The placement of your kennel, whether temporary or permanent, is important to ensure your dog is comfortable, happy and secure!
Temporary And Portable Dog Kennels
- Temporary kennels without floors should be placed somewhere away from water and on a level surface so that any rainwater doesn’t collect or make the ground in and around the kennel making it soggy and unstable.
- Due to temporary kennels not having a roof, it’s important to keep the kennel and your dog out of direct sunlight.
Permanent Dog Kennels
- The placement of a permanent kennel is perhaps even more important. It will be where your dog sleeps and spends their time when not around you. Avoid putting the kennel against/near your house. If you do this, you’ll hear every bark and smell every smell.
- Situating the kennel under trees is also a bad idea as falling branches and debris can damage the roofing and potentially injure your dog.
- The best place you can establish your outdoor dog kennel might be up against a garage or stable outdoor structure, meaning if you have a particularly destructive dog they will be unable to dig out or create a hole in the back of the kennel!
Our Top Tip: Ensure you check the dog kennel thoroughly when cleaning to spot any warning signs of attempted escapes such holes or scratch marks!
