Welded Wire Dog Kennels:
High strength as the welded wire is welded at each joint, making
it difficult, but not impossible to break the welds and forcing
the wire apart. Each of the ends of the welded wire should be
encased in the frame of the kennel, so the dog cannot be cut
by wire ends. Welded wire kennels are made in prefabricated panels,
making assembly very easy.
Higher price that chain link kennels. Be sure to check the thickness
or gauge of the wire used. The lower the gauge number, the thicker
and stronger the wire is. Caution, many welded wire dog kennels are being shipped
into the USA from China of questionable quality under American
sounding names. Check with the company who is selling the kennel
for the Country of Origin. If the sales staff can't answer
all of your questions without having to check on it and call
you later, find another supplier who can answer your questions.
Another issue with China made dog kennels is replacement parts.
If you purchase these kennels from a large retailer who stocks
these imported kennels, you will find replacement parts takes
weeks if ever to get.
