Spring Break Activities; Building a Dog House

Spring Break Activities; Building a Dog House

If you're looking for activities to keep yourself and your family entertained this Spring break, building your loved one a new dog house is a great activity which everybody can partake in.

However, before you start, there are a few important things which you should know, to make your creation as comfortable as possible for your pooch.
1. The first thing which you will need to decide is where you will put the dog house. Once you have located a suitable space, take measurements and draw a diagram of the area you're working with. Don't forget to decide which side the entrance will be on.
2. When you know where it will go, consider a design which makes the most of the space that you have. Keep in mind that this might mean that your dog won't have a traditional rectangle style place. And that's okay! The more space you can give your dog, the better; no matter what shape it comes in.
3. When it comes time to choose the materials to work with, be sure to use only high-quality materials. Remember that your dog house will have to endure the elements 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
This means quality wood, nails, screws, and fixtures.
4. The elevation is key to building a dog house, especially in areas which see a lot of rainfall. Be sure to put your dog house on small feet or stumps and raise it off the ground a couple of inches. This will minimize any water damage that builds up against the house as it flows.
5. Speaking of air, there's nothing worse than the smell of a dog house. And if you don't enjoy the smell, what makes you think that your dog enjoys it any more?
Be sure to include adequate openings which promote the flow of air. It isn't enough to just put a small window; be sure to place an opening on each side so the wind can flow through.
6.At first, you might notice that your dog is hesitant to go inside the new home. Help them out by placing their blanket and toys in there. If that doesn’t work, some treats from the Groupon Coupons page for Petco is sure to do the trick!
Once the dog house is completed, be sure to decorate as creatively and brightly as you and your children like. Remember that your dog can’t see color and doesn’t really have good fashion sense, so design it for yourselves as a reward for your hard work!
