It makes a big difference, uninsulated (like mine) act as a heat sink , insulation allows the dog to at least heat it with its own body heat and prevents frost/cold getting to dog, as well as creating a cooler place in the summer. Can also add a flap or curtain to provide more comfort. I have an insulated box abroad where temps reach minus 20, dogs were fine. Here I need to improve what I've got a bit with some insulation , going to be increasing the run off angle tomorrow as the run holds a little water .

👍👍

So are them monarch kennels just kingspan between 2 pieces of plastic then. I read it as some sort of insulated plastic 

It may well be a laminate, I'm no expert, I'll have a look I'm sure you can get a refrigeration board ....

when it sounded like they were just 22mm insulated board it’d be worth paying extra for instead of plywood

I’ve dealt with plenty of kingspan and fridge pannels. Just when someone said they where maid out of a 22mm insulated it sounded like a decent product

It’s probably just pvc laminated board it has insulation properties your probably better off just ringing up the main dealer/manufacturer an finding out exactly how there made or ask for a sample of the material there insulated from they look smart though

All I'm going to do to mine is put some batten three foot up and drop a 100mm board on it then get some thinner stuff and put it on floor sandwiched between some ply,  maybe stick some leftovers to sides,
