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.
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.
Should you find free plans to build your house for your dog? This might sound like a good option at first, but I would probably discourage this. Why? The quality of the plans may not be as good. Also, you are investing in materials and you want something that will result in a home for your dog that will last and that you can be proud of. How large of a home should I build for my dog? This all depends on the size of your dog. It also depends on if it is insulated or not. If it isn't insulated, you don't want to make the house much bigger than your dog. This way the natural heat from your dog will more likely be retained. Even if it is insulated, you don't want to make the dog house too large, instead you want it to be big enough, but still cozy.

If your dog doesn't have a specific place or dog house to call home where they can be confined some of the time, they will wander all over your house and become a problem. This is especially true if you have guests or a large family. Since they tend to move very quickly, small dogs can be in the way and in danger before you even realize it. They can even bolt out of the door and into the street before you can catch them. Because of this I firmly believe that your small dog should have their own dog house within your house. The home you designate for them doesn't have to be anything fancy or specially made.
Wolfdogs can weigh up to 135 pounds, making them a rather large dog that needs a large dog house available for times that it spends outdoors. These wolf-dog crossbreeds are fiercely loyal to their owners and tend to have a strong pack mentality. Most wolfdog owners keep these canines outside for security purposes, so they will always need to have proper available shelter. Wolfdogs can be intimidating. It's important to make sure they are always kept within a fenced area so they don't roam loose in the neighborhood. Rottweilers are another wonderful large dog breed. They are territorial and protective, but they can make excellent companions with the right training. Rottweilers enjoy lots of room and wide open spaces. They don't enjoy being cramped up in too-small dog houses. That makes them another breed that deserves a bigger option in houses. With loving and patient owners, Rottweilers can be just as affectionate as any other breed of dog.
Indoor dog houses come in various options such as soft indoor dog houses, dog pen indoor dog houses and table indoor dog houses. The soft indoor houses are like over size gym bags with padding and mesh siding. Therefore your pup can see exactly what is going on and receives top quality ventilation. They are also super comfortable given the extra padding. These can also double as pet carriers. If you are going on vacation you may want your dog to use this indoor housing to prepare him for the trip.
