    New to K9 and I was wondering what you guys have for your outdoor kennels. Mine is a simple 4x12 with a dog house on concrete. Looking to improve it and would like to see what others are using.

    A friend of mine built this himself.

      Mine is a 10x10 with a roof on a 11x11 concrete slab. There is a water bucket, food bowl, and a dog igloo in it. On some hot days I might throw his kiddie pool in there but don't leave it over night. The more you put in there or fancier crap you put in there the more you have to clean and maintain.

      Also anchors and a lock are a must. Those fury beasts will find a way out if they want to so make it impossible.

        This is pretty much my setup except that I also have a tin roof over the top of the kennel.

            Ive being given an E/Z kennel for my dog to sleep in, but figured he is going to need a run as well. What are your thoughts of the E/Z kennel? Any flooring suggestions for the outdoor run? I don't want to put a concrete slab in the backyard. Anyone else have pictures of their kennel setup?

              I've talked to a few guys (maybe one or two that have wood floors in their kennels. It is rare and can breed bacteria. Just becareful with pressure treated lumber I've heard the pressure treated chemicals can mess with the dogs. Just go with the slab it's safer and easier to maintain.

                Find a copy of the SV magazine. It's all in German but there's ads & sometimes articles regarding kennels. As an aside to this, concrete flooring can hold bacteria that can promote worm growth along with all sorts of other things. My kennel has -2 decomposed granite in it. I it can get soggy in wet weather but I can rake over any urine or stool matter & the surface is relatively fresh.

                    Personally I'm just not a fan of textured flooring in a kennel unless you're willing to wash, perhaps even scrub it at least once a week. While the ad shows it's hygienic you'd still have to clean it to insure it being germ-free. For that, I'd just as soon use concrete partially in the kennel, bleach it once a week & torch it every other week.....

                      Anyone have a recommended size for a kennel? I was thinking 10x10, is that big enough?

                        A 10x10 is plenty big and they make several kennels at that size. Plus that size slab will make a nice foundation for a storage shed down the road.
