The natural insulating value of wood is 2 to 5 times higher than that of most other material used for pet houses: keeps your pet warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The stable cellular structure of wood enables the houses to withstand humidity and extreme temperatures. And pets also enjoy the natural scent of wood.
Houses feature removable roof top and bottom panels for easy maintenance. Raised bottom design keeps pets dry. Houses come in easily assembled panels with easy-to-follow instructions.

Some assembly required; takes about 30 minutes.
- The door height of the house should be at least 75 percent of your pet's shoulder height (from the ground to the neck).
- The length and width of the house should be at least equal to but not more than 25 percent larger than the distance between the nose and the root of the tail.
- The height of the house should be at least 25 percent (but no more than 50 percent) taller than the height from the top of the dog’s head to his/her toes.
