I have (4) of them. Had them for (4) years. I don’t use any bedding. Dog houses are insulated walls, floor and ceiling. Going into my 5th winter. Houses stay in the mid 40’s to 50. Dog’s come out of the house on cold mornings (down as low as -20°) and they’re warm to the touch. I put 1-1/2” blue board with 1/2” plywood on top on the floor. Feed easily 1/4 to 1/3 less dog food in the winter than when I had no heaters. I live in NH so not uncommon to have below zero temps at times from late Dec. to early March.

I have them, and use bedding. I prefer hay or straw mixed with a little cedar shavings. I got the idea to mix the blessings from an old timer.
