A dog requires a comfortable space to spend most of its hour in. In days gone by, dog owners had to make do with improvised Dog House or Dog kennels. That is because it was very hard to find ready-made dog cages in the Indian market. Thankfully, that has changed. Nowadays, it is possible to find a professionally designed dog kennel. Whatever the breed or size of your dog, you can find a good kennel for it. Many of these kennels have designs that make them suitable for use by other pets – including cats.

There are different types of dog beds are available for the needs of Dogs and pets.

Features of a Dog House

  • Most of the dog houses in the market come with cushions. The purpose of these is to make the dogs sleeping in the kennels more comfortable.
  • The best dog houses are made using easy-to-clean materials. This makes them easy to take care of.
  • Another important feature in a dog house is size. The best dog cages allow plenty of movement space for the dogs staying inside.
  • Portability is another important feature in a dog kennel. In this regard, the best kennels are foldable and easy to move around with.

Types of Dog Houses

  • There are some dog houses that are raised above ground level. Then there are those whose base rests directly on the ground.
  • Some dog kennels are for indoor use only. But there also some that are capable of both indoors and outdoors use.
  • Some dog kennels have cave-like designs. Others have tent-like designs.
  • We have some dog kennels whose design allows for mobile use (portable dog houses). But there are also those whose design is for stationary use (hard to move around with).

How to use a Dog House?

  • The first step, after buying a new dog house, is obviously to unpack it.
  • After unpacking, the next step is to assemble the dog house. Some of the dog houses come with manuals to help you in this process. But there are also some that come without manuals. For those, you have to use common sense.
  • After assembling the dog house, the next step is to spread the cushion (if one is available). Then you can introduce the dog into the kennel, and see how comfortable he is there.
  • Once the dog house is in use, it is important to remember to be cleaning it regularly. You may also need to be replacing the cushions from time to time.

Buyer’s guide for Dog Kennel

  • The most important thing, while buying a dog kennel, is to ensure that it is of adequate size. You need to know the size of dog you are buying a kennel for. Then ensure that you get a kennel that is big enough for that dog. It should (at least) be a kennel within which the dog can move about.
  • The kennel you buy should be one whose front opening is big enough. The opening should be big enough for the dog to go in and out without struggling.
  • Yet another important consideration is the ease with which you can clean the dog kennel.
  • You can buy the kennel at a local pet products store. The other option is to buy the kennel online. If you opt to buy online, you would have a chance to save time and money.
