First of all, you need to determine whether your dog should sit on the ground or on a concrete pad. Concrete pads are easy to clean but can be a little expensive. In addition, they will also require more time to build and complete.
You should also decide the size of the dog kennel. For that purpose, you need to use a measurement tape and measure the width and length of the place where you want to make the kennel. Keep the area of the kennel big enough to ensure that your dog can move around in it easily.
If you want to build a kennel on the ground without concrete, you need to set wooden posts at a certain distance. You can also set up extra wooden posts for durability. Use an electric drill and dig the holes in the ground - these should be about 10 to 12 inches deep. Fill these holes with concrete - this will strengthen the posts and the dog won’t be able to pull them out.
After placing the wooden posts in the holes, you need to attach the fencing firmly with the wood pillars. Use the brackets for this purpose and repeat the process with all pillars. Meanwhile, do not forget to fix in a door for the exit and entrance to the kennel.
Inside the kennel, you need to build a small enclosed area or a little house for the dog. This house will protect the dog from the intensity of weather condition, and it should be built according to the size of the dog. You can also use plywood for completing this task, and use a saw to make sure the sizes of the wood pieces are as per your requirements.
After completing the building structure, now it’s time paint the house. You can choose any colour you want. However, make sure it matches with the surroundings, in order to ensure the kennel is in harmony with the remainder of your yard.
