For those of you guys who are wanting to know how to build a dog house for your Phalene, following are our simple rules to follow when deciding the type of shelter you want to build for your Phalene.

Building Your Phalene a House: Size

1. You should begin your dog house building process by making sure the house is big enough to accommodate your Phalene’s potential adult size. Humans enjoy having about two feet of air overhead in a room in order to live without feeling claustrophobic. The Phalene will probably also appreciate having that much room. The target zone for both people and Phalenes is about a third of their standing height. To calculate how much room the Phalene will need go get a ruler and measure your Phalene. Measure him standing straight up, resting on his haunches and above all measure the full dimension of the Phalene when he is in the most relaxed, comfortable, and stretched out position he can get into. Your Phalene should be able to gaze out the front entrance when both sitting and standing. So the Phalene will not have to significantly lower his front shoulders or scrape his belly, make sure that door is tall enough. Stand over the Phalene and measure the width of the broadest point of the animal’s shoulders.

2. Don’t forget to raise the dog house several inches from the ground to permit water and air to flow below. To dissuade bugs from invading the house, and taking your Phalene’s health into consideration, remember how vital fresh air is. Put in a few nickel-sized openings in the panels below the eaves. Put a wind block inside the dog house so the Phalene can use the heat of its own body to heat the area if it is extremely cold or breezy outside. Think about adding a partial wall which will permit your Phalene to escape the inclement weather. Your animal can choose to just sleep in the entry room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner sanctum. Your beloved pet would probably love having a pillow or some sort of pallet to snooze on.

4. In America most storms come from the west and south so ensure the house faces a different direction. Most dog house plans suggest that the house entrance faces east. The cold air won’t be able to whip through the entryway then.
