A two-compartment cellar will provide your dog with a warm, dry outer coat. Make it wide enough for the dog to sleep or lie flat on the inside compartment, adding 15 cm to the length and width of the dog when it is screwed. Make the outer compartment half the length of the interior.

For the height, measure the dog from the ground to the top of the head in the sitting position and add 15 cm. Cut the doorways at shoulder height and 5 cm wider than the dog’s shoulders.

Add the width and length of the two compartments and loop the floor of this size using 18mm outer plywood. For base, make a scaffold the size of the floor using soft wood of 5 × 10 cm section. Secure the floor by screwing it to the base.

For the roof, use 18mm outdoor plywood panels. Attach them to the top with plastic gaskets. The roof flap should be 5 cm protruding all around the house. Cover the roof with stuck fabric with wide-headed nails.

Join the walls, the interior partition and the base using plastic joints or screws applied on wooden slats. The roof should be stuck with clerks to be able to take it out to clean the case from the inside.

Paint the exterior walls and base with an appliance hand and then with a binder and varnish or a layer of a wood protection product.

Put the dog house where the dog can see the comings and goings of family members. Disinfect it regularly; cover the inside compartment with pieces of newspaper, which should change frequently.
