Dog House – Factory made

Yesterday we discussed about DIY dog house. For you who happen to be familiar with woodworking or doesn’t mind going all the trouble finding a carpenter to make one for you, of course this might be an ideal option.

But for you who choose a more simple, convenient, and cheaper way of providing a dog house for your pooch, you can just buy a factory made dog house.

Factory made dog house comes in a LOT of different shape and size. All you need to do is find a pet store (online or offline) and take your pick. For a small breed dog, of course the option are wider since your pooch will be able to use either a small or big size dog house.

I found this some of theses pretty cool outdoor dog house that might be suitable for your dog or puppy. I’m not against plastic made products and I’m sure some of them comes with an excellent quality. But personally I’m not a big fan of it, so I won’t discuss that here.


This one is Extra Large Dog House Hinged Roof Outdoor Shelter Kennel Indoor Home Animal Red. The design is quite simple and since it has a removable floor and roof, which will make it easier for you to clean. It has reinforced floor that can hold up to a 140 pound dog. It has raised floor and the plastic feet to keep the moisture out. This dog house is made from kiln dried ceder and treated with natural color stain.

Heated Dog House Weather Resistant Wood Large Outdoor Pet Shelter Cage Kennel. Made from fir wood and it comes in many size from small to extra large. The second one is
Heated Wood Dog House Large Shingle Roof Rustic Woodstone Pet Kennel Heater. Its also made from fir wood and personally I think the brick design make it look a little bit more elegant.

heaterIf you already set your eyes on some design, but unfortunately it doesn’t have a heater, you can install Akoma Hound Heater Dog House, which is used by most of dog house that comes with an installed heater. It’s also used by both of the dog house I’ve shown you above. Akoma is not only providing heater for your dog house. They also have a cooling fan for a warmer weather. It’s called Akoma Hound Breezer Deluxe. If you only need one type of temperature controller unit, you might want to go for this items, because cost wise it will be cheaper for you. But if you need both heater and cooler, you might want to consider getting Doghouse Heater Air Conditioner for All Outdoor Pets Climateright CR2500ACH.

This plan from Dog House Pet Kennel Plans will describe a step by step process in detail to make your dog house from scratch. What you get when you buy the plan is on paper instruction, not the real dog house.

How about if you decide to keep your dog indoor? Well obviously you will have more option, not only for the design, but also from materials. Here are a few adorable indoor dog house made from fabrics that I found absolutely adorable.
