HoundHouse Original Canvas Green

The HoundHouse Original Canvas Dog Kennel is a lightweight and sturdy dog house suitable for use all year round. The HoundHouse hood is made of waterproof, marine-quality canvas that expands in the summer and contracts in the winter providing your dog with natural ventilation and insulation throughout all seasons.

The base of the HoundHouse is raised off the ground for comfort and is made of a strong mesh that stretches but doesn't sag over time. The thick mesh prevents fleas from laying their eggs in the weaves. With your HoundHouse order, you will receive a cosy, scratch resistant, tie-in mat for your dog's convenience. This mat features a soft foam core providing puppies, adult dogs, senior dogs and dogs with joint/muscle issues a comfortable place to rest.

The frame of the HoundHouse is made of steel and is lightweight. If you're travelling/camping with your furry friend, disassembling and reassembling the HoundHouse is simple! To see how to set up the HoundHouse watch the video below - assembly starts at 1:27.


How to measure your dog for the HoundHouse Kennel

The HoundHouse is available in 4 sizes - Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large.

Measure your dog from head to tail when they are lying down. The length of your dog should be smaller than your intended kennel size. If your dog's measurement is in the middle of two recommended HoundHouse sizes, choose the larger kennel as it will be more comfortable for your dog. If you are still unsure, feel free to give us a call at 1300 483 179.

XL HoundHouse Dog Kennel

Took my Rottweiler a couple of months to go in to his kennel we had to stick his old bed in there to get him to go in. My boy suffers from anxiety so he doesn't adapt well to change. He's still unsure at times but he's slowly getting used to it. Me & his Dad love the diversity of the kennel its easy to assemble & dismantle which is perfect for travelling, easy to clean, easy to move around & warm in winter & cool in summer. We would definitely recommend this kennel.

Great kennel and portable too

I purchased a Houndhouse for my GSD (50kgs), 5 years ago and it is still in great condition. It is easily folded and moved, easy to clean, warm in winter and cool in summer. I'd never go back to a wooden, metal or plastic kennel.

Best ever kennel

I have had a Houndhouse (extra large) for 5 years for my large 52kg German shepherd. He loves his kennel. It is off the ground, easy to clean and wonderful when I need him to stay at my sons' house because it is easily portable. Sturdy and long-lasting.
