installing radiant heating in your dog's kennel

Most pet owners will admit that their pet has become a treasured member of their family and they will to go to extreme lengths to improve their pet’s life.

One way to improve your family pets environment is to install WarmlyYours radiant floor heating in your dog’s kennel. This is recommended for people who live in cold frigid areas during the winter.

Installing radiant heating in a dog kennel can be beneficial for many dogs in different living situations. For example, sick dogs recovering from illnesses, whelping, and older dogs simply because their metabolism and general fitness isn’t what it used to be. Another reason to install radiant heating in a dog kennel is for dogs with short hair that doesn’t keep them as warm, such as Dobermans, Greyhounds, and German shorthaired Pointers.

Using WarmlyYours radiant heating in a dog kennel is safe, energy efficient, and will not harm the animal. If a dog is used to being inside and is abruptly placed outside, having a heated doghouse will make the transition much easier and safer for the health of the dog.

For proper cold weather construction:

The doghouse needs to be insulated and elevated above the ground. Wood floors are recommended although there is an excellent radiant solution for concrete too with our Slab Heating cable and mat product. Also, there needs to be some kind of a doorway and ideally it should have an interior windbreak wall so the dog is protected from the outside elements.

WarmlyYours TempZone™ MiniMat would be a perfect choice to install in a dog kennel. This easy to use product was specifically designed for heating smaller areas at an affordable cost. With proven TempZone™ technology, MiniMats are available in a standard 120-volt system. The maximum size per mat is 30 square feet and ideal for providing spot heating in a dog kennel.

During those cold autumn and winter months your dog will appreciate you going the extra length to enhance it’s living space whether indoors or out. And you will have peace of mind in knowing that they are warm and cozy while in their kennel.

Hi guys. Can you tell me what the max temp should be for my kennel slab heat? I’m worried that 70•F might be too hot for my doggos paws.

WarmlyYours Responds...

Hey there! Most people will actually set the floor temperature (here's a video about setting your WarmlyYours thermostat to use "Floor" temperature: https://www.warmlyyours.com/video-media/switching-modes) their systems to about 82°F so 70°F shouldn't be an issue at all. Hope that helps you (and your furry friend)!
