Beware!..... All cedar is not created equal.
Why Western Red Cedar?
WRC trees contain tannins that naturally preserve the wood from decay and insect attack. Additionally the wood is thermal coefficient with low density which enhances its insulation value because it contains a high proportion of cell cavities filled with air, one of the best known thermal insulators. Therefore "Western red" cedar wood stays cool to the touch in hot summer sun and warmer in winter
. This characteristic combined with WRC's centuries of proven performance make it the preferred choice for building outdoor structures as our dog house
and our cats house
The Western red cedar wood boasts a rich textured grain in a wide range of warm color tones creating a unique appearance, plus the mild natural red cedar aroma is non toxic and has relaxing therapeutic effects which can be calming for your pet. Our all natural cedar dog houses are as close to nature as your pet can get to an all natural environment, being nestled safely inside his luxury dog house while feeling right at home in the great outdoors!
If it's not "Western Red" Cedar, then it's just plain wood.
