anyone ever design a heater for a dog house?
Trying to figure out a good way of providing heat to a large type insulated doghouse....found the following via google
i'd like to be able to control the temp. with a thermostat and would probably put the rubber flaps, kinda like they use for walk-in boxes at the door....

I know this sounds weird. Around here most people put flaps over the door and have an electrician wire a light socket in there and use a 100 watt bulb for heat.

All that's necessary is a 1500 Watt space heater and a long extension cord - resistance heat is expensive so borrow some electricity from the neighbors, exterior outlets permitting.
Is this thread for real?

HAHAHA....let me explain a little more.
It's for a couple of sea otters in which they built a little doggy house basically out of plywood and insulated. The problem is that if the air temp is too low (below 80 at night) they won't mate, which apparently is a problem.
I originally told the keeper, "duh...just throw in a heat lamp".....well I guess they think it may somehow burn itself on the metal screen on the cieling of the box. I guess they tried the heat mats and the otters would leave, weren't happy.
So yeah this whole thing is pretty silly.....
