My girl has a breathing problem and i am thinking about getting one of these to keep her in outside instead of a crate indoors when we are not home because a proper chain set up is not really an option.. I dont really live were people would try and steal her but i would always padlock it anyway.

thanks aaron

sorry i didnt really know were to post this mods.

I would go with the second one.

If you really like the size of the first one, i would reinforce the sides with 2x4's and put a roof on that bad boy.

The one with a roof!!! To protect from weather and escapes!

I just experienced the downfall of chain link with no top through one of our members, she had her dogs at a boarding facility. Her two dogs do not like eachother and one was able to climb up the chain link and into the other run to start a fight!

It sounds like you only have one dog but if one can climb out so can the rest of them, it just takes determination!!

The roof is extra but i would pay it and the second one looks more sturdy and heavier. I would put a roof on it though dont worry. And i would put a kennel in there too.

This is what they say about the last one......

"All Steel, 8 gauge, 2" x 4" wire mesh construction. Full-swinging, dog-proof, lockable latch door opens inward and outward. One inch extended base legs elevate the kennel walls off the ground for easy cleaning to prevent bacteria build-up. Wire mesh is welded directly into the steel frame, then galvanized to prevent rust. No sharp or jagged edges. Easy assembly, clamp together design assembles in 15 minutes.

6'H x 5'W x 10L
Kennel and cover sold seperately."

i like the second one, and whenyou get it give me your address so i can come with bolt cutters and get rid of the lock and cut the wiring to steal Cali, and if i cant steal her, a piece of poison meat would work too......


even though you might not live in a high theft area, you must be very very careful....

what about a dog day care set up where she DOESNT interact with other dogs, but is in a kennel environment ? the kennel by me specializes in pitbulls, and knows not to let them interact at all...

what allergies does she have?? can she be kenneled maybe in the house in a giant crate instead of outside??

i just worry about people trying to steal or poison her..

I guess that is something i should think about but i am only thinking of her because she was diagnosed with a collasped treacha about 2 days ago. So when ever she gets excited she starts coughing and hacking. She gets it alot worse inside the house and i think the dust and everything thing else irritates it. I had her outside and she was running around and doing alot better out there. So when we are not home which is not even very long. She will be out there and she can get some fresh air. She doesnt have the perfect tempement and is territorial, she really wouldnt like someone coming up to her cage if she didnt know them but then again if they wanted to steal her they could probaly just talk to her and she would be fine but who knows and it would be in the backyard were people driving by cant see but my neibors can, noone has a reason to poisen her but that doesnt mean it wouldnt happen to her :?.

So i guess these are some things to think about.

You may want to have her wear a harness instead of a collar for a while. That sucks, I hope she is going to be OK.

You should contact the money order company ( the number & contact info is on the money order stub) and see if it has been cashed. If not they will be able to refund your money.
There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

10x10 = 100 sq. feet

5 x 10 = 50 sq feet

Height is really not an issue here, so why get the taller kennel for more money and less square footage?

You will need to put a top on it no matter what.

Second one . . .

I don't know about your dog, but I think my female would drag that first one with her. :D

My thoughts exactly, it looks like it might just blow over lol. If i did get that i would have to tie it down.

We have the first one. I wouldn't keep a dog in it that was built like a pit bull.
The 2nd one looks much more sturdy and with a top should be escape proof.
You'll need to put it on concrete or patio blocks so she can't dig out.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.

We have the first one for our pheasant. He lives in it. But yet he is too small to move it. We have a tarp over it.
Something definitely with shade though
