The DP Hunter Dog House 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 EPS foam (commonly 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 and door.) The results of the experiment reflect 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, the insulated Dog Palace will be 70 inside, while the Dog Palace without insulation will be approximately 45 inside. At an outside temperature of 0, the insulated Dog Palace will be 30 inside, while the Dog Palace without insulation will be approximately 4 inside. An average dog's body heat will raise the temperature inside the Dog Palace 25 in the winter without the floor heater (sold separately, available on samsclub.com) ; therefore, if the outside temperture is 25, with an average dog inside the Dog Palace the temperature is approximately 50. The Dog Palace is very easy to assemble and takes very little time. Every panel is filled with 2" - 4" inches of real foam insulation material, giving your pet real insulation in his or her home. The easy pass-through, self-closing door design keeps the wind that reaches your pet to a minimum and closes itself (the bottom half is removable for initial training, if needed) . The Dog Palace is sized for medium to large dogs (small Lab through small St. Bernard) . Another unit available on samsclub.com, the "DP Hunter" is sized for small dogs (beagles, basset hounds, pugs, etc.) or cats.
