Ideal Doghouse: Step-by-step, how-to video
In this video, we’re giving you a step-by-step guide on how to build an Ideal Doghouse.
Some breeds of dogs can live outside during the winter, if they are provided with an insulated doghouse of the proper dimensions. The dimensions are directly related to the size of the dog. Dimensions are critically important if the dog is to maintain warmth in the doghouse with its own body heat.
Find the proper dimensions and measurements for your pet on our Ideal Doghouse brochure.
Things to consider before building your Ideal Doghouse:
Before your start building, here are a few things that are important to consider.
- Dogs should be acclimatized to outdoor living when they are young and the weather is warm.
- During severe weather, dogs may have to be brought inside the family home.
- Aged,young, or infirm dogs should not be housed outdoors, especially during cold weather.
- Dogs with short coats are prone to frostbite and can not endure the cold temperatures very easily.
