Ideal for use in a kennel, doghouse, garage, basement or anywhere extra warmth is desired. Internal Thermostat keeps the temperature at a desirable 100° when used. The rugged ABS plastic pad has a 5', steel-wrapped, abrasion-resistant cord and can lay flat or attach to a wall. Makes an excellent whelping pad when used with Lectro-Temp Control™ (sold separately) which allows for reduction of temperature. Covers also sold separately.
My dog loves the outdoors and loves this heated mat which enables her to stay outside and be comfortable. We love not having to let her in and out so often. The cover could be better designed and more durable. It frequently requires repositioning.
These heat pads work very well for my sulcata tortoises. Winter nights are a little too cool for them, even in So CA. I use these heat pads (without a cover) in a double walled doghouse and the tortoises can maintain their body temperature. They naturally go into the warm house when it is cool and come out when the sun is up. I like that the hard plastic pads can be cleaned with water and are indestructible, even by a large tortoise.
We are a breeder of English Mastiffs and have used these pads for whelping pads and heat pads for our dogs, indoors and outdoors and have been very happy with them. We really like that the pad is not constantly hot, it only heats up completely when there is weight on it. You can put a light blanket over it for it to be slightly warm and when a dog lays on it, it warms up quickly. Our dogs know where the heat is! They all love these pads in the colder season of the year.
