Small Dog House
A small dog house is one that is designed for the smaller dog breeds, such
as: Chihuahua, Yorkshire Terrier, Scottish Terrier, Shih Tzu, Toy Poodle and the
Beagle. There are a number of small dog houses on the market, including a number
of models designed for indoor use and others with fancy touches such as lofts
Regardless of design, 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.
