Searching For Dream Dog Houses?

Dog Houses come in several styles and configurations.

Many things have to be considered before purchasing an abode for your pup and incorporating it into your home.

You can purchase one on the Internet, in a pet store or in a larger discount store.

No matter where they come from we have some tips for you to consider.


  • Consider WHERE you are going to place your dog's home. Some are made for indoors and outdoors.
  • They come made out of plastic, wood, and as wire crates.
  • Make sure you measure your dog according to manufacturer’s guidelines and that you purchase the appropriate size for your dog.
  • When purchasing an outdoor home, you must consider the environment and climate where you live. You never want your dog to get too hot or too cold. Many companies even sell climate control units for dog houses.
  • If you are a handy person, consider building your own. There are plans to follow available on the Internet. Local home improvement stores have plans to purchase as well. Check with your hardware store to see if they can help you out as well.
  • If you plan on buying a dog house for indoors, you can buy an open type (some even have little bunk beds attached!) or you can buy a wire or plastic crate.
  • Your dog will be using his house to sleep in. Consider placing comfy bedding in it so he/she will have sweet dreams. Bedding can be anything from a blanket to custom mattresses.

Of course, there are as many choices of dog houses as there are types of dogs. You can have anything from very simple to very extravagant. There are cute features like pitched roofs, flower boxes, shingles and more available.

Have fun and remember to buy the appropriate house for your pooch’s size and your climate.
