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 Fido is in the back yard and it is starting to get cold outside. You need to get a dog house for him, but should you buy one or build one? There are plenty of dog homes available for purchase either online or at a pet store. However, if you are looking for quality, something that will last, you may want to do it yourself and build your own. So how do you go about finding quality dog house plans that will produce a final product that will hold up and keep your dog warm? First, you must choose the kind of dog house you may need. Do you have a small dog, a large dog, or two dogs? Do you need the dog house to be insulated or not? This may depend on where you live and how cold it gets. If you don't build an insulated house, how will you keep your doggy warm? You can use blankets, burrow beds, or can heat your dog house, but in the end it is probably best to make it insulated to help keep it cool in the summer months and warm during the bitter cold of winter.
Have a plan: As it is true for most things, don't even begin to think about how to build a dog house without a plan. Start with the base in tune with the foundations you have approximated for the dog size (make allowances and build a much bigger dog house than what you expect your dog to grow up to). Similarly, construct or prepare panels for the four edges and make sure that the insides of the panels (the interiors of the kennel) are smooth. Also think of a roof with appropriate vents for air passage.
