The first tip when preparing or implementing the plans to build your dog house is to use material from licensed dealers. Purchasing wood and other requirements from licensed dealers often saves you more money in the future because the durability is guaranteed. Unlicensed dealers may offer cheaper materials but the durability is questionable. Often these materials end up becoming unsuitable for your dog house and may lead to a lot of frustration. Licensed dealers are also able to advice you on the material best for your dog house with reference to the breed and personality of your dog. They are also able to provide tips on which materials can be mixed easily to save costs and produce a durable house for your dog.
Wood shelters built with Cedar wood typically offer the best protection for dogs. Cedar wood has superior properties that enable it to trap and repel heat whenever necessary. Most Cedar wood houses for dogs have special Therma-Ply linings to make them even more efficient in making dogs comfortable. The innovative Therma-Ply material repels the summer heat that strikes a dog house to prevent interior overheating. It's also capable of trapping heat to keep your dog warm during chilly months.
Plastic Housing – More Variety in Shapes, Better Portability and Easy Assembly. Plastic dog houses are another popular choice. These plastic houses come in fun shapes that aren't available in the wooden varieties and they are generally very hardy and hold up well to the wear and tear of being outdoors. These plastic pet homes are generally very easy to set up, often requiring that a few pieces be clicked into place to get you up and running, which makes them a whole lot easier to move around. However, if you live in an area with extreme climates, you will want to make sure you choose a well insulated dog house, as unlike the wooden variety, not all plastic dog homes are created equal in this regard. Dogloos are igloo dog houses and these have some of the best insulation in this category of housing. The igloo shape and entry tunnel also provides extra protection from the wind, rain and elements. Plastic dog crates can be used as either indoor or outdoor dog homes or dwellings as well, although these are not insulated, so you will want to provide good dog bedding and a crate cover in cooler weather.
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.
If you have a large dog, then you have probably already realized that the average sized dog house is not suitable for your super sized pet. If your dog is particularly large, consider one of the available giant dog houses to give your dog the most room and comfort. There are many large dog breeds that can benefit from a larger than usual dog house. These large breeds deserve the extra space that these larger dog houses provide. Responsible pet owners never keep their beloved companion animals in a shelter that is too small to meet their needs.
Portable Dog Houses. If you only need a dog house on a temporary basis, you should consider purchasing a portable dog house. Resembling a small tent, they are collapsible and, as the name indicates, light and easy to transport. While not designed to withstand a winter storm, they are usually made of very breathable materials and can provided a convenient and comfortable home away from home when travelling with your dog. If you plan to use a portable dog house while on the road, however, you should get your dog used to using it at home first before trying it in a new place where your dog may feel ill at ease.
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.
