Ahead of the month comes to a close, let us consider whether your dog requires a dog house. The simplest necessities for each dog are food, shelter, and water. Needless to say, there are quite a few different supplies that your dog needs to stay healthy and happy such as toys, treats, grooming supplies, a comfortable bed, routine veterinary care and a great deal of attention and love. When determining whether your dog could use a dog home, the principal consideration will be how long your dog goes outside.
It can’t be stressed enough: your puppy needs, first and foremost, to spend some time with you. If your furry pal will be spending the majority of the time indoors with you, then you’d do better to get him a comfy dog crate or bed to sleep in within the home. However, if circumstances require that your dog spends time out in your yard, you need to be certain that he has enough shelter–it is not only the humane thing to do, it is the law.
A comfy dog house will give your pet a safe place to go and should supply:
- Protection from the elements like rain, sleet, snow, and the wind
- Shade from the hot summer sun
- Insulation from the bitter cold
- A den-like place where your dog can feel protected
Conclusion: Do Dogs Like Dog Houses?
Do not forget that it’ll be very tricky for certain dogs (like older dogs, sick dogs, dogs, lean dogs and dogs with short hair coats) to adapt to living outside. Dogs can and do feel the cold and warmth, just like you do. Because dogs are highly social creatures they thrive on companionship, and experience loneliness and boredom if they’re relegated to a solitary life in the backyard, away from the rest of the household they believe their “pack.” Besides depriving the puppy of his bunch, by keeping him out you are passing up the best aspect of owning a dog: his companionship, and all of the love, devotion, and joy that comes with having a dog by your side.
