Hell I have found nice insulated dogloos that cost 100 on craigslist for 20 just a thought

I have never figured out why they ever designed those dang things the way they did. I have gotten up in the middle of the night to check on dogs when it was 40 below at 3 or 4 in the morning. I have always without fail been greeted with the same sight. The dog has straw completely covering the door.

The problem I see with igloo dog house are the door opening raises nearly completely to the very top of the house.

Now, my question is how can a dog build up heat and maintain it in such a shelter?

Now, to answer the original posters question. Yes, I do use plastic barrels, but I should qualify that. I have the barrels inside the dog building up on 2x8s. I also have K9 Condo metal doors on the building to reduce winds inside.

The important thing to remember with dogs out side is they need to have draft free, plenty of good bedding, and the smaller the compartment the better off they will be. They need to be able to heat up and maintain warmth in their dog house.
