Dog Houses. Sunday , February 11th , 2018 - 12:39:49 PM
In Egypt, they lived in mudbrick kennels where they were trained. Dogs were also known throughout ancient Greece, China and Rome. Smaller dogs were often kept in the home but nobility and those with the means or necessity kept their dogs in their own houses outside the home. There are a few factors to consider when selecting a dog house to purchase such as the size of the dog, the size of the backyard and the material and design of the house. Bigger doesnt always mean better: the dog should be able to enter and exit the house and lay down in it comfortably.
The houses can be made of plastic, metal, fiberglass or wood. Plastic ones are the easiest to clean, while the wooden ones are the most traditional. Houses with removable roofs provide easy access to the dog. Some houses are portable and some are even inflatable. Kennels refer to crates and carriers used for travel. Also available are dog tents and dog boxes. They all slightly differ and are appropriate for various uses. Some houses for dogs can be extraordinarily lavish. Many are designed to look like villas, mansions, palaces, castles, estates or almost anything else.
So for your dog to be happy, pick a dog house that is big enough for your dog to stand up and turn around in, but not much bigger than that because your dogs body heat helps warm up the dog house in the winter. For small dogs and dogs from warmer climates, look for insulated or doublewalled dog houses. Insulated dog houses stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer, just like human houses. If you get a lot of wind, you may want to add a door, which are available for most dog houses.
