I'm not sure exactly how much you're wanting to spend, but I would put up a dog run of some type. Chain link isn't that expensive and you could get yourself a nice dog run in for a couple hundred bucks....They sell them in lengths of 50ft usually, and from lowes it's 80 bucks for that much, that's a 10foot by 25foot enclosure. Which isn't too bad to leave your dog in for 8 hours at a time. And then you can just buy a tarp to put over one end to keep the sun off.

Most likely your dog is gona dig, so if you do not want to put down hardened gravel which is as costly as cement/concrete, then I would recomend just getting a solid chain link kennel/run, run re-bar through the bottom of the chainlink to keep them from pushing it up at the bottom mangling the wire, and use J hooked re-bar to stake it down all centers and corners.. goat wire the top and put a tarp above, I like trampelene material as it sheds water without pooling or leaking. Dog houses are various, my favorite is a 50gal drum w/ legs welded on it and covered in roof coating or rhino guard. This is what I would do in TOWN with that being said you should give him a tie out as the axel above to give him some to run off energy, no matter how much you do they keep going and going.

Out here in the sticks my kennel setup is more like that of Ceasar Milan, on a patch of 10 acres.

This is what I have set up... Well I have tore it down recently as I am building a new system. This is how I raised 6 dogs and 4 litters, in the style of wolves in a pack. This is a 30 X 40 with a puppy pen on the side. I am actually building a stall and kennel system to give the dogs stall like individual dog houses, individually that open up in to a bigger run.
I will draw a diagram for you of the pen I was speaking of as to a secure kennel for intown. However if you do it right, between clothes line poles, trees, or 4x4 posts the cable system works great check out Old Fort Kennels(member) set up, One as such set up the side or back of your yard would also be ideal.
