Building a House for Your Greenland Dog: Size

1. You should start your house building process by making sure the house is big enough to accommodate your Greenland Dog’s potential adult size. Humans enjoy having about two feet of air above us in a room to live without feeling claustrophobic. The Greenland Dog will also appreciate having that much space. The comfort zone for both humans and Greenland Dogs is about 33% of their standing height. To calculate how much room the Greenland Dog will need go get a ruler and measure your Greenland Dog. Measure him standing straight up, sitting on his haunches and especially measure the full dimension of the Greenland Dog when he is in the most stretched out, comfortable, and relaxed position he can get into. Your Greenland Dog should be able to gaze out the front entrance while both sitting and standing. So the Greenland Dog will not have to significantly lower his front shoulders or scrape his belly, make sure that door is high enough. Stand over the Greenland Dog and measure the width of the broadest point of the Greenland Dog’s shoulders.

How to Build a Dog House for Your Greenland Dog: Elevation

2. Remember to elevate the dog house several inches from the ground to allow water and air to flow below. To dissuade bugs from invading the dog house, and taking your Greenland Dog’s health into consideration, remember how important 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 Greenland Dog can use the heat of its own body to heat up the space if it is extremely cold or windy outside. Consider adding a partial panel which will permit your Greenland Dog to escape the bad weather. Your animal can choose to just sleep in the front room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner sanctum. Your beloved Greenland Dog would probably appreciate having a pillow or some sort of pallet to sleep on.

3. To prevent rain entering the dog house make the floor just a bit tilted toward the entryway and build the roof a bit angled, as well. Make sure the 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 is facing a different direction. Most dog house plans recommend that the house door faces east. The cold air will not be able to whip through the door then.
