How to Pick the Best Housing For Your Pet

Aug 28, 2008
Your pet needs a good home to live in when outdoor. There are many times when you have to leave for several hours and don't want to leave your pet in a cramped kennel for that long. Or, you many keep your pet in your yard but don't have an exterior fence to keep him in. There are many affordable options for pet owners to consider these days. The chain link fence has always been the only reasonable option to consider for outdoor kennels. Chain link has been used for many years for backyards to keep in pets and children from wandering off.

With the new modular fencing on the market there are many other options that are considered much safer, reliable and flexible. There are uncovered wires on the chain link fence that your dog may get his collar caught on and some chain link will not hold in the smaller breeds or puppies. Young puppies can usually squeeze right through the square openings. Today's answer to your pets unsafe housing is called Modular Kennels.

Modular Kennels are taking the pet industry by storm. Most are reasonably priced, easy to install and are available in custom sizes and shapes. Different sections can be purchased to build the exact size and shape of the kennel so as to fit your needs according to individual space constraints. Modular kennels are a step above other fencing in that they are safer and do not have metal wires or loose ends that may be harmful to your dog. For these reasons, Modular Kennels have become more and more popular among professionals and regular dog owners alike.

It is important to consider the size of your dog and how much space he or she needs. Many neighborhoods have very small back yards, so it is important to plan well with the area you have to work with. Inside this structure there should be a place for your dog to take shelter in such as a dog house.

Again, there are many sizes and shapes of dog houses, so choose the one that is just right for you. There should also be a place for water and food so that your pet won't be walking in and out of it. Lastly there should be enough room for your dog to walk around in freely for exercise.

Modular fencing is extremely easy to install. All that you will need will be listed in your instruction booklet. If you just follow the manufacturer's information, you'll have your kennel up in no time at all. It comes in sections that you simply put together with clips and you can make the kennel in a variety of configurations depending on your needs.

After construction is finished, then simply place your pets house inside along with a water bowl and you're off and running. There are options for dog houses, such as weather flaps that can keep out the rain or snow, so keep that in mind when purchasing. Also, if there are no trees in your yard to shade your kennel, there are different covers available to you. Hard covers and shade cloth covers are very popular to go along with your modular dog kennel.

Just remember, one size does not fit all where different breeds of dogs are concerned and where different size yards must be taken in to account. Modular Kennels are the only answer to that problem. Also, safety and comfort for your pet is the number one consideration in any kennel project, so considering the Modular Kennel is definitely something you should look at.

These Modular Dog Kennels are also used by professional breeders because of their versatility. Extra gate panels and separation pannels can quickly turn a single Modular kennel in to a six run professional kennel or more.
