‘someone in the dog house’

When you say that a person is in the doghouse, what you mean is that others are annoyed with him because of something that he has done.

For example, when a man forgets his wife’s birthday, he’s really in the doghouse. * The children were in the doghouse because they broke a couple of window panes while playing cricket.
