Now, before we begin let’s clarify that we are not referring to the dog house igloos that we typically see in Alaska or Antarctica somewhere (just in case you were wondering why anyone would want to put their pup in a cold shelter).
Similar to doghouses, dog igloos can provide an optimal level of comfort and warmth for your favorite pooch; dog igloos come in a variety of styles and sizes (small, medium, large and extra-large), not to mention various price ranges.
Selecting the best dog igloo for your puppy may not always be a simple decision so to assist you; we are going to take a look at some of the best small and large dog igloos of 2021 so far. Happy reading!

The deluxe Mat Cave igloo dog houses for small dogs is less than $40.00 on Amazon and is perfect not only for dogs/puppies but ideal for cats/kittens as well.
The Warm Mat Cave is a comfortable, private, not to mention, warm place for your favorite furry animal to sleep and relax during the day and night.
The Mat Cave is incredibly comfortable so once your pet goes in they may or may not come out! The plush cave has a removable cover that can be washed just in case any accidents happen.
The DK Cozy is a bit more expensive than option #1, costing about $45.00 on Amazon; there are three sizes available- small, medium, and large, depending on the size of your pet.
The DK Cozy dog/cat bed is a warm and cozy (as its name indicates) safe house that will surely be a haven for either your dog, or your cat; it comes with a thick and soft inner cushion for most convenience, or as an open style sofa, which can be adjusted by simply pushing down the roof, depending on your pet’s preference, your pets will think this bed is just flawless!
The cushion that comes with the DK Cozy is made from durable oxford surface fabric that is extra soft, and the inside is made of firm foam, to prevent scratches from your puppies or kittens.
The K & H Lectro heated bed is a little under $60.00 on Amazon and is thermostatically controlled to heat to your pet’s normal body temperature when your pet lies on the bed; the K & H only uses 60 watts so no need to worry about the mattress getting too hot for your pet.
The K & H can provide your dog’s igloo house with an additional level of both comfort and warmth, with the bed being in a half-round shape that covers half of the floor surface. The cover that comes on the bed is also removable and machine washable for convenience. An additional benefit of the K & H is that it comes with a limited one-year warranty for an added peace of mind.
Yes, you did read correctly! although a small dog could fit into the petmate igloo pet house, it is a bit more ideal for cats and kittens. Nonetheless, it is a great purchase!
The Petmate will run you a little under $90.00 on Amazon and includes a carpeted floor for both warmth and comfort, to encourage scratching for healthier claws.
There is also a rain diverting hood that directs rain runoff away from entry and will not get the inside of the igloo wet.
In addition to this, the non-porous surface discourages fleas or other pests from nesting. There is some minor assemblage required, but nothing that will take longer than a few minutes. The Petmate can be cleaned by just wiping with a soft cloth and mild cleaner.
The Petmate Indigo is ideal for pets 25-50 pounds and will cost you $79.99 on Amazon (please note that this is a medium-sized igloo dog house, the larger ones will cost you more, at least over $100). The Petmate Indigo is perfect for either summer or winter use and is made from a heavy-duty material that can withstand the elements (within reason of course). It is also incredibly easy to set-up, even for those who have never used an igloo before, and can offer your furry loved one extreme comfort and protection.
The Best Igloo Dog Houses – FAQs
Are all of the cushions removable for washing?
Typically, yes – manufacturers understand that accidents can undoubtedly happen with animals, so they make it a point to make washing as easy as possible
What temperatures are these regulated for?
The answer to this depends on the particular brand of igloo since not all of them are necessarily made to withstand outside conditions. If you do decide to purchase one that can be used outside, use your best judgment. Naturally, you would not want your pet out if it is -10 degrees below freezing or 105 degrees.
All in all, option #2 seems to be the best bet out of the five that were reviewed. It is affordable and can be used for both dogs and cats. If you are simply looking for a bed, however, (and do not mind spending the extra money) option #3 would be an ideal choice.
