Dog Houses. Tuesday , February 13th , 2018 - 11:34:19 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.
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.
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.
