Socorro Dawson. Dog Houses. February 17th , 2018.
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.
These structures resemble a dog crate or a dog tent. If you have a young dog or a chewer or digger, the plastic dog crate house may stand up better than the fabric varieties. A fabric or foldable dog tent or dog dwelling works well for the more mature dog. These portable structures are very lightweight and can be used to protect your dog in temporary outdoor situations, during vacations, camping trips, etc. There are some other lesser known types of outdoor dog houses, such as metal dog houses and dog boxes which are more of a specialty item.
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.
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.
They are also not so inviting to bugs looking for a home, plus can be moved around without leaving an imprint.This step refers to how messy your dog is while outside. Is he one that frequently likes to relandscape your yard, or dig for buried treasure in the mud and then drag his messy self back into his house for a nap? In other words, is he a dirty dog? If this is your kind of dog, then ease of cleanup may be one of your top priorities to consider. And youll be happy to know that there are dog houses with removable roofs to make cleanup so much easier.
