If you have decided to treat your beloved dog to a new home of his or her own in the backyard, you no doubt have started looking into the many options available. Perhaps one of the biggest decisions you will have to make as you shop around is the material that the new home will be made of, here are some options:
Wood - Usually Cedar
When it comes to materials you will find that there are tons of options to choose from, including hard plastics, laminate woods, composite boards, and more. Western cedar is one of the most popular options available, not just because it is affordable, but also because many types are weather-resistant, too.
Composite & Eco-Friendly
Composite houses offer you an additional benefit other than being weather-resistant. This is a truly sturdy material, and it can hold up to the task of being your pup's outdoor home. Some materials will break down when your pooch scratches or chews on them, and of course even cedar will do this with continued abuse. However, when you compare composite material to others available, it is one of the most sturdy and durable on the market.
