Top Tips for Keeping Your Dog Kennel Warm in Winter

Just like humans, dogs enjoy a warm, cosy spot to curl up in on a frosty winter’s day.

While they might look warm in their fur coats, dogs are also susceptible to cold weather and can catch some nasty diseases when in the cold weather for too long.

So, if you’re looking for some simple ways to keep your furry family member warm and toasty in between nipping at snowflakes as they fall, digging tunnels, and running laps to make tracks in all the fresh snow, then keep on reading for our guide to keeping your dog kennel warm in winter.

Choose a raised dog kennel

Raising your dog kennel off the ground by a few inches will give you a climate control solution in both hot summers and cold winters. Allowing air to flow beneath the floor will cool the dog kennel on hot days.

At Keighley Timber & Fencing Sheds, our dog kennels are raised off the ground to keep your furry friend warm all year round. Our kennels are also made of tanalised timber, offering 20-year guaranteed protection against rot and the elements.

Place your dog kennel in a sunny spot

One of the easiest ways to ensure your dog’s kennel is kept warm in winter is by placing it in a sunny spot. This way it can reap all of the benefits of the sun’s natural warmth.

You should also ensure that your dog kennel is protected from (or at least turned away from) strong winds. This will prevent any cold air from entering your dog’s kennel and ensures your dog can enjoy a nice and toasty shelter on those chilly winter days.

Choose warm bedding

We all like a breath of fresh air sometimes, even on the chillier days, and your pup is no exception.

Let your furry friend enjoy a relaxing kip outside by investing in some warm and cosy bedding. Give your dog towels, sheets, blankets, or even rugs (like a bathmat) to cosy up his outdoor abode.
