Dog houses are available in a wide variety of styles and designs. To find the best one for your dog, consider your dog's size and what material and style of dog house you prefer.
To find the right size dog house, start by weighing and measuring your dog. Measure your dog's length from nose to tail with the tail extended, and then measure your dog's height from the shoulder to the ground and from the head to the ground. The dog house you buy should be tall enough to allow your dog to stand on all fours without touching the ceiling and should have enough room for your dog to turn around in. The door can be shoulder height, although ideally your dog should be able to enter without a bowed head.
Plastic, fiberglass and wood are some of the best materials for dog houses, since they don't retain as much heat as metal. Wood has a more traditional look, but plastic and fiberglass are often better at weathering the elements. For travel, look for inflatable or cloth dog houses.
Choosing a style for your dog house is mostly a matter of personal taste. Conventional dog houses look like human houses with pitched roofs, while dogloos and dog caves have a rounded shape.
