Building Your Mcnab a Dog House

Build a House for Your McnabGreater than 50 percent of the population allows their Mcnabs to stay inside and sleep on the sofa or in the bed. For those of you guys who are interested in how to build a dog house for your Mcnab, here are some easy rules to follow when considering what type of shelter you want to provide for your Mcnab.

How to Build a Dog House for Your Mcnab: Size

1. You should begin your house building process by ensuring the house is big enough to fit your Mcnab’s potential adult size. We enjoy having approximately two feet of air above us in a room to live without feeling claustrophobic. Your Mcnab will also appreciate having that much room. The comfort zone for both humans and Mcnabs is about 1/3 of their standing height. To calculate how much space the Mcnab will need get out a ruler and measure your Mcnab. Measure him standing straight up, resting on his haunches and above all measure the full dimension of the Mcnab when he is in the most comfortable, relaxed and stretched out position he can get into. Your Mcnab should be able to see out the front door when both standing up and sitting. So the Mcnab won’t have to significantly lower his front shoulders or scrape his stomach, make sure that entrance is high enough. Stand above the Mcnab and measure the width of the widest point of the animal’s shoulders.

How to Build Your Mcnab a House: Elevation

2. Don’t forget to elevate the house several inches from the ground to permit air and water to flow underneath. To discourage bugs from invading the dog house, and taking your Mcnab’s health into consideration, remember how important air circulation is. Put in a few nickel-sized holes in the panels under the eaves. Install a wind block inside the dog house so the Mcnab can use the warmth of its own body to heat up the space if it is very cold or breezy outside. Consider adding a partial panel which will permit your Mcnab to escape the unpleasant weather. Your animal can decide to just snooze in the entry room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner sanctum. Your beloved Mcnab would probably love having a cushion or some sort of bedding to sleep on.

How to Build Your Mcnab a House: Weather Resistant

3. To avoid rain entering the house make the floor just a little bit slanted toward the door and build the roof a bit angled, as well. Ensure the dog house is well insulated but you shouldn’t paint the interior.

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

Add Hinges to the Roof of Your Mcnab’s Dog House

5. It’s recommended that you place hinges on the roof when you build your Mcnab a house. This makes it simpler for you to empty out your Mcnab’s house. You should clean your Mcnab’s house as much as you give your Mcnab a bath.
