Hey guys, me and some friends are planning on building a dog house for Bully this weekend.

I would like to get some ideas and/or pictures from you guys.
Bully is a inside dog, but i would like to be able to tie him up in the yard on nice sunny days



I have:
ALOT of 2x4
Some plywood
Shingles for the roof
Carpet for the inside/insulation
Paint

Thinking of making it pretty big 4'x6'

One problem i have is that where i live, there is ALOT of moskitos! And bully gets reaction from them, so i would like to ad some kind or door/screen so he can go inside without beeing attacked by them.

Also i might ad a small window in there so its not 2 dark.

I aslo wanted to make some kind of water dispencer.. Need ideas for this.

I need it to be a bit higher then the ground, so i need ideas for that 2.

Any ideas is good! I have a big blank on how i want to build this.

Thanks.

If it is cold there you may not want it big, smaller is easier to keep warm in. and for the door you can use something like mud flaps on a truck or some sort of heavy duty plastic that you can cut into strips so they can get in easier. Also with the window , more likely to let drafts and let chills in or heat during the summer months. If its just a day house and the dogs are inside dogs you could go with pretty and extravagant but if its an outside dog you may want to go with warmer and weather friendly .

I made three dog houses, one for each dog lol.


DO NOT PUT INSULATION BOARD INSIDE LIKE I DID. Unless you want to wake up to a snowing back yard

You can order something like this for the door for like 20 bucks. And it's exactly what your talking about as far as a screen door goes.

I so totally understand the Barrels and Dogloo. I have tried it all from wood to metal and nothing works better then a plastic barrel or a dogloo. I prefer the dogloo's and you can find used ones in good condition for like 25 to 30 bucks a little bleaching and their good to go. the Dogloo's are the only type of houses my dogs haven't chewed up.

The others are nice BTW I have only one wood dog house that has lasted over 5 years and that is the one my husband and father made from my pony's old barn they tore down. It some of that good lumber you just cant hardly find anymore. The barn itself was almost 15 years old and not a rotten place in it.

We lost our rabbit the last week of June to the heat well since I have a bad escape artist his pen became Dreamers pen once she was able to go back outside LMFAO. She so small that it was actually perfect for her check her out haha.



The bottom there was supposed to be her pee and poop area but didn't have anything to put another door down there so its just fenced in for now. LOL So this is one of our dogs houses basically
