Deluxe Lectro-Kennel Heat Pad (70326-V)
I gave this pad a 5 star because the product did everything the makers said it would do. I had a husky for 14 years that refused, and I mean refused, to sleep inside. We built him a large structure and put this pad on top of his bed. It kept my boy warm and cozy outside.No snow was ever around the pad, so I know it was working. What I liked about it was that it would only heat one degree higher than his body heat and operated only when he laid on it. I would recommend this product to anyone.
Agree: Cord is too short
The product works just the way it says it would. However; the cord is so short that if I plug it into the outlet next to the bed then there is no place to me to step when getting in and out of bed because the dog sleeps next to my bed on her own bed and I have placed her bed part way down so I can step into and out of my bed. She is a very large dog. I have not as yet figured out how to actually use this heat pad to be on her bed and exactly what I plan to do. It would be an easy fix if only the cord were longer.
Cord is really too short.
I really like the warmth they provide. I do NOT like the little short cord. The cord is about 12-18 inches to short to lay on a kennel/barn floor. I do NOT think the manufacture figured on them being used in barns and kennel's, only houses. Barn and kennel plugs in are half way up the wall...plugs are NOT located near where a baseboard would be.
PLEASE ADD 12-18 INCHES TO THE LENGTH OF ELECTRICAL CORD!!! THANKS
I noticed an "electrical smell" coming from our whelping box about 20 minutes after plugging the unit in. The plastic where the "temperature display" is located melted. I am not sure why, but glad I caught it BEFORE it caused a fire. Being that it was only used for a very short time, I am not sure if it was a defective unit or if the bitch and pups laying on it (weight) could have caused it. In the trash it went!
