Whatever may be the style and design of your it, ultimately it should serve the purpose for what it is purchased i.e. provide shelter and protection to your dog from all kinds of external elements. Wood and metal are the most popular materials to make outdoor dog houses. Plastic is also preferred as it is water repellent and easy for air to circulate. They are a necessity for every dog. So, look into all the factors before buying one for your dog.
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.
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.
When it comes to getting an insulated house that your dog can use for many years, an insulated dog house made from wood has been proven to provide any dog with optimum protection. Insulated wood houses for dogs generally cost more but they look better and most importantly, they function as a natural insulator. The wood used in building these houses keeps your pet comfortable inside and creates a perfect ambient temperature for your dog to enjoy.
Other Styles of Dog Dwellings. There are some other lesser known types of outdoor dog houses, such as metal dog houses and dog boxes which are more of a specialty item. These are often used for hunting dogs and some can be placed in the back of a pickup truck. Barrel shaped dog homes are made using old wine barrels. This is a nice eco-friendly option, but is also said to resemble the type of ”den” a dog would naturally live in if he were in the wild.
If you own dogs, then you find you need a house for them. In the current system it is hard to find people living and sleeping with their animals. Not only do the dogs take up a lot of space, you may also find that some family members are allergic to the dogs or that the home is full of delicate and costly collections which require quite an amount of care to handle. There are ready-made dog houses should you require one that come with all the components prepared and just require to be assembled. However, you will find that the commercial ones are indeed very costly and often not affordable to many people. To save on costs, you can embark on a project to build your dog a home. The process of building it is not only simple it also requires very little effort. The process can be made even easier with dog house plans that you can either prepare yourself or purchase from the internet and local hardware store.
An insulated dog house will make sure your dog is comfortable during its stay outside. It's a specially designed shelter that makes use of high quality material handpicked for its efficient insulating properties. A dog house with insulation can repel some of the heat during sunny and hot days. During nippy and colder months, its interiors are kept warm and comfortable. When purchasing a dog house, you don't have to settle for anything fancy but you need to make sure you choose the one that provides the ultimate protection and comfort for your furry buddy.
