Understanding the importance of pets in the family, Clayton Homes now offers features specifically designed for pets.

We’ve added several special features to enhance the home life and create more opportunities for interaction between pets and their owners.

Clayton Homes, a builder of manufactured homes, is introducing luxury living to its four-legged fans in the form of custom features designed specifically for pets.

Clayton Homes has recognized the need for homes with pet-efficient features that include innovative spaces and details specifically designed for animal lovers. As the number of families with pets grows, so does the demand for homes to suit the lifestyles of these furry family members. According to the American Pet Products Association, 68 percent of American households (or 82.5 million homes) have pets, and it is estimated that Americans will spend close to $59 billion on pets this year.*

“When you’re buying a home, it’s important that you consider every member of the family, and pets are a part of our families,” said Clayton Homes CEO Kevin Clayton. “We’ve added several special features to enhance the home life and create more opportunities for interaction between pets and their owners.”

Southern Energy Homes of Texas, a subsidiary of Clayton Homes, builds one of the most popular pet-friendly home designs called The Ashford. This home offers optional pet friendly features such as:

  •     Convenient pet wash station in the home’s mudroom
  •     Stow-away pet food and water dish drawer
  •     Window seating – which the furry friends love so they can see outside
  •     Enclosed sunroom for outside meals - where pets can enjoy the weather safely, without wandering off
  •     High-end kitchen upgrades such as custom backsplash, stainless appliances, an island and marble countertops give customers a truly modernized home so they can enjoy the home just as much as their pets.

“Pets have always been cherished, but now they play an even greater role in their owner’s lifestyle decisions,” said Clayton. “As a result, more pet owners are considering their pets’ needs when looking for a home, and we want to support that and be advocates of that special bond. Our affordable options also offer an alternative to renting, which often inhibits a family from owning a pet of their own.”
