Try to face dog houses where they get the most sun in cold climates and the least sun in warm climates, where there is not a lot of wind, and where your dog can keep an eye on you and your property. If he doesn't want to go in his house after a few weeks, try simply rotating the dog house or move it to a new location. Every dog should have a dog house if they are outside without human supervision. Little dogs especially can get cold very quickly in inclement weather. At the same time, some dogs won't ever use a dog house, so don't feel too bad if your dog chooses to sit on his house in the rain. At least he has a dog house to use however he wants.
The next important consideration is climate. If you live in a very hot place, get a dog house that is well ventilated. Some manufactures offer raised dog houses to allow for an even greater air flow around and through the dog house. Alternatively, if the heat is really bad, you can even purchase dog houses with air conditioning. If you choose to go this route, be sure that it has a door with a good seal to help keep the electricity bills down. If you are more concerned about snow than heat waves, choose a dog house that is waterproof and well insulated. As a bonus for your pet, you can purchase a heated pet bed.
Start with a solid foundation: Dog houses are built of wood mostly. However, any kind of wood won't do. Start with the size of your dog and try to build a house around it's size – not the size when it's a little puppy but the actual size it's expected to grow to. If you are using artificial wood or pre-treated wood panels, make sure that you neutralize the chemicals since some of these can be harmful for animals. Better still, avoid using artificial wood panels altogether.
