Die Hunde wohnen in (den) Hundehütten.


Explanation:
der Hund > die Hunde
wohnt > wohnen

You didn't say whether the dog houses should be plural as well (as in the above answer). I put "den" in brackets because for a general (!) statement you don't need an article. "dog house" is "Hundehütte" rather than "Hundehaus". If they all live in the same dog house, it is "in der Hundehütte".
