The Citadel

The Citadel's mascots, Boo X (left) and Gen. Robert P. Carson (right) debuted as the mascots for The Citadel in fall 2014. Their impressive doghouse is modeled after barracks on the South Carolina campus, with air conditioning and dog beds inside. See Citadel's mascots going back to 1920s in this video.

University of Georgia

The Georgia Bulldogs mascot, UGA IX, enjoys an air-conditioned doghouse in Sanford Stadium, especially on hot days early in the season.

Georgia Bulldogs fans love to take photos of the school's mascot and the doghouse, which has air conditioning and a door. The mascot, Russ, is also known as Uga IX.

Georgetown University

The doghouse for Georgetown University's bulldog mascot, Jack, was designed by alum Fiona Hanly and was built by Georgetown's employees. It is modeled after Healy Hall, Georgetown's main building, says McKenzie Stough, Jack's caretaker.

Butler University

Mascot Blue II seems to enjoy his doghouse, which is on display in the Butler Bookstore when not used at a football or basketball game. The doghouse was designed to replicate its famous basketball arena and constructed by Shiel Sexton, a local contractor. Butler student Amber Mills designed the graphics. 

Butler University

Butler University's doghouse mirrors historic Hinkle Fieldhouse, the school's famous basketball arena. Some of the cool features include an arched and hinged roof. It can be wheeled to the stadium for football games and the fieldhouse for basketball games, and was designed to fit on a garden cart, says Michael Kaltenmark, Butler's director of external relations and caretaker of mascot Butler Blue III.

Peek Inside the Butler Doghouse

The floor inside this doghouse is real hardwood. Butler's Hinkle Fieldhouse is over 85 years old and still has the original basketball floor inside. Maker Cincinnati Flooring Co. produced a custom, replica floor for the doghouse. Butler student Amber Mills designed the graphics inside and outside the doghouse, which contractor Shiel Sexton designed and constructed.

Wofford College

Wofford College's doghouse is made by Blue Ridge Log Cabins, owned by Wofford alum Chip Smith. The doghouse is made of solid wood, says Lenny Mathis, associate athletic director for marketing at the South Carolina school. He adds that the mascots typically don't sit in the doghouse during the games, but it can keep mascots warm when temperatures drop later in the year.

Wofford College

The log-cabin style doghouse used by Wofford College in South Carolina is accessorized with a sign bearing the school's "Beware of Dog" logo. Blitz III “Magnolia” is the school's youngest mascot, at just 1 year old.

Louisiana Tech

Louisiana Tech architecture students designed and built the doghouse, which is air conditioned, for bulldog mascot Tech XXI.

James Madison University

At James Madison University, the doghouse is decked out in team colors and logos, with a prominent spot on the field (photographed for StadiumJourney.com).

Milwaukee Brewers

Mascot doghouses aren't just for football teams. The Milwaukee Brewers debuted a Cape Cod-style doghouse for mascot Hank in 2014 at Miller Park.
