Build a House for Your Tibetan TerrierGreater than 50% of owners permit their Tibetan Terriers to live indoors and sleep on the sofa or in the owner’s bed. For those of you guys who are wanting to know how to build a dog house for your Tibetan Terrier, following are some easy rules to follow when deciding what type of shelter you want to provide for your Tibetan Terrier.

How to Build Your Tibetan Terrier a House: Size

1. You should begin your house building process by making sure the house is big enough to accommodate your Tibetan Terrier’s potential mature size. People enjoy having around two feet of air overhead in a room in order to live without feeling boxed in. The Tibetan Terrier will also enjoy having that much room. The target zone for both people and Tibetan Terriers is about 33% of their standing height. To calculate how much space the Tibetan Terrier will need get a ruler and measure your Tibetan Terrier. Measure him standing straight up, sitting on his haunches and above all measure the full dimension of the Tibetan Terrier when he is in the most relaxed, comfortable, and stretched out position he can get into. Your Tibetan Terrier should be able to gaze out the front entrance when both standing up and sitting. So the Tibetan Terrier won’t have to significantly lower his front shoulders or scrape his tummy, make sure that door is high enough. Stand above the Tibetan Terrier and measure the width of the widest point of the Tibetan Terrier’s shoulders.

Building Your Tibetan Terrier a Dog House: Elevation

2. Don’t forget to elevate the dog house several inches from the ground to permit water and air to flow below. To discourage pests from invading the dog house, and taking your Tibetan Terrier’s health into consideration, remember how important air circulation is. Install a few nickel-sized openings in the walls under the eaves. Put a wind block inside the dog house so the Tibetan Terrier can use the warmth of its own body to heat the space if it is really cold or windy outside. Think about adding a partial wall which will permit your Tibetan Terrier to escape the unpleasant weather. Your Tibetan Terrier can decide to just sleep in the front room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner sanctum. Your beloved Tibetan Terrier would probably appreciate having a cushion or some sort of bedding to snooze on.

Building Your Tibetan Terrier a House: Weather Resistant

3. To avoid rain coming into the dog house make the floor just a little bit slanted toward the entrance and build the roof a little bit angled, as well. Ensure the 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 dog house plans suggest that the dog house entrance faces east. The cold air won’t be able to rush through the doorway then.

Add Hinges to the Roof of Your Tibetan Terrier’s Dog House

5. It is suggested that you put hinges on the roof when you build your Tibetan Terrier a house. This makes it simpler for you to clean your Tibetan Terrier’s home. You should clean the Tibetan Terrier’s house as often as you give your Tibetan Terrier a bath.
