Thank you for visiting dog kennel basics.com.
Our goal is to help you make an educated decision about purchasing
and building a dog kennel system that fits both you and the needs
of your dog.
Many people do not understand the purpose
that a dog kennel serves. The kennel not only keeps your dog
in a controlled area, but it also serves to keep your dog safe
from other animals. Many people have purchased electronic dog
fence systems which do well at keeping your dog within a selected
area, but these systems do nothing to protect your dog from other
animals coming into the area and possibly harming your dog.
Picking the right type of kennel is important
as not all dog kennels are right for every dog. Many people try
the do it yourself method using wood and wire mesh which in some
situations can work out just fine, but many people do not have
the skills to build a dog kennel from scratch. For those people,
we can help. Just as there are many different types of breeds
of dogs, there are many different types of kennels available
on the market today. For most people, the question is which is
the right kind of kennel for their needs.............
Obviously, the larger a dog is, the larger
amount of space they need. Crowding a 150 lb dog into a small
5 x10 ft area is only inviting trouble. Dogs can be your best
friend, but leaving them constantly in a small area will make
them want to leave that area more and more. Soon, they try digging
under the kennel, climbing the kennel or jumping over to escape
the confinement. Building a dog kennel can be easy if you have
educated yourself about the right type of dog kennel for your
We will explain the different types of
dog kennels, how to maintain a healthy environment for your dog
while in the kennel, training your dog to be comfortable in the
kennel area and things to watch for when purchasing a kennel.
With the flood of new styles and quality issues with these dog
kennels, having the knowledge to make an informed decision can
save you many headaches when purchasing your dog kennel. Please
