Dog Houses. Sunday , February 11th , 2018 - 11:48:35 AM
Having an insulated house for dogs with higher Rvalues is an overall better choice. To start off, one has to decide on the make of the house. The best one would be wood especially that of cedar wood, which is what most high quality dog houses are made of. Wood is a natural insulator. It can do a lot of magic when simply added with a layer of Styrofoam or any other insulators. Dog igloos and plastic dog houses, on the other hand, have its advantage in terms of being highly resistant to water and insects.
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.
When you think about it, a dogs house is more or less the equivalent of a dog crate, which is more or less the equivalent of a dogs den. If you have trained you dog in a crate from the time he was a puppy then transitioning your dog to use an outside dog house will be a lot easier. Hell already be den oriented. But because his new digs will be outside, youll want to spend a bit of time taking steps to review these things: his size, age and appearance, climate, how much will be spent outside, and his outdoor habits.
