Best Dog Houses

What Are The Best Dog Houses?

When you are a dog owner and lover, you always want to give them the best of everything – don’t you? I know that I certainly do.

When I was a child, dogs did not have houses – they just had a kennel out in the yard! But in recent years, fancy dog houses have become very popular and are now almost the norm. Most dog owners at the least will have a wire crate for their pooch.

So, in this page I have a look at the places our pooches get to sleep and lounge. Different types of dog houses. Which ones work and which ones are most appreciated by dogs and puppies everywhere.

About Dog Crates

Your Dog’s Home In A Home!

The most basic of the dog house range is of course, the dog crate. However, although they are just a cage, they do not need to look horrible! Nor do they need to be a place of punishment for your dog.

Used in the right way, most dogs love their crates. It is their own place, where they feel safe and happy. And where they can be left at home for lengths of time – while you know they are safe and not getting into trouble – or destroying your home.

You add comfort things, such as a bed and comfy blanket, toys and if the crate is large enough you can add a water a food bowl.

Then a cover placed over it makes it a lot more homely and makes a nervous dog feel safe.

This is the fantastic Petego Umbra Portable Pet House and Containment System. I really like this portable option. This neat set-up is a completely portable house, containment system and tent for dogs – all in one.
It is a very light little shelter and comes with it’s own carry bag. And look – it even has it’s own front porch too!
It is small enough at 35 by 35 by 35 inches, to be used inside your car, fits easily into a SUV and it is made of good quality materials that are claw resistant. There is mest inserts to enable good airflow and no interior smells.
What a great idea for people who travel or for when you are going camping. The dog gets his own tent!

How to Build a Doghouse

If you want to make a great one yourself, there are a number of different options to choose from. You could build a little “people house”. But, it does not need to be massive or even overly attractive. it depends on where in your yard it is to live. if it is visible from the main rooms of your house, then obviously you will want something that is visually appealing to the eye.

But as long as it is warm, stays dry and has enough room for your dog to be comfortable in, then almost any enclosure will work well.

This video below shows how to build a really nice dog house from scratch …

Comfy Dog Houses Are Good For …

For When The Man Of The Family is “In The Dog House” Literally!

Having a very comfy home for your dog can sometimes turn out to be a boon for when you have just had a wild argument with your spouse!

Or if he has come home late after having far too much to drink and needs a place to sleep it off, where he will not get a stiletto bashing.

However, your dog may not like having to share with this type of a house guest – it all depends on exactly who has the “dog breath?
