Project Dog House: How Complex

How complex or detailed of a dog house do you want to build and how much of you time and money do you want to invest?

Before starting this project you will need to determine the size of the doghouse based on the dog's full-grown size. Your dog should have plenty of room to freely turn around and lie down while still allowing room for their food and water bowls.

You will then need to determine the features that your dog house will maintain. You will need to take into consideration the weather conditions in your area and the location of the kennel placement.

Keep in mind that when building a dog house, you will want the floor of the house to be elevated at least 4" above the ground and the house must have adequate ventilation. Also note that if you decide to use pressure-treated wood, be aware that it's treated with chemicals which are toxic to animals. Be sure to use untreated wood for floors, walls or other surfaces that your dog may come in contact with.

You can design the house yourself or you can choose from many different plans available at your hardware superstores or on the web. There are several types of plans available on the market to review, from the very basic structure to the most elaborate creations.
