How to Size a Dog Kennel

Getting a dog kennel large enough for your pet is a very important part of the process involved in buying dog kennel cages. Your dogs kennel needs to be big enough, but not too big. If it is too big, then he will not be able to retain enough body heat to keep it warm. However, if your dogs kennel is too small, then he will feel too claustrophobic in it. A dog kennel run, much like building a dog house, is the same thing. You need to make sure that your dog runs are open and big enough to allow your dog the freedom to move around, while at the same time not letting it be so big that it makes your dog feel like there is no sense of security.

Many dog boarding kennels offer large dog houses for small dogs, and small dog kennels and runs for smaller dogs but did you know that you can size a dog house for your dog based on how big your dog is? Whether you need a small dog house or large dog kennels, sizing is the perfect way to determine whether your outdoor kennels are the right size. To do this, follow one simple rule if your dog has just enough room so that it can stand up, turn around, and lay down in the kennel building, then it is the right size.
