"They get covered with weeds and mud. Just spray off, and they look brand new. Good product."
By: Logan Tompkins
Hunts. Family pet. I purchased the rough tuff dog kennel with the Mud river insulated covers. Love them. They stay in the back of the gator, and I have my collars and treats all stored safely. Dogs seem happy. They get covered with weeds and mud. Just spray off, and they look brand new. Good product.

Hunts. Family pet. Great cover. Fits my intermediate Ruff Tough kennel like a glove. Appears to be very strong and well made. I like the cover handles and tie down rings as well as the rain deflector style side flaps. It also shipped and arrived very quickly. Thanks Steve.

"Very well made."
By: John C From SC
Boykin Spaniels. Hunts. Very well made. Attention to detail in design….an example would be when you open the side ventilation flaps and fold the covers up, it forms a rain drip edge to keep rain from running into the kennel also the tie down rings and handles on top. Great product.

"I have been very impressed with the quality and design of this product."
By: Jack Tracy II From OK
GSP. Hunts. I have been very impressed with the quaility and design of this product. I have two and I use them all winter to keep my dogs in out of the cold in the garage at night. I also use them on my hunting trips and they seem to provide adequate space and compartments to transport necessary items for hunting. Them have held up well so far and the dogs seem plenty warm when transporting them in the back of a pickup with temps in the teens. When we get to our destination and I let them out their bodies feel warm to the touch and they aren't shivering.

"This is probably the finest kennel cover I have ever used."
By: Nathan Baxter From OH
Labrador retriever. Hunts. Competes. This is probably the finest kennel cover I have ever used. The quality of construction seems very strong. My only complaint is the pockets. No one I know really uses those pockets. Seems to me that they could produce one with fewer or no pockets and sell it for $30 less.

"I love the durability and quality."
By: Mark Johnston From WI
Hunts. I love the durability and quality. I wish there were zippers on the side windows, so it was easier to make ventilation adjustments on trips. I have had one for 4 years, and it still looks like new.

The Mud River Dixie Insulated Kennel Cover has many features that will allow your dog protection from the cold and rain making your standard dog crate a warm, dry and comfortable place for your hunting dog. It will keep the inside of your crate 20-40 degrees warmer than the outside air temperature (depending on size of dog, working or resting dog, windows on or off, door up or down).
Features on the Dixie Dog Crate Cover include MicroLite3
insulation, a 2-ply infused 1200D Poly industrial grade bottom that is built to withstand years of abrasion, water-resistant coating for protection in foul and unpredictable weather, rubber handles on the top making it easy to move and carry, and 4 side D-Rings for securing the kennel in the back of your truck.
Rubber mesh over each window and velcro loops on the front allow you to open up the sides and roll up the front flap for proper air flow when the weather warms up. The Mud River Kennel cover also has multiple side, rear, and top pockets and storage areas that help you keep all your dog training gear safe and secure. Comes with a 1-year manufacturer's warranty.
Never close all the kennel cover doors and windows at the same time -- depending on your dog and various external factors, temperatures can increase more quickly than expected.
Don't carry more than one dog per kennel.
Never leave your dog unattended.
Use caution when pulling trailers that may redirect exhaust into the back of your pick up or topper when using a Kennel Cover.
Mud River Kennel Covers do not provide adequate protection for your canine in the event of an accident.
Hose off. Spot treat with mild liquid detergent when needed. Line Dry.
The Dixie Cover is NOT waterproof but the material is naturally water resistant. If the cover were 100% waterproof you would run the risk of suffocating your dog inside the crate.
About how much warmer will the Dixie cover keep the inside of your crate?
Typically, the Dixie Cover will keep the inside of your crate anywhere between 25-40 degrees warmer than the outside air temperature, depending on a few factors:
If your dog has been in the field working (the temp inside will be higher than normal)
If the windows are attached
If the door is rolled up and secured or down
From the Manufacturer:
Innovation and Animal protection is a driving force at Mud River. Our pursuit of superior product performance will only enhance the Human and Animal relationship. Keeping with our quest for your dog's well being, we have loaded our kennel covers with a wealth of health benefits.
Chosen material is a 2 ply infused 1200D that has a Water-Resistant coating for protection in foul and unpredictable weather. Worry not -- when the mercury drops the microlite 3 insulation will supply thermal bliss.
You will also find that we have placed a tough and tumble rubber mesh over each window to ensure air is dispensed properly and to secure fit while running 70. While the need for gear is essential you will find stash pockets in all the right locations. The industrial grade bottom was not an after thought, built to withstand years of abrasion.
