    The kennel cover is very well made. It has plenty of pockets which I like that and mine hasn’t faded at all. The only problem I have with it are the d-rings on top, when I ratchet strap it down in the bed of my truck the d-ring separates. I called and they told me that’s the first they ever heard of that so I sent my original one back and they sent me another one and it to had the same problem.

    Bought one of these about four months ago and really like it. Cover is very well made. My dog rides in the back seat area of my F150 SuperCrew and this cover well suited for that type of use. The storage pockets make it easy to put all of my “dog stuff” in one place and makes loading the truck for a hunt that much easier. I’ve had her in the parked truck for a couple of hours in 10 degree weather and found her cozy and warm when I unzipped the cover.

    I have owned and used the same cover for years and have found equal parts good and bad for it. First off, it took me three different orders to find the right size kennel to fit in the cover I purchased. It would be helpful if recommendations could be made on best kennels for each size. Secondly, I feel like the insulation is not thick enough. I have never tested it in 20-degree winter with my dog inside to see what the internal temperature is, but my gut tells me it would not be that much higher. Third, it frays and has a lot of strings that come out, leading me to believe holes in the seams will not be long to follow. And lastly, the fading; this cover fades in a matter of months and I don’t know if it also has a deteriorating effect on the material/insulation. But despite those things, the cover is great, has held up well, looks great with the right size kennel, and the none-skid bottom is top-notch.

    I bought the Mud River Insulated Kennel Cover to use with my Ruff Tough Kennel (RTK) two years ago to keep my two year old Springer in my SUV or my hunting partners covered pickup rather than bringing him into motels while pheasant hunting during November, December and January. I hunt in SD, ND, Iowa, and Minnesota and the temperature often drops below freezing. For example, while hunting in South Dakota last week, the temp dropped to 10 degrees at night, but he was toasty warm and well-rested the next morning – and ready to hunt! Both of us sleep better because he sleeps in the vehicle! The combination of the RTK and the Mud River Insulated Kennel Cover are the two best investments I made for my dog (and for me!). On a scale of 1 to 5, this Kennel Cover is a 10!

    I bought two of these about a year and a half ago because I travel with my dog a fair amount and want to make sure they were well take care of. They work great and the quality is good but there is one thing you need to be aware of , they fade badly and will change colors. Now those beautiful brown cover are now turning pink and the other on is turning green. I call the company and their response was too bad, we can’t do anything about it.

Q: What’s the recommended safe temperature range to have the dogs on the freeway in the back of an open pickup bed with these insulated kennel covers?
— Asked by Bryan on May 19, 2020
A: Bryan, Regarding the ideal temperature for the kennel covers. There are a lot of factors that go into this , if your dog has been working, temperature, is the sun out, humidity, wind etc. are you using the cover in the open bed of a truck, in the back of an SUV , etc? It is something you really need to think about before using the cover each time. Basically the insulated cover will keep the temp inside the kennel 20-40 degrees warmer than outside air temperature, depending on the factors I mentioned above. I am not going to give a temp range for use of this, but I will say typically a good rule of thumb would be to use the insulated cover in the winter, and by winter I mean a SD winter not a mild MS winter. This is not to say you can't use the insulated cover if you live in the South. Our Brand Manager lives in AR and uses it during the winter and knows plenty of people in the Southeast who utilize these covers** Keep in mind on the insulated ( and uninsulated) cover, even during the winter, depending on using in a temp controlled environment and above factors, you may take the windows off to allow air flow, or leave the door open. I would say it would need to be pretty cold ( windy, dog resting not hot from running, in open cab of truck) etc, where you would consider having the kennel cover fully closed. You could think of the insulated cover like a ski jacket or winter coat and the uninsulated cover as a wind breaker. .

Q: Have you tried the covers with any of the wire kennels? I like them in the hot weather but would like to cover them in the winter.
— Asked by Doug on April 25, 2018
A: Hi Doug, there are a couple of of wire kennels that we know are compatible with our Kennel Covers. **Midwest Life Stages ™ Midwest Life Stages 1630 : 30” 30 x 21 x 24 - Extended Large Kennel Cover Midwest Life Stages 1636 : 36” 36 x 24 x 27 - XL Kennel Cover Please note: Mud River does not warranty kennel covers used on wire crates. They will eventually wear the cover in the corners. However, to help with the wear and tear on the top edges of the wire crate you can buy the pipe insulation at a hardware store that has a slit in it already and put around the top corners of the wire crates. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
