I do a lot of traveling to field trials with my hounds and often worry that the temperature in my Owens dog box may be getting too high for the dogs. I have been using the Crate Cooling Fans for the last couple of years and I love them! I usually get a whole season on one set of “D” cell batteries, and my Owens dog box actually has two square “holes” that the fans fit perfectly. While other competitors are trying to find shade to tie their hounds in, I am able to get right in and get my guys entered, while my dogs are quietly waiting with cool air blowing over them. I have actually had my hounds in the box while temps were 80+ and they are sleeping peacefully while dogs in the shade are panting and digging, trying to stay cool. I have had to replace a fan or 2 due to water damage as the product is not waterproof, but over all they cannot be beaten. I have also found that the power cord offered with the Deluxe fan w/cooling system will work as there is a port for the power cord.
