Socorro Dawson. Dog Houses. February 10th , 2018.
Houses that are too big can make the interior temperature too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. There are many types of dog houses. Many immediately think of the typical house with a peaked roof and arched doorway, but there is a large variety available. The typical house has a pitched roof and is the most popular style. There are also single panel flat roofs and loft roofs, which feature a sun deck on the roof. Doors on these houses are useful for temperature control.
Plastic dog houses are another popular choice. These plastic houses come in fun shapes that arent available in the wooden varieties and they are generally very hardy and hold up well to the wear and tear of being outdoors. These plastic pet homes are generally very easy to set up, often requiring that a few pieces be clicked into place to get you up and running, which makes them a whole lot easier to move around. However, if you live in an area with extreme climates, you will want to make sure you choose a well insulated dog house, as unlike the wooden variety, not all plastic dog homes are created equal in this regard.
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.
Now you have your dog house. But where should you put it? The placement of dog houses should be less about where it looks good and more about where he will like it. Most dogs will not use a poorlyplaced dog house unless the weather is horrible. Try to face dog houses where they get the most sun in cold climates and the least sun in warm climates, where there is not a lot of wind, and where your dog can keep an eye on you and your property. If he doesnt want to go in his house after a few weeks, try simply rotating the dog house or move it to a new location.
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.
