Unique Dog Houses - Steps to Finding the Right One

Unique dog houses - who needs them? Well your dog, for one, because your dog is unique and the choice of dog house will be easier if steps are taken to review a few basic things relating to his needs.

When you think about it, a dog's house is more or less the equivalent of a dog crate, which is more or less the equivalent of a dog's den. If you have trained your dog in a crate from the time he was a puppy then transitioning your dog to use an outside dog house will be a lot easier. He'll already be "den" oriented.

But because his new digs will be "outside", you'll want to spend a bit of time taking steps to review these things:- his size, age and appearance, climate, how much time will be spent outside, and his outdoor habits. So let's begin with

Step l - Size

While a dog house should be big enough so that your dog can stand up, turn around inside and lay down in his favorite position, don't get it too big if it is expected to provide warmth on colder days. This is especially important if you live somewhere that gets a lot of cold weather. For those dogs living in moderate climates the sizing isn't as much of a factor. One rule of thumb for sizing, is to draw a rectangle around your dog while he is lying down in his usual position - then make the rectangle 3-inches larger. than this. For height, make it 5-7 inches more taller than your dog's top of shoulder height.

Step 2 - Age And Appearance

If you are choosing a dog house for an older dog that you are adopting or a new house for a senior dog you already have, then age does have a bearing. You'll want to take a closer look at the comfort and warmth the house can provide. In this case insulated houses are better shelters and can be fitted out with substantial dog pads for comfort. When it comes to appearance, how much fur does your dog have? On cold winter days, a large and heavily coated breed will not need the same kind of shelter as a small or sparsely coated dog.

Step 3 - The Climate

For those living in climates that are not extreme in either summer or winter, your dog will probably do well in a house appropriate for all seasons. Even when it's the rainy season, many dog houses have easy to attach doors that can be removed when not needed. But, for the more extreme climates, insulated houses work the best for retaining warmth in the winter and providing a cooler interior during hot summer days. Additionally, if your dog needs more climate control, most doghouses can be connected to up with a combination heater/air conditioning unit. In areas that receive significant snowfall, the roof slope is another factor for consideration.

Step 4 - Time Spent Outside

How much time your dog spends outside will have a big influence on the type of dog house needed and where it is situated in your yard. If a dog is in his house a good deal, then it is nice to select one with a roof extending over the entrance so that he can be sheltered from sun and rain while looking out. Maybe even a little deck would be enjoyed. Raised houses are also a good choice for keeping mildew at bay, as well as preventing water or dampness from seeping into the floor. They are also not so inviting to bugs looking for a home, plus can be moved around without leaving an imprint.

Step 5 - Outdoor Activities

This step refers to how messy your dog is while outside. Is he one that frequently likes to re-landscape your yard, or dig for buried treasure in the mud and then drag his messy self back into his house for a nap? In other words, is he a dirty dog? If this is your kind of dog, then ease of clean-up may be one of your top priorities to consider! And you'll be happy to know that there are dog houses with removable roofs to make clean-up so much easier.

Portable Air Conditioner for Dog Houses

For Your Beloved Pet

Dogs are domestic creatures, though their lineage can be traced back to wolves.  Unlike their ancestors, dogs are much more vulnerable to climate changes than the average pet owner realizes. If, say, your Dalmatian is introduced to a warm climate after being in a cold one, his/her discomfort will be clearly displayed through heat boils, hair loss and increased stress. If your situation dictates that your pet must be kept outdoors, it’s imperative that you provide a comfort space where your pet can get relief from the elements.

ClimateRight brings you a product as ideal as it is efficient.   A dog house occupies only a small space in your yard, enough for a pet who probably loves the outdoors, nurturing his/her canine instincts.  Coupled with the ClimateRight CR-2550 you have the perfect solution, cooling or heating the interior of your dog house at a steady 2500 BTU while at the same time controlling humidity to keep your pet comfortable.   

A dog house is more than a mere structure …  it’s your loyal companion’s home when he/she is living outdoors.  Adding climate control to your pet’s home is a must, especially if you live in extremely hot or cold climates.   If you’re in a hot climate, like coastal Florida or South West California, it cools the inside of the dog house to the temperature you know is right for your pet. In cold regions, like Oregon or Idaho, a dog could really do with some heat.  In this case, the CR portable air conditioner heats and dehumidifies the air inside the dog house, making it a refuge worthy of your beloved pet.

Dogs are curious creatures.  Surely they will sniff out the product placed outside their home, and in the territory they protect.   Rest assured these units meet the strictest standards, put out no harmful emissions and will not harm your pet.  Marking territory is a common thing among male dogs. If he sees the unit as something to ‘mark’, it’s alright for him to do so and remain safe. This product can be cleaned with water afterward, requiring no special treatments.

Installation of a portable air conditioner for doghouses could not be easier.  Drill a couple of holes in your dog house and attach the air intake and outtake hoses for air circulation.  Plug it in, set the thermostat, and that’s it!  Your dog will find solace in his outdoor home, free from discomfort and happy as a dog can be. The next time he goes out for the night, be it hot or cold, he’ll do so gladly, tail a wagging!

Qualities of Good Air Conditioners for Tents

Portable air conditioners for tents go a long way in ensuring that we enjoy events held in the great outdoors. Outdoor events are normally held during the summer months when the weather can be extremely hot and humid. Being in a tent all afternoon on a hot summer day can be quite uncomfortable and it is for this reason that tent air conditioning is a must. Humidity and the crowd of people gathered at your event make the temperature levels rise even further making conditions very uncomfortable for your guests.   When searching for the ideal air conditioning unit for your tent, there are certain features that are a must.  Keep the following qualities in mind when conducting your search:
Easy to transport: Portable air conditioners should be easy to transport from one place to another. If you are an event planner or tend to have many outdoor family gatherings then having an ac for your tent is a must.  The unit you choose should be light weight and easy to carry, preferably with built in handles.   

Durable: Choose an air conditioner that is durable.  This is not something that you purchase frequently or is easily replaced.   Choose a model that will function for many years to come. Most are made with long time service in mind.
Powerful: The ac should have enough power to ensure suitable air flow within the tent. The size of the tent  and the corresponding specs for the new unit should guide your decision.  

Practical: The air conditioner chosen should be economical to purchase and more importantly economical to operate on an on-going basis.
Safety: The portable air conditioner you choose should be safe to use outdoors.  You should be able to place your unit outside the tent away from guests.  It should therefore be capable of sitting out in the weather … rain, snow, or extreme hot or cold weather should not affect the operation of the unit.

Features: Besides air conditioning,  good heating and dehumidifying are a necessity. These comprehensive features will allow you to hold events in virtually any season and ensure the comfort of your guests.  The capability to run on a small generator is also very desirable if you plan on hosting events in remote areas or any location that does not have permanent electricity available.  A remote control, although not absolutely necessary, can also be quite handy.
Consider the above features and you should make a wise decision on a tent ac  that will serve you well for many years to come.  A good portable air conditioner is not only reserved for event organisers but can also be useful for individuals and companies who enjoy hosting events in outdoor settings.

When in need of excellent tent air conditioning, look for a unit that comes with features that will give you and your guests a pleasant event.  Visit for more information on tent air conditioners.

Portable Air Conditioner for Camping

Camping is an enjoyable outdoor activity and provides a chance to connect with Mother Nature in the setting of your choice. During the summer, which is the most preferred time of year to go camping, the heat can cause sleepless nights. A portable air conditioner goes a long way towards cooling your tent or RV and controlling humidity to facilitate a comfortable camping adventure.

Purpose of an air conditioner when camping

Condensation Control: Air conditioners are useful when camping because of their condensation handling abilities. AC’s remove water from the air thereby reducing humidity and providing a much more comfortable and healthy environment.

Filter’s Air: Portable ac’s for camping not only cool the temperature but filter the air as well. This is quite helpful as the ac unit removes pollutants which cause allergies such as dust, bacteria, and pollen found near most camp sites. Air conditioners used for camping should be vented with air in-take and output hoses to ensure proper air circulation. Vented units are much more appropriate as well since they can be placed outside your tent, saving space in your tent and minimizing noise levels. These units are exceptionally quiet, but it just makes sense to place them outdoors, away from your sleeping area. And the venting is easy … just place the hose under a tent flap or through a window opening.

Heating and Cooling Options: Be sure to choose a model that HEATS as well as COOLS. For those who camp during cold weather the heating function comes in handy as it keeps you warm. You can also dehumidify and doing so is important because low humidity levels hinder the growth of mold and halt condensation and the feeling of dampness that can sour your camping experience.

Portable air conditioners for camping are safe to use and can be a vital addition to your camping trip. They do not limit you to certain climates and can be used when on a fishing expedition, even ice fishing. They also come in handy when going hunting in the woods. Tents are not designed to be fire resistant and it therefore goes without saying that lighting a fire within the tent vicinity is a big no. Portable ac’s are safe to use, meaning you are free to set it up just next to your tent without worry about it being hazardous. Rain is also not an issue because ac’s for camping are designed in a way which protects their electrical fittings … they are made for outdoor use! Another beneficial feature is the ability to power your air conditioner with a small generator. This option is for those adventuresome souls who enjoy camping in remote areas where there is no source of electricity. Another preferred feature of a camping ac is portability … choose a unit that is light weight and has convenient carrying handles built-in.

Camping should be a quiet experience, having peace and tranquillity is one of the reasons people retreat to nature. It’s worth re-stating … a good
camping ac should produce minimal noise levels to help you connect with nature.

Finding the right camping ac unit ensures that you have the ultimate camping experience. And finding the ultimate
camping air conditioner is just a click away at

Camping should be enjoyable and stress free. This can be easily accomplished with a good camping ac that is environmentally friendly, economical to operate and easy to transport.

Portable Air Conditioner for Camping

Complete Comfort for Your Outdoor Adventure

Families, friends and colleagues take up camping for outdoor adventures and to escape the grind of everyday living in the suburbs.  In addition to the allure of the great outdoors … camping enriches bonds and friendships … it’s a great socializing event.   Especially in southern warm-weather states from  Florida  all the way to southern California,  dining out in open terrain, hiking, and sightseeing can be quite challenging.  And ironically, we tend to go camping only when the weather is warm enough to enjoy outdoor activities … and then suffer through the night in a hot stuffy tent or camper.  The portable air conditioner for camping is the ultimate solution.

If it’s too humid or warm, especially after strenuous outdoor activities, chances are you and your family will not have an optimal camping experience, even if you’re surrounded by the raw beauty of, say, the Okefenokee Swamp or the rugged hiking terrains in Yosemite National Park.  The very idea of a portable air conditioner for camping is to ensure an experience free of inconvenience.  ClimateRight brings you this welcome addition to your trip, making certain you have a comfy camping experience.  Most campgrounds have 110V a/c outlets readily available on each campsite … just plug in one of these remarkable units and you are good to go!  If you enjoy more remote locations, these units are light weight and easy to carry with built-in handles and can operate on small portable generators.  There is now a remote control too … so if it gets a bit stuffy in your tent at night just reach for the remote!

With two different sizes to choose from and the safe, environment-friendly characteristics of these units, you can “have your cake and eat it too” … a great camping experience with all the comforts of home!  The portable air conditioner for camping has been designed to be extremely versatile … it COOLS, HEATS, and DE-HUMIDIFIES.  In southern states with tropical climates the air conditioner is spot-on for cooling and dehumidifying your tent or camper. The heating feature finds good use in colder climes, when say, ice-fishing in Michigan or climbing the Appalachian Mountains.

In warm climates, the risk of a fire is quite real.  The ClimateRight portable air conditioner is an amazing product that eliminates that risk. The unit has no bare heat coils that could cause a fire.  MUCH safer than stinky kerosene type heaters that give off fumes and can easily tip causing a horrific fire.  The ClimateRight CR-7000 puts out 7000 BTU and can heat spaces from 350-1200 cubic feet.   The smaller CR-2550 unit caters to smaller spaces up to 350 cubic feet.   

Warm or cool, the portable air conditioner for camping keeps you comfy and lets you relax and rejuvenate so you are always ready to enjoy your next adventure.
