We enjoy having around two feet of air overhead in a room to live without feeling claustrophobic. Your Komondor will probably also appreciate having that much room. The target zone for both people and Komondors is about thrity-three percent of their standing height. To calculate how much room the Komondor will need get a tape measure and measure your Komondor. Measure him standing straight up, resting on his haunches and above all measure the full dimension of the Komondor when he is in the most stretched out, comfortable, and relaxed position he can get into. Your Komondor should be able to gaze out the front door while both sitting and standing. So the Komondor will not have to significantly lower his front shoulders or scrape his tummy, make sure that door is tall enough. Stand above the Komondor and measure the width of the broadest point of the Komondor’s shoulders.
Building Your Komondor 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 entering the dog house, and taking your Komondor’s health into consideration, remember how vital fresh air is. Put in a few nickel-sized openings in the walls under the eaves. Install a wind block inside the house so the Komondor can use the heat of its own body to warm up the area if it is very cold or windy outside. Consider adding a partial panel which will permit your Komondor to escape the unpleasant weather. Your Komondor can choose to just sleep in the entry room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner sanctum. Your beloved pet would probably appreciate having a pillow or some sort of bedding to sleep on.

3. To prevent rain entering the dog house make the floor just a bit slanted in the direction of the entrance and build the roof a little bit tilted, as well. Ensure 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 dog house faces a different direction. Most house blueprints recommend that the house entrance faces east. The cold air will not be able to rush through the doorway then.
