Suncast DH250 DoorsThis classic style dog house has the doorway centered in the middle of the house which looks fine, but is not as insulating as an off-center doorway.

Customer Reviews

Suncast DH250 Dog House customers rave about the easy, snap together dog house construction. They like that the dog house is of good size and weight and has a nice design. The plastic door covers keep out the cold, hot weather and rain. They also love that the construction of this dog house doesn’t take more than around 20 minutes. The only complaint they seem to have is that the dog house could have more insulation and the floor could be thicker. When constructing the tabs must be tightly put together otherwise there are cracks left open in the dog house.

Our Opinion

Suncast DH250 Dog House

Overall the Suncast DH250 Dog House is a good quality, simple, plastic dog house that could serve your dog for many years to come. As long as you live in a moderate climate and you do not need an insulated dog house such as the ASL Solutions Dog Palace or the Petmate Indigo Igloo.

It has a nice style and dogs seem to take to it right away. There should be no problems once it is assembled and you can stake it to the ground if you prefer. Overall this dog house is worth the purchase.
