Of course you can use your dog door as a window for your dog's home. These plastic, clear doors will help keep the elements out and will give your dog a place to look out if he wants to. If you are building your own house for your dog, I recommend you build an insulated dog house that is easy to clean. I would have either the roof or one of the walls open so you can easily clean your dog's home every so often. You might also want to invest in a burrow bed during the winter months or add a heater to keep your dog plenty warm.
Insulated houses for dogs come in a wide variety of styles and sizes. They are also made using different materials but some materials are better than the others. Some people opt for houses made from plastic since these shelters are lightweight, cheap and they repel insects. While these units can help protect dogs from rain, snow and wind, they are not effective in retaining the heat that emanates from the dog's body. These types of pet houses can't provide ample protection from the extreme heat of the sun. There are even plastic houses that can make dogs feel hotter instead of cooling their body temperature down.
Most people think of outdoor dog houses when they thing of a dog house. However, there are also indoor dog houses. Which are perfect if you want to keep your dog safe while indoors. These dog houses are a great way to control your dog's movement. If you are training your dog you may also want to consider an indoor dog house. Many people don't like the fact that their dog has to sleep outside at night and therefore choose the dog house option.
Wood shelters built with Cedar wood typically offer the best protection for dogs. Cedar wood has superior properties that enable it to trap and repel heat whenever necessary. Most Cedar wood houses for dogs have special Therma-Ply linings to make them even more efficient in making dogs comfortable. The innovative Therma-Ply material repels the summer heat that strikes a dog house to prevent interior overheating. It's also capable of trapping heat to keep your dog warm during chilly months.
If you have a canine that is 20 pounds or less, then your pet would fall into the small category. Beyond that weight you would jump into the medium and then large variety. Of course, if your small Dachshund weighs in at 30 pounds, you have a much different problem. At the moment I have two pets that qualify for this small designation, so I can relate to how you feel about your little friend. The little dogs tend to be underfoot more than large dogs and are often hard to see when on the floor. This becomes a big issue for older people or people that have vision difficulties.
Insulated houses are what dogs really need since these houses are built with dogs' ultimate welfare in mind. When your dog's house is not properly insulated, you can see your dog panting with its tongue sticking out when it feels extremely hot, or curling up when it feels really cold. Dogs are vulnerable to outside elements because they are not fully protected by their fur. Providing dogs with insulated dog houses will make them comfortable, relaxed and happy.
Wood is probably the most durable material for dog houses because of its resistant to weather and elements so it can stand for a longer time outside the house. Particularly, Cedar wood is soft kind of wood that offers convenience in the construction process. It is also resistant to rot and insects so you will be assured that your dogs will be safe in their house. Dog houses help maintain the cleanliness of your pet as they don't need to sleep directly in the ground. However, you still need to clean the house of your pet to properly maintain the hygiene of your dog and to also give them a clean ambiance. Once or twice a week, sweep the inside of the house to get rid of the furs and other dirt. You may also change the beddings or pillows of the dog. Regarding with this, dog house units are made with detachable roof for easy cleaning. Giving your dogs their own place and maintaining its cleanliness will make the pets happy and will keep them healthy. So don't hesitate to purchase or create insulated dog houses for a better and peaceful sleep of your beloved pets.
