ASL Solutions Inc. was founded in 2000. The two founders Howard Atkison and Bob Guinn have over 60 years of manufacturing experience. They have had more than four generations of large outside dogs in their immediate families. For years they have searched for a manufactured dog house with real insulation and a door that could not be destroyed. This combination of events has led to the creation of the "Dog Palace" insulated dog house. This is the first manufactured insulated dog house with real foam (Styro/EPS) insulation and an indestructible self- closing insulated door. ASL had several requests for a smaller dog house that had all of the features of the "Dog Palace". In June 2006 they began manufacturing their new smaller insulated dog house the DP Hunter. The DP Hunter has all the features of the original "Dog Palace" but is sized for smaller dogs (beagles, dachshund, etc.) or cats.
