A Buddy Has Built A New Kennel Building And I't Has Floor Heat. He's Looking For Kennel Decking / Mats For Each Inside Run To Give The Dogs A Place To Bed Down Off The Concrete. What Would Anyone Recommend?

I use Kuranda beds and horse mats.
The raised decking is a good idea as well. Just be ready for it to get chewed on.

Kennel deck is good. That's what we use. Horse/stall mats can be irritating to some dogs.

I'm a satisfied user of http://www.kenneldeck.com/ for several years, but not on a heated floor.

I would have to agree with Angie. My BLM developed chronic cough that the vet treated for presumed kennel cough but nothing worked until I removed the horsestall mats. Within 24 hours his symptoms had resolved.

With radiant heat, it will not matter what solid surface you put down, it will absorb the heat. Even a raised bed will be warm.
