At the Dog Bowl we specialize in luxury dog houses for sophisticated dog owners. Our distinctive selection of unique dog houses will be an ambient addition to the decorum of your home both inside and out. Whether you need a dog house for a new pet or want to give your old friend a new home, there are a few things to bear in mind before purchasing designer dog houses.
When it comes to the dimensions and design of dog houses or dog crates, it’s imperative to consider the size, shape, and potential growth of your pet. Whether you have an indoor dog house or an outdoor dog house, they need to be big enough for the dog to comfortably move around in. The dog house must be tall enough for the dog to stand up in and turn around in without bumping their head. If you have a puppy, it’s very important to remember these key points and estimate their potential growth and adult size if you plan on keeping your dog house for a long time.
It’s also important to bear in mind your dog’s psychology. Dogs are pack animals. Therefore, by their very nature they have a desire to be close to their owners and other family members. This is a factor when choosing placement of a dog house. If your dog house is outside, don’t place it far away from the house or from the door. It would be best to place the dog house where your pet has a wide breadth of vision, where they can see the door as well as most of the yard. If your dog house is inside, place it in the room where you or the family spend most of your time together, such as the living room or den. Your initial feeling may be to place it in the bedroom, but it will behoove you and your pet to place a dog bed in the bedroom instead. A dog house will offer a quiet retreat where your pet can find some privacy when you’re entertaining guests or when your dog simply needs to find some solace from all the activity in the house. Though we carry a wide selection of designer pet beds to choose from, they serve very different purposes than dog houses. A dog bed leaves your pet in the open, where they can still be disturbed by noise, light, and visitors. Dog houses prevent such disturbances.
Though dogs are social animals, they still need their own space. Dog houses provide this. They offer warmth, refuge, and a sense of security for your pet. Along with giving your pets a place to call their own, they will also aid in keeping the house clean as your dog will do most of its shedding in the dog house instead of your house.
