It was very easy to put together and has not fallen apart in 8+yrs. We have taken it apart to move and clean it, and we move it to different spots around the yard and it holds up well.
Our big border collie (60 lbs) and the small one (40lbs) both fit in there in a rain, thunder or snow storm. They dont seem to mind both being together in there as long as they are sheltered. Years ago, for a joke , I can remember my husband actually got into it and he's 230lbs - he backed in as far as he could go and fit !!!
The snow and rain only get inside if it's blowing sideways, I made a bed to fit inside and it rarely gets wet, but we put the house in the most sheltered position for rain/snow.
Our youngest Border Collie chews everything plastic and I mean EVERYTHING, but she has never even tried to chew this house - thank goodness.
Even after daily use for 8+yrs it still looks really good and does not look old and weathered, the floor/walls/roof have not buckled or become mis-shapen, even with the extremes of temperatures we get in Colorado. I would buy this house again in a heartbeat if anything happened to this one.
1. Large enough for him to curl up inside: Pass (barely-THAT photo has to be a small lab)
2. Keep the wind off of him in the winter: Fail
3. Keep the sun off of him in the summer: Pass
4. Keep him dry. Fail--miserably.
Problem: The sides of the house do not line up flush with base(see pic) so any rain that hits the side rolls down and goes inside the dog house instead of down onto the ground outside. (either that or its curling under the roof(which I don't think so)) I have to constantly replace cedar chips, even a slight rain will seep inside.
Its not just at the opening thats getting wet. It apparently leaks all the way around as evidenced by the rain we got last night, since the bottom piece is concaved inside it looks like a cedar chip swimming pool. ( I am ticked off - this thing cost $200.00 bucks)
The picture that is posted is misleading. The fit is not that good. If the reviews from 3-4 years ago are honest(I am suspicious) then the manufactuer has fired its quality control person. I recieved all the parts and it snapped together easily enough--this isn't a heavy duty dog house - it is just an expensive shelter. But even shelters should have the ability to keep a dog's bed dry. (call me crazy for thinking this is a basic requirement)
