Thread: Kennel designs

    Kennel designs

    I am going to be building a kennel block for myself this year and I'd be interested in seeing pictures of peoples kennels to try and get a few design ideas. Also any good ideas that people have used on their own kennels. At the moment I am thinking along the lines of the old pointer type kennels found on estates. Any help or ideas appreciated.

    Cheers.

    I am not planning on moving but who knows what can happen. I look over a cemetery that is about a mile away at the bottom of the valley directly below my house. That's about as far as I am planning going and I might even still be able to see my kennels from there!

    Cheers.

    yep I was always told so, like you see in old walls of houses
    I guess the modern way would be underfloor heating powered with solar power? but are we softening our working members up too much?

    drainage is key as damp concrete is crap

    Not wrong at all -used to be used in pig sty floor construction for the same reason.

    Every day is a school day but I don't think I will be using that idea!
    Kennels will be built on a proper concrete base with drainage etc. I am thinking about electric trace heating cable in the concrete to stop freezing in the winter. Similar to what is used on water lines.
