A dog’s home is his castle, so there are some guidelines to consider when designing a dog kennel-
What you will actually need to know is:
- Size of your dog
- Type of breed
- Weight (this helps you figure out what the fence needs to be made out of)
LOCATION OF DOG KENNEL –
This is the very first step towards getting the perfect kennel . Each location has its own pros and cons . You have to decide the location , keeping in mind the pros and cons .
CLEANLINESS AND HYGIENE FOR DOGS KENNEL –
Every Dog must have his day!
Keeping the kennel clean is also a tedious task . Make sure a water source is easily available near the kennel so that cleaning up is easy .
FLOOR AND WALLS-
Kennel run floors should be designed with enough slope so water will run off to avoid standing puddles.Concrete is the most common material for the floor on dog kennels. There are more options like steel and wood, but concrete, though more costly and difficult to install, is tougher and more long lasting.
Concrete floor is ideal !
POSITION OF DOOR –
With doors at the far end of the kennel run, dogs have to stand in and walk through pee and poop when exiting and entering the run, scattering feces all over.So door should be positioned on the side instead at the end of the kennel run.
Chain-link fencing is easy to find, easy to install and easy to maintain.
Welded wire which is very much resistant to dog urine and dog teeth ,makes it a good option .
Good kennel designs are
- Less stressful for dogs and so quieter, safer & built for their welfare needs.
- Easy to clean
- Long lasting
Make sure that it is the proper size for your dog, there are no splinters sticking out, it is properly insulated and that it will protect the dog from the elements.
You have 2 choices here, you can either go for wooden panels which offer a lot more protection but are generally harder to install, or for textile covers that are a lot easier to install but don’t offer much protection in the long run.
You can add more things .
You can add small ramps later on, and even clear the grass off of a small area from inside the dog pen, make sure it is within the area that is covered by the roof preferably right next to the entrance to the dog house, and lay down something along the lines of fine gravel or even rubber – something that the dog can sit and lounge on in peace while enjoying the breeze and the light.
