Dog houses need to fit to needs of your Yorkie
So for your dog to be happy
, pick a dog house that is big enough for your dog to stand up and turn around in, but not much bigger than that because your dog’s body heat helps warm up the dog house in the winter. For small dogs and dogs from warmer climates, look for insulated or double-walled dog houses. Insulated dog houses stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer, just like human houses. If you get a lot of wind, you may want to add a door, which is available for most dog houses. Finally, if you live in an area of extreme hot or cold, you may consider a heated or air-conditioned house for your dog, but I would recommend checking with your vet first.
