    Outdoor dog houses do important work: They protect your pet from the sun, rain, or snow. They generally come in either manufactured wood or plastic. Some important considerations are how big your dog is and how much space she will need to be comfortable in an enclosure. Also, think about where you live and what kind of weather conditions the structure will have to withstand? If you live somewhere with a lot of precipitation, you’ll want a model that has a roof that can mitigate the potential damage to the structure. Some come with a hatch that opens at the top, allowing you to pluck your dog out of there if she doesn’t feel like coming out on her own.
