Building a dog house shed can be simple or complex, depending on the style of a dog house that you want. Building your dog house should be at least 3 times the size of your dog in order to make him or her live comfortably.
You must also take into consideration what else may be taking up room in your dog house such as dog pads or blankets, doggy bowls for food, or even dog toys.
Once you calculate the excess materials needed to place in the dog house, then calculate how much extra room is needed to make your dog house 3 times the size of your actual dog.
One last pointer for making space in a dog house is the roof. Two reasons why you want the roof bigger is that you want enough room for the dog to sit, plus if you have a little heater, you can mount it in the peak of the roof while still giving the dog room to sit up.
