Dog houses are available in different material–wood, plastic, fenced wires, and much more. The design of the dog house differs accordingly too, keeping in tune with the material used in building the dog house. Among woods, cedar, Asian fir, and pine are possibly the most used in building. Fancy, playful designs such as mansion, bungalow, houses with porches, houses with roof porches, and cabin log house are made up of the aforementioned woods.
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.
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.
My two have their own crates in our laundry room where they sleep at night and where we can put them if we are going out. It is also very handy to be able to confine them if they are becoming nuisance, such as at dinner time or when we are entertaining. No matter which type of enclosure you select, keep in mind that all dogs like to have that feeling of being secure in a den type atmosphere, in other words, they like being cozy. It's a good idea to have their food and water available in the same area as their dog house. In this way everything is confined and your dog will know it's limits. You can also have all their toys, special blankets and other dog related items right there as well. Since my dogs are actually in a room, I can use a child gate across the opening to lock them in, but they still have that open feeling. This is very handy when I go out or want to put them in ”time out” for being bad.
Outside of a book, a dog is man's best friend. Obviously your four-legged pal needs utmost care and affection and any dog owner would subscribe to that fact. Dogs are considered family for most people and they are even treated as such. For that reason, taking care of your canines is one of the foremost responsibilities of a dog owner. One of the things dog owners must focus on is to build a comfortable resting place for a dog. However, just like you spend a lot of time and effort thinking about your abode, utmost care must be taken while when you decide to build a dog house for your dog.
What is the price range for the dog houses? Well, the prices vary a lot, based on your requirements and the features of the houses. You get them at a price as low as $75 and even as high as $5000. If you want a simple and plain one, you can get one for fewer than 100 dollars. However, if you want the best material possible and every feature to the advantage of your pet, the prices are towards the higher side of the scale.
If you own dogs, then you find you need a house for them. In the current system it is hard to find people living and sleeping with their animals. Not only do the dogs take up a lot of space, you may also find that some family members are allergic to the dogs or that the home is full of delicate and costly collections which require quite an amount of care to handle. There are ready-made dog houses should you require one that come with all the components prepared and just require to be assembled. However, you will find that the commercial ones are indeed very costly and often not affordable to many people. To save on costs, you can embark on a project to build your dog a home. The process of building it is not only simple it also requires very little effort. The process can be made even easier with dog house plans that you can either prepare yourself or purchase from the internet and local hardware store.
