Today! Where can you find the best dog houses? First, you'll need to have an idea of what kind of dog house is right for your favorite four-legged friend. Are you looking for something to use inside the house, something similar to a kennel but maybe with a little more style to match your decor? Or does Spot like to spend most of the day outside, so he needs a place to get some shade, take a nap, or get out of the rain for a while? The range of dog houses on the market is truly as varied and unique as the dogs themselves!

Whether you're just looking for something inexpensive and plastic to tuck in a corner of the yard or dreaming of a mini dog mansion to rival your own home, you're not likely to find it at the average neighborhood pet supply store. Brick-and-mortar retailers have limited shelf space for these larger items, and smaller pet boutiques may only have one or two best-sellers or specialty dog houses in stock at any given time.

Home Depot

HOME DEPOT

Visit Site

Cost:

From $49 to $400

Selection:

60+ models to choose from

Home Depot has everything you need for your house - including a smaller-scale home for your pet! You already know that this home improvement retailer has products ranging from light bulbs to landscaping equipment, but it may surprise you to learn that they offer an impressive selection of dog houses as well.

Shopping for your pet's new living arrangements is a breeze on the Home Depot website. You can use the categories across the top to go directly to a particular size or price range, or use the filters on the left side to narrow down the available products by brand, price range, or "Get It Fast" (to see only those options that are in stock at retail locations near you). There's also a helpful Compare button at the top of each image, so as you browse you can select the dog houses you like and see them side-by-side.

Looking for something economical? Home Depot offers almost a dozen options that are under $100. In this price range, the most popular model is the Suncast H Dog House. Made of resin, this style looks almost like one of those kids' playhouses you might see in a typical suburban backyard. At $67.09, it's easy to see why this dog house is one of the most often purchased; Home Depot customers gave it an average 4 out of 5 stars. You'll also find some cute, sturdy wood dog houses in the $100-or-less category.

On the luxe end of the spectrum, you'll find a cedar cabin, a sturdy igloo style, and several wood models with fun detailing like painted window frames and bone-shaped decorations on the sides. Most of the higher-end dog houses are still under $250. No matter which one you choose, you'll get free shipping - or you can choose to pick up in-store with free "ship to store" on some models.

Home Depot welcomes returns within 90 days of purchase, either by mail or at any one of their retail locations. However, unlike some of the stores in our evaluation, Home Depot requires the merchandise to be new and unopened. That means that if the canine cabin isn't to Rover's liking, you probably won't be able to take it back.

Home Depot is a good choice if you'd like a wide range of dog houses to consider, as well as the flexibility of purchasing online and picking up (and/or returning) in-store. Their prices are comparable to their competition, and free delivery on all of the styles they carry is a plus. Just keep in mind that their return policy isn't as broad as some of the pet supply stores in our review.

Walmart

WALMART

Cost:

From $20 to over $2,000

Selection:

Several dozen styles

Walmart is often a customer's go-to store for, well, everything! It should come as no surprise that the retailer also offers a wide variety of pet products, including dog houses.

How does Walmart compare with other retailers you might be considering? At first glance, you might feel overwhelmed, seeing that there are more than 600 options in the online store. But, this being Walmart, you'll need to expect lots of results in the "Dog House" category that don't have anything to do with giving your furry friend a place to take a nap. (Our personal favorite was the dog house cookie cutter.) In fact, when we clicked on "Large Dog Houses", "Insulated Dog Houses", and the other subcategories shown, there were usually only a dozen options to consider.

That's why your best bet is probably to click on the type of dog house you need, since there's no way to filter the results by your pet's size. (And clicking on "All Dog Houses" takes you back to that results list with items like the cookie cutter, dog-themed magnets, and even miniatures for your doll house!).

Walmart has a better selection than some of the specialty pet stores we evaluated, but their prices weren't very competitive. For example, we found the ECOFLEX Lodge Style Dog House (XL) on the Walmart site for $216.08 but on rival sites for under $200. Add the $34.03 delivery fee to Walmart's price, compared with the competitor's free shipping, and you'll see what we mean.

Another factor to consider when shopping online at Walmart is that many of their items, including dog houses, are sold by third-party retailers. That affects your ability to make returns and get refunds. So, for every dog house you're considering, you'll want to be sure you know if it'll be fulfilled by Walmart or by a partner business, and read the fine print on the return policy.

In general, we like that Walmart carries a broader range of dog houses than some of the stores we reviewed, and that shoppers might have the ability for easy in-store returns - but only when they buy one of the styles that is specifically fulfilled by Walmart itself. On the other hand, Walmart isn't the easiest online retailer to navigate, and you'll have to wade through lots of unrelated products just to get to the dog houses that might work for your four-legged friend.

Continued from above

Fortunately, no matter what your style or price range, you'll find the world's best selection by shopping for your dog house online. There's no need to settle for something in person that doesn't meet your expectations when today's online pet stores - even the bigger names in home improvement and pet supplies - carry every type of dog house known to man (and dog).

As you shop around for the right dog house for your canine companion, it might be easy to feel overwhelmed by the number of stores and options available today. To help simplify the process and find your pet's perfect hangout spot, keep these criteria in mind:

  • Selection: How many styles of dog house can you find when shopping on a particular retailer's store? Are all of the items in stock? Will you have a variety to choose from within your price range and desired features?
  • Price. Are the prices offered competitive with other retailers'? Does the store offer free shipping, discounts, or anything else to make your dog house purchase more affordable?
  • Reputation. How well does the company keep its customers happy? Does the retailer have a solid return policy and/or satisfaction guarantee? What do other shoppers have to say about their experience when buying from this store?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best dog houses on the market today. We hope this information helps you find the perfect dog house for keeping your Fido safe and happy for a long time!
