    What About Building a Dog House For Your Shih Tzu?

     

    There are many things to consider when you are building a dog house. The first and foremost is the comfort of the animal. If the dog house is uncomfortable to the pet, then it could be made of gold, and the animal would not even look at it. It is imperative that the animal feels happy and safe inside its house. For this purpose, one should be extremely careful while building a dog house, because it is easy very easy to get carried away and create a house that is exceptionally beautiful for humans and totally useless for your dogs.

    What You Should Ensure that Your Dog House Should Have

    There are many things that you should take into consideration while building a dog house for your pet. Though the frills will depend from person to person and from dog to dog, the basics will always remain the same.

    1. The dog house should be easy to clean. For this purpose, many people choose to put hinges on the roof while building a dog house; this would ensure that the place will always be cleaned thoroughly, giving the animal a safe and pleasant environment to live in.

    2. Place the dog-house entrance towards the East (this is valid in USA where most of the storms come from the West or South); in this way, the dog will never be faced with direct wind or rain getting in through the entrance. The direction can be changed in the case of other places, depending on the direction of the wind in that region.

    3. A common fallacy people face while building a dog house is to not paint the insides of the dog-house. This is mostly because the dogs cannot stand the strong smell of the paint and when exposed for long period, it impairs their sense of smell temporarily. However, if you paint the house, say some 10-15 days in advance, then the smell and its impact would definitely be over. In fact the dog house will look a thousand times better if the insides are painted as well.

    4. You can ensure that rain does not get inside the dog’s house by slightly slanting the roof and the floor of the house towards the entrance. In this way, even if the rain water gets it, it will not get inside the house and wet the animal sheltered inside.

    The above are some of the highlights that one should keep in mind while building a dog house. The overall package will always depend on the animal and the person who is constructing; however, unless the basics are taken care of, the house would not be inhabitable.
