Basic Instructions on How to Build a Dog Kennel

Rather than buying a commercially available dog kennel, many pet owners opt to instead build their own. This would

allow the owner to build the kennel to fit his dog's specific needs. Factors such as the size and breed of the dog

should all be considered whether one is planning to buy a premade kennel or build one from scratch.

A dog kennel should be designed in such a way that it allows for maximum comfort and convenience for both you and

your pet. It should be built in such a way that you can see your dog at all times, and that he can see things such

as when you pull in and our of your driveway. Be careful, however, about putting the kennel in a location that would

cause your dog to bark at someone walking down the sidewalk or driving by. Your dog probably would not want to be

out in the rain for too long, so an ideal kennel has both an outdoor area as well as an indoor area for those rainy


You must also decide what materials to use when building your dog kennel. Steel is usually considered to be a better

alternative to wood and plastic both because it's easier to clean, and because it won't splinter and cause harm to

your pet. Wood kennels can harvest mold or begin to rot if not properly maintained, so consider all of these factors

when choosing the material you will work with.

Sanitation is an important factors to consider when building a dog kennel. It should be built in a way that allows

you to clean it easily, without much inconvenience to either you or your pet. Consider building a slight slope into

the kennel to allow for better drainage, so you can simply hose away dirt and debris without having to mop up any

excess water that may have collected. Frequent disinfection will keep odor to a minimum, in addition to keeping your

dog healthier.

Try to put good craftsmanship into your dog kennel, so that it will serve you and your pet for many years to come. A

good kennel should be sturdy and able to withstand the elements, while at the same time keeping your dog safe and

comfortable with a place to sleep. If your dog is important to you, then the decision to invest in a good dog kennel

should be an easy one
