Suncast Corporation has been in the industry since 1984 and it has been making quality hybrid sheets, indoor and outdoor sheds. The Suncast DH350 Dog House is one of their premier products designed for your pet’s safety, security and comfort. But, does this dog house stand up to the expectations from a brand known for delivering functional, stylish and innovative consumer products? Let’s find out.
Let’s start with the build and design of the product. The Suncast DH350 is a spacious and stylish looking dog house that offers a cost effective method to keep your pet warm, dry and safe. It is made from resin that adds a lot of durability to it as the material won’t rot, rust or even dent. There is a vinyl door flap which can be easily removed and re-fitted depending on the climate and season.
The removable roof design also helps to easily clean the dog house. It comes with crowned flooring and a channel around the edges so that any liquid can be drained out to keep the dog house dry.
We really admire the cute name plate and letter stickers that come with the product. You can peel and paste these letters on the plate to easily customize it with your dog’s name. Although this is not really a functional feature, it adds a lot of value to the product. It gives a feel-good factor to the owners who feel happy about giving their beloved pet a home with its name on it.
The DH350 is designed to be suitable for dogs that are up to 100 pounds in weight. So, this can be a good home for Golden Retrievers, Doberman Pinchers, Boxers, Alaskan Malamutes, Labrador Retrievers, and Irish Setters.
Besides the sturdy and durable construction, the dog house comes with a lot of vents for easy air circulation to keep your furry friend comfortable. This dog house can be used both indoors and outdoors as it stays firmly staked to the ground.
This dog house is a simple single-walled resin dog house that does not include insulation of any type. So, if you live in a place that has extreme summers or winters then you will need to insulate the house or buy an insulated house instead.
The floor insulation can be improved by adding a heating pad accessory and the walls can also be insulated with foam. In the warmer months you may remove the vinyl door flaps to allow easy air circulation.
The DH350 is a large sized dog house that is easy-to-assemble without any tools. The plastic panels are composed of tabs and receptacles which slide and lock conveniently for quick set up wherever you want to place the dog house. If you position the dog house indoors, you don’t need to stake it to the ground but if you place it outdoors, especially in a windy area, it must be firmly fixed to the ground.
