Dog Kennels Guide

What Kennel or Cabin Should we Buy?

We have an excellent range of dog kennels & dog cabins to suit all breeds.

Cabins/Kennel Size :- There is no exact guide to the size of cabin to buy for a certain breed of dog, as breed size can greatly vary.

Provided with each Cabin you will find information on that particular cabin size. While your dog is at rest measure the area that you dog occupies.

If Choosing for a puppy please refer to the size of their parents, as this will give you an idea of how big your dog will probably grow.

once you have done this then compare with our cabin size's. Your dog should also have enough room to be able to comfortable turn around.

When choosing a kennel its much the same principle, However also taking into account the run area size. smaller breed, smaller run. the larger the dog or dog,s the larger the run.

With both kennels and cabins consider how long your dog will be spending in their new home - will it be all day or just whilst you go shopping etc.

Will your dog be outside in the chill of winter? If so, go for the insulated dog kennel / cabin which will keep your dog warm in the winter and cool in the summer months.
