Dog Kennel Design

After an initial consultation, we drew up plans with our customer to design a kennel block system to suit their requirements.  Firstly, they wanted three dog kennels with runs.  They also required two side sheds: one tongue and groove, the other wipe clean and insulated. Kennel floorplan.  

Dog Cabins

Rather than a full-height kennel, our customer requested our cabin-style sleeping boxes.  Having a wipe-clean lid and being removable for easy cleaning, the top of the sleeping box also provides a raised bed for the dogs to jump up to during the day.  We added aluminium anti-chew strips to the pop holes (dog’s entrance to the sleeping box).  The anti-chew strips prevent damage from the dog and also extend the life of the kennel.  Furthermore, we don’t use any handles or similar on the lids.  This means that there is nothing for the dog to catch on when jumping up or down. The dog kennel sleeping boxes had PVC lined insulation, wipe clean flooring and side-sliding hatches.

Kennel Dog Runs

For the dog runs, we used 5cm gap bar galvanised dog run panels.  The bars let the dogs see each other while being kennelled, and they allow plenty of fresh air to circulate throughout the dog runs.  Furthermore, the bar dog run panels also prevent dogs from being able to climb up, and the central support bar provides extra strength in the panel.  

Kennel Side Room

To the right of the kennel, we added a fully insulated and wipe clean side room.  Running the full depth of the kennel and run, it measured 5ft wide by 10ft 6 inches deep and provided over 50 square foot of space.  We filled the internal walls with polystyrene board and then fixed white PVC sheets over the top.  In addition, the flooring was upgraded to have a phenolic coating which provides an anti-bacterial and wipeable floor.  We also added two side windows which were glazed with 4mm thick toughened glass.

Side storage shed

To the opposite end of the kennel block was an additional storage shed.  Having a fully clad roof, walls and floor, the shed offers additional storage space for dog feed, leads or garden equipment.  This shed also had two glazed windows where we again added the 4mm toughened glass.   The entire structure was finished off with our Onduline roofing upgrade.  The corrugated bitumen has a longer lifespan than felt and is the perfect addition for kennels situated in windy or open locations.  The kennel was based on our Sterling Multi-Bay Dog Kennel Block.

Dog Kennel Block with Extended Runs

We based this bespoke build on on our Sterling Dog Kennel Block.  The four bay multi block had wider kennel sections and extended runs. A returning customer who had already purchased two of our kennel blocks from us requested this four bay kennel system.  The full height sleeping areas measured 6ft6 wide by 4ft deep providing plenty of internal space for their pack of Spaniels and Labs.  The runs were a massive 13ft long by 6ft6 wide, giving their working dogs ample room for stretching and walking around.

Stokbord Lining

The inside and fronts of the kennel sleeps were lined with 6mm thick Stokbord.  This protects the wood underneath and also prevents dogs chewing at the exposed timber.

Sliding Hatches

Sliding hatches are useful to keep dogs inside the sleeping area if housed overnight. They can also keep your dog in one area while you are cleaning.

Wipe Clean Flooring

Phenolic coated plywood is used as the kennel sleep floor.  The wipe clean surface is anti-bacterial and makes cleaning easier.

Custom Dog Kennel and Extended Run with Side Shed

Another bespoke build, featuring an insulated dog kennel, sizeable extended dog run and a combined storage shed.  We were sent a list of requirements as well as a floorplan sketch of the enclosure and shed layout.  After a few phone calls and emails back-and-forth, we were able to finalise a design which we were both happy with.  The structure comprised:
  • – 10ft x 6ft insulated kennel
  • – 14ft x 6ft storage shed
  • – 200 square foot dog run with mesh roof
The internal dog kennel had PVC lined insulation as well as a wipe-clean floor.  The plastic sheeting and phenolic coated flooring provides an easy-clean kennel and is also anti-bacterial.  Our customer requested full height kennel doors instead of pop holes for her Huskies.  Upgrades also included Onduline roofing over the shed, kennel and part of the dog run.  We covered the rest of the run with a timber-framed mesh roof.

Dog Kennel with Sleeping Box

Bespoke dog kennel having a cabin style sleep and dog run

One that we did back in August, this cabin-style kennel and run was built for a returning customer. He wanted an internal dog cabin that was easy to clean.  So, we hinged the front and added a wheel so that the cabin could be fully and easily opened.
We have been designing new styles of kennels for a long time, including before we started G&A Structures. Please get in touch with any ideas that you may have and we will work with you to get the perfect dog housing structure.
