Dog Houses. Sunday , February 11th , 2018 - 13:15:27 PM
Any dog who spends a good portions of his day outdoors can benefit from a durable, insulated dog house that can withstand the wear and tear of the elements. Here is a quick overview of some of the pros and cons on different styles of dog houses and homes available and some tips for choosing one that works for you and your favorite hound. Wooden dog houses are amongst the most common and the most popular types of outdoor dog houses. Wood will always have that charming, rustic look, but its also one of the best insulators when it comes to pet dwellings.
Just like housing for humans, dog houses range from basic to designer, with the respective price tags attached. Again, like housing for humans, you need to take into account the basic needs of the occupant, your dog. Your dogs size and coat will help you on your search for prime pup real estate. A dog house offers basic shelter from the elements. You definitely should not buy a McMansion for your Yorkie. Your dog doesnt care about impressing the neighbors with his digs, he wants to stay warm.
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.
