Dog Houses. Tuesday , February 13th , 2018 - 10:51:52 AM
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.
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.
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.
