The first heated dog house we will review is the ASL Solutions Deluxe Dog Palace. This doghouse has a lot of things we really like including a heater and a fan.
Our favorite feature is the solar panel on the top. Unfortunately, it only powers the fan, but it does provide enough power to really cool the room down. The solar panel still saves a decent amount of electricity, which we really like. It has a battery to store energy, so you should not have any problem keeping the fan spinning.
The reason that the ASL Solutions dog house makes the list isn’t the solar powered fan though. It’s the excellent built-in heater that keeps the dog house toasty during the cold winter nights. This isn’t a blower style heater either. Instead, it’s a heated pad placed under the plastic floor.
You won’t have to worry about dryness or the heater coil burning out with this unit since it’s actually fairly durable. Your dog can’t chew on it since it’s underneath the plastic floor. We do recommend placing a bed of some sort over the plastic, that way your dog doesn’t sleep on the warm plastic. This is not necessary, but your dog will most likely enjoy it and the house will still stay warm. Nothing feels better than a warm blanket when it’s cold outside.
This dog house has a fan, a heater, and it also has insulation. Insulation is really what makes a heated dog house much better than a normal dog house. The ASL’s insulation means the dog house is 25 degrees (Fahrenheit) hotter when a dog is inside the dog house, even when the heater is off.
The exact temperature does vary depending on the size of your dog. A bigger dog will result in a warmer dog house. Fortunately, the fan does turn on if the dog house gets too hot and will push some cool air around the house, which will really cool it down. You don’t have to worry about your dog getting too hot with this dog house.
Finally, the windows combined with the smooth plastic surface make cleaning a breeze. Just open the windows and spray down the floor. The floor is sloped toward a drain in the corner to make things that much easier.
