Why won’t my dog go into his doghouse?

How do I get my dog to go into his dog house?
Place treats around the doghouse. Allow your dog to take them and praise him for being near his dog house. Throw a treat in the dog house for your dog to get. When your dog goes to retrieve it, praise him, talk excited and give him lots of praise and attention.

Steps to teaching your dog to come
- Begin in the house, in the same room, just a few feet away as your dog. Call him to you (“Rufus, come ”).

- Gradually give the dog more freedom and more space.
Can inside dogs become outside dogs?
It is possible to bring your outdoor pet indoors, but it may take some time to get him used to being in the house; making an indoor pet into an outdoor pet is almost always a bad idea. Trying to make an indoor dog into an outdoor pet is a form of abandonment and cruelty, and your pet’s health will certainly suffer.”
How do I get my dog to stop raining in the house?
For relatively average climates (at least when it comes to wetness), probably the best thing to do is keep a tarp or plastic sheet close by. When it starts raining or snowing, secure the tarp up around the doghouse. This way the rain will just slide off of the tarp.
Is Hay good to keep dogs warm?
Straw will reflect body heat back to a animal and actually repels moisture. Straw is tough, thick, dry leftover stalks from crops. It’s lightweight and golden in color. Straw has a hollow center which makes for great insulation (just like double pane windows).
What type of bedding is best for dogs?
A better choice is pine or cedar shavings. Shavings of this kind are soft, comfortable to lie on, absorb moisture and help control odor. Wood shavings are also environmentally safe, easy to dispose of and naturally repel fleas and other insects. Never use wood shavings of any kind with pregnant dogs or newborn puppies.
Is Straw warm for dogs?
Most hays and similar materials also rot quickly when they get wet and they don’t offer any of the benefits wood shavings and other beddings do. However, hay and straw can be used for adding insulation outside and underneath of a dog’s house – we just don’t recommend putting any inside.
