Finding the Perfect House for Your Dog

3

In an ideal world, you’d love to keep your beloved dog indoors. However, sometimes that’s just not possible. Maybe your favorite pet has outgrown living indoors, or you have a senior relative or new baby you’re worried about being around your dog. Whatever the case, you simply can’t throw your dog out of the house without finding him shelter.

If your dog has to stay outdoors mostly, it’s important to build him a house so he can live comfortably and safely. In fact, even if you allow him in the house, it’s still a great idea to build a house where he can spend longs periods outdoors during the day. Therefore, the house will provide warmth on chilly days and shade on hot sunny days. You can find cheap cat trees here.

Choosing an ideal dog house

The most important factor to take into account when selecting a house is your dog’s size. It should have enough room for your pet to turn around or stretch. Don’t purchase one that’s too spacious. A big empty space won’t be comfortable for your dog. Consider the areas in your home where your dog loves sleeping and try and match the size of that space. And make sure that the space is comfortable enough.

The next important factor to consider is climate. If your neighborhood is very hot, buy a kennel that’s well ventilated. You can also find raised dog houses that allow an even better flow of air around the dog’s house. Or, if the heat’s unbearable, you can even buy a house with air conditioning. In case you go for this option, make sure the door of the house seals well to keep electricity costs in check. If you’re more worried about snow rather than heat waves, go for a house that’s well-insulated and waterproof. As an extra for your dog, you can buy a heated bed.

Mobile dog houses

If you only require a temporary dog shelter, you should consider buying a portable house. Portable dog houses look like small tents, are collapsible and, of course, easy and light to move. While not made to withstand winter storms, they’re normally made with highly breathable materials and may provide a comfortable and convenient home for your dog when you’re traveling. However, if you intend to use a mobile dog house while traveling, try and get your pet used to it before you use it somewhere else where your dog might not feel comfortable.
