Build a House for Your BullenbeisserMore than 50% of owners permit their Bullenbeissers to live inside and sleep on their couch or in their owner’s bed. For those of you who are wondering how to build a dog house for your Bullenbeisser, below are our easy rules to follow when figuring out the type of shelter you want to provide for your Bullenbeisser.

Building Your Bullenbeisser a House: Size

1. You should begin your house building process by ensuring the house is big enough to fit your Bullenbeisser’s potential mature size. People enjoy having about two feet of air overhead in a room to live without feeling claustrophobic. Your Bullenbeisser will also appreciate having that much room. The comfort zone for both people and Bullenbeissers is around a third of their standing height. To calculate how much space the Bullenbeisser will need go get a tape measure and measure your Bullenbeisser. Measure him standing straight up, sitting on his haunches and especially measure the full dimension of the Bullenbeisser when he is in the most relaxed, comfortable, and stretched out position he can get into. Your Bullenbeisser should be able to look out the front entrance when both standing up and sitting. So the Bullenbeisser won’t have to significantly lower his front shoulders or scrape his belly, make sure that door is tall enough. Stand above the Bullenbeisser and measure the breadth of the broadest point of the animal’s shoulders.

2. Don’t forget to raise the house several inches from the ground to allow air and water to flow underneath. To discourage bugs from entering the dog house, and taking your Bullenbeisser’s health into consideration, remember how important air circulation is. Put in a few nickel-sized openings in the walls below the eaves. Put a wind block inside the house so the Bullenbeisser can use the heat of its own body to warm up the area if it is really cold or windy outside. Think about adding a partial wall which will help your Bullenbeisser to escape the inclement weather. Your Bullenbeisser can choose to just sleep in the front room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner room. Your beloved Bullenbeisser would probably love having a cushion or some sort of pallet to sleep on.

3. To avoid rain entering the house make the floor just a little bit tilted toward the entrance and build the roof a little bit on an angle, as well. Make sure the house is well insulated but you shouldn’t paint the interior.

4. In America most storms come from the west and south so make sure the house faces a different direction. Most dog house plans suggest that the house entryway faces east. The cold air won’t be able to whip through the entrance then.
