Dogs, just like people, are sensitive to the weather. Even dogs bred and built for rugged outdoor living can succumb to extreme heat and cold. Heat, in particular, can cause all sorts of problems for dogs. Two of the biggest concerns for pet owners who buy doghouses is the fear of heat exhaustion or hypothermia.Dog owners should pay attention to the outdoor temperatures.Good outside coverage is vital for animals that live exposed to the elements.
All too often I see dogs out in the cold or in the baking sun, and their only shelter is a cheap plastic dog house with little ventilation and no insulation. Yes, these shelters do keep your dog out of the elements. They block the wind and keep the rain from beating down on him, but that’s all they do.
These types of dog houses are usually too hot or too cold, depending on the weather. Sometimes they are even made with plastics that contain harmful chemicals which can have a negative effect on your dog’s health if he is exposed to them over time. These types of shelters don’t usually have enough room for a large breed dog either.
Dog owners need to be mindful about the materials that are used in the making of the shelter.Many pet parents don’t realize that formaldehyde is commonly used in the processing of plywood. There are also many well-known toxins used in making certain types of plastics.
First of all, these chemicals are extremely dangerous if your dog is a chewer. If he ingests these poison it could make him very sick. Secondly, think about the size of a dog house. It is a small enclosed space where your dog can go to stay warm and get out of the elements when he is left outside.
Chemicals from the materials of the dog house can diminish the air quality inside the shelter and they can also leach into your dog’s system through his skin.All of the doghouses we will produce will be safe and insulated.
Winter is approaching slowly but surely.Some breeds of dogs can live outside during the winter if they are provided with an insulated doghouse of the proper dimensions. Dimensions are directly related to the size of the dog and are critically important if the dog is to maintain warmth in the doghouse with its own body heat.
With your aid we can provide dog parents with proper insulated doghouses.
For people in our poor communities who love their dogs but can't afford or build a proper doghouse we will donate one out of every ten we build.
They say a dog is mans best friend.
The question is : Is man dogs best friend?
