Apart from the tips above, make sure that everything element that goes into building your dog house must be dog-friendly.

If you cannot bear to see a kennel style dog house you may want to consider wooden dog houses which can double as fancy end tables. These are perfect because your pup can crawl inside comfortably without anyone ever suspecting that it is a dog house. These can be made of hardwood and adorn the colors of cherry wood red, espresso, natural, mahogany and antique black. There is a flexible door so that they can come and go as they please and they are perfect for puppies and smaller dogs. Many of these dog houses come in a variety of sizes depending on your dog's stature. The largest dimensions for the latter type of indoor dog houses are 24 inches wide, 36 inches long and 26 inches high. Depending on your budget these indoor dog houses have a pricing range of $75 to $500.
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.
Portable Dog Houses. If you only need a dog house on a temporary basis, you should consider purchasing a portable dog house.

Dog houses help maintain the cleanliness of your pet as they don't need to sleep directly in the ground. However, you still need to clean the house of your pet to properly maintain the hygiene of your dog and to also give them a clean ambiance. Once or twice a week, sweep the inside of the house to get rid of the furs and other dirt. You may also change the beddings or pillows of the dog. Regarding with this, dog house units are made with detachable roof for easy cleaning. Giving your dogs their own place and maintaining its cleanliness will make the pets happy and will keep them healthy. So don't hesitate to purchase or create insulated dog houses for a better and peaceful sleep of your beloved pets.
Other Styles of Dog Dwellings. There are some other lesser known types of outdoor dog houses, such as metal dog houses and dog boxes which are more of a specialty item. These are often used for hunting dogs and some can be placed in the back of a pickup truck. Barrel shaped dog homes are made using old wine barrels. This is a nice eco-friendly option, but is also said to resemble the type of ”den” a dog would naturally live in if he were in the wild.
Insulated houses for dogs come in a wide variety of styles and sizes. They are also made using different materials but some materials are better than the others. Some people opt for houses made from plastic since these shelters are lightweight, cheap and they repel insects. While these units can help protect dogs from rain, snow and wind, they are not effective in retaining the heat that emanates from the dog's body. These types of pet houses can't provide ample protection from the extreme heat of the sun. There are even plastic houses that can make dogs feel hotter instead of cooling their body temperature down.
