This seems sensible. In this case, the tags should be added to a node from
the building's outline, rather than to an amenity, shouldn't they?

Huh. I didn't know that was a thing. Some cities have no facilities for dogs

amenity=animal_boarding is meant for pet resorts with caretakers. I can't
find a standard tag for doghouses... Maybe amenity=shelter or building=roof?

I don't think they should share any tag as the only thing they have in
common is that they're both intended for dogs to wait inside.
