Liza Cobb. Dog Houses. February 13th , 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.
Hence, new attractive designs emerge regularly, reflecting our evolving choices. T.J Designs, Ash Custom Wood, All Dog Houses, Pet Street Mall, La Petite Maison, Lilliput Play Homes, Petsmart, Petmate, Post Modern Pets, Improvements, Solid Cedar Dog Houses, and Orvis are some companies which provide amazing variety of designs among dog houses. Dog houses are available in different materialwood, plastic, fenced wires, and much more. The design of the dog house differs accordingly too, keeping in tune with the material used in building the dog house.
Having an insulated house for dogs with higher Rvalues is an overall better choice. To start off, one has to decide on the make of the house. The best one would be wood especially that of cedar wood, which is what most high quality dog houses are made of. Wood is a natural insulator. It can do a lot of magic when simply added with a layer of Styrofoam or any other insulators. Dog igloos and plastic dog houses, on the other hand, have its advantage in terms of being highly resistant to water and insects.
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.
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.
