Saint Bernards are large dogs that are friendly and smart. Because these dogs are so social, you will probably want to keep them in the house with the family most of time. However, there will be times when you might like to leave your dog outdoors for a few hours at a time to bask in the fresh air and sunshine. Even on a sunny day, your dog should have a shelter where it can take refuge from the hot sun or sudden rain showers. A large dog like a Saint Bernard needs a shelter that suits is size. These intelligent and affectionate dogs love to spend time with their owners and they are capable of learning plenty of tricks to keep you entertained.
There are various factors to look into while buying outdoor dog houses, the most important being the size of your dog. The pet house shouldn't be too big or too small. It should be just right to accommodate your dog inside. There should be just sufficient room for your dog to stand up, lie down and stretch. If you own more than one dog, you could go in for a duplex style house with more than one entryway. If you want something more than an ordinary looking house for your dog, you can buy with windows and shingles and even paint it to match the exteriors of your house. Dog houses even come in different architectural designs and styles.
Keeping dogs inside the house is not necessary no matter how you clean your dog everyday. But letting them sleep outside with nothing to cover them is not also a good idea for the dogs. Though they can resist the temperature, it would still be better if you give your dogs a place where they can sleep comfortably. Dog house is an item which your dog will sure to love. It will keep them cool during hot summer days and warm in winter months. When it comes to pet houses, it would be a good idea if you choose dog insulated houses. This kind of dog house is very useful in keeping your dogs to feel comfortable. Mostly, wood like cedar is the choice of material used in making insulated house for dogs because it acts as natural insulator.
Dog houses are available in different material–wood, plastic, fenced wires, and much more. The design of the dog house differs accordingly too, keeping in tune with the material used in building the dog house. Among woods, cedar, Asian fir, and pine are possibly the most used in building. Fancy, playful designs such as mansion, bungalow, houses with porches, houses with roof porches, and cabin log house are made up of the aforementioned woods.
Dog Homes Made with Wood Offer Great Insulation and Durability. Wooden dog houses are amongst the most common and the most popular types of outdoor dog houses. Wood will always have that charming, rustic look, but it's also one of the best insulators when it comes to pet dwellings. Wooden dog structures, with proper care, are very durable and can last many years. You may not find the same variety of ”shapes” in the wooden varieties that you find with plastic houses, but that doesn't mean you are limited to the classic, snoopy style dog house. You will find some attractive and innovative designs in this category. For instance, there are Mansion dog houses that come complete with patios and lattice fencing. Log dog homes have their own front porch. Two story dog dwellings come with a rooftop patio for the pooch who likes to be able to see what's going on around them and relax in the sun. And, if you need housing for multiple dogs, the duplex styles are a popular choice as this allows your pets to have their own separate rooms within the same house. Of course, one of the main downsides to wooden homes is that they do take some work to set up. Detailed instructions are usually included as part of the packaging or you can find instructional videos online, but if you're not the type of person who enjoys the ”some assembly required” part, you may want to go with a plastic style which are much easier to set up.
You want your pup to feel protected and safe in these indoor housing facilities. Whether you use these houses as traveling pet carriers, outdoor houses or indoor dog houses, your pup should feel relaxed and comfortable. You can use these not only as a place for your pup to stay and sleep but also as a learning center to train your dog to behave and to become accustomed to smaller spaces. These come in a variety of styles so that you can choose your indoor house that matches with your house's interior design.
Plastic Housing – More Variety in Shapes, Better Portability and Easy Assembly. Plastic dog houses are another popular choice. These plastic houses come in fun shapes that aren't available in the wooden varieties and they are generally very hardy and hold up well to the wear and tear of being outdoors. These plastic pet homes are generally very easy to set up, often requiring that a few pieces be clicked into place to get you up and running, which makes them a whole lot easier to move around. However, if you live in an area with extreme climates, you will want to make sure you choose a well insulated dog house, as unlike the wooden variety, not all plastic dog homes are created equal in this regard. Dogloos are igloo dog houses and these have some of the best insulation in this category of housing. The igloo shape and entry tunnel also provides extra protection from the wind, rain and elements. Plastic dog crates can be used as either indoor or outdoor dog homes or dwellings as well, although these are not insulated, so you will want to provide good dog bedding and a crate cover in cooler weather.
