    Welcome

    In general, in refers to inside, on refers to a surface, and at refers to a location, a point, a spot.

    EX: The dog is in its house. (inside its house)
    EX: The dog is on its house. (on top of its house)
    EX: The dog is at its house. (in the location)

    All the best, :D
