About this item
The Dog Palace is a rotationally molded plastic house. It is made from material that can be commonly found in outdoor play ground products. All panels of these products are filled with recycled ESP foam. ESP foam (expanded polystyrene) can be commonly found in drinking cups. It is also used as an insulation material in construction.
To demonstrate the real value of insulation, we conducted an experiment on the Dog Palace with and without insulation. (Note: This product is only sold with insulation & door) The results of the experiment reflects the heat retention inside the Dog Palace using a common 100 watt light bulb (no other source of heat). At an outside temperature of 40° degrees the insulated Dog Palace will be 70° degrees inside while the Dog Palace without insulation will be approximately 45° degrees inside. At an outside temperature of 0° degrees the insulated Dog Palace will be 30° degrees inside while the Dog Palace without insulation will be approximately 4° degrees inside. An average dogs body heat will raise the temperature inside the Dog Palace 25° degrees in the winter without the floor heater (sold separately, available on Sams.com), therefore if the outside temperture is 25° degrees, with an average dog inside the Dog Palace the temperature is approximately 50° degrees.
The Dog Palace, consists of six panels that connect together and are then held in place with 8 screws. It is very easy to assemble and takes very little time. The door comes assembled to the front-end panel. Each panel is initially hollow and is filled with insulation material. Every panel is filled with insulation material giving your pet real insulation in it's home. This unit features 2"" - 4"" inches of real foam (Styro/EPS) insulation in each panel. Easy pass-through self-closing door. This unique Door design keeps wind to a minimum from reaching your pet, and closes itself. The special designed door is made in two pieces, the bottom half is Removable for initial training if needed. The Dog Palace is sized for medium to large dogs (Lab through Small St. Bernard). Another unit available on Sams.com, the ""DP Hunter"" is sized for small dogs (beagles, basset hounds, pugs, etc.) or cats. Self Storing window panels easily reposition from winter's closed position to summer's open cross ventilation position without tools. The insulated Floor is raised 4"" to provide a dry and warm bedding area. The Floor is sloped and has a drain hole to make cleaning a breeze, just hose down and water runs out. Your pet can see out while it rests in comfort (the ventilation windows are see thru). This item makes a beautiful addition to your back yard while keeping your dog clean, warm and comfortable. This house has everything, even a Floor Heater Portal (provides for Dog Palace Floor Heater cord to directly exit rear Panel ) and keeps dog or yourself from tripping over electrical cord. A Floor Heater is available for this house as well on Sams.com (sold separately item #: 018631).
