Wood Dog House
One of the great things about having a wood dog
Of course this is not to say that it is not a good idea to have your dog insulated especially if you plan to keep your dog outside and if you live in an area with extreme temperatures. Having an Air Conditioner/Heater climate control system connected to your wood dog is also highly recommended and I suggest that anyone living in wintry regions have one installed before the winter really sets in. I keep my wood dog outside but not directly on the ground. I have it elevated about 4 inches off of the ground on legs. This way the floor of my dog is less affected by the rain and humidity, that is so prevalent here where I live. I also have a deck – porch with a little roof attached to the front of my dog's so that he has an area to sit and relax, out of the heat of the sun. Although there are many different types of wood dog houses available on the market and each boasts of its only unique qualities I personally have always preferred cedar wood to any other wood. It looks good, smells good and lasts. There are a number of very reputable internet sites that offer great cedar wood dog houses for reasonable prices and with the winter fast approaching I assume that more people will be looking to give their pet an edge as the cold weather takes hold.
One great thing about wood dog houses is that you can always bring them inside your if the weather gets too extreme outside.
