The look of the dog house is nice, much more appealing than some others I've seen. The wood used is somewhat thin, but it works, and for the price I paid I really can't complain. I've read other reviews saying the flooring collapsed, but I have yet to have a problem.
I have a 4 month old pitbull who is using it, and she has chewed some of the framing around the entrance but it is still intact. I expected her to be a little destructive which is why I decided not to spend more on a house, considering I may have to purchase another in the near future, but so far so good and I doubt I'm going to end up having to purchase another anytime soon.
We have had some rain and it has not leaked. I have a dog bed inside and it has stayed dry. We keep her outside while at work...I did not purchase the plastic flaps for the door, so I just faced the house away from the wonderful and it's worked fine. I was also worried if I used those it would deter her from entering it.
Bottom line...my dog uses it and it works. I'd repurchase.
It was an important day , our German Shepherd's birthday , who is being trained as a Service Dog for our daughter.
We should have gotten what we paid to receive , without having to re-do the job of the assembly line worker who did not realize just how big of a deal their job was.
Very angry. I sincerely hope that the seller is not knowingly shipping out others like this . It may just be a dog house, but this day was a big deal to our family.
It originally arrives in 8 wooden peices- along with about 30 nuts and bolts. It's boxed neatly, and I recieved no broken peices. We have a tough shipping transit by plane to our rural homestead- so I was really surprised to see that this box made it in good condition. It's heavy! Very heavy. I'd guestimate around 100 pounds. If you're not too keen on lifting heavy objects, make sure there's someone around to help you move it when it arrives.
I assembled mine inside, but looking back I'd highly recommend you assemble it either in a garage or in the exact spot you intend to have the house set up. This thing is huge! And it holds true to its original measurements- 40 x 48 x 45. It also has a really strong chemical smell- I'm assuming from the finish placed on the wood. It doesn't smell like cedar. It smells like toxic paint. It stunk up my entire home. Luckily, I'm not sensitive to smells. I assembled it, alone, in about 2 1/2 hours. But with two carpenntry-inclined individuals it could easily be up in just 30 minutes. I started with the walls. I set them all up, and then slid the bolts into each matching hole. Once that was finished I went around and put nuts on each one. Then I went around and retightened each nut. I then flipped the walls upside down and attached the raised 'feet' of the house. This keeps it about 4 inches off the ground. Once again they bolted in. Then I flipped the house over and set the floor boards in. These do not attach to the house- rather they all connect and lay flat in the bottom. There are no screws- they just fit in like puzzle peices (this proved to be a problem later- but I'll get to that soon). Once finished with the floor I attached the roof. This is the only part thar requires screws- and for me a Dewalt. It fit on snug and easily. The end... or so I thought.
The first problem arose when moving the house outside. Because the floor boards aren't actually attached, they quickly fell out when I tipped the house verticle to get it out of the door. So I had to reinstall them once the house was outside. This didn't seem like a big issue, but the floor boards became a bigger problem in the winter time. In Alaska, obviously, we get snow. Dog houses need to be lifted up periodically throughout the winter. These floor boards would crack, flip, and fall out each time I lifted the house. Overtime one or two boards completely fell off- making an easy place for my dogs poor paws to get caught. They eventually all completely fell apart- and by the end of the winter my dogs were sleeping outside because the house flooring was so uncomfortable.
In the beginning of the winter the house seemed really sturdy. The slanted roof let snow easily fall off. The huge door let me dogs sit upright (they're medium to large sized malimutes- to give a size comparison). The roof shingles were wood- which made a comfortable spot for the dogs to lay down in the sun, rather than on the snowey ground. They LOVED the roominess of the house. But as the winter got colder, and windier, the huge door began to let snow in. And the roominess offered absolutely no insulation from the cold. The walls seemed really thin and drafts were evident. I ended up fabricating an insulation kit with blankets, pillows, and hay to keep them warm.
Of course, as we already know, by the end of the winter they were spending more time outside than inside the house. At this point the snow began to melt and things got even worse (as if that was possible). Mind you, it had only been aboout 9 months of use by this point. But with the melting snow the wood began to absorb every inkling of moisture. No idea why, but it was terrible! The roof began to concave in, and when the dogs would hop up on it, it'd bounce like a trampoline. The walls began to wobble back and fourth and even after reinforcing the bolts, they began to sag (bend inwards). Eventually the roof completely fell through. And when I picked up the house to throw it away the walls split in half. So after 10 months of use this dog house quickly became a poor investment. This time I opted for a smaller, thicker, pine constructed dog house in a similar style. I like the offset door because the dogs can either choose to look outside or hide away. The raised floor kept snow off, but the unconnected floor boards caused some major issues. I took the ideas that I liked (slanted roof, offset door, raised floor) and transferred them to my new buy. But I also looked for options of a different kind of wood, a thicker construction, a better roof (with actual shingles, versus wood, and a more insulated interior.
I really loved the look of this house. It was perfect! But it's quality was undeniably the worst I've ever seen. If they'd opt for sturdier wood, a better finish, and a more secure floor construction they'd have a great design! But when it's built this way, it's definitely not worth one penny.
It was very easy to put together, however, it states that you only need a screwdriver (it should specify a Phillips) but I had to use a drill in order to get the plastic feet on. In taking the advice from another user, I opted not to screw the roof to the main structure. I wanted to be able to take it off for ease of shaking out the towels and blankets from time to time.
I'm also going to take the advice of another fellow user and paint them with polyurethane once a year to protect the wood from rotting. I intend, too, to shingle the roofs using liquid nails. Not sure if this will keep the roof from leaking but that's my plan....so far. All in all I like this product, I just wish I had gotten a larger size.
