Build a House for Your Chien-GrisMore than fifty percent of the population allows their Chien-Griss to live indoors and sleep on their couch or in the bed. For those of y’all who are wondering how to build a dog house for your Chien-Gris, following are our simple rules to follow when figuring out the type of house you want to provide for your Chien-Gris.

How to Build Your Chien-Gris a Dog House: Size

1. You should begin your house building process by ensuring the house is big enough to accommodate your Chien-Gris’s potential adult size. People enjoy having approximately 2 feet of air overhead in a room in order to live without feeling claustrophobic. Your Chien-Gris will also enjoy having that much space. The target zone for both humans and Chien-Griss is around 1/3 of their standing height. To figure out how much space the Chien-Gris will need get a tape measure and measure your Chien-Gris. Measure him standing straight up, resting on his haunches and above all measure the full dimension of the Chien-Gris when he is in the most stretched out, comfortable, and relaxed position he can get into. Your Chien-Gris should be able to peer out the front door while both sitting and standing. So the Chien-Gris won’t have to significantly lower his front shoulders or drag his stomach, make sure that entrance is high enough. Stand above the Chien-Gris and measure the width of the widest point of the animal’s shoulders.

How to Build a House for Your Chien-Gris: Elevation

2. Don’t forget to elevate the dog house several inches from the ground to permit air and water to flow below. To dissuade bugs from entering the house, and taking your Chien-Gris’s health into consideration, remember how important fresh air is. Install a few nickel-sized holes in the walls underneath the eaves. Install a wind block inside the house so the Chien-Gris can use the warmth of its body to warm the space if it is extremely cold or breezy outside. Think about adding a partial panel which will permit your Chien-Gris to escape the nasty weather. Your animal can decide to just snooze in the entry room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner room. Your beloved pet would probably appreciate having a pillow or some sort of pallet to snooze on.

Building Your Chien-Gris a Dog House: Weather Resistant

3. To avoid rain entering the house make the floor just a bit slanted in the direction of the opening and build the roof a little bit tilted, as well. Ensure the dog house is well insulated but you should not paint the inside.

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