Electrical Safety Information

This heater is for use with 120 volts.

The cord has a plug shown at A in the diagram.

An adapter as shown at C is available for connecting three-blade grounding-type plugs to two-slots receptacles.

The green grounding plug extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box.

The adapter should not be used if a three-slot grounded receptacle is available.

If an extension cord is used, it needs to be a minimum of 18 gauge wires and it must have a 3 prong grounded plug end. Make sure the connections are elevated off the ground, and are not able to come in contact with water, and plugged into a GFCI outlet.

Operating Instructions

The Hound Heater must be properly installed before it is used.

Set the thermostat to the desired temperature in the pet house. By turning the thermostat knob clockwise, this will increase the temperature setting of the Hound Heater. When you turn the thermostat clockwise you will hear a faint click. The unit will turn on and run at maximum power until that chosen temperature is reached.

Approximate settings are as follows:

  • Low-Medium is approximately 35F-50F (1C-10C)
  • Medium-High is approximately 50F-80F (10C-26C)

The Hound Heater pet house furnace is powered by a long lasting 300 watt heating element.

Because all dog houses are different sizes, shapes, insulation values, with varying outside temperatures, etc., reaching the desired temperature will vary greatly. It is extremely important that your pet house be insulated and preferably have a door/flap.

Installation & Maintenance


Tools Required

  1. Measuring device
  2. Drill
  3. 1-1/8" wood drill bit
  4. Screw driver
  5. Three wood screws (not included).

Make sure Pet is removed from pet house prior to installation.

  • Step 1. The Hound Heater mus be mounted on a vertical wall of your pet house. Do not mount on the ceiling or floor. Place the heater as high as possible with a minimum of at least 3 inches from the ceiling. Do not place heater near floor of pet house.
  • Step 2. Using the 1-1/8" drill bit, drill a hole through the wall of our pet house (a minimum of 9" from the ceiling) where the center of the Hound Heater will be placed and the power cord will go through.
  • Step 3. Carefully feed the cord all the way through the previously drilled hole making sure the cord is not kinked.
  • Step 4. Mount the heater with the temperature control knob towards the ceiling and the slant towards the floor using three woof screws or nuts and bolts. Lightly tuck the filter (included in box) in the space between the heater and the wall behind the temperature control knob. This will help dog hair, dirt and dust from getting in the heater and improve functionality.
  • Step 5. Plug the nit into a GFI outlet and you are done. If you are using an extension cord, it must be a 3 wire, 18 gauge (outdoor rated) grounded plug cord. Be sure the connection is elevated off any surface and not near water.


Regular maintenance is important to the functionality and safety of the unit.

  1. The filter must be cleaned at least once per month to keep unit in safe and operable condition. To clean the filter, remove it from the nit and blow air or water through the filter until it is clean. Return the filter once it is dry to the unit.
  2. During regular maintenance, remove front cover and inspect for hair, dust, and debris. Ensure the fan is free from hair, dust, and debris and is able to move freely. To clean, we recommend wiping it out with a lint free towel and/or a soft bristled brush.

Please note that maintenance requirements may vary depending on factors such as increased exposure to hair and other particulates.
