Dog Breed Guide for Wren Heating Elements

BREEDS OF DOG – CHOOSING WREN LAMP ELEMENTS


The following table shows suggested element ratings for various breeds. These assume that the sleeping quarters at least are well insulated and free from floor draughts. The ratings apply for one dog, a bitch with puppies, or a litter of young pups. The recommendations take into account the height, size and hardiness of the various breeds, alternative powers being suggested in border-line cases.


The choice of heater units will depend upon the construction of the kennels and the conditions the dogs are accustomed to, but the final judgement must rest with the breeder or kennel operator. In the case of whelping bitches the unit must provide sufficient heat at floor level to keep the puppies’ warm while at the same time being suspended high enough to be well clear of the bitch. For this reason, the recommended heat ratings for certain very tall breeds are higher than might be expected for such hardy animals and can certainly be reduced where only fit, adult dogs have to be considered.
