Dawn Salinas. Dog Houses. February 18th , 2018.
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.
In Egypt, they lived in mudbrick kennels where they were trained. Dogs were also known throughout ancient Greece, China and Rome. Smaller dogs were often kept in the home but nobility and those with the means or necessity kept their dogs in their own houses outside the home. There are a few factors to consider when selecting a dog house to purchase such as the size of the dog, the size of the backyard and the material and design of the house. Bigger doesnt always mean better: the dog should be able to enter and exit the house and lay down in it comfortably.
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.
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 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.
