Be sure to check for the following potential hazards as you look over your dog’s home: A modern looking dog house inside an apartment.

1) Loose nails – Examine every part of your pooch’s home to ensure that no stray nails are sticking out. Such loose parts pose an injury hazard to your dog, according to Modern Dog Magazine.

2) Make sure it protects against the elements! As noted by Modern Dog Magazine, you can keep your pooch warm in cooler nights by properly insulating and waterproofing their home. On the opposite end of the spectrum, keep your dog's residence under the shade as temperatures rise.

3) A clean home is a happy home! While it’s of course important to keep the area surrounding your dog’s home clear of dirt, it’s also necessary to clean the inside of the dog house. Some dog houses may pose a challenge when it comes to cleaning the inside, so make sure you purchase or build a home that can be easily accessible, according to the Examiner.
