  1. I’ve wanted a Dog for many years now and have been doing a lot of research. This website has given me great information to help me make an informative decision when adopting a dog. Getting a dog or pet isn’t something that should be rushed and it’s not just a pet it’s a family member❤️ 🐕
    So keep posting great information so I can be ready.
    Thanks

      Thank you for your comment Rosa. I’m glad that Dog House Times has helped you in your decision making with getting a dog for you and your family.

  2. Wow! Love this site, it’s fun and educational. The thing I like best is the easy how-to steps , simple to follow, especially for me who needs easy. So many of our family members have pooches and are in need of a warm dog house but found the ones on the market too expensive. I found ones that were cheaper but the quality wasn’t as good. We wouldn’t want our babies freezing in their dog house- so this is for me. DIY is the way to go- plus you can custom it to your liking. Wheels on the house are an amazing idea! I know in the winter, we’d prefer it closer to the house but in the warmer months we’d move it under our tree- depending on which dog is visiting. Plus when we’re at the cottage there are lots of dogs and we’ll need more than one that’s for sure. Sometimes there are cats visiting too, so I guess I’ll have to build a smaller one- they don’t like the cat carrier we’ve used in the past because they think they’re going to the vet.
