Recommended Posts

IMG_0220_zpshgyd4xlk.jpg

i used these for manys the years,filled them with straw never had a bother with condensation.I had a few slits cut in the floor just in case but in the winter I used to check the dogs and they were very warm in them.Built block kennels now but couldnt knock these.I used to cut a barrell in half slide one piece over the other and cut a circle through both pieces,20 minutes job done,screw into the end to stop the top from swivelling closed,

I think them yank igloo things look stupid,,,and I seen a pic of your back garden,,,lovely country garden ,,they wouldn't look right.....

 

Get a good solid tongue and grove shed,,,with a good quality runn on,,,possibly made of them galvanised panels,,,inside the shed build some sleeping boxes ,,,,you know what I'm on about you've been about a bit...

 

The bigger the shed you can afford ,,,the more space you have for other stuff in there,,,,will look far nicer in your garden

Thanks Tomo, although thats exactly what i have now, two galvo barred runs on a shed with kennels built in.

 

I'm putting a big summer house/shed down the rnd of the garden this year and rather than have two, i was looking for alternatives and as the kennels are near the house, lower the height with boxes for a better view. With the plastic i was just making sure i wasnt living in the dark ages but it seems i'm not!

Wood looks warmer and cosier, not so sure it is though.

What I am sure of is the fact it can absorb and hold infection and disease for years.

It needs to be treated and repaired for its lifetime.

If you have a dog that is a chewer it can turn a sturdy wooden kennel or shed into firewood in no time (I've had them).

I could be wrong but I don't think you can get a breeding or boarding licence now if you have wooden kennels.
