I’ve been meaning to talk about this subject for a little while now. The first thing I’m gonna talk about for all you dog lovers out there, is outside dog kennels or dog runs. So whether you already have an outside dog kennel or you are thinking about buying a dog kennel. You really need to know this.
There are a lot of different outside kennels you can get. The outside kennels you do not want to buy are, any of the dog kennels that are sold at the two big home improvement stores. Or any outside dog kennel, that is sold in a box.
There is a real simple way for you to tell a decent quality dog kennel, from the kennels that are a piece of sh*t. Look at the corners of the kennel panels. Whats a kennel panel, you may ask ? Your outside kennels are usually four kennel panels, with one of the panels having a gate in it. Think of a kennel as being your bedroom. Your bedroom has four walls, with one of your walls having a door in it. A dog kennel is the same thing. It has four walls, with one wall having a door in it. The only difference is, the dog kennel walls are made of chain link fencing.
And what holds the chain link fencing, is called the frame. The frame is made out of galvanized steel pipe.
So what you want to look at, is the corners of the kennel panel frames. The cheap kennels have rounded corners. The good kennels have square corners. **(picture of the two different types coming soon)**
The cheap outdoor dog kennels have cheap fabric, That’s what the fence manufacturer’s call the chain link material. And its not tied well to the frame of the kennel. Your dog can easily escape from these types of cheap kennels. To find good kennels do an online search, or you can start with the following two places.
If you have a TSC, (Tractor supply company), www.tractorsupply.com , near you they have some good outdoor kennels.
Or just type in dog kennels in your browser.
A local fence contractor can also build you a good outside dog kennel. If you do go this route, please leave me a reply, so I can tell you, what you should make sure they do.
Thanks for stopping by.

Quality dog pens or kennels, always have square corners, the inferior or cheap kennels, have round corners.
