1. You should start your house building process by ensuring the house is large enough to fit your Wetterhoun’s potential adult size. Humans enjoy having about two feet of air overhead in a room to live without feeling claustrophobic. Your Wetterhoun will probably also appreciate having that much room. The target zone for both humans and Wetterhouns is about 1/3 of their standing height. To calculate how much space the Wetterhoun will need go get a measuring tape and measure your Wetterhoun. Measure him standing straight up, resting on his haunches and especially measure the full dimension of the Wetterhoun when he is in the most comfortable, relaxed and stretched out position he can get into. Your Wetterhoun should be able to peer out the front door when both sitting and standing. So the Wetterhoun won’t have to significantly lower his front shoulders or drag his belly, make sure that door is high enough. Stand over the Wetterhoun and measure the breadth of the broadest point of the Wetterhoun’s shoulders.

Put in a few nickel-sized holes in the panels underneath the eaves. Install a wind block inside the dog house so the Wetterhoun can use the heat of its body to heat up the area if it is very cold or windy outside. Consider adding a partial wall which will allow your Wetterhoun to escape the bad weather. Your animal can decide to just sleep in the front room or go around the inner archway maze wall into the inner sanctum. Your beloved pet would probably appreciate having a pillow or some sort of pallet to sleep on.
