Is A Dog House For My Dog Really Necessary?

Have you ever been to a friend's house and had their dog jump all over you and generally become a pest? Did the owner keep hollering at the poor thing to go away.
Was there a place that it could go?
Your answer to that is actually an answer to the initial question about a dog house being a necessity.
I am one of the people who feel that every living thing needs a home, whether it is a hole in a tree, a cave or a hive with the rest of the bees.
I currently have 2 small dogs, a Dachshund and a Chihuahua, but over the years my wife and I have had numerous pets of all varieties.
Every animal that we have had, demonstrated the need for a place to call their own.
Our goldfish staked claim to certain portions of the tank, our cats laid claim to the areas where their bed and food were and even our goats had a nice shelter but each selected one side as their very own.
When my wife and I go on a trip or a vacation and stay in a hotel, it is inevitable that we will each claim a portion of the room as ours. It might be one side of the bed, a couple of dresser drawers for our stuff or even one of the chairs in the room.
Now, put yourself in your dog's shoes or paws as the case might be. Don't you think that your loving pet would like a little corner of the world to call their own? A place to stash their toys, curl up in their blanket and just relax away from the family and the confusion that sometimes results.
My two dogs are housed in our laundry room because they are so small and can't have an outside dog house. Each of them has their own crate, their own food bowls and their own basket for their special toys.
Of course, just like people, they sometimes swap toys, beds and eat each others food. But they both know what stuff is theirs and what belongs to the other.
If you have a pet that stays outside all the time they definitely need a dog house. I can't imagine just throwing a blanket on the porch and thinking that this is enough to keep the pet safe, warm and secure. In the human world I believe that is called homelessness.
Do your dog a big favor, either build or buy them a great dog house. They are "man's best friend", fiercely loyal, always glad to see you and always willing to give you lots of love and affection. Show them how much you love and care for them, they deserve a nice new home.

Without a place to call their own, a dog can start to think that your whole house is theirs, and then the problems begin.
