Medium Dog House

A medium dog house is one that is designed for the medium-sized dog breeds, such as: Basset Hound, Brittany Spaniel, Boxer, Boxer, Irish Terrier, Lhasa Apso, Standard Poodle, Miniature Schnauzer, Setter and Shar-Pei. The house should be just big enough for your dog to enter, turn around, and lie down. Anything larger is at your discretion, but body heat retention during the winter could be an issue depending on the severity of the winters in your area. Bigger is not always better when it comes to dog houses.

Here is an example of a medium dog house. This particular model is made of solid natural cedar and measures 32L x 40W x 34H inches externally and 31L x 25W x 28H inches inside the house. It comes with a removable roof to simplify cleaning and maintenance.
