Pet Squeak Dog House Review/Giveaway! #Petacular
Lori with At the Fence has today's post. This one is sooo neat! Pansy is really enjoying it and can't wait until summer so that we can all sit outside together.
Here is a dog house by Pet Squeak that is simply stunning. We received ours and my husband put it together in less than an hour. It was so easy to follow the directions and build the Pet Squeak Porch Pups House. He built it inside because it was so cold out. It is now sitting on our deck waiting for the snow to melt before we place it in the yard. We have actually considered keeping it on the back deck. That way our girls can relax beside us!
Assembly: As I stated above this was very easy to put together. With a screwdriver and a pair of pliers it was finished in under an hour. The kit basically came with the four walls, two pieces of roof, two pieces of the floor and three pieces to form the porch. The porch does not attach to the dog house, which means you can move it to the side if you wish or not use it at all. We have it in the front. As I said he built it in the house, and then we carried it outside. It does weigh approx. 60 lbs.
This Porch Pups House has a small front porch for your dog to relax on. You can position it where you want as it does not actually attach to the dog house. You could even use it separately if you wanted to. The Porch Pups House we received is a large one. The measurements are:
External: 35-1/2L by 37-3/4-inch Width by 30-inch Height - Internal: 28-3/4L by 30-1/4-inch Width by 25-inch Height - Door Opening: 15-1/2H by 11-3/4W-inch. Porch Dimensions - 15-3/4L by 32-inch Width by 12-1/2-inch Height. Overall External dimension is inclusive of the roof, which will have an overhang. Internal dimensions indicate the habitable space for your pet, and are inclusive of the size of the interior floor space.
This house comes with a door on hinges. The door has a window with bars for ventilation. The door also has a small heart shaped lock on it, just in case you need to keep your dog inside the house. One side of the house has ventilation openings in the side wall, so your dog will be quite comfortable inside. The dog house is raised off the ground. The roof is designed so your pet should stay nice and dry inside. If you have a chewer, they might decide to chew on the porch railings.
Now, the only thing I see that maybe isn't quite as helpful is this is advertised as large. It is honestly designed more for a medium size dog, like our Shelties. There is no way a large dog would fit through the door. Otherwise, I am totally impressed with this dog house from Pet Squeak. I am seriously considering keeping it on our back deck, so the dogs can go in and out as they please, or even relax on their porch while we relax on ours.
