There is a variety of things you can add to the room, for instance: a small bed for the dog, put the leeches on a hanger, the plate for food and one for water, the dogs toys/ bones in a nice box, a poster, wallpaper (could be dogs footprints ) and you can add a small shower for the dog.

Where to Build The Dogs Room?
This room can be in the basement at any corner. Another really good place for the dogs room would be under the stairs as in the picture on the right. Since this area is usually idle, a dogs room would be perfect for that space. Also instead if a walk in closet in one of the rooms, you can alternate the closet to your dogs new room. If you have a big dog it's better to have the room in the basement as it would probably have more space.
