Great Danes are wonderful dogs but given that they can grow up to 36 inches, they often don't fit in regular dog houses. I came across a Special Dog House website which has a page about Great Danes and their needs.

How to build a Dog Cabin Dog House

You can use your creativity with this but I have discovered that landscaping timbers make a great log cabin for dogs. It is cooler in the Summer and warm in the Winter. I set mine on concrete blocks but a solid foundation would be nice as well. I framed the floor with 3/4 inch plywood and treated 2x4's and tied every log with 6 inch lag bolts.Each log had 4 lag bolts which run into the wood below. In between the logs I ran a line of liquid nails to seal the cracks as well as give it more strength and weather proof it. I filled it with cedar chips for both comfort for my doggies as well as insect repellent. I chose a standard house style roof frame and metal roofing but you could do shingles just as easy. I am happy to now have an all weather dog house on a permanent location at half the cost of having a not so well built pre-made dog house. I hope this inspires someone else as well. My dog cabin shown here is 8'4" square.

I am fixing a closet in my home. It is part of an exterior wall and creates a lot of coldness in the house. How can I insulate this wall better? My kid is freezing at night she says. <a href

If you have enough room behind the stud wall install 1" rigid foam tape seams and then use the thickest possible roxsul insulation to fill the studs. Or axe the foam and install 6mil plastic on warm side of the wall after insulating tape all seams when done.

What should I do in order to make sure my dog house stays cool in the summer?

In order to keep your dog's house cool during hot summer days, consider to do the following:
  • Place the dog house in the shade so it doesn't get too hot from the sun.
  • Make sure that the house is ventilated so warm air can come out.
  • If it gets really hot inside the house, you should put a fan to cool the house down or buy a small air conditioning unit made for dog houses.
  • Place a cooling mat on the ground of the house. This will help the dog to cool down during the hot summer days.

How big should my dog's house be?

The dog house should be big enough so your dog is able to move around comfortably in it and stretch fully while lying down. On the other hand, they shouldn't be too big because then the dog will feel lonely.

Is the Petmate Aspen Pets Comfort Cushion Dog Leash a good one to buy?

I have 2 really big dogs and i've used this lead with both of them. I think it's great quality and is still in good condition 6 months after i bought them despite my dogs being quite rough in the way they play with each other.

I have a really large dog. Will I be able to find a dog house for him that is big enough? I don't want to squash him.

There are websites that have whole sections dedicated to large dog houses. Some of them are fairly basic and some are almost shed-like. It really depends on your budget. Americas Pet Store have a good range:

I have a Great Dane. Is there a pet door large enough for him to use?

Absolutely! I too have a large dog and we installed a pet door for her over a year ago and she loves it. We bought our doggie door online from America's Pet Store. I will send you the link to the extra-large pet doors.


How do I know which size dog house to buy as he is a puppy and I want it to last?

Depending on the breed and size of your puppy you should ensure that you buy a big enough house, check with your local vet and ask what size they think your dog will grow to and then you can make your decision.
