Insulation and ventilation

The Suncast DH350 is a very simple single-walled resin dog house and is without insulation. If you live in a climate with extreme winters or summers then you should look at an insulated dog house instead.

You can easily improve the floor insulation and comfort with a heating pad accessory.

This large sized dog house has vents for air circulation, and the vinyl door flaps are optional and can be either kept open or removed during warmer months.

It has a crowned floor with channel so that any water that gets in can drain out.

Assembly

This large dog house uses an easy-to-assemble system that snaps together without requiring tools. Along the plastic panels are tabs and receptacles that slide and lock the two panels together.

The door flaps are optional and can be installed or removed for seasonal use.

Suncast recommends that if you will be positioning the dog house in a windy area you should stake the house to the ground. This involves using a utility knife to cut through the resin “X” markings near the 4 bottom corners. A stake (not included) is then inserted into each X hole, and a rubber mallet used to drive the stake into the ground.

You can personalize the Name Plate that is located on the front panel of the dog house. There is a provided Label Letter Sheet that you can peel each letter from to form your pet’s name. The letters are then placed along the engraved line on the Name Plate, and clear protective label placed over that.

Accessories

Recommended accessories are a K&H Manufacturing Self-Warming Crate Pad or similar floor padding.

Customer Reviews

Suncast DH350 dog house customers love that the panel pieces simply slide and lock in place. They love that this dog house keeps their dogs warm and dry. Customers are also happy about the nice decorative design.

The only thing that customers don’t like is that the dog house seems to be too lightweight for large very active dogs. The house may also be made from too flimsy a material for big boisterous dogs.

They do love that the dog house is easy to keep clean and that it looks great once assembled.

Price

The price for a large dog house is fairly reasonable however since it is not an insulated dog house for more harsh climates heaters or insulating floor pads are suggested.

You do get the vinyl door flaps for free, so there’s some good savings in that.

Pros:

  • Snap together assembly.
  • Removable roof for cleaning.
  • Crowned floor so water doesn’t seep in.
  • The dog house can be staked to the ground.
  • Comes with vinyl doors.
  • Can be personalized with dog’s name.
  • Price is very affordable

Cons:

  • Too lightweight and flimsy for big very active dogs or strong windy weather.
  • Not insulated so only suitable for warm comfortable climates.
  • Optionally staking it to the ground requires cutting the resin with a craft knife in marked locations and banging stakes into the ground with a rubber mallet
  • The 4 stakes / craft knife / mallet are not included

Our Opinion

The Suncast DH350 dog house is designed nicely with the thought of comfort for large sized dogs. However if your dog is large and quite active you might consider anchoring the dog house to the ground. With nice padding and a heater it can turn into a most comfortable and likeable home for your pet.

This resin dog house looks very cute with its decorative window and roof molding, and personalized name plate.  Its also very practical in the sense that the resin material won’t rot away and is very easy to clean.

Aside from the unique name plate, there’s not much to this house to make it stand out.  There are no sliding windows or insulation material in the walls or extra tough construction.  But I still think this house offers a lot of value for money, and it even includes the door flaps for free (some other dog house manufactures sell doors separately).

If you need an “extra tough” dog house or an insulated dog house then check out our other Dog House Reviews.

If you’re looking for a basic dog house, on a modest budget, the Suncast DH350 dog house is worth your consideration.
