TruPoint Backyards has sheds for every member of the family and even our four-legged friends. Our dog kennels do not lack space and provide both outdoor enjoyment and indoor protection when needed.
Many of us enjoy having our pets in the house with us, but the outdoors is a dog’s natural environment, and they will enjoy being outside if the weather isn’t too extreme in one direction or the other.
Here are four advantages to having an outdoor dog kennel.
Better for Your Dog While You’re Not Home
A dog having additional space to enjoy the fresh air and use the bathroom are just two reasons why it’s better for dogs to be somewhat free outdoors than kept in a cramped kennel or cage inside the house. And if you leave them to roam the house, you run the risk of the dog chewing or eating something that it’s not supposed to, especially if it’s facing any separation anxiety.
Having the kennel also gives you peace of mind when you must be away from the house for an entire day, knowing that the dog has different areas to move around and use the bathroom if needed.
A Dog Kennel is Perfect for Outdoor Breeds
If you have a working dog or a hunting dog, the pup may be happier living in the outdoor kennel rather than in the house at most times of the year. These dogs also tend to be larger and have heavier coats, more suited for outdoor living. You’ll have to make sure that you have the correct size kennel for the dog’s size.
Keep the House Cleaner
If you or someone in your house suffers from allergies, having a dog can make things miserable for that person. It can sometimes be hard to keep up between the hair and the dog bringing in allergens from the outside. It can be beneficial to have an area for the dog to relax while you’re cleaning the house and even limit the time that Fido spends inside during allergy season, which is usually in the spring when temperatures are moderate enough for a dog to be able to stay outdoors comfortably.
Accommodating Non-Dog Lovers
You may have relatives or friends who aren’t exactly dog people, so having a place for your pup to comfortably stay while you have these house guests is a nice perk to have. Much like the earlier point, you can also have a spot for the dog if any guests have specific allergies.
TruPoint Backyards’ dog kennels have 6.5-foot walls and a Techshield radiant barrier on the roof, so it doesn’t get too hot or cold inside. Visit our shed sales center or click here to request a quote for a custom dog kennel today!
