Be careful with tanalised wood in runs/kennels as its full of toxins. Few year back I had a young bitch running free in garden and it chewed on decking and burnt all its mouth, mouth was all sore and looked glued up. I took it to vets and he knew what it was straight away, quite common apparently. A jab and some tablets and it did heal up quick enough mind .

i had barrells for years ,during the winter of 2009,minus 12 ,i filled the barrells with straw and the dogs were roasting in them ,the only draw back was cleaning them ,i had to crawl in at times to get the things swept clean,but their as warm as hell,i paid 60 quid for each of mine ,but compared to a conventional dog box their half the price of a well made ply box

I'm wondering about getting a big one, cutting it in half and giving it a ply base and then cutting a pop hole through it. The ply base could be hinged to allow for easy opening and obviously the roof would be flat for the dog to lay on in warmer weather (top or bottom of the actual barrel).

Be ideal for the spaniels and terriers I'm keeping at the mo maybe :hmm:perhaps need whole barrel though for lab and lurcher sized dogs....

I have used plastic barrels but the dogs didn't seem to like them they prefer the wood boxes, the wood boxes cost about 40 to 50 quid for materials, the dogs chew feck out of them as well.

Anyone still use a chain and barrel like the bulldog yards in the US

Ive kept dogs on a kennel and chain in the past.I even had a bull cross bitch that preferred being on a chain setup to being in one of my 3mx2m runs.Never liked plastic barrels though.Tried them for a short time and didnt matter what I did with them they'd be soaked with condensation inside.Have used oak barrels though many years ago.
