"We love the rugged construction and safe, consistent heat with this unit and would recommend it to anyone who needs to climate control their dogs outdoor resting areas."
By: Rhonda Haywood From MO
Family pet. We built a 3 x 6 foot dog insulated house inside our shed for our Bloodhound Georgia to take shelter in during cold or inclement weather while we are at work. We thought that the Hound Heat-N-Breeze would be the perfect fit for our cold winters and hot summers to keep the house comfortable year round. We have crawled through the dog door a number of times to check the inside temperature of the house and have found it consistently at 45-55 degrees (depending upon the outside temperature) with the heater on medium. We love the rugged construction and safe, consistent heat with this unit and would recommend it to anyone who needs to climate control their dogs outdoor resting areas.

Customer Review #24126
By: Adam Bailey From ME
Hunts. These work well....I purchased 2 last year and ordered a third this year for my dog houses. Only thing I would recommend is to buy a real 5 inch hole saw for the install. One is included, but it's absolute crap. The one that came in the heater I purchased this year didn't even have an arbor so it couldn't be used. The heater itself works great. I did modify the switch/thermostat doors on mine. I removed the little spring clips and found bolts that would thread into the metal housing after my beagle pup got too curious. I'm still not sure if she ate the clip or not, but it's been a year and she's still OK, so I guess if she did it didn't hurt her too bad. I would much rather have to remove a bolt to flip from hot/cold or to set the thermostat than have puppies chewing on switches and metal clips.

Family pet. Works really well so far. Keeps my puppies nice and toasty in the 4'x4' kennel we built. Keeps it about 65-70 degrees when it's set around medium all the time with temps dropping into the low 20's. Great product!

"The heater works fine"
By: Henry Dacus From TN
Family pet. The heater works fine. But stays very hot above the unit, and this radiates down of course. It would be helpful to recommend a possible reflective insulation on top of the inside of the dog house. I think the performance would be stronger and the animal warmer.

FOR HEAT: Push the heat toggle switch down. Make sure the vent toggle switch is up. Turn the thermostat clockwise. Most customers set their dial just past "MED". This setting will keep a well built insulated house that has a door approximately 55 degrees F. Turning it a little further clockwise will make the house warmer. Mount the heat shield approximately 1 inch above the unit. (the black rounded piece of metal)
FOR VENT: Push the vent toggle switch down, making sure the heat toggle switch is up. Turn the thermostat counterclockwise until the fan comes on and adjust accordingly.
