Dog Won't Use New Dog House

My female German Shepherd just had her first set of puppies. Her dog house got really small so we got her a bigger one. But now she refuses to go in to the new dog house so the puppies won't go in there either. The weather has been cold so I really worried about the puppies being out in the cold.

Is it big enough for you to get in it? If so, get in it and call her in and see if she will come in that way. If she does, reward her with a treat.

My dog will not use his dog house he will stay in front of it. So we gave him all his meals and treats inside the house and he will go inside eat and came out right away. Until about a month later I looked outside and saw he was inside his house. We were so happy.
Don't give up keep doing it everyday until he feels safe to stay inside.

Can you put something of hers that is sentimental to her? Does she have a favorite toy? Or does she need something in particular to sleep at night?
