There are many reasons to get a good dog kennel for your dog. A big one is being able to give them shelter from the elements, whether it’s the sun or the rain. Over summer it’s paramount you provide your dog with a kennel that gives them shade. To make their dog kennel even cooler, consider placing it in an area of the backyard that gets a lot of shade. It may even be worth moving it under a pergola or decking if you have one.
What you put inside your dog’s kennel can also impact the internal temperature. If you have a thick dog bed that reflects their body heat, swap it out with a cooler option made with more breathable materials. Also, try removing any excess pillows and blankets from the kennel. This will help create more space and encourage air circulation to keep it cooler on those hot summer nights. Another great hack that dog owners have cottoned on to is buying larger dog kennels instead for all that extra room to move around in.
