Igloo Dog HouseIf you’re looking for a great way to protect your furry, four-legged friend from the elements outdoors, then an igloo dog house may be the right choice for you!

These special dog houses actually look like an igloo made from a hard molded plastic and usually contain an internal foam structure to keep them cooler in summer and warm in the winter; some even include ventilation windows.

They vary in sizes, shapes, prices and brands.

Whether you have a small or large dog, you’re sure to be able to find the right igloo dog house to comfort your pet.

They usually range in sizes from medium (37.5″ x 30.5″ x 22.8″) to extra-large (51.5″ x 39.3″ x 30″).

The average size of an Irish Wolf Hound (the tallest dog breed in the world), averages at 34-35 inches tall and even it could fit easily into a large igloo dog house.

Beagles and dachshunds would also be well accommodated and comfortable in a small igloo dog house.

The igloo dog house also comes in various shapes.

Some are more round, while others are more wide or tall.

They also come with many different features such as built in ventilation windows, food and water bowl holders, as well as Microban (an antimicrobial that prevents the growth of many bacteria that can cause your pet to become sick).

Most pet parents don’t put a price on their pets comfort and safety, but most would probably agree that getting the same quality at a better price is a good deal.

The igloo dog house can be an affordable option when it comes to sheltering your pets outdoors.

Most igloo-style dog house prices average at around $85.

One of the most popular brands of igloo style dog houses is known as, Petmate.

On Petco.com, the Petmate Indigo igloo dog house is selling at only $82.70, and 104 out of 109 customers recommend the product.

There are also many other brands and sizes of the igloo dog house on Petco.com, as well as many other online pet supply stores like it, such as Petsmart.com.

It’s always best to check first with your pet’s veterinary care provider to see what is best for your dog.
