Over 50% of the population permit their Bologneses to stay indoors and sleep on the couch or in their owner’s bed. For those of you all who are wondering how to build a dog house for your Bolognese, following are some simple rules to follow when figuring out the type of house you want to provide for your Bolognese.
How to Build Your Bolognese a Dog House: Size
1. You should begin your dog house building process by ensuring the house is large enough to fit your Bolognese’s potential mature size. As humans, we enjoy having about two feet of air overhead in a room to live without feeling claustrophobic. The Bolognese will probably also enjoy having that much space. The comfort zone for both humans and Bologneses is approximately a third of their standing height. To figure out how much room the Bolognese will need get a ruler and measure your Bolognese. Measure him standing straight up, sitting on his haunches and most importantly measure the full dimension of the Bolognese when he is in the most comfortable, relaxed and stretched out position he can get into. Your Bolognese should be able to see out the front entrance when both standing up and sitting. So the Bolognese will not have to significantly lower his front shoulders or drag his tummy, make sure that entrance is tall enough. Stand above the Bolognese and measure the width of the broadest point of the animal’s shoulders.
How to Build Your Bolognese a House: Elevation
2. Remember to elevate the dog house several inches from the ground to permit water and air to flow below. To dissuade pests from invading the house, and taking your Bolognese’s health into consideration, remember how important air circulation is. Install a few nickel-sized holes in the walls underneath the eaves. Put a wind block inside the house so the Bolognese can use the warmth of its own body to warm the space if it is really cold or breezy outside. Think about adding a partial panel which will permit your Bolognese to escape the nasty weather. Your Bolognese can choose to just snooze in the front room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner sanctum. Your beloved Bolognese would probably appreciate having a cushion or some sort of bedding to sleep on.
How to Build a Dog House for Your Bolognese: Weather Resistant
3. To avoid rain entering the dog house make the floor just a bit tilted toward the entryway and construct the roof a little bit tilted, as well. Make sure the house is well insulated but you shouldn’t paint the inside.
4. In America most storms come from the south and west so ensure the house faces a different direction. Most house plans suggest that the house entryway faces east. The cold air won’t be able to rush through the door then.
Add Hinges to the Roof of Your Bolognese’s House
5. It’s suggested that you put hinges on the roof when you build your Bolognese a house. This makes it simpler for you to clean your Bolognese’s home. You should clean out the Bolognese’s house as often as you give your Bolognese a bath.
