Dog House Hacks
• Dimensions and Construction Materials? The specific size of your pet's home really depends on your dog. It should be roomy enough so your pet can stand up, turn around and lay back down comfortably. However, you don’t want to make it too big so your dog doesn’t feel secure enough. You may also want to add insulation for outside dog houses.
• Door, Roof and other Features? Outside dog houses should have a door of some kind so your pet is used to it in all kinds of weather. Some people also like to have removable roofs for easier cleaning of the dog house. In addition, outside dog houses should have straw for bedding to keep dampness away from your pet. Indoor dog houses can have soft bedding that matches your home’s décor.
Now that we’ve got the basics covered, now let’s add some designer touches! Do you have a cool theme for your dog’s house? From castles to modern, Western to sophisticated, having a theme for decoration and style is a great idea. Windows, steps, porches and other unique architectural designs also create interesting details. Most of all, have fun this summer making your dog’s house extra special!
