Flat roof, top opening dog houses are another choice for outside tortoise dens in mild climate areas. Ideally, choose a dog house that is insulated all around, including floor, walls, and roof. Obviously, the better insulated the house is, the less less energy is needed to heat it. Add extra insulation as necessary for your climate.

Start off by choosing the right type of dog house. A summer shelter is not adequate. Purchase a heavy-duty hard plastic shelter that is tall enough for the dog to sit up and long enough to stretch out on the ground. Next, insulate the shelter. The greatest loss of heat occurs via the shelter’s floor. It is here that you have to focus your insulating efforts. Raise the dog house a little off the ground. Even just a few inches can make a huge difference. dog house for two | Custom Large Heated Insulated Dog House with Porch & Pet Doors ,Open ...

The STEP Warmfloor heating element will only add the amount of heat needed to give the dog the optimal amount of comfort.

A heated mat is an effective way to warm your pet - especially if the house is insulated - although some owners may be a bit nervous about their dog sleeping directly on an electric device with a cord running from it. This is mostly a concern if your dog is a chewer. Note that most mats have a metal safety coil around the cord so if you can
run the unprotected part of the cord out of the dog's reach, you're in business. Otherwise, you might consider encasing the rest of the cord with PVC pipe.
