Caseta de perro

This is a discussion thread for the Daily Spanish Word for August 23, 2009

caseta de perro (feminine noun (la)) — kennel, doghouse. Look up caseta de perro in the dictionary

Hicimos una caseta de perro afuera en el patio para que mi perrito tenga dónde dormir.
We built a doghouse outside in the backyard so my little doggy has a place to sleep.

So, um.... you don't need to say something like "...tenga un lugar donde dormir" or something?

I think I have seen 'perrera' as well?

Is there a difference between 'caseta de perro' and 'perrera'?

You can, but you don't have to.

I'm not sure, a native speaker will have to answer.

Perrera is a word used for the dog pound or the vehicle they drive around in picking up stray animals.

My

Also, slangily refers to the paddy wagon .......where they take you to jail!

cucha.
1.
f. Yacija del perro.
2. f. fest. coloq. cama (‖ armazón para que las personas se acuesten). Me voy a la cucha.

cucha.
1. interj. U. para ordenar a un perro que se acueste.
~ ahí.
1. loc. interj. cucha.

Pd: Oh wow I just got balloons because I made the 500 posts...

we use "caseta (de perro)" here in Spain.
"perrera" it's a place where (usually) more than one dog sleeps.
So it's used for a big "caseta de perro", for the goverment building wich captures/cares for street dogs, and for a place where you can leave your dog while you're on holidays.

Saludos

¡Muchas gracias amigo.. !

Sounds like it would be a 'dog pound' then indeed.. I.e. a kind of animal/dog shelter for stray dogs or public place for dogs to stay when you are on holiday.


PD: The balloons look very festive..! Fiesta!!
