If you are looking at insulated dog houses, you want your outdoor dog to be safe and comfortable this winter and I do, too, There are a wide-variety of insulated dog houses available.

Which dogs need an insulated dog house? A good general rule is the more time a dog spends inside, the more snug and insulated an outdoor house needs to be. The less hair a dog has and the thinner he is, the more insulated the dog house needs to be. The reverse is also true, the more time a dog spends outside, the more adapted he is to the outside and the more fur and the heavier a dog is, the more he is self-insulated.
Insulated dog houses with good bedding and tight doors that face away from the prevailing winds make life a lot more comfortable for your dog in the cold winter months. Here are some of the best:

There are plenty of other insulated dog houses on Amazon nut most fall well short in one way or another. Some otherwise fine plastic ones have flimsy doors that dump rain into the house itself. That’s not good. Others have optional fabric liners which can get sodden. That’s not good.
