Choosing the Perfect Dog House. The most obvious factor to consider when choosing a dog house is the size of your dog. It should be spacious enough for your dog to stretch or to turn around. Don't buy one that is too large for your pet. Your dog will not be comfortable in a large empty space. Think about the places in your house where your dog likes to sleep and try to match that size; these places will usually be nestled into corners, or on landings, or curled up in a dog bed. Try to find the size that will make your dog as comfortable as possible.
When it comes to getting an insulated house that your dog can use for many years, an insulated dog house made from wood has been proven to provide any dog with optimum protection. Insulated wood houses for dogs generally cost more but they look better and most importantly, they function as a natural insulator. The wood used in building these houses keeps your pet comfortable inside and creates a perfect ambient temperature for your dog to enjoy.
There are various factors to look into while buying outdoor dog houses, the most important being the size of your dog. The pet house shouldn't be too big or too small. It should be just right to accommodate your dog inside. There should be just sufficient room for your dog to stand up, lie down and stretch. If you own more than one dog, you could go in for a duplex style house with more than one entryway. If you want something more than an ordinary looking house for your dog, you can buy with windows and shingles and even paint it to match the exteriors of your house. Dog houses even come in different architectural designs and styles.
If you have a dog that stays outside, even for a few minutes, you need to get a dog house for your pet. Small dogs are especially vulnerable to the weather, so make sure you pamper your pooches properly by buying appropriate dog houses using the following tips: Just like housing for humans, dog houses range from basic to designer, with the respective price tags attached. Again, like housing for humans, you need to take into account the basic needs of the occupant, your dog. Your dog's size and coat will help you on your search for prime pup real estate.
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.
A good pet house should be a complete weatherproof kennel that shields your pet from unmanageable heat, cold, wind, rain and even precipitation. The conventional houses are made of wood with a triangle roof. Building a house can be fun. However, these days, they are made out of other materials such as plastic and foam. Cedar wood is also being preferred by dog owners these days to make outdoor dog houses. Depending on your budget and your buying capacity, you could go in for economical ones or extravagant dog houses. Whatever type you choose, there is no dearth for dog houses in the market.
