German Shepherd Dog House

If you are getting a new dog for your family, you will have some initial questions to answer about how you are going to raise your pet. Is this going to be an inside dog or an outside dog? If you are raising an inside dog, you will have to deal with a whole host of problems like teaching him what furniture pieces he can and can't be on. But if you are raising an outdoor dog, you need to think about how you are going to train your new pet to deal with living outside.

The first thing you need to do is have a house for your dog to live in. Dogs need a safe and dry space that they can call their own. Inside this is often a bed or crate, but if they are outside, you should look more towards a house.

When selecting a dog house it should be big enough that your dog can stand up and move around inside. It doesn't need to be too much bigger than that, as dogs like their dens to be cozy and not too large.

When you are first bringing your new dog home, you will have to teach him that the dog house is his space. This could take some time and prodding. You should first let your new family member walk around the house and get to know it. He is going to want to do a lot of sniffing, getting to know the scents that are around your yard and the new house.

Next you want to get your dog to go inside the house. You shouldn't push your dog too much. Forcing him inside is just going to make the dog house seem like a frightening place to be. Instead, use positive reinforcement to get him inside. If your dog likes a particular type of treat, you may want to show him one of those treats and put it right by the door of his house.

Once you dog takes that treat you can push another one a little further into the house. Now he should be willing to peek his head inside to get the treat. At the same time he will be taking note of what he sees and realize it is not threatening.

You may have to repeat this a few times, moving treats further and further into the dog house until your dog realizes it is safe to be completely inside the house. You should spend some time with him at the house. When he is young he is looking to you as his keeper and the person who he should follow. The longer you stay by the house with him, the more he understands it's safe to be there and that he can get comfortable.

Speaking of getting comfortable, you should consider comforts for your dog while in his dog house to make it cozy. You can put a dog bed inside or at least a blanket and other items that will make it seem like a home.

If you keep this up while your dog is a puppy, by the time he is old enough to go outside for good, he will be comfortable living in his house.
