Your dog should be safe from all harm. If that is an area of concern, you might try out Tuff-N-Rugged Dog House. Durable and great for all types of weather, it is easily assembled. This dog house has already won the Consumer Digest Best Buy Awards....more
The dog house snapped together in less than 5 minutes. No instructions were required, although they came with some. The floor of the dog house is soft which I did not expect. Not soft as in soft material rather soft as in molded plastic. This will be nice for the dog since it isn't HARD as a rock. This dog house should provide nice shelter for years to come since it wont rot like pine.

I was skeptical about buying this house for my Pit because I didn't know if it'd be big enough and because it was plastic. I figured my 1 year old puppy would go to town trying to see how quickly he could destroy it. From what I've observed so far I think the house will be able to handle my dog...and my dog will be able to handle the house. No problems yet! As soon as I put the 1st piece down, which was the floor, my dog instantly laid on it like it was everything he'd been waiting for! LOL! I actually snapped the house pieces together around him because he wouldn't move. He's 60 lbs and long. I wish the house was just a bit longer and the floor more firm. Other than that it's perfect for him. He likes to curl up anyway. Plus when he lays flat on his side he still fits inside. Since the floor isn't all that sturdy I took his bean bag and put it in there. That made it his official place to dwell. The first day I left him outside I walked back in the house, he normally tries to come back in with me, but this time he just went in his house, watched me go in, and laid down. I like the house!!! He loves it!
This product is really nice, it literally snapped together in minutes. And also un-assembled in minutes, as I found out too late that it would not fit through the kennel door opening assembled! Plus it was near zero degrees outside, when I assembled/disassembled this product. I had concerns that it might break in the cold, but the plastic withstood the cold quite nicely. I suspect it will handle extremes of heat, just as well. I will have to wait 6 months to find out though! The price from Overstock.com was at least $25.00 cheaper than any other website I visited. And the price of shipping, and delivery time were also reasonable. My 100 pound hound/pit bull mix
took to the house right away, and with a rug in the bottom of it , seems quite warm! I turned the back to the prevailing winds and partially covered the top of it to keep snow out of it.
I have a very large 120 lb German shepherd dog. He can stand up in the dog house however he can not exactly stretch out when he lays down in it. If he just lays straight then he is fine. If he lays on his side he has to curl up his legs. He does not spend much time in it right now, but it is the middle of summer here and we are having heat in the 100's with higher heat index. I think when it starts to cool down he will enjoy having his own shelter. My deck is a screened in porch and it is about 5.5 feet off the ground. It is very nice under the deck. That is where I put his house so it is on nice flat ground that is protected from rain. The steps and side of the house also give shelter from wind and rain. It is shady under there as well. It might be cold in the winter however. But my dog loves cold weather. I got this for him to have a place to feel safe while I am away during the day. I think he will enjoy it. The cats hang out in it. I like it just fine.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is made fairly well constructed. Not sure if it is as insulated as claimed, but it is a nice shelter for my dog.
I bought this dog house for my German Rottweiler! A very big dog that hasn't finished growing. I read all the reviews to make sure this would be big enough and sufficient for him and I am so glad I did because this is a BIG dog house. Takes about 5 minutes to snap all the peices together and is still roomy inside. At first I didn't think my dog was using it because he wouldn't stay in it when I first got it. But after a cold and rainy day here I saw him in it to keep him warm. So a wonderful product and my dog fits comfortably in it.

My 12 year old shepard/chow refused to use her previous house that had a small entrance door and an igloo shape. I had her go into this house before the roof was snapped into place. She was not distressed. I placed the roof on and invited her to go in. And now I have no worries that she is protected from the elements when I am away from home. Since the blankets are rearranged in my absence, I know she is using it when I am not home. I get befuddled easily with instructions but this house is literally a snap to put together. It just took a few minutes to snap together after I got it out of the box. Another advantage of this house is that it is easy to clean. The opening is large enough to get a broom in there to sweep it out, no need to take the roof off. I unsnapped the roof, just to see if I could and I had no problems getting it back together. My next purchase will be a nice pad to place in the house.
Excellent product. I would warn though agains using in a windy area as the dog house isn't very heavy and may blow around. Also, there are four (4) holes on each inside corner. I don't know if that is for staking down the product, or for allowing water to drain out.
I purchased the house for my older dog who is now 14. She seems to want her own space now that she older--only coming in the house at night to mingle with us and her K9 brother and sister. The house was very easy to put together. In fact, I put it together while it was raining. It takes up little space. I have it on our deck with her bowl next to it. Her medium sized bed fits in nicely. It has a vent system which is nice for summer months.
I purchased this house because a previously purchased house from another company was poorly made. It was wood and the floor did not last long--I'm giving to my mother-in-law to use as a chicken coop.
What is the difference between this product and the Comfy Cabin in size Large by the same manufacturer?
Thank you.swdc on May 15, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The immediate difference is the design, another has a 5 year warranty while one has a 1 year limited warranty and the dimensions are slightly different. Most importantly, the price is different which is effected by any number of things including year manufactured, cost to manufacture, etc.. If you are considering one - just go with the one that most suits your needs best and the price you want to pay.overstockcustomercare1 on May 18, 2012
