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.
Try to face dog houses where they get the most sun in cold climates and the least sun in warm climates, where there is not a lot of wind, and where your dog can keep an eye on you and your property. If he doesn't want to go in his house after a few weeks, try simply rotating the dog house or move it to a new location. Every dog should have a dog house if they are outside without human supervision. Little dogs especially can get cold very quickly in inclement weather. At the same time, some dogs won't ever use a dog house, so don't feel too bad if your dog chooses to sit on his house in the rain. At least he has a dog house to use however he wants.
The next important consideration is climate. If you live in a very hot place, get a dog house that is well ventilated. Some manufactures offer raised dog houses to allow for an even greater air flow around and through the dog house. Alternatively, if the heat is really bad, you can even purchase dog houses with air conditioning. If you choose to go this route, be sure that it has a door with a good seal to help keep the electricity bills down. If you are more concerned about snow than heat waves, choose a dog house that is waterproof and well insulated. As a bonus for your pet, you can purchase a heated pet bed.
