There was somebody asking on another forum so I thought I would share here too.

Maybe these will help some folks.

Here's a kennel right after I put it together.


Then I build a fence floor and add the sections to help keep the gravel in place when I add it.





Then cover it all with gravel



If you look real close you can see the welded wire that covers the top. I use a 2x4 across the middle to support the fencing. It also makes it easy to put tarps across the top for shade. :)



Then of course a nice dog house is always essential.

thanks for posting this , I have a dog run sililar to your kennel and its got a roof and is really sturdy but We do have to fill n holes being dug around the base , that fence idea with gravel ontop would be the perfect solution.

Thanks Nizmo. I might add I also add a 2nd latch to the doors. One is a little under eye level and the other is little below knee level. Makes the door very solid. I also want to say that fence flooring is nailed onto that wood frame from the bottom with U shaped nails. :)

Nice set up!!! You should post up the dog mobile pics as well that was pretty freaking awesome!
:) I have added a few more features since the last pics I posted on the other forum. I will get some pics of it in use this weekend and post them on Monday :)

I have been very pleased so far the 2 times I used it going to shows. :)

That dog house is the same design that I always wanted to build for my dogs. Thanks for sharing this, B.

thats probably one of the best set up's i've seen. you can tell you went the extra 10 miles in creating a set up, even if you have an excape artist ;)
but really, mad props bro.

Thread stickied, but I moved it to the Do-It-Yourself section, because that seemed appropriate. :)
