I was watching a Youtube awhile ago about funny videos of Guilty dogs. These are the dogs which acted like they are guilty for what they did (chewing random things). It actually reminds me of my own dog Snoopy who used to bite everything he sees in front of our door including our slippers, rags and more. This made us decide to give him a space and a dog house to prevent him from making any mess.
Honestly it is a very effective technique and it is also interesting to note that according to some studies, dog houses are the most efficient way to train your dogs. It is also helpful to protect your pets from heat and cold. The cat houses , on the other hand , share the same purpose with dog houses.
It is very advantageous indeed for both pet and its owner but of course, it is still your responsibility to provide a regular maintenance to it. You have to repair it if there are damages, clean it on a regular bases and paint it to make it more appealing. How about you guys do you have dog and cat houses in your home too?
