Elvira Donovan. Dog Houses. February 13th , 2018.
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.
Some are hooked up to electricity and feature lighting, furniture, heating and air conditioning. Some may take things a bit far, installing chandeliers, multiple floors, moulding and tinted window treatments. Those with the finances and the space can have as lavish a home for their dog as they desire. If pooch doesnt seem to be crazy about his new house even if its luxury there are a few ways to remedy this problem. Its important not to make the new abode seem like a place of punishment. Being in the house should be a positive experience.
They vary in prices as well as in makes. Choosing the best one might seem hard, but anyone who knows what he wants can get what he wants. Generally, this type of houses adjust accordingly to how the external environment is. If the outdoors is too hot, they keep the interiors of the house cool. If the outdoors is too cold, they make the interiors of the home warm enough for the resident canine. Although it is possible of having air heating and air conditioning devices in the dog house, these are going to cost quite a lot in terms of electrical use.
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.
Wooden dog structures, with proper care, are very durable and can last many years. You may not find the same variety of shapes in the wooden varieties that you find with plastic houses, but that doesnt mean you are limited to the classic, snoopy style dog house. You will find some attractive and innovative designs in this category. For instance, there are Mansion dog houses that come complete with patios and lattice fencing. Log dog homes have their own front porch. Two story dog dwellings come with a rooftop patio for the pooch who likes to be able to see whats going on around them and relax in the sun.
