No, the Lectro-Kennel does not turn off when the dog is not lying on it, and we do this for a specific reason. The Lectro-Kennel will always emit heat, otherwise your pet would not know it is a heated pad and wouldn't be drawn to that heat. The surface of the pad will warm to your pet's normal body temperature when the pet is on the pad. When your pet is not on the pad the surface will be slightly above ambient air temperature and your pet will sense that little bit of extra warmth.
