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.
Building Your Own Dog House. As a final consideration, if you are particularly handy with tools, consider building the dog house yourself. A number of basic plans are available on the internet for you to choose from. Keep in mind, however, that depending how competent you are with woodwork, this may turn out to be a more expensive option. Additionally, ensure that the dog house you've made is stable and will withstand the elements before putting your dog in it for the night.
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.
Keeping dogs inside the house is not necessary no matter how you clean your dog everyday. But letting them sleep outside with nothing to cover them is not also a good idea for the dogs. Though they can resist the temperature, it would still be better if you give your dogs a place where they can sleep comfortably. Dog house is an item which your dog will sure to love. It will keep them cool during hot summer days and warm in winter months. When it comes to pet houses, it would be a good idea if you choose dog insulated houses. This kind of dog house is very useful in keeping your dogs to feel comfortable. Mostly, wood like cedar is the choice of material used in making insulated house for dogs because it acts as natural insulator.
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.
Dog houses are small shelters kept outside to protect dogs from the elements of nature. They assure that the dog is protected from heat and cold and has plenty of water. Dogs have been man's best friend since at least the ancient days of Egypt. They were often pets and hunting partners. In Egypt, they lived in mud-brick kennels where they were trained. Dogs were also known throughout ancient Greece, China and Rome. Smaller dogs were often kept in the home but nobility and those with the means or necessity kept their dogs in their own houses outside the home.
Saint Bernards are large dogs that are friendly and smart. Because these dogs are so social, you will probably want to keep them in the house with the family most of time. However, there will be times when you might like to leave your dog outdoors for a few hours at a time to bask in the fresh air and sunshine. Even on a sunny day, your dog should have a shelter where it can take refuge from the hot sun or sudden rain showers. A large dog like a Saint Bernard needs a shelter that suits is size. These intelligent and affectionate dogs love to spend time with their owners and they are capable of learning plenty of tricks to keep you entertained.
