Choosing which type of dog kennel to buy for your new dog can seem like a daunting prospect when you first start your research. There are thousands of kennels on the market in all different styles, shapes and sizes and you need to carefully consider which one would best suit you and your dog.
Start by thinking about whether the kennel will be mainly used indoors, outdoors or for transporting your dog from place to place. This will help you to decide which kennels will definitely not be suitable – a wooden kennel would look a little strange in your lounge! You will also need to take into account the size of your dog as some kennels are only really suitable for small to medium sized dogs.
An igloo dog house is one of the newer styles of dog house available to buy today and here we are going to discuss why your dog would love to live in one.
As the name would suggest, an igloo style dog house is modelled on an Inuit igloo. These houses are specially designed to retain warmth and as a dog home will keep your dog lovely and cosy even in the worst weather conditions. Some even come with doors so that you can shut out all weather. The base of the kennel is raised up from the floor so that cold is not transferred from the ground and into your dog’s bed and there is a fixing on the outside on which you can attach a water bowl so there is never a risk of your dog knocking over his water and going thirsty.
The plastic composition of igloo dog houses makes them hardwearing and resistant to weathering. Also, unlike a lot of plastic dog homes, they come in a huge range of sizes and can be found for all but the very largest breed of dog.
