"His body heat keeps him toasty in his crate. And the fit and quality is by far top notch."
By: Vince Koczara From MI
Hunts. Hunting mid Oct. thou Nov in Michigan can get cold, and my dog is an inside dog, so he doesn't build up that winter coat like an outside dog would. Even though I have a cap on my truck, he would still shake from hunting spot to hunting spot. This cover fixed that, as his body heat keeps him toasty in his crate. And the fit and quality is by far top notch.

"Pockets galore and still finding more. Good insulative value. Good ventilation, and overall an excellent product."
By: T. Scoville From OR
Hunts. Family pet. Fits well on my Large Vari Kennel that I've had for over 15 plus years. Pockets galore and still finding more. Good insulative value. I like the pair of lifting handles, which does make it easier to move the crate. Good ventilation, and overall an excellent product. Long overdue on my wish list.

Hunts. Family pet. Competes. Put it on an older airline crate. Used your crate pad and a softer pad, added 2 small blankets and took Evel to Vermont. All week while we skied, he spent hours in the car in weather that was cold for Vermont (-5 to +20 degrees) and was fine. Great cover!

"It is extremely well insulated, very durable and designed well."
By: Gerald Clark From OH
American Bulldog. Family pet. I searched and searched for a kennel cover before I found the Mud River. I could not have asked for anything better. It is extremely well insulated, very durable and designed well. I really enjoy the strap down loops built in as well as the numerous storage pockets. I highly recommend this cover. My bulldog is grateful as well.

"The cover is far more durable and insulating than my cheap one."
By: Eric Christianson
One of my best friends has one of these covers and i bet my dog envies his dog. The cover is far more durable and insulating than my cheap one. The best points of it beside the better construction, is the handles and config options. I am saving for this cover !

Customer Review #26430
By: Dustin Qualley From TX
Hunts. Snug fit on a crate I picked up at Walmart. D-rings make it easy to tie down and side pockets are great for storing supplies. I recommend.

GSP. Hunts. Family pet. Excellent product. Kept dog warm in single digit temps during ND hunt. Only issue was liner on bottom started to tear after pulling on truck bed and waterproof liner on inside so stuff stored in pockets will get soaked in rain. Otherwise constructed well. I make it an effort to only buy Mud River because of quality of material and stitching.

No risk to you. Your 100% Satisfaction is Guaranteed with our 30 Day "No Questions" Money Back Guarantee. Hassle-free returns & exchanges.
Please measure your kennel carefully before ordering. Select the size that matches your kennel or is slightly larger than your kennel. NOTE: We find that the Large Extended is a better fit on most kennels than the Large.
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. 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.
