Thanks to one awfully considerate human, we now have an official word for the canine equivalent of a man cave: a dog boudoir.

When Sean Farrell rescued Buster, a 12-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, he learned that the precious animal had undergone some pretty traumatic experiences that left him with a fear of being around single men. According to his owner, Buster also had a tendency to isolate himself unless in the bedroom, only coming out for food and walks. In an effort to bring Buster out of his shell and to gain the animal’s trust, Sean decided to build Buster’s Boudoir.

“The boudoir was an idea to give Buster a cozy space of his own in the same room as me. To really let him know he can be safe around me and feel secure in his little den at the same time. [After finishing it], he went in there almost instantly. It has been a few weeks now and he’s happy to sleep and hang out in his house,” Sean tells Bored Panda.

After a glimpse at Buster’s chill hangout spot, it’s not hard to see why he loves it. Despite his lack of carpentry experience, Sean combined a little bit of ingenuity, wood and plyboard and produced a cozy carpeted room that has a battery-operated cooling fan, shelves (because a dog’s gotta have knickknacks), mood lighting and a TV. There’s also a photo of Sean’s late dog Zook.

Sean spent four days and between $100 and $130 to complete the entire project, which has been declared an absolute success by tons of people on social media.

In addition to helping Buster heal from his painful past, Sean is also extremely happy that his loving bond with the rescue dog can help to balance some of the negative attention the breed receives.
