Most dog owners have no choice but to leave their dogs outside almost throughout the day and at night. As living creatures, dogs also have feelings and deserve to be treated well. Hence, it becomes the owner's duty to provide a sheltered home for their pet which will protect them from extreme heat, cold and rain which otherwise has a tendency to upset your dog's health. One way of showing your concern is to provide your pet with proper outdoor houses. Dog houses come in different styles and materials and you can choose them depending on your individual dog needs.
Portable Dog Houses. If you only need a dog house on a temporary basis, you should consider purchasing a portable dog house. Resembling a small tent, they are collapsible and, as the name indicates, light and easy to transport. While not designed to withstand a winter storm, they are usually made of very breathable materials and can provided a convenient and comfortable home away from home when travelling with your dog. If you plan to use a portable dog house while on the road, however, you should get your dog used to using it at home first before trying it in a new place where your dog may feel ill at ease.
Portable or Fabric Dog Homes. If you are often on the go and need a place to keep your dog while out and about, you will want to look into a portable dog house. These structures resemble a dog crate or a dog tent. If you have a young dog or a chewer or digger, the plastic dog crate house may stand up better than the fabric varieties. A fabric or foldable dog tent or dog dwelling works well for the more mature dog. These portable structures are very lightweight and can be used to protect your dog in temporary outdoor situations, during vacations, camping trips, etc.
So for your dog to be happy, pick a dog house that is big enough for your dog to stand up and turn around in, but not much bigger than that because your dog's body heat helps warm up the dog house in the winter. For small dogs and dogs from warmer climates, look for insulated or double-walled dog houses. Insulated dog houses stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer, just like human houses. If you get a lot of wind, you may want to add a door, which are available for most dog houses. Finally, if you live in an area of extreme hot or cold, you may consider a heated or air-conditioned house for your dog, but I would recommend checking with your vet first.
Hey, you're reading my uncensored study of what I really thought about Build Your Own Dog House. Take notice of that this is a journal. Why am I writing this? Well, when I was thinking to Build a House for my Dog, there wasn't many real articles around. So, I thought I'd do a quick write-up to help some of you who are in the same situation I was. But be warned, I'll be going into the good and the bad points, so if that's not something you would like to read, you might may as well leave now.
Works as a Heating Unit, Too. One of the best things about the dog air conditioner is that it also works as a heating unit. It will keep your dog's house warm in the winter and delightfully cool in the summer. Your dog will love its new house since you can now control the climate to meet his heating and cooling needs. Lightweight and Portable. The air conditioner for your dog's house is a lightweight and portable unit that is very easy to install. You can purchase an insulated doghouse that works perfectly with these units, or you can attach the unit to the house that you already have. These units are very easy to install. It will take less than an hour – just grab your favorite flat head screw driver and an electric drill. Just place the air conditioning unit on a flat level surface and connect the flexible air input and output ducts to your dog house. Plug it in, set the desired temperature and you are good to go!
Have a plan: As it is true for most things, don't even begin to think about how to build a dog house without a plan. Start with the base in tune with the foundations you have approximated for the dog size (make allowances and build a much bigger dog house than what you expect your dog to grow up to). Similarly, construct or prepare panels for the four edges and make sure that the insides of the panels (the interiors of the kennel) are smooth. Also think of a roof with appropriate vents for air passage.
