Having a heated dog house during the nippier months of the year is certainly necessary, especially if your dogs like hiking through the snow. These insulated houses are also ideal if you are currently caring for feral animals like cats. If you are constantly worried about your feral friends not finding shelter during inclement weather or when it just gets too cold, you need to invest in an insulated dog house. If you are placing the small houses outside, put them in the garage as these are not weatherproof.
When buying indoor houses for pets, we recommend choosing a house that is easy to assemble and can easily be cleaned and washed. Since indoor houses are often made of materials that absorb liquids, disassembly is of paramount importance.
If you can’t easily disassemble your pet house, you’re going to have issues with it later on, as it will begin to smell awkward after the first week of use. Urine and poo are unavoidable in most cases unless you have a super well-trained pup or cat. Either way, you will still have to clean your pet’s houses because of shedding and dust.
Pet Tent has created one of the plushiest indoor houses for cats and dogs. They’ve opted for a cave-like design for this model, which easily makes cats and dogs feel more secure when they are inside. Partial invisibility is one of the requirements of a safe dog house, and this plush Pet Tent provides that sense of security easily.
They’ve also manufactured the indoor house to combine easily with modern homes, so you can put it anywhere and not worry about it clashing your furniture or décor.
Measuring 19”x19”x19”, the tent can easily be cleaned (inside and outside) and can also be used as a soft pet crate so you can carry your cat and dog anywhere with ease.
The tent is naturally breathable and soft, making it an excellent carrier for all kinds of small pets, not just dogs and cats. Customers who bought the Pet Tent are delighted that their pets still have plenty of space for stretching while getting the desired privacy. If you don’t need an extra-large dog house, there’s no reason for your pet not to enjoy this indoor house.
Pick the Dog bed brand of insulated dog houses if you want that extra touch of cute and cuddly. This model is in the shape of a big shark with its maws wide open.
The external layer is very soft and insulated, making the dog house an excellent choice for cold-weather animal residence. This insulated dog house is for small dogs weighing no more than 12 pounds. Big dogs would have trouble getting in, but if you have teacup dogs or toy dogs at home, this would be ideal for them.
Make sure you buy one for each dog, so there will be no scuffles for extra space because your dogs will be very territorial after finding out how comfortable these beds are. Dog Beds measure 16.5”x16.5”x15.5” and are perfect for both cats and dogs.
All fabrics used by Dog Bed are pet-safe and are high-quality, imported fibers that will stand the test of time. All materials are washable, and you can maintain hygiene easily at home by simply washing and sweeping regularly.
This bed can also be folded to become a regular pet sofa. Assemble it fully so your pet can go inside and feel even warmer and more secure. The bottom of Dog Beds is designed to be “no-skid,” so you can be sure that your Dog Bed won’t be traveling around the living room.
Who said small pets couldn’t have cute houses? Spring Fever brings a splash of comfort and color with their cute line of small pet houses that come in five different sizes. XS measures just 10.2”x10.2” while the XL one is a massive 18.9”x18.9”.
Spring Fever indoor houses have an open entrance with sufficient coverage on the sides to make your small pets feel more secure. The added insulation and the amount of cover inside ensures that more sensitive pets (especially the smallest ones) will have no issues staying secure inside.
The cute strawberry design is a relief from the more modern (and serious-looking) aesthetics of other indoor pet houses. Your kids will also likely appreciate that this indoor house matches their energy and brand of fun.
The manufacturer uses only 100% non-toxic, pet-safe materials, so you won’t have to worry when your pet starts nibbling on the material, which always happens. Everything is washable, so urine and poo won’t be an issue. Just be diligent with washing, and everything’s going to be alright with your new colorful pet house.
This brand offers the most insulated and solidly-built design of the four indoor houses we reviewed today. Compared to the other indoor houses, this one has four walls and a separate cushion for added comfort.
This indoor house is more suitable for slightly larger dogs, too. The house measures 16”x16”x14” and can be zipped together easily for almost instant assembly.
Best for indoor spaces, you can place it outside, though we wouldn’t recommend putting it on a spot that can get wet as it is not a weatherproof pet house.
The manufacturer has also ensured that the indoor pet house’s texture and color will not clash with your décor, and you can confidently put it anywhere in the house.
If you don’t like too many flashy or bright colors, then this house’s earth tones and simple print will be more than makeup. Bring some joy to your pet’s life with an extra-secure environment at home. Pets love spaces where they can keep out of sight, and this indoor house provides that kind of experience easily.
