Most people think of outdoor dog houses when they thing of a dog house. However, there are also indoor dog houses. Which are perfect if you want to keep your dog safe while indoors. These dog houses are a great way to control your dogs movement. If you are training your dog you may also want to consider an indoor dog house. Many people dont like the fact that their dog has to sleep outside at night and therefore choose the dog house option.
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.
In areas that receive significant snowfall, the roof slope is another factor for consideration. How much time your dog spends outside will have a big influence on the type of dog house needed and where it is situated in your yard. If a dog is in his house a good deal, then it is nice to select one with a roof extending over the entrance so that he can be sheltered from sun and rain while looking out. Maybe even a little deck would be enjoyed. Raised houses are also a good choice for keeping mildew at bay, as well as preventing water or dampness from seeping into the floor.
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.
Indoor dog houses come in various options such as soft indoor dog houses, dog pen indoor dog houses and table indoor dog houses. The soft indoor houses are like over size gym bags with padding and mesh siding. Therefore your pup can see exactly what is going on and receives top quality ventilation. They are also super comfortable given the extra padding. These can also double as pet carriers. If you are going on vacation you may want your dog to use this indoor housing to prepare him for the trip.
