Dog Houses. Tuesday , February 13th , 2018 - 17:26:00 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.
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.
Every dog should have a dog house if they are outside without human supervision. Little dogs especially can get cold very quickly in inclement weather. At the same time, some dogs wont ever use a dog house, so dont feel too bad if your dog chooses to sit on his house in the rain. At least he has a dog house to use however he wants. Dog houses are now not just a matter of shelter for dogs. Today, equal importance, if not more, is given to beautifully designed dog houses which add an extra charm and beauty to the landscape of the owners house.
