NOTE: WE AT TRAINED DOGS ROCK, DO NOT ADVOCATE KEEPING DOGS OUTDOORS, BUT WE ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT AT TIMES THERE IS NO OTHER OPTION,
Doghouses come in a wide array of shapes and sizes. The availability isn’t really an issue either, since you can purchase any kind of doghouse easily online, or using big discount stores and your local pet shop. There are, however, quite a number of variables which must be thought out before getting a doghouse and setting it up in your own backyard.
The very first thing you’ll have to think about is space. Both outdoor and indoor kinds are easily accessible, but it is your space available in and around the house that will ultimately decide where the doghouse will be placed. Then you have to think of the material. Pre-constructed doghouses are generally made of wood, plastic and steel parts. You essentially need to fit the material of the doghouse to the region of the house where it will be placed, so that it blends in easily with its surroundings. For example, plastic doghouses are generally ideal for indoor areas, while wooden ones may be more ideal in the outdoors. The decorations of the doghouse could also change in regards to the region where you’ll be putting the doghouse. Adorable brilliant designs are the new trend these days, while tower-like roof designs look awesome from the outside.
Make The Right Measurements
Make sure that you get the right size for your dog and that you’ve fully measured your dog based on the guidelines of the manufacturer. Producers of doghouses set certain percentages and defined ratios between the size of a doghouse and the size of the dog, which will be placed in them. That’s why it is essential that you don’t only make rough approximations but precise measurements. The doghouse will in turn supply optimal gratification for you as well as your dog.
You should also consider the distinct environment of where the doghouse will be placed, especially if it will be outdoors. Many businesses now sell climate management units specifically designed for doghouses. All of these are wonderful improvements in technology that may sometimes cost you a small fortune, but are extremely helpful in ensuring that your dog never gets too hot in the winter or too cold during the warm summer months. Some owners prefer to opt for the “opened variety”, which have a kind of bunk bed attached. This is an ideal scenario for those that want to keep the doghouse indoors. You can also get a wire crate or plastic crate if you want your pet to sleep next to you at bedtime, so that you can spend the night together!
Some owners sometimes consider making their very own doghouse for their pet. Ready-made strategies can be found all over the web. With this specific technique you can unleash the power of your very own imagination and give your pet an ample amount of TLC, while ensuring that he stays warm throughout the night. Remember to add in some comfortable bedding, so that he can enjoy sweet dreams!
Dog houses come in many kinds these days, from highly luxurious to basic and the imagination is the limit as to the color and materials you can use to tailor it according to your specifications.
