Dog Houses. Tuesday , February 13th , 2018 - 17:33:25 PM
These structures resemble a dog crate or a dog tent. If you have a young dog or a chewer or digger, the plastic dog crate house may stand up better than the fabric varieties. A fabric or foldable dog tent or dog dwelling works well for the more mature dog. These portable structures are very lightweight and can be used to protect your dog in temporary outdoor situations, during vacations, camping trips, etc. There are some other lesser known types of outdoor dog houses, such as metal dog houses and dog boxes which are more of a specialty item.
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.
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.
