Elvira Donovan. Dog Houses. February 18th , 2018.
In Egypt, they lived in mudbrick kennels where they were trained. Dogs were also known throughout ancient Greece, China and Rome. Smaller dogs were often kept in the home but nobility and those with the means or necessity kept their dogs in their own houses outside the home. There are a few factors to consider when selecting a dog house to purchase such as the size of the dog, the size of the backyard and the material and design of the house. Bigger doesnt always mean better: the dog should be able to enter and exit the house and lay down in it comfortably.
Finally, if you live in an area of extreme hot or cold, you may consider a heated or airconditioned house for your dog, but I would recommend checking with your vet first. You should also provide bedding inside your dogs house. Old towels, blankets, or sheets make good bedding. In wintertime, put a thick folded layer down for insulation from the cold ground, then put more bedding on top. In summertime, put just enough bedding in so your dog can choose to lie on the cool floor of his dog house or on the bedding.
Many of these dog houses come in a variety of sizes depending on your dogs stature. The largest dimensions for the latter type of indoor dog houses are 24 inches wide, 36 inches long and 26 inches high. Indoor dog houses are not just for dogs to relax or sleep in at night but can also be very useful for dog training. Many dogs are uncomfortable in carrying cases so if they become accustomed to being in a smaller area then this is one form of training. It is also good for dogs who have not yet been house trained so that they can use their indoor dog house at night instead of on your living room floor carpets.
When you install the dog house you also need to make sure that you keep the house elevated from the ground. This will help you to keep the ground dry. You must also pay a great amount of attention to the kind of material used for building the house. The house must be able to bear the conditions like rainfall and snowfall. You can even go for the outdoor dog kennel if you want. You must also make sure that you can remove the roof of the house so that you can clean the house properly. So start building dog house now.
