Duplex Dog Houses

Duplex dog houses for two dogs are not only practical, they're also good looking!

Our cedar duplex dog houses are popular with people looking for dog houses for two dogs. Cedar is well-known for its ability to stand up to being outdoors and it is a natural flea and insect deterrent. It is also an excellent rooftop material for making dog houses that stay cool (cooler than a shingled roof).

In addition to the practical benefits of using natural cedar, it is also a beautiful wood.

In our opinion, based on years of customer input, the best duplex dog houses are made out of cedar. A cedar dog house has many natural qualities that makes it the best kind of wood to use to construct outdoor dog houses. For starters cedar can stand up to being outside without staining or sealing the wood. Unlike other wooden dog houses, cedar will change color as it weathers over time acquiring an attractive rustic-style, silver-gray patina.

America's Pet Store carries duplex dog houses in small, medium, large and extra large. So if you want a duplex dog house for two large dogs or for two small dogs you'll find the appropriate size here. Naturally if you have two dogs that are not close in size you will have to either buy separate houses – a small dog house and a large dog house – or choose a duplex dog house that is large enough for your largest dog.

We generally do not recommend big dog houses for small dogs, but this would be a special case. It would be a good idea to come up with a way to make one side "smaller" for your smaller dog. Maybe you could line the walls with big pillows to help reduce the size. Just be sure to leave enough room to allow your dog to stand up and turn around when inside.

In addition to being weatherproof, a cedar dog house is also a natural deterrent to fleas and other insects. A cedar roof will also keep these duplex dog houses cooler in the summer than a standard shingled roof. Insulation also helps to keep temperatures down in the summer. All of the cedar homes we carry are insulated dog houses. Of course insulation also helps to keep temperatures warm inside these duplex dog houses in the winter.

Insulation really makes a big difference but if you want more protection from the cold then you can upgrade almost any insulated dog house to a heated dog house. This includes our newest additions to our insulated models by New Age Pet. New Age Pet Eco-Concepts dog houses (duplexes not available) are eco-friendly dog houses made from a combination of wood fiber and post-consumer recycled polymers.

Heating options include the Hound Heater Dog House Furnace. This dog house heater is 10 1/2" Tall x 10" Wide and 4 1/2" deep. So it is too big for our smaller duplex dog houses but it will fit in most of the others. Just be sure to take note of the interior dimensions of a dog house if you plan to install a Hound Heater.

Other options include dog house floor heaters or outdoor heated pet beds. Check out our dog house accessories section to see the various available options.

If you have any questions about our dog house lineup please contact us and we'll be happy to assist you. In addition to duplex dog houses we carry single occupant dog houses in all sizes from small all the way up to extra large dog house for Great Danes, Saint Bernards and other giant dog breeds. If you are looking for big fancy dog houses that look like real houses or quaint countryside outbuildings check out our luxury dog houses section.

We also carry outdoor cat houses in small sizes suitable for one cat or larger outdoor cat enclosures to shelter multiple feral cats. Just like the duplex dog houses we carry, our outdoor cat enclosures are also made from cedar and they are well insulated.

All of our dog houses include free ground shipping within the continental U.S.
