We enjoy having about two feet of air above us in a room to live without feeling claustrophobic. Your Smalandsstovare will also enjoy having that much space. The target zone for both humans and Smalandsstovares is approximately 1/3 of their standing height. To calculate how much room the Smalandsstovare will need go get a measuring tape and measure your Smalandsstovare. Measure him standing straight up, resting on his haunches and most importantly measure the full dimension of the Smalandsstovare when he is in the most relaxed, comfortable, and stretched out position he can get into. Your Smalandsstovare should be able to look out the front entrance while both standing up and sitting. So the Smalandsstovare won’t have to significantly lower his front shoulders or drag his belly, make sure that entrance is high enough. Stand over the Smalandsstovare and measure the width of the widest point of the Smalandsstovare’s shoulders.

To discourage pests from entering the dog house, and taking your Smalandsstovare’s health into consideration, remember how vital fresh air is. Put in a few nickel-sized openings in the panels under the eaves. Put a wind block inside the dog house so the Smalandsstovare can use the warmth of its body to warm up the space if it is extremely cold or windy outside.

Your Smalandsstovare can choose to just snooze in the front room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner sanctum. Your beloved Smalandsstovare would probably love having a cushion or some sort of pallet to sleep on.
