How to Size a Dog House

One of the most important attributes of a dog house is that it be the appropriate size for your pet. I have had requests for different sizes of my “Savannah Cabannah,” so you asked and you shall receive.

I now have 3 additional sizes to accomodate any breed and size of dog. My original design is the L” = Large, being 5′-0″ x 3′-0″. This size is pretty large. This accomodates the needs and uses of larger breed dogs, but not the right size for all dogs. So, I designed the same doghouse, for 3 more sizes: S=Small, M=Medium and XL=Extra Large. I have a list of all registered dog breeds according to size, with the appropriate size of dog house required per the dogs size.

Small: 3′-0″ x 2′-0″
Medium: 4′-0″ x 2′-6″
Large: 5′-0″ x 3′-0″
Extra Large: 5′-0″ x 4′-0″

The design equation I used is recommended by the Colorado Humane Society. While there are many design equations out there, I went to my local source, being here in Denver and used the following:

Depth = dog’s length + 12″
Width = dog’s length + 18″
Height = dog’s height + 3″ (low side), height + 9″ (high side)

Size of Sleeping Area Floor Space – With each inch of your dog’s height (measured from top of shoulder to ground) allow 36 square inches of floor space. For example, a dog 12 inches tall needs 432 square inches of floor space, or a floor area of 16″ by 27″ = 432 square inches.

Height of Sleeping Area – Add 1 or 2 inches to your dog’s measurement when in a sitting position (from top of head to ground), in order to determine the ceiling height. For example, a dog 12 inches tall will have a sitting height of about 14 inches and the doghouse ceiling should be 15 or 16 inches high.

Overall Doghouse Dimensions – For example, a Dalmatian (20″ tall, sitting height 23″) doghouse should measure: sleeping area – 20″ x 36″; hall area – 12″ x 20″; ceiling height – 25″; doorways – 10″ square; roof – 36″ x 72″.

With that, please print off the following chart for you to decide what “Savannah Cabannah” is right for your dog.
