If you are planning to use the outside above ground then they will either need sealing or rendering. Not a cheap block to buy now, I am paying around £7 a m2 and that's cheap compared to some places

Both sets of blocks in the picture are 7n, the ones on the left are just "rough" for general use and certain load bearing work, and the ones on the right are "paint grade" only real difference is paint grade are finer aggregate, the red paint stripe tells you that. Neither are very good for kennels because of their "U value" they don't hold heat in very well at all, you can't use either above DPC in domestic dwellings on external walls for eg, heat loss, certain exeptions apply though.
You could build kennels, but they would need expensive foam board type insulation, then a ply skin over that internally, rendered or well painted externally for weather proofing or they will absorb water then break when it freezes in winter, but all blocks are the same, no matter what quality.
