Bitchy comment wasn't directly aimed at you, was in general.
Over night it's only as warm as the palm of your hand, but it helps me sleep at night knowing that they have that extra bit of warmth.
As I said I live in a very old house, and during the winter months even I wake up with icicles on my nose! Let alone the dogs.
I appreciate that they do get hot, hence why I said to thermostat.
It's all very well and good people jumping off the band wagon with dont do this and don't do that, but it doesn't help with the advice already given!
It does get cold over night in Australia, but we forget these animals are captive bred and haven't actually experienced that temperature changes of Australia, only the settings in which they where bred and where sold.
There are many people out there that will try and fob you off, believe me, over the years I've met many. I appreciate this forum for people's own experiences. But over recent months, there's less of that, and genuine helpful advice, and more of slating each other and jumping down each others throats.
