The Challenge

The kennel’s significant size and lack of insulation exposed housed dogs to uncomfortable temperatures and posed challenges for caretakers. Additionally, the absence of insulation left valuable assets vulnerable to damage and invited pest-related issues.


R2.0 Closed Cell Spray Foam was meticulously applied for its exceptional insulating properties. Temperature sensors were used to monitor temperature changes before and after insulation.


Insulating with Pacific Urethanes’ R2.0 Closed Cell Spray Foam has yielded multiple benefits for the kennel.  Dogs experienced heightened comfort levels, reducing the risk of heat-related illnesses. Caretakers also enjoyed improved working conditions, leading to heightened job satisfaction and efficiency. Moreover, the insulation reduces power bills, lowers carbon emissions, and enhances the effectiveness of the air conditioning system.


Post-insulation, a significant reduction in ambient temperature of up to 20 degrees Celsius was observed within the kennel.  This improvement has significantly enhanced comfort levels for both dogs and caretakers, promoting a healthier and more productive environment.


The implementation of R2.0 Closed Cell Spray Foam insulation emerges as a highly effective solution, fostering a safer and more comfortable environment for both dogs and caretakers.  This case study highlights the significant impact of investing in insulation to enhance animal welfare, operational efficiency, and environmental sustainability within large-scale dog kennels
