Homemade Dog House Building Guide


So, you've made the decision to try your hand at dog house building, but you're a bit unsure about the right way to go from here, right? Don't worry, it's a lot easier to build a great dog house than what you think! This article is a general guide to building a dog house.

Choose The Right Size

First things first, you need to decide on the size and design of your homemade dog house. You may think you already know how big it needs to be, but many people don't realise all the great options available.

There are 3 main designs:

- A medium dog house for small and mid-sized dogs, such as Dachshunds and Bull Terriers.

- A large, premium dog house for big dogs like German Shepherds and Golden Retrievers.

- A duplex dog house, so 2 or more of the little guys can sleep snuggled up together!

Even if you currently only have one small dog, consider building a kennel that is bigger than you require. You never know when you might get another dog!
