The Houndhouse dog kennel is made of a waterproof marine grade canvas that expands and contracts with the weather. It is breathable in the summer heat and in the cool of winter will contract to provide protection for your pet from the elements.
Available in four sizes:
|Length||103 cm||85 cm||63 cm||54 cm|
|Width||82 cm||72 cm||57 cm||46 cm|
|Height||91 cm||75 cm||63 cm||50 cm|
Tips for Hot Weather
The HoundHouse kennel is made from a canvas material that will expand during hot weather. This allows the breeze to flow through the fibre and cool the kennel down. The kennel sits off the ground, further helping the circulation of air. However, you can cool the kennel down further by making sure it is in a shaded area. Extreme heat can be uncomfortable for most dogs and even dangerous. During these days, you can spray the kennel with a hose to decrease the inside temperature by up to 15%. Furthermore, a soaked hessian bag sitting over the top of the kennel will help to decrease the temperature for up to two hours. Hessian bags can be sourced from your local greengrocer.
Tips for Cold Weather
Not only will the kennel’s canvas fibre expand during hot weather, it will shrink during cold weather. This will result in the warm air from your dog being trapped inside the kennel. The HoundHouse heat mat has been specifically designed to fit inside each of the four sized kennels. The heat mat has a heating element in one corner, allowing your dog to regulate their own temperature. During cold, windy weather, the clear plastic flaps can be placed at the door of the kennel, stopping the wind before it reaches your pet.
The HoundHouse is one of the only kennels available that can be enjoyed by your pet year-round. Because of its unique materials and design, the kennel will shelter your pet from the hard Australian elements. The HoundHouse kennel can be assembled in just a matter of minutes and in the same amount of time, the kennel can be dismantled and packed into its included storage bag. The kennel is extremely light, even the extra large dog kennel, meaning it can be easily moved in and out of the weather.
Tips for Hygiene
Like all dog kennels, the HoundHouse will fill up with your dog’s fur, becoming oily and smelly. Unlike other dog kennels, the HoundHouse can be easily hosed out, removing all unwanted hair and bacterial from the kennel. With just minimal effort, your dog will have a fresh house to enjoy. By cleaning out your pet’s fur, you are reducing the places that fleas can hide and breed.
