Building a Dog House for Your Russian Spaniel: Size

1. You should begin your dog house building process by making sure the house is big enough to fit your Russian Spaniel’s potential adult size. We enjoy having approximately two feet of air overhead in a room to live without feeling boxed in. The Russian Spaniel will probably also enjoy having that much room. The target zone for both humans and Russian Spaniels is approximately thrity-three percent of their standing height. To calculate how much room the Russian Spaniel will need get out a tape measure and measure your Russian Spaniel. Measure him standing straight up, resting on his haunches and especially measure the full dimension of the Russian Spaniel when he is in the most stretched out, comfortable, and relaxed position he can get into. Your Russian Spaniel should be able to peer out the front entrance when both sitting and standing. So the Russian Spaniel won’t have to significantly lower his front shoulders or drag his stomach, make sure that entrance is high enough. Stand above the Russian Spaniel and measure the breadth of the broadest point of the animal’s shoulders.

2. Remember to raise the dog house several inches from the ground to permit air and water to flow underneath. To discourage bugs from entering the house, and taking your Russian Spaniel’s health into consideration, remember how vital air circulation is. Put in a few nickel-sized openings in the panels under the eaves. Install a wind block inside the dog house so the Russian Spaniel can use the heat of its body to warm up the space if it is extremely cold or windy outside. Think about adding a partial wall which will help your Russian Spaniel to escape the nasty weather. Your Russian Spaniel 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 appreciate having a pillow or some sort of bedding to snooze on.
