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.
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.
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.
