Dog Houses: Large to Small Dog Houses & Igloos | Petco
Igloo dog houses can be pricey - especially the larger sizes. However, if it fits all of your dog's current needs, its a great investment.
Other events offered by PDFA are dependent upon the interests of club members and their support in organizing it. At this time, rally, barn hunts, lure coursing and herding events are being supported. Check out our page or like our for what is coming up.
PDFA has, in conjunction with Five Flags Dog Training Club, stepped forward to fight against unfair legislation that included breeding bans and mandatory neutering. We also led the fight against privatization of our local animal shelter. We were successful on both counts, but the more voices that are heard by your legislators, the more effective we can be. We have proven that our voice counts and we call on all responsible pet owners to help us spread the word.
We try to help the area shelters and have donated items such as food, large dog igloos for uncovered runs and stainless steel bowls to the Escambia Animal Shelter. PDFA and Five Flags Training Club donated oxygen masks for large and small animals to all of the Escambia County Fire Stations. We have held Bark in the Park events to raise money and public attention to a drive for a large dog park that could be used for organized dog events, since parks in Escambia do not allow dogs. Promised 7 acres in the original plans for the Escambia County Equestrian Center, and that the paddocks at the Brosnaham Park would remain for open use until that happened, the clubs discontinued the drive for petitions. Meanwhile the city built far more parks than the county has done and we continue to await a fair decision for those dog owners in Escambia County to play with their dogs in a manner that allows for off lead and planned events in a safe environment. The Equestrian Center has worked with the dog clubs to meet the needs of our AKC events where they can, but we continue to work toward a large enclosed area for events such as lure coursing and amenities that will allow the Center to appeal to larger events in controlled environments. These events bring visitors and money into the community as well as allow for healthy and bonding experiences for Escambia canine pets.
If the dog igloo is too large it won't offer enough protection from cold temperatures. If it is too small, your dog won't be able to comfortably walk through the front doorway to get into the igloo section of the dog house.

I’m not sure what kind of setup your neighbors' dog has, but letting them know what the pet needs to stay warm is a great start, as is your offer of an Igloo-style shelter. For a dog to get the most out of a shelter, it needs to be the proper size (not much bigger than the dog, so the animal’s body heat isn’t wasted but large enough that the dog can turn around inside it comfortably) and set up so it’s out of the wind and not in a place likley to flood. It needs insulation inside as well, and that doesn’t need to be expensive: Hay has long been used to help animals stay warm.Some buyers complaint of this igloo house opening not being wide enough for some larger breeds. Sizing isn’t always obvious (many say that medium sized dogs like collies will definitely need the large size, not the medium).
