Dog houses for the DOC K9 UnitThe Drug Interdiction K9 Unit and Captain Scott Cronauer would like to thank SCI Houtzdale's Superintendent Barry Smith and his maintenance department for building custom dog houses for the K9 Unit.

This was a huge cost savings for the DOC. A vendor cost of a dog house is up to $800 each, but by providing material to SCI Houtzdale's maintenance department and having them build to specifications, the cost was well under $200.

The structure of the dog house is extremely sturdy and well-insulated inside for the safety of the K9s. Current K9 handlers with older dog houses will be replaced with these awesome custom build models.

Again, the K9 handler's and K9s on the unit thank SCI Houtzdale's maintenance department.
