Greater than fifty percent of the population permit their Kannis to live indoors and sleep on their sofa or in the owner’s bed. For those of you all who are wondering how to build a dog house for your Kanni, below are our simple rules to follow when considering the type of house you want to build for your Kanni.
Building Your Kanni a House: Size
1. You should start your house building process by ensuring the house is big enough to accommodate your Kanni’s potential mature size. People enjoy having approximately two feet of air above us in a room to live without feeling claustrophobic. The Kanni will also enjoy having that much room. The comfort zone for both people and Kannis is around 33% of their standing height. To figure out how much room the Kanni will need get a ruler and measure your Kanni. Measure him standing straight up, sitting on his haunches and most importantly measure the full dimension of the Kanni when he is in the most comfortable, relaxed and stretched out position he can get into. Your Kanni should be able to peer out the front entrance when both sitting and standing. So the Kanni won’t have to significantly lower his front shoulders or scrape his belly, make sure that entrance is tall enough. Stand over the Kanni and measure the breadth of the broadest point of the Kanni’s shoulders.

2. Remember to raise the dog house several inches from the ground to permit water and air to flow below. To discourage pests from entering the dog house, and taking your Kanni’s health into consideration, remember how vital air circulation is. Put in a few nickel-sized holes in the walls under the eaves. Put a wind block inside the dog house so the Kanni can use the warmth of its body to heat up the space if it is extremely cold or breezy outside. Think about adding a partial wall which will permit your Kanni to escape the inclement weather. Your animal 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 pallet to snooze on.

3. To avoid rain entering the dog house make the floor just a bit angled in the direction of the entryway and construct the roof a bit tilted, as well. Ensure the dog house is well insulated but you should not paint the interior.
4. In the United States most storms come from the west and south so make sure the dog house faces a different direction. Most house plans suggest that the house doorway faces east. The cold air won’t be able to rush through the entryway then.
