What are the differences between the Hound Heater Furnace and the Hound Heater Classic?
The new heater now has several differences from my previous model. First, it is powered by a replaceable, extremely long life (50,000+ hour) wire resistance element. This technology is one of the most reliable heaters in the world. Second, I have built in a 100,000 cycle, very accurate, thermostat (replaceable). No more wondering what temperature your pet’s house is. The Hound Heater Classic is a basic, very efficient, heater. You can plug it in once it gets cold and leave it on. It is now powered by the same long life, wire resistance element as the Hound Heater Furnace but at a lower wattage (100 watts) so it won’t get the house too warm.

What size pet house can I put the new Hound Heater in?
The Hound Heater Dog House Furnace can easily heat a well insulated dog house up to 32 cubic feet. Of course there are many, many important factors to consider. IE: What is the outside temperature?, How much insulation?, Does it have a door? The beauty of the new heater is, because it is thermostatically controlled, it can go in a small house as well. Once the pre-set temperature (medium is approximately 50 F) has been reached it will turn off and on to keep your pet warm and dry.

Can I use a Hound Heater in my Igloo style house?
Absolutely! The new Hound Heater will mount the same as it would in a square house. (see mounting in an Igloo style house) It is important that you use nuts, bolts and washers instead of screws for mounting. The Hound Heater back stays cool so there is no problem or worry about melting the plastic.

How do I figure out the size of my house?
To determine how many cubic feet you have, you must multiply the Length X Width X Height, aka: L x W x H. An example would be: 4 ft long x 2 ft wide x 2 ft tall= 16 cubic ft.

My dog really chews. Will he get shocked?
No worries here! The cord comes out the center, back of the heater. If the house is outside the kennel, they don’t have access to it. If the house is inside the kennel and you have concerns about your pet chewing the cord, you can purchase the unit with an extremely, heavy duty, stainless steel spring. This spring covers the entire length of the cord.

What is a thermocube and how does it work?
A thermocube is a very simple plug in device that will turn the previous Hound Heater 1 or 2 ON and OFF depending on the outside temperature. (It is NOT necessary for the new Hound Heater Dog House Furnace.) It turns “on” when the outside temperature goes below 35° F and “off” when the outside temperature goes above 45° F. In order for the thermocube to properly function, it must be plugged into an outlet located in an unheated area outside of the doghouse. It has two outlet plugs so one thermocube can operate two Hound Heaters. Perfect for warm/cool climates or early fall – late spring conditions.

Is there any assembly required with the Hound Heater?
Absolutely not! Simply follow the simple mounting instructions and plug in the heater.

I installed my new Hound Heater Dog House furnace but the house is not warming up?
I have gotten this question often and the answer is always quite simple. Every house should contain insulation and every house should have some kind of door. Doing this will eliminate the two kinds of heat loss that occur. One is conductive and the other is infiltration. The first one can best be described by thinking of holding a pop in the summer’s heat, no can cooler. How long would the pop stay cold? The can cooler (insulation) stops the conductive loss from your hand to the beverage. The door or flap will trap the heat. Think of how your own house would feel if you left the front door open in the winter?

Customer Testimonial:

Dear Hound Heater,

Living in the middle of Alaska in the wintertime is a harsh environment for my wirehair and shorthair hunting dogs. But the dog houses with Hound Heaters installed, even at -50 below zero, both dogs are happy, healthy and warm. I have had 2 Hound Heaters for more than 2 years with no problems and they are still functioning as designed. Great product, great engineering means happy dogs. Keep up the great work. We live in one of the most extreme harsh climate conditions, these heaters have proven to be a must have item for dogs, you can trust and rely on this product.

Excellent HeaterReview by Ron
Star Rating
Basically this is a baseboard heater for your dog house. If you have a pet that is outdoors during the winter or in cooler climates, I consider the hound heater essential. Our pet house is well insulated and I have the thermostat set to around 70 degrees. Using a wireless thermometer, the temperature hovers within 3 degrees of the set point, regardless of outside temp.

I really do recommend this. Quality, well built product that should last a long time. (Posted on 12/6/2013)

It was easier to install that I expected. The thermostat and fire safety features are great. It seems to only kick on when the temps fall below the thermostat setting. Working really well. (Posted on 12/6/2013)

Love it! The Hound Heater was easy to install, it's well made, and it's even quiet! I was worried it would sound like a vacuum. My dogs absolutely love their dog house now and it keeps them cozy and warm with the thermostat. It's nice to not have to worry about them getting too cold.

Would definitely recommend to people on the fence. (Posted on 11/19/2013)
