    21×21 ,, would be a good size.. Duke can duck his head.. U don’t want it any bigger than necessary.. it will only let in more cold..

    all u have to do.. is get some clean vinyl from home depot.. or use a floor mat from Ur car.. and nail it up on the top of the roof.. let it hang down..

    it will close .. once they go in or.. they can open it them self if they want out..
    good luck..

    you should make it about 30 in long, cus keep in mind dogs run, & when their running to the dog house, they need room to jump in it

    Just an FYI…dogs should NOT be left out when it’s too cold outside.
    At least 25"-28". & have it facing toward a side of the house/garage so the wind can’t blow in.

    It would be really cool if you created two house doors for them.

    Edit: I would allow a two to three inch clearing for each dogs door.

    about 25 to 30 inches because you should want them to both come in and out.

    Make it 25 inches, any dogs that I have seen that want to go in a doghouse and the door happens to be small, just crawl in like nothing. 25 inches won’t be too small for your bigger dog.
    You shouldn’t make 2 doors, that will just cause drafts in the house and make it cold. Which will defeat the purpose of a doghouse. Its better to make two doghouses for two dogs. Its similar to having separate crates in the house while crate training. One dog needs it’s own personal little space to relax.
