Some are hooked up to electricity and feature lighting, furniture, heating and air conditioning. Some may take things a bit far, installing chandeliers, multiple floors, moulding and tinted window treatments. Those with the finances and the space can have as lavish a home for their dog as they desire. If pooch doesnt seem to be crazy about his new house even if its luxury there are a few ways to remedy this problem. Its important not to make the new abode seem like a place of punishment. Being in the house should be a positive experience.
While a dog house should be big enough so that your dog can stand up, turn around inside and lay down in his favorite position, dont get it too big if it is expected to provide warmth on colder days. This is especially important if you live somewhere that gets a lot of cold weather. For those dog living in moderate climates the sizing isnt as much of a factor.One rule of thumb for sizing, is to draw a rectangle around your dog while he is lying down in his usual position, then make the rectangle 3inches larger than this. For height, make it 57 inches more than your dogs top of shoulder height.
In areas that receive significant snowfall, the roof slope is another factor for consideration. How much time your dog spends outside will have a big influence on the type of dog house needed and where it is situated in your yard. If a dog is in his house a good deal, then it is nice to select one with a roof extending over the entrance so that he can be sheltered from sun and rain while looking out. Maybe even a little deck would be enjoyed. Raised houses are also a good choice for keeping mildew at bay, as well as preventing water or dampness from seeping into the floor.
When it comes to the essentials in doing so, insulated dog houses are the perfect answers to their need for shelter and ample protection. The regular dog house is there keep a dog safe and protected from the elements of nature. It also keeps off other dogs, animals and people from possibly hurting our pets. During harsh weather conditions, however, the common house is not enough. There are three processes known to cause heat. They are convection, conduction and radiation. It is not possible to completely stop the occurrence of heat, but effective insulation can significantly lower down the heat level in a house, whether it is that of man or that of a dog.
For those living in climates that are not extreme either summer or winter, your dog will probably do well in a house appropriate for all seasons. Even when its the rainy season, many dog houses have easy to attach doors that can be removed when not needed. But, for the more extreme climates, insulated houses work the best for retaining warmth in the winter and providing a cooler interior during hot summer days. Additionally, if your dog need more climate control, most doghouses can hooked up with a combination heater/air conditioning unit.
