Setting up a heater for a dog kennel can be done if there is an enclosed area within the kennel. Alternatively you could choose to place a dog house inside of the dog kennel and attach a AC/Heater unit to that.
Since many dog kennels are open it is normally out of the question to buy a
heater for the dog kennel
and if you think that your dog will need a heater during the winter months then you should definitely take this fact into consideration before buying a kennel
. There are kennels that you can buy which have an enclosed area, sort of like a kennel
but it is also quite simple to place a doghouse inside of the kennel
provided that you get a kennel
that is large enough to accommodate the dog house
while leaving enough room for your dog to move around in.

Not providing heating for your dog could be very detrimental for your dog in many areas and this is really an important issue that must be looked at closely before making any decisions about the types or sizes of dog kennel
to purchase for your canine. Too much heat can also be dangerous for your dog so be sure and get professional help before heating your dog's house
If you have a dog house that is well insulated and the weather is not that extremely cold then it might not be necessary to attach a heater unit to the dog house. You can always ask your dog's veterinarian if you have questions or doubts about the exact needs of your dog.
Should you decide to connect a climate control system to your dog's house or kennel it is always recommended to also have it insulated as that will save you money and will lengthen the life of the heating unit.
