The World's Only Underground
Heated and Cooled Dog House
Q. How do I install my DogEden underground dog house?
A. Follow these easy steps:
|Step 1: "SAFETY FIRST" Check for underground power lines. You should always call your local power company before you dig. It's free to have them come out and check for you.|
|Step 2: Look around the yard for a level or slightly raised spot. *Note* Stay away from low lying areas or dips. Place the DogEden in your selected location. *Note* If you live north of the equator, face the DogEden opening toward the South because most of your bad weather will come from the North. Do the opposite if you live south of the equator: Face the DogEden toward the North.
|Step 3: Take a spade or shovel and score the turf or dirt outlining the hole where the DogEden dog house will eventually sit. Move the DogEden to the side. If there is sod, remove the sod from the place marked.
|Step 4: Dig a rectangular hole in the space marked. Place the dirt on a tarp or wheelbarrow for easy removal later.
|Step 5: Place the DogEden in the hole. The entrance should be snug to the surface of the ground. If not, remove the DogEden and adjust the hole depth.
|Step 6: When the DogEden dog house is seated correctly, fill in any space on the side with dirt. Tamp the dirt firmly and leave room to replace the removed sod, if needed. For lead models, attach the lead cable.
|Step 7: Go get your best friend and watch as they enjoy their new DogEden!
Q. What tools do I need to install my DogEden?
A. A round-nosed shovel or spade.
Q. What kind of bedding should I use in my DogEden?
A. We recommend cedar chips. They naturally repel fleas and ticks.
Q. How do I clean my DogEden?
A. Wipe the exterior with a damp cloth periodically. To clean the interior, you just sweep the old bedding to the front with broom, Then just scoop it out with your hand or with a shop-vac. Then wipe with a damp cloth or mop. Do not use harsh chemicals as they are harmful to your dog.
Q. Should I use a chain or vinyl coated cable as a tie out?
A. Both work fine but we recommend the rubber or plastic coated cable as it makes no noise as your dog enters or leaves the DogEden.
Q. What if my DogEden becomes flooded?
A. Under normal weather circumstances the DogEden should not flood if properly installed. If it fills with water, use a mop, sponge, rag or shop-vac equipped for water removal to sop or suck out the water in your DogEden.
Q. What is See Spots Recycled?
A. The spots on the DogEden show the recycled materials used in producing this product. This amounts to 20% of each den, or we like to think of it, up to 400 discarded beverage containers saved from going into a landfill.
