these kennels look good ...

I have a kennel and run for my dogs .. its called the Doggy Den :) but I am not really using it much to be honest, but it is a useful space to know I can put them in there when I am cleaning the kitchen floor etc... I think I just like them around me too much :S

My friend has just put a roof on a normal crate (using wood and covering it with roofing felt) and has fenced off the patio area. The crate is positioned in the shade with 2 sides against a wall against the house so it's sheltered. Her boxer puppy goes out there during the day when they leave her.

Good idea .. I don't leave mine in the kennel when I go out ... just in case they did bark .. we do have neighbours to think about, laughing that not that go out without them :)

My plan is to get them used to this space when I am at home .. just for a short period of time .. this way they will know its their space and feel secure in there..

Buddy will be fine ... sounds like a good idea .. more freedom in a kennel and run than in a crate ...

Let us know how you get on :) and a pic of buddy in his kennel would be lovely xxx

Just over £400 ,I wont use it while im around im just worried when i go out he might be really bored etc and because i dont have a utility he might be safer in the kennel.

And im thinking this is for when he's older not for now.

If i had a utility then i would leave him in the house but i dont.

Becky i also thought its fab because if we do move house it will be easy to pick up and move with us.

I've looked at these kennels and like the idea of them BUT if it rains he will get wet......not so good for the cockapoo coat.....the run really does need a roof.

My doggie den looks a bit like a posh shed ha ha ha ... the dogs seem to be happy in it .. but like I said I do need to use it more ... I think the kids would make better use out of it than the dogs ha ha ha ...camp out in the doggie den :)

I must admit I do like knowing it is there... and at some point I will need need this space to seperate them....

I will need another one if I get my 4 dogs xxx we won't tell hubby that just yet ....
