So you have decided to build your best friend a place, but you are not sure exactly how and to begin; while it is not hard, your work will be a lot smother with a bit of planning.
A Dog House Blue Print
Even for a dog house, it is suggested to create and work on a blue print first, because it will work to your advantage when you will put it together. Here are the advantages of creating a dog house blue print:
* Location will be planned at the best possible place in your courtyard or lawn.
* You will be able to work details out such as ventilation, which is extremely necessary all year round.
* A dog house blue print will also allow you to work all measurements out before you start building, such as the dog house height, door, windows, and other such facilities that you may want to add for your pet.
Due to global warming, which has brought huge heat waves all over the world, many have air conditioning in the dog house as well. Here a dog house blue print will be needed by law as many other issues will need to be addressed, as well, such as fire safety and escape route in case of emergency.

The Value of a Dog House
A dog house is a great idea and investment even if you keep your pet most of the time indoors. In summer time, not just your pet will appreciate the freedom and choice to choose where he/she would like to spend the day or night.
It is also advised to keep him/her out of the house during the shedding period when your pet's hair falls out, because the hair can get to be dangerous for health – especially if you have small children.
Dogs make wonderful pets that are loyal and loving for all their life; they offer unconditional love to their master and friend for a lifetime. It is a very small thing that you would be doing for your friend in turn by building him/her a dog house. You can start planning today by getting a dog house blue print.
