Evangelina Howell. Dog Houses. February 08th , 2018.
If you are choosing a dog house for an older dog that you are adopting or a new house for a senior dog you already have, then age does have a bearing. Youll want to take a closer look at the comfort and warmth the house can provide. In this case insulated houses are better shelters and can be fitted out with substantial dog pads for comfort. When it comes to appearance, how much fur does your dog have? On cold winter days, a large and heavily coated breed will not need the same kind of shelter as a small or sparsely coated dog.
When looking for an indoor dog house you will have many features to consider. Such features include a flexible doggy door, a latch hook to keep your dog from leaving the house, ventilation options, comfort padding options, quick clean options in case of accidents, housing style whether it be wicker, wire, good or mesh, and a pet guarantee. You want your pup to feel protected and safe in these indoor housing facilities. Whether you use these houses as traveling pet carriers, outdoor houses or indoor dog houses, your pup should feel relaxed and comfortable.
These are often used for hunting dogs and some can be placed in the back of a pickup truck. Barrel shaped dog homes are made using old wine barrels. This is a nice ecofriendly option, but is also said to resemble the type of den a dog would naturally live in if he were in the wild. Unique dog houses who needs them? Well your dog, for one, because your dog is unique and the choice of dog house will be easier if steps are taken to review a few basic things relating to his needs.
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.
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.
