|Our puppy's "Long term confinement area" is a room off our kitchen. I guess it's supposed to be a pantry or something...it's about 10x10 and has two windows. We have shelves there but we've carefully moved everything chewable off the bottom two shelves.
There's no radiator in this room...just in the kitchen which is connected by a doorway (no door). But it does get a little colder than the rest of the house. It's 4°F out right now and I'd bet it's about 65°F in there whereas the rest of the house is about 70-72°. It's comfortable for a human wearing a sweater, but the tile floor does feel chilly on bare feet.
Our puppy will sleep in her crate in the bedroom with us, which stays pretty warm. And we won't leave her alone for very long (2-3 hours max) in the first few weeks. And she has a covered crate to go in. I'm just wondering if I should buy an electric heater to keep it warmer for her? I guess I'd have to leave it in the kitchen, cause I wouldn't want her chewing the cord...?
