starts with the little pups, but the engine that drives this forward is family. We recently got to hear the powerful story of our friend Cindy, who’s Doggie Den has transformed into a memorial of her Firefighting husband.

“My husband was a firefighter and my best friend! In 2008 he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. My boss allowed me to work from home so I could be with and take care of him while he was Jeromeundergoing treatment. He fought a very brave and painful fight, but unfortunately, passed away four months later. I reached a point
where I could barely get out of bed and then my daughter talked me into getting a puppy that I knew I did not want! Now they have changed my life for the better” -Cindy Crawford

Just a year later Cindy now had two dogs, Cooper and Sammi that were housed in ugly wire kennels. After she saw our ad on Facebook she knew that the Doggie Den was the perfect home for her fur babies. Today, Cindy’s Doggie Den sits in her office that has now been turned into a memorial for her husband, Jerome.

As you can see displayed in these photos, the Firefighters from each department (Akron and Tallmadge) signed Jerome’s helmet and axe, honoring his service and courageous life. He was truly loved by all! While he was in the hospital there was always a fire truck out front. Someone was always there from the station to support them.

Although we are in the business of creating beautiful pieces of pet furniture, we are more so in the business of people and the stories that they get to tell. The Doggie Den has truly changed our life, and our biggest hope is that it will allow us to change someone else’s someday.

With Love

A Cubs Inspired Kennel to Raise Money for Chicago Animals

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

Even though we live in Parker, CO and are in the middle of building our new manufacturing facility, my hometown roots grow deep in Chicago. Yes, I am a Cubs fan.

My entire childhood was spent living, breathing, and playing baseball, and when I wasn’t doing that I was watching the Chicago Cubs win at Wrigley Field with my friends and family. Growing up a Cubs fan can be full of heartache, excitement, and frustration, but no, not this year! This year was finally the year.

After we won the World Series, sang “Go, Cubs Go” and flew the W flag, Bethany and I looked at each other and had yet again, another crazy idea. “Let’s build a Cubs Doggie Den!” Just like that, we started designing this one-of-a-kind Doggie Den with the Cubs inspired colors, but that we were still missing something that would bring it all together. That’s when we decided to mount real baseballs to the feet of the Doggie Den, and there it was, the Cubs inspired Doggie Den was complete.

Instead of only auctioning this kennel off to the highest bidder, or sending it to the Cubs General Manager, we decided to do something different. My wife and I have always been passionate about giving back to communities, and more recently, animal shelters. We’ve decided to partner with a local Chicago animal rescue, PAWS Chicago, to help their efforts in making Chicago a No Kill Community. This Holiday season, our Chicago Cubs inspired Doggie Den will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds benefiting PAWS Chicago directly.

See how you can help in raising awareness for this great cause and contributing to their Giving Tuesday campaign.

Here’s the details about the show and a little sneak peek of the where you’ll see our farmhouse style dog kennel this Saturday.

About the show (From HGTV): Couples or friends dreaming of owning a vacation home but unable to afford one on their own finally get a chance. In each episode of Sharing Paradise, groups of friends or family members pool their resources and go house hunting for the perfect vacation getaway to buy and share. Viewers will learn how to get the vacation home of their dreams, at a fraction of the cost.

Don’t forget! You can now purchase B&B Kustom Kennels gift cards this Holiday Season.

The lead time is real… here’s why:

By | Uncategorized | 14 Comments

If you’ve been to our site in the last month you’ve probably noticed a bit of insanity in a reddish colored font on our shopping page. Yes, I’m referring to the delivery time that has increased week by week. 10 weeks, 15 weeks, 18 weeks, 20 weeks, and now 27 weeks. No, we didn’t get hacked, no it’s not an accident. Sadly, this lead time is 100% true. Here’s why:

This picture. We shared one of our iconic Farmhouse Style double kennels on Facebook, like all of our other clients and then suddenly the rumblings began. We woke up to hundreds of requests and inquiries and then knew we had a problem. This photo went viral, reaching over 7,000,000 people on Facebook. The traffic to our site actually jammed up our website for over almost an hour! Thankfully our friends helped us out quickly and got us up and running again.

Farmhouse Grey Top

Here’s the good news. This lead time isn’t permanent! We’re obviously going through some growing pains at the moment and don’t want to see the quality of our product suffer. Soon, B&B Kustom Kennels will have an official headquarters! We plan to break ground in our new facility this October, and hopefully the doors open November here in Colorado. This space, along with hired hands, will alleviate some of the pains of this growth spurt, mainly space.

We look forward to continuing to serve our clients and fans with the quality product they expect (their dogs too). Stay tuned with our Facebook page for future updates.

Thank you for your patience and support in the B&B Kustom Kennels story!

Bethany & Brody
… and Gracie and Pyper.

We Started A Business!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We’d like to pause for just one little moment and take a deep exhale…
Followed by a resounding: WE DID IT!

We started a business. It brings us great joy to know that we have taken a fun-loving idea and turned it into a product that dog-lovers like ourselves can enjoy too.

BB Kustom Kennels has come a long way in just over one month and we’re beyond thrilled to venture into the months ahead. Not only will we be fulfilling the orders that are coming in, but we are also starting to map out our schedule for trade-shows, expos and festivals across the country! (We’ll publish a full event schedule soon!)

What started as just one kennel for our very own fur-babies has now grown into two different styles of kennels, various sizes and stain colors. So far, the feedback has been tremendous! Take a look at how some of our Doggie Den fans are using this functional furniture in their home for their beloved pups and meet some of our new friends in their new homes!
