Socorro Dawson. Dog Houses. February 13th , 2018.
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.
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.
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.
If you are choosing a dog house for an older dog that you are adopting or a new house for a senior dog you already have, then age does have a bearing. Youll want to take a closer look at the comfort and warmth the house can provide. In this case insulated houses are better shelters and can be fitted out with substantial dog pads for comfort. When it comes to appearance, how much fur does your dog have? On cold winter days, a large and heavily coated breed will not need the same kind of shelter as a small or sparsely coated dog.
When looking for an indoor dog house you will have many features to consider. Such features include a flexible doggy door, a latch hook to keep your dog from leaving the house, ventilation options, comfort padding options, quick clean options in case of accidents, housing style whether it be wicker, wire, good or mesh, and a pet guarantee. You want your pup to feel protected and safe in these indoor housing facilities. Whether you use these houses as traveling pet carriers, outdoor houses or indoor dog houses, your pup should feel relaxed and comfortable.
