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.
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.
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.
So Fido is in the back yard and it is starting to get cold outside. You need to get a dog house for him, but should you buy one or build one? There are plenty of dog homes available for purchase either online or at a pet store. However, if you are looking for quality, something that will last, you may want to do it yourself and build your own. So how do you go about finding quality dog house plans that will produce a final product that will hold up and keep your dog warm? First, you must choose the kind of dog house you may need. Do you have a small dog, a large dog, or two dogs? Do you need the dog house to be insulated or not? This may depend on where you live and how cold it gets. If you don't build an insulated house, how will you keep your doggy warm? You can use blankets, burrow beds, or can heat your dog house, but in the end it is probably best to make it insulated to help keep it cool in the summer months and warm during the bitter cold of winter.
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.
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!
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.
