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.
Dogs need ventilation too: Make sure that you have enough vents (even actual small sized windows in proportion to the overall size of the will do) to allow for sufficient airflow and ventilation. Proper ventilation keeps the dog house from over-heating during summers and prevents suffocation for your dog. Think innovatively and avoid stacking up a doorway. Instead, arrange a thin plastic or rubber flap to work as a door and also make it easy for your dog to step in and out of its abode.
Choosing the Perfect Dog House. The most obvious factor to consider when choosing a dog house is the size of your dog. It should be spacious enough for your dog to stretch or to turn around. Don't buy one that is too large for your pet. Your dog will not be comfortable in a large empty space. Think about the places in your house where your dog likes to sleep and try to match that size; these places will usually be nestled into corners, or on landings, or curled up in a dog bed. Try to find the size that will make your dog as comfortable as possible.
Apart from the tips above, make sure that everything element that goes into building your dog house must be dog-friendly. Also, don't forget to customize – like building a larger back door (that can be opened by humans, but other closed solid in the back acting like the back wall) so that you can come in and clean at regular intervals, painting your dog house in attractive colours, add over-hangs to the roof, etc.
If you cannot bear to see a kennel style dog house you may want to consider wooden dog houses which can double as fancy end tables. These are perfect because your pup can crawl inside comfortably without anyone ever suspecting that it is a dog house. These can be made of hardwood and adorn the colors of cherry wood red, espresso, natural, mahogany and antique black. There is a flexible door so that they can come and go as they please and they are perfect for puppies and smaller dogs. Many of these dog houses come in a variety of sizes depending on your dog's stature. The largest dimensions for the latter type of indoor dog houses are 24 inches wide, 36 inches long and 26 inches high. Depending on your budget these indoor dog houses have a pricing range of $75 to $500.
Dog houses are now not just a matter of shelter for dogs. Today, equal importance, if not more, is given to beautifully designed dog houses which add an extra charm and beauty to the landscape of the owner's house. Hence, new attractive designs emerge regularly, reflecting our evolving choices. T.J Designs, Ash Custom Wood, All Dog Houses, Pet Street Mall, La Petite Maison, Lilliput Play Homes, Petsmart, Petmate, Post Modern Pets, Improvements, Solid Cedar Dog Houses, and Orvis are some companies which provide amazing variety of designs among dog houses.
In a perfect world, you will be able to keep your dog inside. But sometimes that just isn't possible. Perhaps your dog has outgrown your house, or you have a new baby or an elderly relative moving in that you are worried about your dog being around. In either case, the solution is not to simply cast your dog out into the backyard without any shelter. If your dog has to be outside most of the time, it is important to provide a dog house so your dog can continue to live safely and comfortably. Indeed, even if your dog is allowed in the house, a dog house can still be a good idea if your dog will be spending extended periods outside during the day. In such cases, a dog house will provide shade on sunny days, and warmth on cold days.
