Now that the cold weather is coming I have been winterizing the kennels here. Our kennels are 10x10 with a cement floor and a roof, that I custom build, to keep the rain/snow out. Our dog houses are also custom built by my father in law Mike. They have two rooms so our dogs can get out of the wind. Mike insulates the floor, walls, and ceiling very well and seals all the wood seams. These dog houses are the best built houses I have ever seen! We also add some straw to each house for added insulation and comfort for the dogs. Next we enclose three sides of the kennel to limit the wind and snow that actually gets in the kennel. Our kennels face south so the cold northern winds do not blow into them. Each kennel has a heated water bucket so our dogs have access to fresh water all the time. The last thing we do is increase our dogs diets. During the winter a dog will burn more calories to stay warm. We do everything we can to make sure our dogs are as comfortable as possible during the winter months!
We still have three female Dutch Shepherd Puppies available! Also if anyone is interested in a custom built dog house let me know! These houses are insulated very well to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
