Outdoor Dog Houses

Outdoor dog houses in many styles, from no-nonsense simple to dog houses that look like real houses!

Check out our huge selection of outdoor dog houses. We make a point to include a wide variety of styles and sizes in a full range of prices.

Be sure to take note of the size of the door before purchasing one of our outdoor dog houses. Is it large enough for your dog? The width of the door is particularly important as there is no forgiveness…if it is not wide enough, your dog will never be able to use it. On the other hand, you don't want a door that is too big either. The smaller the door, the less chance of wind or rain getting in.

Tip: Measure your dog's width by opening a door just wide enough for him to walk through, then measure that space. Add 4 inches to that measurement and that is the ideal width for the door on one of our outdoor dog houses. As far as the interior dimensions, please see What size dog house is the right size for your dog?.

If you prefer, see our selection of Outdoor Dog Kennels.

There are several important features to consider when you are shopping for outdoor dog houses: size, construction materials, climate and appropriate accessories. We have a large selection of outdoor dog houses so our customers will be able to find the perfect one with all desired features.

Consider the climate where you live.
If you live in a place that gets really cold in the winter or super hot in the summer, you'll definitely want to consider one of our insulated dog houses. It just makes sense, especially when you consider that insulation makes such a big difference in keeping interior temperatures of dog homes more comfortable. Just like the insulation in your own home does.

The insulated dog house models that we sell have insulation inside the wall panels and inside the rooftop. Different manufacturers use different materials for insulation. The product descriptions for our insulated outdoor dog houses for sale will specify the insulation material. If you want additional protection from extreme cold or hot temperatures check out our outdoor dog house accessories section.

We don't carry an already set up heated dog house, but we do carry accessories to heat and/or cool outdoor dog houses. You can get a dog house heater, a dog house solar fan, or go all out and get an AC unit which is the Climate Control Dog House Air Conditioner (the unit is also a de-humidifier).

What size is best for your dog's outdoor house?
After deciding whether or not you'll need an insulated pet house you'll want to turn your attention to size. We carry outdoor dog houses in all sizes, from small dog house models all the way up to extra large dog house models. We even carry duplex dog houses for two dogs. Duplexes also come in various sizes.

As far as size the most important thing to be absolutely sure of before purchasing one of our outdoor dog houses is whether or not the dimensions of the entrance are large enough for your dog.

Some manufacturers of outdoor dog houses make size recommendations based on a dog's weight or breed. Such recommendations can lead you astray; instead you should compare the actual dimensions of the entrance to the actual size of your dog. Don't go by weight or breed recommendations because they are far too general. In other words, not all big dog houses are ideal for breeds that are generally considered large. You really need to measure.

Once you determine that the dog house door is large enough for your dog to fit through you'll want to consider the interior dimensions - floor space as well as the height from floor to ceiling. Ideally, you'll want enough space inside so your dog can lie down comfortably and stand up to turn around. But you don't want it to be much roomier than that for two good reasons.

First, outdoor dog houses that are an appropriate size will retain a dog's body heat much better than will overly large dog houses. The second reason is because most animals, including dogs, prefer to relax in small, easy to monitor spaces. An easy to monitor space provides a sense of security.

Construction materials
Outdoor dog houses are manufactured in a variety of materials including wood, plastic and eco-friendly post-consumer waste materials. Most of our wood dog house models are made from cedar while others are made from kiln-dried fir wood such as those manufactured by Merry Products. According to Merry Products fir wood has natural qualities that are similar to those of cedar including a resistance to moisture, rot and insects.

All of our cedar dog house models are insulated. However, our most popular insulated dog houses for sale are made with plastic and contain serious insulation. They are the DP Hunter insulated dog house and the Dog Palace Insulated Dog House. True, these models are not as stylish or attractive as our wood models, but they are insulated to the hilt. Read the product descriptions to find out about R-values and type of insulation.

We carry eco-friendly dog houses by New Age Pet that are made with a mix of wood fibers and post-consumer recycled polymers. The material offers both the weather-resistance of polymers plus some qualities found in wooden dog houses. These outdoor dog houses can be painted any color so long as latex paint is used, however they do not have to be painted.

What about style?
Outdoor dog houses come in many styles so you can select one that compliments the style of your home. There are classic styles such as Ware A-frame dog houses. Merry Products produces dog houses that look like quaint countryside outbuildings such as a classic barn or cottage design.

Last but certainly not least we carry a large selection of outdoor cat houses that are made out of natural cedar wood with insulation inside the wall panels and the roof. Surprisingly there is more call for them than there is for outdoor dog houses. It's because most people buy cat houses for feral cats. These people have a soft spot for homeless cats and want to provide adequate shelter from the elements and extreme cold. Our dog house heater can be used to warm cat houses as well.
