How to Choose the Best Dog House

 1. Size – The most important factor when choosing a dog house.  Make sure to select a house that comfortably fits your dog.  There's a video instructing how to measure your pet for a dog house below.  Keep in mind if your buying a house for a puppy - he's going to grow!


2. Shape – Some dogs will prefer the round houses, while others prefer the box like house.  You might want to explore a variety of options beforehand.  The dog house needs enough space inside to allow for your dog to turn around & stretch.  


3. Material –   There's three different materials to consider.  Wood is the most common material, but it can succumb to rot and mildew, and will degrade over time. Plastic is stronger, but can still become damaged over time. Metal is sturdy, but not as comfy for your pet.

Overview

Sturdy well built dog houses.

 This dog house is one of the cheaper options available on the current market, and despite the low price it is still a product of very good quality.


The large Suncast Outdoor Dog House

is a hard-wearing model that is built from strong resin and it includes a removable roof, vents, crowned floors, and a vinyl door. It is considered by many customers as one of the best dog house models out there as it can readily accommodate dogs that weigh up to 100 pounds.


The Suncast Dog House is leak-proof and it is capable of doing its job to protect your pet from the elements, making it an ideal outdoor lodging option for your dog. In the summer your dog will keep cool.  In the winter and rainy seasons the house is capable of standing up against rain, snow, and colder temperatures.


There are vents added for proper air circulation. This provides comfort and avoids accumulation of bad odors.  The vinyl doors are provided. It even comes with stick-on letters to personalize it with your dogs name.  


Easy snap on connectors for assembly.  Plus, the roof can be removed easily for cleaning.


The dog house does not come with feet, which means that it is not a raised model type.  If it rains or snows or you are experiencing damp weather, the floor of the house will get wet.  The solution to this is keeping something under the dog house to raise it above ground level.  It will also need insulation for the colder winter months.

Overview

Dog house for a large dog best value.

 Petsfit is one of the premier manufacturers of dog houses. Their products are always well built.


This house uses heavy-duty kiln-dried cedar, which easily withstands the harsh outdoor elements. Kiln dried cedar is one of the best woods for a dog house because it’s virtually immune to wood rot. Plus, the exterior is treated with a natural color stain..Petsfit also has a reinforced floor. This gives the dog house the ability to withstand heavier dogs. 


Equipped with a slanted roof & groove design it provides excellent drainage.  Preventing damage to the roof & overall structure.  No worries about the roof springing a leak & dripping on your pet.
The Petsfit raised floor will not mold or rot on the underside.  Water passes underneath, leaving the reinforced floor boards untouched.The feet touching the ground are plastic.  A convenient door flap is included.  It provides cooling during the summer and insulation during the winter.  It also protects your dog from wind gusts and precipitation.


Easy to assemble with pre-drilled holes.


Even though this comes in a variety of sizes, it isn’t the best option for extra large dogs.  It is too small even in the largest size, and the floor supports are too weak to support the weight of a big dog.

Overview

Top selling dog houses in white.

 

The Indingo by Petmate is an igloo-shaped outdoor doghouse designed to keep pets warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and dry all year long.  Unlike other resin-type structures the Indigo dog house is designed for all weather conditions and situations. 


The heavy duty, structural foam dome design keeps snow from piling up on top of the shelter.  The dome and base have   Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection incorporated into the material, which helps prevent the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria.  


Structural foam is an insulated plastic and lightweight. This makes the product extremely durable while being surprisingly lightweight. The base of the interior is designed to move any interior moisture away from your pet and to the outer edges.


The Igloo is vented to maintain airflow for a number of reasons.  It keep the air inside the dome fresh & your pet comfortable by not overheating.  A plus on this product is the dome top ventilation. The vent is tucked under a rain cover, and the gently sloped downward to encourage water movement away from the shelter vent. Also, the adjustable vent can be tipped up or down, for severe wind or rain conditions.


The overall domed design is the most practical design for snowier climates.

There’s no need to be concerned about build-up covering the vent, or causing any structural damage.


Easy assembly, you simply snap together the domed top and flat bottom to complete the Indigo Igloo. No tools needed.
