A household pet needs only a padded box or basket. Put the box in an out-of-the-way corner of a room. As tempting as it might be to allow your puppy to sleep on your bed, remember that it will be an adult dog expecting the same privilege. The habits a dog forms as a puppy will last a lifetime. A dog kept outdoors, requires a tight, dry house to protect it from wind and weather. The house should be big enough for your pet to stand up and turn around easily, but not so large that its body heat will not keep it warm. Loose bedding and a cloth flat over the door can help keep your dog snug in cold weather. The house should be built for easy cleaning and treating with insecticides to control parasites.
