Greater than 50% of owners allows their Kintamanis to stay indoors and sleep on the couch or in the owner’s bed. For those of y’all who are wanting to know how to build a dog house for your Kintamani, here are some easy rules to follow when determining the type of shelter you want to build for your Kintamani.
Building a House for Your Kintamani: Size
1. You should start your house building process by ensuring the house is large enough to accommodate your Kintamani’s potential mature size. Humans enjoy having about 2 feet of air above us in a room to live without feeling claustrophobic. Your Kintamani will probably also appreciate having that much space. The target zone for both people and Kintamanis is around thrity-three percent of their standing height. To figure out how much space the Kintamani will need go get a tape measure and measure your Kintamani. Measure him standing straight up, sitting on his haunches and above all measure the full dimension of the Kintamani when he is in the most stretched out, comfortable, and relaxed position he can get into. Your Kintamani should be able to see out the front door when both sitting and standing. So the Kintamani will not have to significantly lower his front shoulders or drag his stomach, make sure that door is tall enough. Stand over the Kintamani and measure the breadth of the widest point of the Kintamani’s shoulders.

2. Don’t forget to raise the dog house several inches from the ground to allow water and air to flow below. To discourage pests from invading the dog house, and taking your Kintamani’s health into consideration, remember how important fresh air is. Install a few nickel-sized holes in the panels underneath the eaves. Put a wind block inside the dog house so the Kintamani can use the heat of its own body to heat the area if it is really cold or windy outside. Consider adding a partial panel which will permit your Kintamani to escape the bad weather. Your Kintamani can choose to just snooze in the front room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner sanctum. Your beloved pet would probably love having a pillow or some sort of bedding to snooze on.
Building Your Kintamani a House: Weather Resistant
3. To prevent rain coming into the dog house make the floor just a little bit tilted toward the entryway and build the roof a bit angled, as well. Ensure the dog house is well insulated but you shouldn’t paint the inside.
4. In America most storms come from the south and west so make sure the house faces a different direction. Most dog house blueprints suggest that the dog house entrance faces east. The cold air won’t be able to rush through the opening then.
