Description

Protecting the welfare of dogs in kennels requires consideration of their unique sensory and thermoregulatory capabilities. Because dogs and humans perceive environments very differently, it is important to ensure that dogs' housing environments are tailored to meet their needs, rather than the needs of their caretakers. In this 4-page publication (PDF), the authors describe the effects of noise, odor, temperature, humidity, ventilation, and lighting on kenneled dogs.
