Living the Dog Life at The Kennels, a Private Members Club

​“Dogs live with man as courtiers round a monarch, steeped in the flattery of his notice and enriched with sinecures,” wrote Robert Louis Stevenson in The Character of Dogs. But could any pooch know pampering such as this? Hound Lodge, on the Goodwood Estate in the south of England, was considered by the British nobility to be the most luxurious doghouse in the world.
