Dog Houses. Thursday , February 08th , 2018 - 15:19:54 PM
For those living in climates that are not extreme either summer or winter, your dog will probably do well in a house appropriate for all seasons. Even when its the rainy season, many dog houses have easy to attach doors that can be removed when not needed. But, for the more extreme climates, insulated houses work the best for retaining warmth in the winter and providing a cooler interior during hot summer days. Additionally, if your dog need more climate control, most doghouses can hooked up with a combination heater/air conditioning unit.
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.
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.
