Dog houses are available in different material – wood, plastic, fenced wires, and much more. The design of the dog house diffenders accordingly too, keeping in tune with the material used in building the dog house. Among woods, cedar, Asian fir, and pine are possibly the most used in building. Fancy, playful designs such as mansion, bungalow, houses with porches, houses with roof porches, and cabin log house are made up of the aforementioned woods.
Barn-shaped and A-shaped dog houses are possibly the most common designs adopted by novice dog house creators and companies.
