Dog Houses. Tuesday , February 13th , 2018 - 16:37:02 PM
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.
Put some of his favorite toys or blankets in his house, or give him some treats in his house. It should also be as close to home as possible. Make sure that the house isnt too large or small for the dogs size, as well. If the dog still isnt crazy about his new house, just give him time. He might just need to adjust to it, especially if he is used to being indoors. We all want the best for our canine buddies. They are family for some of us, so we strive to provide for all of their needs and keep them happy, safe and healthy.
Houses that are too big can make the interior temperature too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. There are many types of dog houses. Many immediately think of the typical house with a peaked roof and arched doorway, but there is a large variety available. The typical house has a pitched roof and is the most popular style. There are also single panel flat roofs and loft roofs, which feature a sun deck on the roof. Doors on these houses are useful for temperature control.
