The 7 Best Large Dog Houses
This wiki has been updated 13 times since it was first published in May of 2020. These large houses for dogs are ideal for providing big breeds with a place to shelter from the elements, like rain, wind and the sun, when you let them out into the back yard for a little outdoors time. They come in a wide variety of designs to suit all tastes, including those that look like fancy cabins, igloos, or regular houses, and at prices to meet most budgets.

It can be tough living with a large dog, as they shed more than their lapdog counterparts, and their barks are often deep and very loud. Keeping them outside is a good option, but can be hard if you live in a colder climate or a region that receives a lot of rain. Maybe you already have a dog coat and a dog bed but it's just not enough. These homes for your hounds can help them stay warm and safe outdoors so you don't have to worry about their health.
If you want a wooden house that keeps out moisture, check out the Trixie XXL Kennel or the Arf Frame. The former is one of our biggest options and the latter is built to look like a real A-frame log cabin.
If you want something with all the bells and whistles that is not going to wear out, check out the Ferplast Kennel. It fits together and comes apart easily for assembling and cleaning. It also has vents, and a panel that folds down to easily get inside or to use as a ramp.
Finally, for those that want something that is incredibly easy to setup, the Midwest Eilio is a great choice. It comes flat-packed and all you are required to do is unfold it along its hinges.
