The New Era of The Dog Kennel Plans

Not all dogs are inside dogs. Some dog owners choose to let their pets live outside. Your dog kennel should provide safe and weather proofed, spacious living area in other case your dog can get sick or even miserable. In this article I will briefly talk about the best ways to build an outdoor kennel without ruining your budget and of course to provided a great shelter for your dog. Let’s start right away because I have a lot to talk to you…

Tip 1: Semi-Homemade Dog Kennel. If you want you can to build a dog kennel then you can build it onto a smaller pre-made outdoor dog kennel. Think of it like an addition to your dog’s house. You can begin your work with starting out with a smaller kennel then adding on by building to the kennel and this can actually save you a lot of money in the long run.

Tip 2: Use Alternate Materials. As far as I know you don’t have to use chain link or steel to build an outdoor dog kennel. Wood, PVC and chicken wire there are materials you can use to build a dog kennel. Do some research and look around for different designs ythat you can chose for your own dog kennel. Specific list of materials can be found in dog kennel plans.

Tip #3: Create a plan for space of a dog kennel. It is essential for a good outdoor dog kennel set up to let your dog move freely and get some exercise during the night. Think carefully about how much space your dog will need and how much room you can make for a dog kennel so you will effectively cover that space. Probably the best set up for the dog can be 20-30 feet of running room and are 10-20 feet in width.

Tip 4: Use Nylon Panels to Create Walls. If you decide to use chain link fencing to build your kennel getting some nylon panels for walls and a roof is an affordable weather proofing solution. Nylon panels can be washed, they are breathable, and they provide protection from the sun and block the wind better than an open chain link design.

Tip 5: Designing a Cost Effective Roof. Soon you will realize that there are many different designs of the dog kennels that you can use to build ideal kennel for your dog.

Three proven roof solutions that are both effective and affordable are:

a) Plywood

b) Tarp

c) Canvas

Dog House

We always had a dog when I was growing up, but my stepfather insisted that they were outdoor dogs, and that they would sleep in a dog house each night. I never really liked that, but that was the way things were, and I was in no position to change his mind. I always felt bad for the dogs, and would sit outside with them for hours to be sure they had some company. Sometimes, I would be the only person paying attention to them for weeks on end.

There is nothing wrong with a good dog house, or an outdoor cat house either. That’s for certain. However, a dog should never be chained outdoors with no interaction from their owners. It’s not a good life for them, and they long for the company of humans and even other dogs. Instead, the dog house should be somewhere they can go for part of the day, but they should be a part of the family for the rest of the time. Many have a house their pet can use while in a fenced in yard, but they are not forced to remain there all of the time.

When considering a dog house, make sure you are getting on that is large enough for the dog to turn around in with room to spare. They should be used for outdoor naps, and even some time in the shade on a hot day. If you get an adequate dog house, they will love to be in there when not in your company. If you live in colder climates, and your dog will spend time outside in the house, make sure it is warm. Dogs have fur, but they also get cold. Some even line the house with fresh hay when a dog must be outside so they have some sort of softness to lie on, and some insulation as well.

When you look at a dog house for your dog, you have a few considerations. Some like to have the classic wood house, but there are newer ones that are made from plastic. If you can find one that has a built in water source, that is probably a good idea to buy. A plastic dog house will have some durability beyond the wood type, but some want to go with the traditional. Whatever you choose, just make sure your dog is comfortable and happy. Everything else is optional.
