For those of y’all who are interested in how to build a dog house for your Molossus, following are our simple rules to follow when considering what type of shelter you want to build for your Molossus.
Building a House for Your Molossus: Size
1. You should begin your house building process by making sure the house is large enough to fit your Molossus’s potential mature size. Humans enjoy having around 2 feet of air above us in a room to live without feeling boxed in. Your Molossus will also appreciate having that much room. The comfort zone for both humans and Molossuss is around 33% of their standing height. To figure out how much space the Molossus will need get out a ruler and measure your Molossus. Measure him standing straight up, sitting on his haunches and especially measure the full dimension of the Molossus when he is in the most relaxed, comfortable, and stretched out position he can get into. Your Molossus should be able to gaze out the front entrance when both sitting and standing. So the Molossus will not have to significantly lower his front shoulders or scrape his stomach, make sure that door is tall enough. Stand over the Molossus and measure the breadth of the broadest point of the Molossus’s shoulders.
How to Build a House for Your Molossus: Elevation
2. Don’t forget to elevate the dog house several inches from the ground to permit air and water to flow underneath. To discourage pests from invading the house, and taking your Molossus’s health into consideration, remember how vital air circulation is. Put in a few nickel-sized openings in the panels below the eaves. Install a wind block inside the dog house so the Molossus can use the warmth of its own body to heat the space if it is very cold or windy outside. Consider adding a partial wall which will permit your Molossus to escape the unpleasant weather. Your Molossus can choose to just sleep in the entry room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner room. Your beloved pet would probably love having a cushion or some sort of pallet to snooze on.
Building a Dog House for Your Molossus: Weather Resistant
3. To avoid rain entering the dog house make the floor just a bit slanted toward the entrance and build the roof a little bit on an angle, as well. Ensure the dog house is well insulated but you shouldn’t paint the interior.
4. In the United States most storms come from the west and south so ensure the dog house is facing a different direction. Most house plans recommend that the dog house doorway faces east. The cold air will not be able to rush through the entryway then.
Add Hinges to the Roof of Your Molossus’s Dog House
5. It’s recommended that you put hinges on the roof when you build your Molossus a house. This makes it easier for you to empty your Molossus’s house. You should clean your Molossus’s house as frequently as you give your Molossus a bath.
