Building a Dog House for Your Kuri: Size
1. You should start your dog house building process by ensuring the house is big enough to fit your Kuri’s potential mature size. As humans, we enjoy having approximately two feet of air above us in a room to live without feeling boxed in. The Kuri will probably also enjoy having that much room. The comfort zone for both people and Kuris is about thrity-three percent of their standing height. To figure out how much space the Kuri will need get a tape measure and measure your Kuri. Measure him standing straight up, resting on his haunches and above all measure the full dimension of the Kuri when he is in the most comfortable, relaxed and stretched out position he can get into. Your Kuri should be able to look out the front door when both sitting and standing. So the Kuri won’t have to significantly lower his front shoulders or drag his belly, make sure that door is tall enough. Stand over the Kuri and measure the width of the broadest point of the animal’s shoulders.
Building a Dog House for Your Kuri: Elevation
2. Remember to elevate the house several inches from the ground to permit air and water to flow below. To discourage bugs from invading the house, and taking your Kuri’s health into consideration, remember how important fresh air is. Put in a few nickel-sized holes in the panels below the eaves. Put a wind block inside the house so the Kuri can use the heat of its own body to heat up the area if it is really cold or breezy outside. Think about adding a partial panel which will permit your Kuri to escape the bad weather. Your animal can decide to just sleep in the entry room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner room. Your beloved Kuri would probably appreciate having a cushion or some sort of bedding to snooze on.

4. In the US most storms come from the south and west so make sure the dog house is facing a different direction. Most house blueprints suggest that the dog house doorway faces east. The cold air won’t be able to rush through the door then.
