Easy snap together assemble, no tools required.
I live in Nevada where it gets
hot, really really hot and with plastic items you can often get sun rot,
so in choosing a dog house plastic is not always the best option. This
Dog house has made it through one very hot summer and one very cold
winter and held up very well. It is not the deluxe super dog house you
will get if you find one made of wood or have it built but for a quick
easy to set up and economical dog house this does well. We did put
insulation on the floor of it during the winter to help keep the chill
of the ground from seeping in but we have also done that with our sturdy
wood dog house as well. I was able to assemble this by myself thought
there where a couple moments where I felt I was playing twister to fit
all the pieces together still even with that it only took about 20
minutes and it was dog ready.
Our dog is a large sized Chocolate Lab and he has plenty of room, in fact when his friend visits (she is a golden) they just bunk down together if it is chilly out and they have enough room.
I will say that I only expect this dog house to last 2-3 years in our weather conditions, but for the price that is a lot of use. Also we can take it apart so if we need to travel we can take it with us and put it back together at our destination (we have done this when we went to visit my dad's ranch for a few weeks over the summer)
UPDATE: I bumped this up from 4 stars to 5 stars after a major storm ripped through our area. Our sturdy more expensive dog house managed to lose it's roof. Though this one traveled a few feet it was perfectly intact and our dog was sheltering from the storm just fine.

We had this dog house Very easy to assemble and really cute We live in Florida
By the end of the first year it looked like roof color was fading and starting to " melt " Material getting extremely soft to the touch Second year it went out in the trash the hot sun had done a number on it Our other dog houses are Pet Zone which I would really recommend Really tough material, colors don't fade This would make a cute " indoor dog house " I wouldn't even trust it to the elements if we still lived in NY with freezing, snow, etc
