Dog House Repair Month


July is Dog House Repair month. If you dog needs a new home there are many different plans on the internet that can help you make them the perfect dog house. My dogs have houses and other than cleaning they are in great shape. I take this time to make a fe changes that are needed. While, it is hot outside in the middle of summer and winter may be the furthest thing from your mind it is the perfect time to make changes so this winter your dog will be better off.


That's right so lets get started:

Remember last winter and the cold wind that blew?? What direction did it blow from?? You will want to face the opening of the dog house away from the direction of the win. By the way your doghouse should be in a well shaded area during the summer months.

Make a door flap on the dog house so when your dog goes in and out their home stays warm and comfortable. It can be easily done using a piece of carpet, heavy fabric or linelium Simply hang over the opening of the door where your pet will be able to get in and out. You may not want to do this til it gets cooler as it may make dogs house to hot in summer

Put the dog house up on a palate or something so that the chill will not get them to cold.

Purchase some cedar shavings or straw to place in and around your dog house

In all weather types make sure your pet stays fed and watered. Both winter and summer weather have the possibility of dehydrating your dog
