My two have their own crates in our laundry room where they sleep at night and where we can put them if we are going out. It is also very handy to be able to confine them if they are becoming nuisance, such as at dinner time or when we are entertaining. No matter which type of enclosure you select, keep in mind that all dogs like to have that feeling of being secure in a den type atmosphere, in other words, they like being cozy. It's a good idea to have their food and water available in the same area as their dog house. In this way everything is confined and your dog will know it's limits. You can also have all their toys, special blankets and other dog related items right there as well. Since my dogs are actually in a room, I can use a child gate across the opening to lock them in, but they still have that open feeling. This is very handy when I go out or want to put them in ”time out” for being bad.
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.
What are the features I must look for when I buy dog houses? You must pick the right size that suits your dog. The entrance of the kennel must be a little larger than the dog's back. But, at the same time, you must see to it that the entrance is not very big; in that case, the protection from elements offered would be inadequate. The highest point in the shed should be, at the most, 25% taller than your dog in the standing posture. Look out for proper insulation in the dog houses. This will help your dog feel comfortable even on a chilly winter night. Moreover, the shed must be able to keep away not only snow and gale, but also insects and pests. Consider buying a cedar wood house for your dog. Cedar is a natural insulator and rot-resistant. It helps you keep away from termites effectively. You must also ensure that the house you buy for your dog can be cleaned with ease.
