There's a reason dogs are referred to as "man's best friend". They're incredibly adorable, exceedingly loyal, and bundles of fun. Like other family members, they deserve their own special place where they can go to enjoy some quiet time. Outdoor dog houses are the perfect addition to your home--they provide your dog with a quiet place to relax and they add charming decor to your yard. There are a few different factors to think about before buying your pet pooch a new dog house. For instance, you’ll need to know where you’re putting the house, what material it’s made from, and what features you want with your dog house kit.
A collar is an important piece of safety gear for our constant companions, but is a harness a better choice for your dog? If your dog is a puller or a jumper, a front-clip harness may provide greater control and minimize these behaviors. Collars may restrict the airways of dogs affected by tracheal collapse, as well as brachycephalic dog breeds—think Pugs and Boston Terriers—so a harness may be a safer option. Narrow-skulled dogs or breeds with a thick neck are often masters at slipping out of a collar—and thus may be less likely to escape from a securely fitted harness.
