Our Locally Manufactured Materials

As a family-run business, we are proud to support British manufacturing and small businesses similar to ours. When we found Garden and Animal Structures we set out to source local high-quality materials to provide our animal housing. Our dog kennels and aviaries are all built by us in our Stoke on Trent based workshop. We only work with the best quality materials, and luckily we found them right on our doorstep. 

Here we break down our materials, why we specifically chose to work with them and how they are beneficial in both a garden and animal structure. 


All of the timber we use in our garden and animal structures is machined and treated right here in the UK, we use tanalised timber, amongst others, which is anti-rot and protected against fungal decay. This offers high weatherproof quality, come rain or shine, allowing for less upkeep and lasting quality.  Our animal housing is designed and built by a qualified Joiner (Ross) who specialises in timber and other materials, which allows us to create any of our designs to fit your specifications and measurements of your garden, completely bespoke to you.  

Dog run panels 

We are proud to share that we are now using a local UK company to manufacture our dog run panels! Completely new for 2021, all of our 100% British made dog run panels are built to a higher specification than the European equivalent. This promises high quality, creating a heavier and stronger panel for you and your pups to safely enjoy. They have a thicker steel gauge and unique British galvanising that provides unique detailing you won’t find on other structures. Other plus points include 5cm spacing between bars that are 16mm diameter tubing with 1.5mm wall, providing space and safety, plus an ERW box section with 1mm thickness. They are also finished with a solid 16mm bar door hinge for longer lasting strength and ensuring against any unexpected escapes!

We spoke with many potential manufacturers and we can guarantee that our dog run panels are the best quality around, we are proud to work with the local team to provide secure dog run panels for you and man’s best friend.

Ironmongery & roofing

We only use UK based suppliers to provide all of our metal details, this ensures we have a close connection with the manufacturers so we can ensure high, crafted quality that surpasses UK standards. Together we work with them, with varying weather conditions in mind, ensuring your garden and animal structure is covered with strong roofing that will last the test of time.
